Custom Stand Up Pouches

Stand up packaging matters: every brand wants to draw people in, to have a presence, whether on the shelf or against competitors online. Custom stand up pouches are one of the best ways to grab your potential customers' attention immediately. We love stand-up pouches for many reasons: they're durable, reclosable, and because of how they stand, high-quality artwork looks awesome.

Custom stand up pouches offer visibility. When placed against competitors, it’s all about who’s packaging captures the imagination of someone walking past, whether in the snack aisle or at the farmer’s market. By utilizing the power of artwork that jumps out at customers, the power is in your hands – literally – thanks to a premium look and feel.

Every little choice matters when you’re a small to medium-sized business; sitting in those long meetings obsesses about how the art looks and what kind of materials to use. We know because we’ve been there. We’re here to serve as your company’s advocate to see you see your best successes to compete against the household names and take your business to the next level.

Print Films:

Soft Touch & Matte Print Films:
The soft-touch matte laminating film has a velvet feel with 100% EVA adhesive, including a microscopic coat preventing scratching and wear marks. The 1.5 mil thickness produces an outstanding bond. A high dyne level allows for surface treatments of water-based inks, foil, UV, or other top coatings. Soft-touch matte laminating film is the perfect choice for cosmetic and technology or luxury packaging.

Glossy Film:
Businesses love a glossy look that pulls customers toward the product, creating more chances to pick up the package and view the gloss effects from different angles, making your package memorable. And thanks to the high sheen, things like scuffs and smudges are just a wipe away.

Foil & Metallized Film
Metallized film packaging utilizes a thin aluminum layer, which adheres onto the polymer film surface, and will create a bright metallic film that pops with color and stands out against competitors on the shelves.

Stand Up Pouch Digital Printing

ePac Flexible is a digital company, there are no plate fees or exhausting back and forth when getting artwork on a package. Instead, we’ve designed our processes to be fast and easy. All you’ve got to do is upload the image, and we’re off to the races (or printer. Insert your own pun here.)

Because we’re digital, this also matters.
