Shaped Pouches

Shaped Pouches provide an unique way to ensure your products stand out in what can be crowded retail shelves.  Shaped pouches can secure added brand identity and attention and more quickly build brand awareness as the shape is easily remembered and recognised.  The shape may also enhance the user experience in terms of functionality of the package for the enclosed item / goods. Shaped pouches may also provide structural benefits to provide superior support and stability to present the item / goods better on the shelf.

They are commonly used in many packaging applications for confectionery and chocolates or specialist gift or tourist souvenir products, or in the beauty industry for face masks or all range of food items.

Shaped pouches can be heat–sealable and ideal for hand packaging with a bar or foot heat sealer or fully automated filling production lines with inbuilt sealing heat stations. Shaped pouches are light weight and durable, making them a perfect packaging solution for many product types.

A significant range of substrate lamination combinations are available to provide optimum barrier from oxygen and water vapour transmission, thus providing ideal product preservation and achieving shelf life goals.
