Types of Personalized Candy Bags
Stand Up Pouch
Stand Up Pouches are one of our customer’s most popular bag configuration is the stand up pouch. The name says it all, as these bags are outfitted with a bottom gusset, that when deployed, allows the pouch to “stand up” on a shelf in a store.
3 side seal pouches are a fantastic choice when you do not need the product to sit on a shelf. Candy, herbs, and jerky are just a few examples where this would be a viable configuration.
Fin Seal pouches are a form fill design and is used in certain fill machines. It is available both as a finished pouch and a fin seal tubing ready configuration. Fin Seal pouches are a traditional pouch design that has been used successfully for years in candy packaging designs.
Choosing the Right Material for Your Custom Candy Bags
The first thing you should do when determining your wholesale candy packaging budget is to understand your market position:
- What Location: Gas Station vs. Whole Foods?
- What Lifestyle: Organic v. Mass appeal?
- What Longevity: Shelf Life or Grab and go?
If you are trying to hit very tight margins, we would recommend CBOPP, thin films, and plate printed, no feature bags. Alternatively, if you have a higher end product, that needs to stay on the shelf for a longer period, we would move into more substantive barriers like our CareFoil or CareSilver material, full color printing and add features to the pouch.
CareSilver is our line of Vapor Metalized polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films also known as MET/PET or VMPET. Metalized PET is an economical and effect pouch solution! CareSilver is a great material and is free of toxins – BPA, TSE and sulfur, and Phthalates.
Clear barrier films formulated with PET, PE, CPP, and BOPP are a keystone of barrier packaging. Clear base barriers are both affordable and provide quality protection against moisture + oxygen.
CareFoil is our line of flexible foil barrier packaging materials. Aluminum foil pouches provide an incredible barrier to both oxygen and water. Our CareFoil material is a Mylar foil pouch material that gives you the barrier of Aluminum with the added strength of Mylar.
Picking the Right Bag for Your Candy Packaging
Consumers generally store candy in the pantry on the shelf. Candies generally require less barrier than some other products because of their sugar content.
Taffy, Caramel, Nougats
These candies should be individually wrapped to reduce clumping, and allow your customer to pick them out individually to eat. Clear cellophane or printed roll stock is a great choice for the candy packaging design for these sweet treats. Especially if you're looking to show off each delectable flavor, you'll need individual wrapping to do so.
Do not mix candies that absorb moisture such as caramels, mints and hard candies with candies that lose moisture such as fudge and creamy candies. While the barrier of your outer custom printed candy packaging will prevent the moisture from getting out of the bag, the moisture will migrate between the candies. Storing these sweets in the same container will cause the harder candies to become sticky. To make sure that hard candies stay hard, sprinkle with finely ground sugar and store in an air-tight jar.
Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and fermented seeds of the cacao tree. Chocolate is not actually candy, but a lot of people refer to it as such. Now many chocolate candy flavor exist surely consumer enjoy such as chocolate mints, dark, milk, chocolate caramel and more. Make personalized candy bags for your chocolate candies to stand out the best way you can offer to your customer.
As a wedding favor or as gift bags, our pouches are perfect for storing your chocolate goodies!

Candy Packaging FAQs
Whether you are new to custom printed candy packaging or a seasoned pro you may have a few questions about our products and process.
Q: What type of candy can I package with your pouches?
The sky's the limit! We’ve done pouches for gummies, chocolate covered pretzels, candy canes, chocolate, caramels, you name it, we can pouch it.
Q: Can I do a pouch with a place to see the candy?
Yes, that is known as a “window.” Simply lay it out in your art file. Windows are commonly shaded light grey or blue to call them out.
Q: I want my pouch to hold 4 ounces of my candy. What size should I use?
This is tricky as different candies are different volumes. We recommend using pouch dimensions (width x length x gusset). You can order samples here, or if there’s someone in your market with a perfectly sized pouch, break out the measuring tape and let’s use those.
Q: Loading and sealing the bags is taking a lot of time. Any ideas?
If you’re using a three seal flat pouch, we recommend switching to what’s known as a “bottom fill configuration” that means everything is nicely sealed at the top and you put the candy through the bottom and heat seal there. It saves a lot of time.
Q: Can I print on both sides of the pouch?
Yes, of course. Our candy clients often have nutritional information, UPC codes and ingredients on the back of the pouch. You can even print on the bottom of a stand up pouch, that’s another spot for a UPC code or web address.
