Side-Gusseted Pouches

The side gusseted bags is a common bag configuration for large format pet food bags because it conforms well to the food pellets and works well with heavy weights.

Square Bottom Bag

Stand-up block bottom bag is typically chosen for pet foods that come in smaller weights like 5lbs or 10lbs, though pet food bags with weights up to 25 pounds can be used with a Square Bottom Bag.


Quad seal pouches have a reputation  for durability and are commonly used in pet food package. They are great for bags that don't require a zipper re-closure, or other features.

Make Your Bag Stand Out 

Along with the different types of bag configurations, you can choose between a variety of finishes to make your product pop. Consider something like a metallic finish to bring the customer’s eye to your packaging before your competitor’s. You could also consider a spot gloss finish / spot matte finish for both the appeal and durability. We have a wide variety of finishes, so look at all of them when creating your very own custom pet food package.

Metalic Effects

Metallic finishes could be applied to the whole bag or to just a logo. Metallic finishes can really catch the consumer's eye and grab attention. It's a more advanced packaging effect than you typically see in the pet food aisle! 

Spot Gloss / Matte

Anther advanced technique is spot gloss and spot matte, which combine the two finishes on the same surface. This finish combination can help make logos and other design elements really shine.


Plastics, foils the consumer is accustomed to big plastic bags with pictures of dogs, and cats, how about a Kraft exterior pouch which takes the totally opposite approach.
