Layflat & Flat Pouches

Layflat and flat pouches can be used for almost any product from single serve products to nutraceuticals and everything in between. The difference between Layflat pouches and standup pouches is that the standup, as the name implies, are designed to stand-up at the point-of-sale location. While the layflat will typically be presented lying down or inside a carton as part of a product offering. They typically are created using 3 or 4 film layers like Paper/Poly/Foil/ Poly depending on the barrier level required.

Despite their simple, flat design, our pillow pouches are an incredibly effective solution for the storage and branding of products such as chips, candy, beauty items, household chemicals and more. Our pouches can be custom made for both resealable and single use purposes. In addition, we can custom print any design you need.

The pouch seals on the top and bottom of the bag and includes a seam on the back giving the product a common nickname Fin Seal. This traditional pouch is perhaps the most cost effective type of packaging as it uses less material than others. An almost identical construction is the Lap Seal which seals the back of the pouch without the “fin”.

Just because the pillow pouch is one of the most traditional options doesn’t mean it lacks the unique customizable features we offer with other products. We provide a wide variety of branding options including press to close zippers, valves, spouts, and fitments. Our Graphics Dept. is here to help design your custom pouch and print it with your logo and artwork. We do our best to make sure your packaging is constructed to support your required specs and products.

Our packaging designers will work with you to create customized pouches based on your product’s unique formulation, usage, life cycle, and the filling equipment being utilized. We provide technical services including advanced pouch prototyping, sizing, product/package compatibility testing, burst, and drop testing.

Benefits of Layflat pouches are:

  • High vapor barriers – Films that block moisture, oxygen, and aroma from entering or exiting the package.

  • Hang holes – Hang your packaging on retail shelving with our round or sombrero hang holes. 

  • Finish options – Choose from finish options including matte, soft-touch matte, gloss, and metallized.

  • Films – Film options including high-barrier, child-resistant, recyclable, and metalized PET films.

  • Tear notches – Consumers can open your packaging with ease with the option to add a tear notch.

  • Closures – Choose between press-to-close zippers, Certified Child-resistant zippers, or no zipper.

  • Variety of sizes – Pouches are available in a wide range of sizes to fit your product needs.

  • Print substrates – Films are available in PET, Metallized PET, PE, Recyclable PE, PCR, and BOPP.

  • Transparent or clouded windows – Add a clear or clouded window so consumers can see what’s inside your packaging.

  • Spot embellishments – Make your product pop by highlighting certain parts of your packaging.

  • Heat seal – Seal your lay flat pouches with a heat-seal to ensure moisture stays in, and oxygen stays out.

  • Puncture & tear resistant – Packaging that won’t tear or damage on the shelf, in transit, or with customer handling.
