Granola Bar Wrapper Template (Printable)
The perfect packaging for your granola bars depends on great artwork, and great artwork can only be accomplished with high-quality, printable granola bar wrapper templates.
These templates are technically referred to as “dielines”, and allow designers to mockup your design, review its most intricate details, and download your bar mockup PSDs or PDFs directly from your inbox. It really is that simple!
We’ve worked with thousands of designers throughout the years, and we’re confident that we can help you, too. Our easy-to-use templates make it easier than ever before to download PDF versions of your granola bar packaging and put in an order directly from our website.
Why dielines matter
Dielines are vital in the design process. Think of them like a blueprint for a house -- would you build a house without one? Dielines are the blueprint of your design, and ensure that all the physical elements of the final packaging are up to par. This includes the packaging sizing and scale, and the location of all the visual elements, the placement of any folds or creases.
Contrary to popular belief, dielines aren’t used exclusively for boxes or other rigid packaging. They’re used for a wide spectrum of packaging, including beverage bottles, food packaging, and even brochures or business cards. Essentially anything that’s customized can make use of a dieline.
Tips for creating dielines
At the end of the day, a dieline is a collaborative effort between you and your design team. Whether you engage with CarePac and make use of our design team, or work with a team internally, there are a few tips to keep in mind as you dive headfirst into dielines for your granola packaging:
As you can see, dielines are all but an essential part of the granola packaging design process. Have questions? We’re more than happy to help!

Granola bar packaging & dielines: FAQs
Whether you’re new to designing granola bar packaging or simply need a refresher, here are some of the most common questions we get about granola bar wrappers and dielines.
What packaging is used for granola bars?
Usually granola bars are packaged in individual-sized wrappers, which provide a barrier that protects the honey granola or nutty granola bar from the elements. This way, your product stays fresh and your customer stays happy.
Should I use parchment paper for granola?
While parchment paper might be suitable for home use, we recommend against using parchment paper for commercial sales. Simply put, the barrier of the parchment paper is too low compared to other alternatives and the granola will dry out too quickly.
How do you seal granola bars?
Granola bar wrappers are heat sealable because the innermost layer of the material is a heat sealable LLDPE.
What are granola bar wrappers made of?
Laminated Metalized PET is the most common material used for granola bar wrappers. This material is typically between 2-3 mil, and for high-volume production the pre-printed material is supplied in roll stock form and fed into a form fill seal (FFS) machine.
How do you package homemade granola?
If you’re making homemade granola, you don’t have to worry about using commercial-grade packaging the way some of our customers do. As such, you can use glass jars, or for longer term storage, metalized mylar bags.
What are Kind bar wrappers made of?
Kind bar wrappers appear to be made of a thin file metalized Polyethylene terephthalate. If this is the look and style you’re going for, we can certainly help you achieve it.
