CUSTOM PRINTED COFFEE BAGS
Great coffee packaging sells more coffee: it's just that simple. Custom coffee bags can go a long way toward influencing the buying behavior of your customers. Those bean bag packaging designs are an integral part of your brand and your voice.
Stand-up coffee pouches and tea packaging pouches are becoming increasingly popular with a variety of producers, but those are just the first steps in ensuring that you have great custom coffee bags that will achieve your goals. Custom printed coffee bags can help catch customers' attention and let them know that you have a great product that will fit their coffee needs. With our custom coffee bags' low minimum order rates, you can get started quickly and easily.
An eye-catching design is the first step in your high-quality custom coffee bags. You need custom coffee bags that will stand out from the crowd: one that will set your brand apart and hint at your brand story. At The Packaging Lab, we help ensure that you have that custom, eye-catching design, whether you're looking for a matte or glossy finish.
There are dozens of coffee packaging options on the market. Quality materials, however, can make a huge difference for consumers. Many consumers are looking for high-quality materials that will keep their coffee fresh, allow resealable options, or stand up to wherever they need to go and whatever their coffee needs to do.
The features you provide can make a huge difference in your custom coffee bags. Stand-up pouches, for example, make it simple for customers to store their coffee packaging bags in their cabinets, while gusseted coffee bags can provide more flexibility for storage. Flexible coffee packaging, in fact, can prove essential for your customers. Stick packs, on the other hand, allow consumers to quickly pull out a single serving of coffee when they're on the go. Want to make sure your coffee stays fresh? Degassing valves allow CO2 to escape your coffee bags without letting oxygen into the bag, keeping your coffee fresh.

At The Packaging Lab, we understand the coffee industry and the unique needs of its consumers. Our premium packaging options include a variety of solutions that will help your company stand out from the competition, including stand-up pouches, gusset bags, pillow pouches, coffee valve options, and more.
CREATE YOUR OWN DESIGN
At The Packaging Lab, we know how important it is to have custom coffee packaging that fits your specific needs. We help you create a custom bag that specifically fits your needs, with custom printing, custom labels, and a design perfect for tea or coffee bean packaging. We aim to help your coffee company achieve its goal of recognizable branding for ground coffee, coffee beans, tea, and more.
We have two key options for our bean bag packaging: stand-up and lay flat designs.
STAND UP POUCHES
Our stand-up pouches are made of strong, durable packaging materials that are designed to help reduce waste and keep your product as fresh as possible. Our coffee packaging bags come in three types of materials: clear, white, and metalized, allowing you to select the barrier you need for your coffee. Stand-up pouches naturally adjust to the product they hold, offering easy transportation and storage options.
Customize your stand-up pouches with the features you need, including hanging holes for easier display or zippers for easy resealing. Our stand-up pouches are fully customizable, so you can put together the design you want while keeping your freshly roasted coffee in great shape.
LAY FLAT POUCHES
Our lay-flat pouches are designed to reduce waste and allow for flat storage. Like our stand-up pouches, these coffee packaging bags can be purchased in clear, white, or metalized materials so that you can select the option you need for freshness and convenience as you design your custom coffee bags.
Lay flat pouches are often ideal for small or lightweight options for your bean bag packaging: coffee samples, for example, or small quantities of coffee intended to be sold in multipacks. Flexible coffee packaging is designed to lay flat on a variety of surfaces so that they can be easily stacked on shelves. Lay flat pouches can also have hang holes added so that retailers can easily display them on wall hooks.
Lay flat pouches are a great solution for coffee businesses that rely primarily on shipping through the mail since these custom printed coffee bags fit easily in a mailing envelope and are naturally lightweight and compact. This flexible coffee packaging option is one of the best solutions for a busy, modern business.
HOW TO DESIGN CUSTOM PRINTED COFFEE BAGS: A GUIDE
Are you ready to design your coffee packaging bags? There are several things to keep in mind as you prepare the bags for your coffee business. Keep in mind that buying your custom coffee bags wholesale can make a huge difference in your purchase.
STEP ONE: SELECT YOUR BAG
Before you start designing coffee packaging bags for your roasted coffee and other products, consider the type of bag you want to use. Designs may fit differently on different types of packages, and you want to make sure that your design looks great on your chosen bag. Take into consideration whether you're using side gusset bags, planning for a flat bottom, or whether you need a degassing valve in your coffee bag—factor in features like quad seals, tin ties, side panels, and sizes. At The Packaging Lab, our bags come in a variety of standard sizes--and you want to make sure that you create a design that will fit the specific needs of your brand and your bag.
STEP TWO: PLAN FOR HOW YOU'LL KEEP YOUR COFFEE FRESH
At The Packaging Lab, we offer several selections that will allow you to keep your coffee fresh and ready to go as you purchase your custom coffee bags wholesale.
- A quad seal can help keep your pouches tightly sealed between uses, which will help keep coffee fresh in your custom-made coffee bags.
- Tin ties on your custom printed coffee bags can help tie off coffee and allow customers to protect their coffee from air exposure between uses.
- One-way degassing valves in our custom-made coffee bags release carbon dioxide, which is routinely emitted by freshly roasted coffee in the bag while preventing oxygen from reaching the coffee itself.
Remember, the tools you use to keep your coffee fresh can influence the lay of the bag, both on the shelf and when it's in your customer's home. Carefully consider how your solutions will impact the look of the bag and how you may need to alter your design to account for them as you plan to purchase your custom printed coffee bags wholesale.
STEP THREE: DEFINE YOUR BRAND
Branding is a critical part of your coffee company. What is it that makes your brand stand out? What do you focus on? Your custom coffee bean bags should be part of your brand story. Before you buy your custom printed coffee bags wholesale, consider:
- What colors do you use as part of your branding?
- What do you want to highlight for your customers? Do you want to highlight your fresh roasted coffee? Unique flavors? Commitment to quality? Where do you source your coffee beans? All those elements can be a critical part of your brand--and play into the design of your custom coffee bags packaging.
- What does your logo look like? Where do you want to place it on your custom coffee bean bags, and how do you want to highlight it?
- What is important to your brand?
When you know who you are as a coffee brand, you can highlight those key elements for your customers in your designs as you plan your custom printed coffee bags wholesale purchase.
STEP FOUR: CONSIDER PROMOTIONS AND EVENTS
Sometimes, you may choose to create special custom coffee bag packaging for events and promotions. Are you highlighting a specific holiday? Showcasing a specific promotion? With our low quantity order options, you can select coffee bean packaging bags that fit those unique promotions, rather than having to order large quantities of the same custom coffee bag packaging in order to meet minimums. Our custom coffee bags' low minimum order makes your life easy so you can keep your brand fresh and exciting.
STEP FIVE: PROVIDE CONSUMERS WITH RELEVANT INFORMATION
Consider the information your consumers are looking for when they select coffee from your brand. Which type of coffee are they most likely to want? What information do they need to push them into making a purchase, or into selecting a specific type of coffee?
Take a look at your brand and each individual coffee or tea product, then, as you design your custom coffee bean bags, provide customers with information like:
- The type of roast (light, medium, or dark)
- The flavor profile, especially if you're offering special flavors or combinations
- The best way to brew your coffee
- Relevant information about your brand, including sustainability or eco-friendliness
- The origin of your coffee beans
You can even use your coffee bag as an opportunity to tell your brand's story. Who are you? What sets you apart? Use a section of your custom printed coffee bags to tell customers more about who you are and why they should trust your brand.
TIPS FOR CREATING CUSTOM COFFEE BAGS
Chances are, your coffee brand offers several different roast and flavor options. As you design custom printed coffee bags for each flavor, keep these tips in mind.
1. Keep it consistent.
You want customers to be able to pick your brand out of the crowd: to select your brand from the shelf and recognize the different options you provide. Keep your coffee bags consistent across each flavor in your brand.
2. Pay attention to trends.
Right now, many coffee brands are showcasing simplicity in their designs. Others are highlighting things that are important to their users, including whether the brand is organic or sustainable, or whether the bags are eco-friendly. Keep your eye on the trends in the coffee industry so that you can keep your brand on the cutting edge of those trends. With custom coffee bags low minimum order rates, you can change up your branding whenever you need to.
3. Focus on your branding.
Your custom coffee bags are an important advertising element for your brand. A coffee bag may be the first--or even only--experience a consumer has with your brand before deciding whether to make a purchase. Make sure your custom coffee bags show who you are so that consumers can use that information to make a decision.
