Flat Bottom Stand Up Pouches

We’ve talked a lot about standup pouches and things that make them unique. If you are looking for the right packaging for your product, you might want to take a look at flat bottom stand up pouches. Let’s compare flat bottom standup pouches with traditional pouch bags.



We know that standup bags protect stuff from moisture, germs, UV rays, and punctures – this is standard for all pouches. However, there is a new type of pouch gaining popularity these days. It’s the flat bottom standup pouch, also known as the side gusset pouch or the box pouch.


There are four distinct advantages of flat bottoms over other types of standup pouches:


  1.        Less energy is used to make them.
  2.        Less room is needed for their transportation and storage.
  3.        Less film (12% less) is needed than the regular standup pouches. Less film means more savings.
  4.        Hold more. Because of their design, flat bottom pouches have more volume than regular standup bags.


Apart from these advantages, these bags are landfill friendly and reusable. They have a revolutionary design, and can be used to hold dry products as well as liquids.


Why choose StandUpPouches.net?

You can get flat bottom standup pouches from many manufacturers. How are we different? Take a look at the following video to see how we work:




1. Rotogravure Printing

This type of printing is bold, dynamic, and offers higher quality than flexographic printing. It is done with engraved printing cylinders that retain ink, and then directly transfer it to the film. However, flexographic printing is done using polymer or rubber plates, which do not give high quality results.


2. High Quality, Low Cost Run

We provide the highest quality at the lowest cost. Apart from that, we also offer the lowest minimum run in the industry. If you want just a few thousand pouches for a startup project, we can deliver that. Our minimum run is of 5,000 pouches which is the lowest in the packaging industry.


3. Artwork Guidance

We have our own graphics department that can help you create the best artwork for your product. Our experts can work on your artwork from scratch, or they can make tweaks to what you already have.


4. Unique Process

We really work hard and listen to you. We try to understand your product and your business. Is your product coarse or fine? Is it heavy or light? Does it have a coating or oil residue? Is it susceptible to light? Do you want an opaque or a transparent pouch? How do you want to fill the product? Where will you store it- in a warehouse or a freezer? We use all these factors to create the right pouch for your business.


5. Scalable

We are scalable and can grow with you. That’s critical for the success of a business. You can start with just 5,000 pouches and then raise your order as your company grows. We can handle that load. We can deliver even more than 5 million pouches! Try us.


As a bonus step, we promote your business. We can feature your product on our website, and our team can write press releases and case studies about it. If you want, our experts can even sell your product on our website for you. We can also link to your site so that our incoming traffic can be directed to your website.


These are the things that no other pouch manufacturer will do for you. Where else can you get all these features along with award winning packaging and business support?

What LEGO’s Sustainable Packaging Teaches Us About Overseas Innovation

Since 1949, children across the globe have fawned over tiny, plastic, interlocking bricks.

LEGOs are a not only a classic toy but a staple in many households. Many kids beg their parents to take them to the majestic LEGOLAND, an amusement park where all their wishes and dreams could come true.

Why Nestlé, Unilever & PepsiCo are Banning Oxo-degradable Plastic Packaging

Originally marketed as an eco-friendly packaging material, new evidence regarding the potentially negative impact of oxo-degradable plastics has led a number of companies and governments to restrict their use.

More than 150 companies and global organizations, including Nestlé, Unilever and PepsiCo, have recently endorsed a total ban on the material in light of its potentially negative environmental impact.

Oxo-degradable plastic packaging, which includes select plastic pouch bags, is often marketed as a solution to plastic pollution because it claims to degrade into harmless residues within a period ranging from a few months to several years. However, oxo-degradable plastics do not degrade into harmless residues, but instead, fragment into tiny shards of plastic that actually contribute to plastic pollution.

Often, consumers think that because a material is biodegradable, it can be composted or even littered on the ground, because, it is thought, the material will break down into nothing over time. This actually ends up leading to an increase in pollution, since consumers don’t end up recycling or repurposing the material, and misconceptions about how the plastic will degrade leads them to end up putting it back into landfills.

What is important to note in this case is that although oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable, being biodegradable does not necessarily mean that a material is eco-friendly. Although these plastics do break down over time, the tiny pieces they break down into are still plastics that contribute to pollution — they do not degrade into nothing or into another usable substance.

For companies looking to make the switch to sustainable packaging, it is important to consider that sustainable packaging does not necessarily mean biodegradable packaging, and vice versa.

Why New FDA Guidelines Could Bring Big Changes to Pet Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are demanding transparency and accountability from all types of products, and pet food is no exception.

Greater scrutiny over pet food ingredients, and an increasing demand for responsibility, sustainability and complete transparency from pet food manufacturers is driving change within the industry. As the consumer demand for “clean” pet food labeling evolves as a major topic within the world of pet packaging, FDA guidelines are shifting.
