Are you ready for more winter?

Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil says we're in for more winter, so this month we're featuring products that can weather any storm. Our matte frosted and high clarity stand up pouches are made with laminated material for extra durability. Although these stand up pouches have airtight zippers, heat sealing your bag is still the best way to ensure customers that your product is safe and has never been opened.

Here are a few tips about heat sealing:

First, before you begin heat sealing your packaged product, do a quick test on a sample bag or pouch to determine the settings you need for a proper seal. Start with a lower heat setting and work your way up to the right heat to provide a secure and smooth-looking seal. The sealer should only take slight pressure for two or three seconds to create the right seal.

Don't forget to place your bag or pouch between the sealed bars just above the tear notches (you would be surprised how many people seal right across or below the tear notches).

A thicker 5mm or 10mm seal may be needed for a more secure closure, and the thicker seal may also look better with your product.
Once your test seal is complete, check the sealing strength by trying to pull the seal apart. You can pull hard. If you find you can open the bag with minimal effort, adjust the heat or length of time for sealing until you have a seal strong enough to hold.

Now that testing is complete, apply the heat seal with your product inside the bag. Make sure not to overstuff the bag or get any product into the zipper area.

Now your product is ready for retail!
