Pouches are a great packaging solution for multiple different products including but not limited to cereals, snacks, coffee, drink mixes, soups, spices, candy, garden supplies and powders. The material used in pouch packaging is sealed using heat which creates a tight seal to ensure freshness: excellent light, oxygen and moisture barriers | sustainable options available.
HEAT SEAL BAR WRAPS are ideal for food products that do not contain chocolate or any other heat affected ingredients. The material used to make the packaging is sealed together using heat which ensures an airtight closure that will keep your product fresh: Tailored seal characteristics and slip properties maximize filling machine productivity | hermetic seals for freshness | material offerings provide design flexibility | customized lamination available.
COLD SEAL BAR WRAPS are an excellent choice for food products that contain chocolate or some other heat sensitive ingredients. No heat is required to seal the package because a cohesive agent is placed on the backside of the wrap. This agent creates an excellent seal but only sticks to itself keeping everything mess free: outstanding gloss | high moisture, oxygen and aroma barriers high speed application | great for heat-sensitive products such as energy bars, ice cream, chocolate, soap packaging and much more!

Matte varnishes and finishes will give your product a modern and sophisticated look especially when paired with a higher gloss finish. This enhancement adds a subtle but impressive upgraded effect to any product or package.
Metallic inks can be an efficient and less expensive alternative to aluminum or other metal bottles. It gives packaging a high end aesthetic by appearing to be printed directly on a metal container. Metallic inks can also be paired with other colors, blue for example, to create a package that's appealing and looks like the container is made of a blue metal material.
Pearlescent varnish gives a subtle but unique look to products and the brands who use it in their packaging. The iridescent, glittery effect works very well with feminine-centered products like makeup, jewelry, certain vitamins and anything that deserves a "pretty" yet sophisticated packaging strategy.
Color-Shifting Inks are extremely unique and can create an edgy feel to any product package. As the consumer's viewing angle changes, the ink changes shades making one side of the package look a different color than another side. Available in a wide range of color variations, color shifting inks work well on contoured containers.
Counterfeit packaging can compromise brand loyalty. Unique packaging designs helps your brand stand out and makes it more difficult to duplicate. Including security solutions in your product packaging is an important anti-counterfeiting measure.

MICRO-TEXT CAPABILITIES - prints text so small it is invisible to the naked eye, difficult for counterfeiters to replicate and easily hidden within the package design.
