There is a difference between custom production and custom printing. We refer to custom production to the process of manufacturing a bespoke size & polymer composition just for your product, this typically starts from 5000 Units. However, we already have pre-cut molds & compositions for 100’s of standard product sizes that are used by brands every day that can be custom printed from only 500 Units.
Lead times are highly dependent upon location, freight option & quantity. Typically, a short run digitally printed can be turned around in 3 weeks from order date to your door. Larger orders and other print options such as rotogravure lead times can be as short as 4-6 weeks on an express air service and 8-10 weeks with that standard sea freight. However, we understand sometimes re-orders are often left to last minute, thus we can split quantities between air and sea to keep production economical and quick!
‘Compostable’ and ‘biodegradable’ are often thought of interchangeably, but they are distinct. A compostable material will be broken down in composting conditions, resulting in nutrients for plants to grow in. Whereas, biodegradable material will be broken down by biological processes, resulting in non-toxic components (water, carbon dioxide and biomass). ‘Oxo-Degradable’ on the other hand is slightly different, these are plastic’s that are infused with additives to degrade them, catalysing the process. Often solutions that are plastic free, compostable or biodegradable options aren’t suitable for certain products due to limited barrier properties which is where oxo-degradable comes in this provides the shelf life and barrier properties while also degrading. The infused additive begins degrading the material after approximately 12 months in which this degrades to micro plastics which then degrade completely over time. The questions that arises from this is, is which of the three is more environmentally friendly however, the question you should be asking is which material is suitable for your product and upon that deciding the most environmentally friendly solution. That said, in our opinion Compostable packaging is the most environmentally friendly solution on the market today.
This question has many variables to consider, first and foremost the material used, the product is packed and thirdly the environment the product will be stored in. More information can be found on our eco-packaging guide.
We’re now able to digitally print all forms of flat bottom bags in a house with MOQ’s starting from only 1000 Units, as well as that we offer gravure print options for larger quantities requiring a more vibrant finish. For smaller quantities, we provide a screen print option on all our standard stock sizes.
For flat bottom bags general lead time range from 3 to 8 weeks depending on the printing method used and location .
Yes, however it’s important to understand unlike plastic on which ink can sit, Kraft paper is a far more porous material which causes the finish to appear less vibrant finish as opposed to a printing on a laminated surface using any of our three printing methods.
Yes all the inks we use on our Kraft pouches are water based inks.
Yes, we have both fully compostable valves and zippers, although to put in an ordinary recycling bin you would just have to tear either off!
Yes, so long as the food you’re packing is not corrosive or oil based you’re good to go!
The only difference really is when it comes to a merchandising perspective, if you opt for a three side seal format the key advantage you have is you have no seal running down the back of it, making it a great option to showcase your creative designs. As well as that with three side seal formats you have the ability to add a Euro Slot allowing your product to be hung in store as opposed to central seal formats where it’s still achievable but runs the risk of breaking the seal.
There are three different ways to fill your pouch: 1) We can leave the top edge open for you to heat seal 2) We can leave the bottom edge open for you to heat seal 3) You can your substance through the actual spout 4) If you’re packing a product with greater viscosity we can also provide a reseal.
For standard sizes with custom printing and colour and embossing it can take between 4 – 6 weeks. For custom shapes and sizes, which require tooling and molding it can be produced within 8-10 weeks from artwork approval.
Yes! Just send us your logo or branding that you want on your plastic scoop and we’ll get one of our CAD designers to convert it to a 3D model!
For gravure or flexographic printing we charge by the kg for digital printing we charge by impressions!
There’s no best type of coffee packaging as such, you can pack your coffee in our stand up pouches, flat bottom bags, tin tie bags, side gusset bags and even our spout pouches, as long as there is a flat surface for the valve you can use any style of packaging you please. However, the industry ‘standard’ styles are flat bottom bags and side gusset bags. Check out our Swiss Tasche Range.
This depends on the type of coffee you are packing; freshly roasted coffee gives off nearly double it’s the physical volume in carbon dioxide which needs to escape somewhere. However, on the same note oxygen exposure can reduce the freshness of your coffee grains. Thus, a simple one-way valve allows the carbon dioxide to escape, while keeping the oxygen out. Further to that we produce all our valves in house to insure quality as cheap outsourced valves can often leave product vulnerable.
Yes! We have and can do both using a BOPA & PET multilayer composition which is fully transparent. This can be further formatted as part printed part clear packaging for your bath salts. Example include Asper & Jones and a few others, reach out to us for a full case study!
Recently we have found increased use in spout pouches and also the incorporation of scoops as the brands we work with was finding many customers were either over or under dispensing their product or getting droplets of water into their packaging leaving the rest unusable! With spout pouches, our Swiss Aqua range can be designed to provide a measure of the portion dispensed while also limited the area of exposure to just the cap.
Increased shelf life, greater product security against contamination, greater visibility due to a greater vertical surface area, lower carbon footprint due to lighter weight and lower storage cost.
If you go for one of our products manufactured using our bespoke multi-layer films potentially all material finishes are suitable including Kraft paper finishes, metallic finishes and more.
Yes! We can produce 100% recyclable snack packaging, compostable packaging, oxo-degradable packaging and Kraft paper packaging. However, it’s important to note the use of these solutions are dependent upon your product e.g. whether it secretes any oils, it’s general shelf and its reaction to different materials.
Stand up pouches is only one of the formats we manufacture, we provide all types of construction packaging for some of biggest players in the market such as Hexstone, Block Blitz, Hozelock & more!
We have 3 manufacturing sites in Europe & Asia all of which have a minimum capability of producing 500 Tons P/Month. All our sites are ISO9001/2000 certified.
We can supply packaging ranging from 10g all the way up to 5kg, all of which is tested, as you’re bulk packing your fish bait we can also provide carry handles to make it easier for your consumers on their fishing expeditions!
We can custom manufacture any shape or size you want, however, our Swiss Aqua range would be most suitable for this, especially with only a few adopters in the industry at the moment this could be a great way in.
Yes! All our construction packaging is made bespoke to fulfil your needs, we can adjust thicknesses to further enhance any properties you may want e.g. in a transparent or window format.
Yes! If you’re hand packing, you need to ensure the packaging you select is wide enough to fit your scoop, without it having to stretch and crease the bag. On the other hands you could purchase a smaller scoop but this will reduce your packing efficiency. For machine packing, all our packaging is suitable, we also have our own machines which we can test your packaging with!
Widely available on the market, no. At Swiss Pack, Yes! We’re proud to announce we’re one of the first manufacturers to offer 100% recyclable bath salt packaging that offers the same level barrier protection and reseal ability as our multi-layer film solution. Tt has been a long & tricky process to get there due to the corrosive nature of the substance, but it is now 100% achievable.
Flexible pet food packaging has many advantages in contrast to traditional tinned packaging first and foremost the reduced production cost and delivery weight allows for either a cost advantage or greater margin on your products while also adding ethical appeal due to its reduced carbon footprint. As well as this, from a merchandising perspective flexible packaging is far less prone to retail or logistical damage.
Yes, in fact one key advantage of going flexible is the ability to add various types of reseal options, protecting your pet’s food from moisture and environmental contamination, that can alter both taste while also leaving your pet ill. As well as this tinned packaging is often lined with a variety of toxic chemicals to absorbed by food that can cause cancer, infertility, obesity and more in both animals and humans.
Yes and No, it depends on the type of product being packed, with our recyclable range we’re now able to pack some of the more corrosive items such as bath salts without any issues therefore meat and edibles is not so much of an issue.
