Flat Pouches

Flat Pouches – Fresh Packaging, Always.

Simplicity is the key. Custom flat pouches are a no-nonsense packaging solution that provides incredible versatility. These can be used with food, cosmetics, powders, edibles, household products, and more. The thick barrier film ensures that your products are sealed tight and safe from exposure, whether it’s air, moisture, or light.

Choosing the Right Flat Pouch

Flat pouches are available in eight different sizes. Here are a few recommended uses for our most popular pouches:

  • Extra Small 3.25" W x 4.5" H – This size is perfect for single-serve teas and sample sachets for beauty and cosmetic products.
  • Small 3.375" W x 5.5" H – This slightly larger pouch is ideal for small snacks such as beef jerky or dog treats.
  • Medium 4" W x 6" H – Medium pouches are better suited for storing and sterilizing electronics and medical equipment, such as hearing aids.
  • Large 5" W x 7" H – Perfect for bigger snacks such as chips and cookies. You can also use this with bigger pet treats such as wet food or bones.
  • Extra Large 7" W x 9" H – Use this pouch for large or voluminous items such as supplements or household chemicals. We recommend adding a reclosable zipper to maintain the quality of the product.

To help guide your decision, here’s a table of each flat pouch size you can refer to. To illustrate the change in capacity depending on the product, we’ve included both coffee beans and ground coffee as an example.
