How do I choose the right size stand up pouch?
Copious Bags® are available in 5 different styles, ranging from natural kraft stand up bags to matte frosted stand-up bags. To choose your perfect size bag, please watch the videos below, which demonstrates the differences between each size.
When choosing the right size bags for your products, it’s important to keep in mind the height and the volume of the product you are packaging. The volume of your product plays a major role in choosing the right sized stand-up bag.
For example, fine salt takes up less volume than whole coffee beans. The bulkier the product, the more space required. We suggest always going one size larger to accommodate your product. So this brings us to three measurements that might be helpful in finding the right size pouch for your product. Those three measurements are the fillable area, the area above the zipper.
The fillable area refers to the measurement of the bag below the zipper line to the bottom of the bag.The space above the zipper is often used to apply labels/stickers. It is also the area that can be heat sealed to preserve your product and to ensure a tamper evident seal above the tear notches. It’s very important to remember that this area is included in the overall dimensions of the bags BUT it is not a fillable area. We have seen it so many times, where someone assumes that a bag size of 4″ x 6″ for example, will fit their product measuring 4″ x 5″ (sorry, but it’s not going to fit).
