Stand up pouches are manufactured with a bottom gusset which, when deployed, allows the pouch to stand up on the shelf in a store, instead of laying down like flat pouches. Commonly referred to as SUPs, this gusseted package have more space than a 3-seal with the same outer dimensions.
Many customers ask for a hang hole on their custom stand up pouches. It’s always good to be versatile to help your distributors sell more of your products, so these bags can be manufactured with or without a hole.
Pouches with Gusset
We can help you decide which configuration is best for your products.
The Doyen is one of the most common side gusseted bags. The U-shaped seal at the bottom of the front and back panel reinforces a large area of the pouch by sealing both the front panel and back panel to the gusseted bottom.
The K-Seal is the intermediate style. This is characterized by a K shape at the corners, and a flat bottom seal across the bottom edges. This style is similar to the Doyen in that the bottom gusset supports the weight of the product.
Also known as Plow Bottom, this style allows the content to sit directly on the bottom part of the pouch. In these bags, the weight of the product provides rigidity and stability, which adds volume to the bag.
