The Advantages of Flat Bottom Stand Up Pouch Bags

Flat bottom stand up pouches are also known as gusset pouches and they probably represent the next big thing in food packaging. Expect to see a lot more of this type of creative food packaging on store shelves everywhere because the benefits are too good to ignore. The following are some of the main advantages of this type of stand up bag:

  • They use less film yet hold more: It's hard to find a bigger advantage than packaging that uses fewer materials while making more space for product. Since the flat bottom bag uses 12% less film but holds more, it takes much less energy to make them, and they weigh less. Both of these factors reduce cost and make them better for our environment.
  • Eliminates the need for outer cartons: The design of these bags takes away the need for outer cartons and thus reduces cost.
  • Replaces inner layers: Lamination of different types of materials as part of the bag design makes this possible.
  • They also have a resealable ziplock that actually works: This obviously makes for a more useful and fun type of bag for dog treat packaging and many other products.
  • Side gussets mean more space for printing: That extra space can be put to good use to help with branding and sell the product.
  • The flat bottom is secure and stable: This makes for easier storage and presentation on supermarket shelves.

We can of course make this type of flexible food packaging. All we need is the correct size and we can make a template.
