Factors to Consider When Choosing Dog Treat Packaging Materials
Pet food packaging is a very tricky industry. First, you need to make sure your product is food safe and healthy for our furry friends! Your packaging should also be durable and sustainable so your customers feel confident in your company and its impact on the environment.
Other important factors to consider for your dog treat packaging bags include the below items.
Will the packaging design keep the pet treats inside safe from spoilage? Our dogs deserve only the best, so your flexible pouches need to pass the sniff test! Tear notches can also help keep your pet food fresh.
Your pet treat package needs to stand out from others at the market and should provide plenty of opportunities for you to include your company name differentiators.
There is no point in selling dog treats in a bag with low print quality. You need a bag that represents your brand in the best way possible with high-quality custom printing.
Product viewing windows
A high-quality product like yours deserves to be SEEN! Dog treat packaging bags with viewing windows will help pet owners see the organic ingredients inside with their own eyes.
Most dog treat brands require dog treat packaging that's as beautiful as it is affordable. This way, you have money left over for marketing, paying employees, and coming up with more tasty treats that'll please dog owners and pets alike.
Bonus: Consider DMET
For the best of both (or all!) worlds, consider DMET. With DMET, you'll have a high-quality barrier bag that'll keep your product fresh, but it also has a clear window inside of a metalized material. This gives your product a great backdrop with superior color fidelity, all while maintaining freshness! And yes, it's perfectly safe for Fido!
In the next section, we will discuss common materials we use in our pouches.
