Yes we are able to supply and print paper based bar packaging.
Yes, we're able to supply bar packaging both with or without a metallized layer.
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.
Yes we offer a variety of different spout options. Standard fittings will tend to have a 10mm or 22 diameter. However, we do have access to a wide range of other sized moulds enabling us to generally meet the spout requirements for most applications.
All our spout pouches can be either filled on automatic production lines or by hand. For hand filling , a funnel would be recommended if filling directly in through the spout or via the top of the pouch.
This would very much depend upon the material and the waste processing stream available within your market. On the whole our recyclable pouches can be discarded within recycle waste bins and home compostable pouches can be thrown away with your food waste.
Typically the minimum order for a rotogravure custom printed eco pouch would be 5000 units for fully recyclable bags and 10,000 units for compostable bags .
Standard side gusset bags cannot be fitted with a zipper. However, reseal sticker tabs and also tin ties can be supplied to provide a convenient reclose mechanism.
Yes, we are able to accommodate customer requests for specific positioning of degassing valves. For such a request the typical minimum order for a rotogravure custom printed side gusset pouch would be 5000 units. However, we are able to reduce this slightly for larger bag formats with capacities in excess of 10kg.
Typically the minimum order quantity varies depending on the print process for a rotogravure custom printed stand up pouch it would be 5000 units and for digitally printed stand up pouches we can print from as little as 1000 units.
For gravure or flexographic printing we charge by the kg for digital printing we charge by impressions!
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 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.
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.
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.
Thankfully we are one of the very few worldwide companies that offer a range of different zipper options to customers. Generally customers tend to adopt either a standard fixed zipper or a pocket zipper. The pocket zipper was developed in Japan as a way to help speed up packing by allowing bags to be opened to their full width without any restriction. Upon heat sealing a tear of zipper can then used to access the product and act as a convenient reseal.
Yes, one of the many advantages of flat bottom bags is that you have five different print sides (including the base) , allowing you to convey significant brand and production information to consumers. If considering a rotogravure custom printed flat bottom pouch then we can commence production from volumes as low as 5000 units. However, we are able to reduce this slightly for larger bag formats with capacities in excess of 5kg.
Lead times are highly dependent upon location, freight option & quantity. Typically, a short run digitally printed Stand up Pouch / Doy Pack can be turned around in as little weeks 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 with an express service.
Yes, so long as the food you’re packing is not corrosive or oil based you’re good to go!
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 all the inks we use on our Kraft pouches are water based inks.
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.
‘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.
