If you’re looking for the best custom packaging features, look no further, our team is here to help. The Packaging Lab streamlines the design process so you can launch your brand immediately. Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose your pouch style
  2. Upload your design
  3. Customize the appearance
  4. Verify the high-resolution print file
  5. Place the order

Knowing that the process is so simple, you can spend time choosing the pouch option that’s best for your brand.

Pouch Options

We offer various pouches to suit your needs. Whether you need a gusset for a higher volume or a flat bag for single-use products, The Packaging Lab has it all.

Stand-Up Pouch

Stand-up pouches have gusseted bottoms that give you more space in the package. The gusset also allows the bag to stand up, demanding attention on store shelves or your custom display. The bags arrive unsealed and ready for you to load them up to sell.

You can order stand-up pouches in 12 different sizes, ranging from 3.25” x 4.75” x 2” to 12” x 12.5” x 3.5”. Each package includes tear notches so customers can access the product without scissors.

Lay-Flat Pouch

Lay-flat pouches or pillow pouches are better for single-use products or flat items. You can also use this option for small portions since they hold less volume than the stand-up pouches.

Order lay-flat pouches in eight different sizes, ranging from 3.25” x 4.5” to 7” x 12”. Similar to our stand-up pouches, these include tear notches for easy access. Add optional features to ensure your product stands out in the store.

Pouch Custom Packing Features

Once you decide what type of pouch you need, you can customize the look by selecting certain film materials and finishes.

Film Materials

The white film provides a clean background that helps your design colors pop. Clear film is best if you want a window on the front of your pouch, giving customers a peek at the product inside. The metallized film gives your package a silver interior.

Film Finishes

A gloss finish gives your pouch a shiny appearance, catching the light and demanding attention when it’s on the shelf or hanging on display. Matte finishes look muted, without shine. A matte pouch can make a classy statement on a shelf of shiny products.

More Customizable Packaging Features

Your customization continues after finalizing your film choices. There are optional custom packaging features you can add to any pouch.


Zippers transform your pouch from packaging into a reusable bag. This feature is handy for food products, allowing your consumers to use some of the food and seal the bag for later. The Packaging Lab adds zippers 1.25” or 1.5” from the top of the pouch. You can see the zipper on the dieline for your pouch size.

Hang Hole

Round hang holes are best on smaller pouches. The 8mm hole in the middle of your packet allows you to hang an attractive display. Euro-style hang holes are available on larger bags. They’re 10mm high and 25mm wide.
