But how stressing would it be if you we to package your product in oversized pouches or bags?
We will manufacture pouches and bags that will meet your dimensional bundle needs.
# 3.3: Eco-friendly
Currently, over 150 global organizations and companies in the world have endorsed a total ban on plastic packaging containers. On top of that, several countries and states in the USA have placed a ban on plastic packaging.
But plastics are not the only environmental pollutant form of packaging; glass containers to fall in that list.
Owing to the profiling of adverse environmental effects associated with plastics and glasses, customers have become more vigilant on product packaging.
As a product producer, retailer or packager, you need to understand your packaging pouches can speak volumes about the quality of your product value and mission.
For that reason, besides getting extra cautious on pouch and bags quality, you need to look into the aspect of pouches environmental friendliness.
How good can your pouches save the environment from non-biodegradable waste, carbon emission, wastage of resources and energy during manufacturing?
Remember, most customers wary much when it comes to buying of products packaged in plastic cartons, bottles, glass, and plastic bags.
Most fear they are going to fill the ecosystem with the harmful waste of packaging pouches and bags made on different materials which won’t break down easily or in time.
For that reason, we at TedPack are ready to serve you with quality pouches made of environmentally friendly materials.
Below are the main ways in our packaging pouches are friendly to the eco-system.
- When it comes to the manufacturing process, our pouches take almost 12% less the amount of material used in the manufacturing of other packaging bags such as plastics, cartons, boxes or glasse.
By using fewer raw materials at a time, it means we will be conserving the environment by using resources sparingly.
- During transportation, be assured you will save a lot regarding fuel. Our pouches and bags are lightweight compared to metal cans, plastics, and glass containers.
On the same point, you will as well take fewer trips because you can pack almost 20 times packaging pouches and bags in an area you could have packed a few metal cans, glass, and plastic containers.
By that, you will have saved the environment because few carbon footprints will be emitted during transportation through less fuel combustion.

On the other hand, most of our pouches can get recycled. With repurposing and recycling abilities, customers will get attracted to your products because they will know you are in the environmental conservation journey same as them.
# 3.4: Theft Prevention
As a product producer, whether in the line of consumable or non-consumables, customers are the ultimate decision makers.
If they love your products, they will purchase them more meaning retailers will come for more from you. Through such a chain, that is the only way you end up making some profit.
For that reason, as you think of product packaging and production, ask yourself; will my customers get the actual quantity of the product I package?
Remember product theft might happen among retailer where they can deduct or scoop some product quantity. If such happens, it means your customers will get a smaller share compared to what they would get after buying the products from your competitors.
With TedPack quality packaging, it means you will be able to prevent product theft. Proper product sealing may be through our heat sealing process, fitting of tear notches, pocket zippers, and many others.

Is it not through quality graphics?
Worry no more, with us at your service; be assured your product visibility will be something unquestionable.

Note, we use rotogravure, digital or flexo printing technology. With such kind of technology, anything that you need to improve your product visibility, you will get it under-on-roof.
Reason for product branding:
- It helps provide product information.
It would be cheating oneself saying you will reach every customer to explain to them how to use your product (user instructions), ingredients, and any essential message you want to pass.
For that reason, through the use of imprints, you can communicate your message. Customers can read anything on the pouches surface.
- Excellent branding and logo.
Through recognizable, good looking and attractive logos and labels, you will draw customer attention to your product a factor that will put you ahead of your competitors.
For you to ensure hold and new customers recognize your products easily on the shelves.
Below are some of the branding techniques we use.
# a. Hot Stamp Printing
Hot stamping technique is mostly used for special offers, such as advertisements on short runs, holidays, upcoming events, research or on developmental test-marketing projects.
This is a simple printing process where one or two colors get used. It does not take us long to have your bags printed as it happens to other printing types. 7 – 10 days are enough to have your pouches printed.
But, although we take a considerable short time to make these imprints, it does not mean it’s a poor quality one.
You can increase your product visibility using these techniques. Customers and new customers will be able to recognize your products easily no matter how the shelves will be crowded.
With hot stamping option, you can make some attention-grabbing imprint designs that will command considerable attention and improve customer – product connection.
# b. Custom RotoGavure Printing
Do you need your nutritional information, company details, logo or any brand imprint? If yes, then custom printing is the best option.
Our custom printing technique allows as to print using a wide range of colors (from a single color to Multiple colors), and photographic images.
For any graphics designing that you may need; talk to us. Let us help you make some graphics will sell your products more.
Custom printing takes us about two weeks regardless of the size or shapes of the branding images you need.
Our labels will be of high-quality something that will punch your competitors on their faces.
Are you not interested in shaking off your market competition?
Think of that label that you need most; we can make it a reality, something identifiable from far and unique. The uniqueness and eye-catching ability of these pouches will result in increased customer attraction.
# c. Screen Printing
Screen printing is more affordable compared to custom printing though it is perfect as well. The choices depend on you.
Through screen printing, we can only brand your packaging pouches using a maximum of 3 colors.
Note; what brings the difference between screen printing and other pouches is the fact that screen printing is only done on restricted areas.
But color overlapping is allowed in screen printing something that makes them look same as rotogravure printing technology.
That is either on the front part or at the back of your pouch. All in all, you can create some visible, good looking and attractive imprints.
# d. Digital Printing
Digital printing is the other technology we deem essential in our brand imprints work. In this type of technology, plates are not used.
It is a process that reduces printing cost on your side as our customer but maintains the right quality of product branding.
Digital printing makes it possible for us to print high-quality labels, images and other branding graphics in smaller batches.
For example, if you need a small batch of packaging pouches to be used for promotional purposes or as special offers, digital printing will get you some sensational graphical imprints.
It can also provide temporal product branding.
Note, if you need your packaging pouches printed in a short while; after you have submitted your artwork, your bags will be ready in 2-3 weeks.
# e. Label Printing
If you are in need of product branding, which is a necessity in the current market, then you understand the advantages attached to product labels.
Product labels will help new, and daily customers spot your product from far no matter how that shelf will be crowded.
Labels will help you create your brand awareness in a simple, cheap but effective way.
At TedPack, we use quality semi-automatic machines which can accommodate a wide range of label types, sizes, and designs.
We apply these labels with high precision which means we experience low rates of waste. Meaning, the level of packaging pouches that go to waste due to wrong positioning of labels is reduced by far.
The machines we use are of high speed a factor that ensures we deliver our packaging bags in the agreed time without delay or excuses.
All you need to do is seed as a PDF with the artwork specifying the type of labels you need.
You can download our labeling service specification form from this website. But note, the label’s artwork should leave at least 0.25” space from the right and left pouch side plus 0.5” from top and bottom of the same packaging pouch.
# 3.6: Self-Standing
When packaging some product such a coffee, tea, granules, snacks, and some other products, you might need to have self-standing pouches.
Self-standing pouches are packaging pouches that can stand sturdily on a shelf, pantry, table or any place where the bag will be placed.
The main reason as to why these self-standing pouches are much needed sometimes is they help in improving product visibility.
Meaning, your products graphics, pictures, labels and company logos will be well visible to clients even from far.
If you need self-standing pouches, we produce several packaging pouches of this style. Some of them are:
- Stand up pouches
- Quad seal bags
- Gusseted bags
- Flat bottom bags and many others.
If you need any of these bags, feel free to contact us in time.
Although you have read our pouches are self-standing, that does not mean they are rigid, we produce flexible packaging pouches which are made up of quality and flexible laminated material films.
Our self-standing pouches have side gussets that reinforce their self-standing ability.
# 3.7: Cost Effective
In business, there is a rule that states every entrepreneur should strive to minimize his or her inputs and work to maximize his or her income returns (profit) while keeping product or service quality intact.
With the use of Packaging pouches, you will have adhered to that rule. If you compare the price attached to plastic, metal and glass packaging container, you will understand by using our pouches you will have saved countable bucks.
To start with, on the raw materials used in pouch manufacturing, you will have saved more than 12%. TedPack packaging pouches use less material that means production cost goes down.
To you as our customer, it means your prices will get down (lower) by a considerable margin.
On the other hand, glass, plastic and metal containers are bulky during storage, transportation, and shipping.
For example, if you were to use two track or two containers to ferry glass, plastics, and metal containers, with our flexible pouches and bags, you will either need one or less than transportation or shipping space.
But remember, the same holding capacity for the glass, metal and plastic container will be the same to be held by our packaging pouches which are much cheap.
# 3.8: Easy to Use
The idea that our packaging pouches are easy to use is not a sweet talk phrase. There are several factors we have put in place to ensure your product end users will enjoy this.
First, we can fit several add-on features such as tear notches for easy pouch tearing ability, re-closable zippers for easy resealing and many more.
Much on add-on features will be discussed in the following chapter.
Depending on the type of product you intend to package, we manufacture pouches and bags that meet your needs.
For example, if you deal in packaging liquid product, we will get you some spout packaging pouches, if you deal in the packaging of granules, beans seeds like coffee you will need bags with tin, ties, zippers and flat bottoms.
Chapter 4: Packaging Pouches: Applications(Features)
Every type of packaging pouch has its unique usage or purpose. For that reason, we are determined to deliver a pouch type which will serve its purpose in the best way possible.
In connection to that, we have several types of add-ons feature (application services) we can fit on your pouches.
The main reason as to why we offer several types of add-ons is to ensure you product handler, and the end consumers enjoy some reliability, convenience and easy time while using your products.
Some of these add-ons are designed to make it simple for you to seal, re-seal, re-close, hang and even carry these packaging pouches with ease.
If you are in doubts about the right type of add-on to use, we can help you choose one or two. But one thing you should understand is the usability of your pouches determines all the add-on types we use.
We have carried enough research, and we are still doing our market research on the better innovative ways we can make our pouches more user-friendly.
With that said and done, we will take you through every types or style of an add-on we have. Each add-on serves a specific purpose on your packaging pouch.
Thus, it is possible to have several types of add-on on the same packaging pouch or bag.
# 4.1: Degassing valves
Degassing valves are also known as vents. They are used for letting out air from the inside of the pouch but not to allow any air from the outside environment into the packaging pouch.
For example, roasted coffee bags and pouches need these type of add-on most. After coffee gets roasted, it continues to realize some gas which is carbon dioxide for about 7 days.
But what will happen if you are a coffee roaster or packager who wants to maximize his or her income by packaging more coffee?
It means you will have to package the roasted coffee immediately after roasting to meet your market demand.
But, your worry will be the gas which gets produced which can cause pressure build-up which will result in a pouch or bag bursting.
To avoid such, we have degassing valves for you. They will allow the carbon dioxide gas to get out but allow no oxygen or any other gas into the pouch – they are one-way vents.
With these degassing valves in place, you will comfortably package your roasted coffee and any other gas-producing product immodestly after processing and ship it to your consumers with no gas emitting wait time.
You pouches and bag will not burst nor led to your product quality or freshness deterioration.
Customers will get your product in their fresh state.
Note; degassing valves can be fitted on to any packaging pouch.
We can fit them on side gusseted bags, stand up pouches, flat pouches, flat bottom and any other custom bag you need.
The following are two degassing valves we use.
# A. Wipf Valves
Wipf valves are also known as Wicovalves. Before valve were explored much, Wipf valves were used only on coffee packaging pouches. Today Wipf valves are used on any bag where having a valve is deemed essential.
These Wipf valves are technically made, and they consist of several parts and a silicon oil membrane that opens and closes depending on the amount of air pressure built inside the pouch.
If you are dealing with coffee, when carbon dioxide gas gets realized, and the pressure inside the bag rises to or above three millibars, the Wipf valve gets to open. The silicon membrane breaks (which is the opening act) thus letting the air out.
Once the pressure reduces to about 0.5 millibars, the membrane reseals again. Anytime when the pressure inside the bags increases, the valves does open and reseal once pressure equilibrium between the external environment and inside the bag equals.
#.B Goglio Valves
Goglio group of investors manufactures Goglio type valves. They are the second type of valves that we trust in the degassing issue. They are quality valves made of several parts such as flexible rubber discs, polyethylene caps, viscous fluid layer (especially silicon liquid) polyethylene plates, and paper filler.
They might sound somehow complicated, but we use a machine to fit them for perfection reasons.
With these types of pouches, we are sure your customer will not have to complain of anything. Your product will get to them in their fresh state.
Lastly, retailers will not come after you saying several of the products you sold to them their bags did burst after a while.
But note, valve positioning depends on the type of pouch you order. When making your pouch artwork; kindly consider our laid out valve positioning points.
Noted: TT means from the bag top to the valve top part.
BB means from the bag bottom to the valve bottom part.

# 4.2: Tin Ties
The ability to reseal packaging pouches is turning to be one of the most popular and loved characteristic.
For most customers, tin ties are one of the most loved and add-on. It adds user-friendly abilities, convenience, and reliability to your pouches.
Gusseted bags are the most admirable pouches in the current product packaging arena due to the fact they get to fit very well with tin ties usage.
Tin ties are added at the top of any gusset bag to make it re-sealable. With tin ties in place, customers can get access to the packaged product at any time and enjoy the ability to reseal their bags at will.
Such ability makes it possible for them to protect their product from contamination, bacteria, odor, and water vapor infiltration.
At TedPack, we have different sizes of adhesive-backed types of tin ties. We can fit this add-on on any style of gusset bag you order from us.

The re-close ability brought about by these add-on adds to your gusset bags is aesthetic.

But, do not get deceived that you or your customers can fit these tin ties by yourselves at will. Fast, you will spend much of your precious time of which you would have used it in something different, as well as to save your energy.

# 4.3: Teat Notches
There is nothing else that means much to a product user regarding product packaging than convenience.
Our several add-ons are all geared towards the realization of convenience and reliability. Packaging pouches which are fitted with tear notches are easy to open.
Tear notches are also known as V-notches.
A tear notch is a pre-cut that we fit on pouches to help the customer realize the point where they should initiate a bag opening tear.
In other words, a tear notch is used to coax end product user to initiate a tear.
Tearing pouches at any place where there is no tearing notch means you will use some extra force which is likely to give you a non-straight tear.
With tearing notches, your customer will enjoy some simple packaging pouch tearing action. Additionally, they will get some ultra-clean and a straight pouch opening tear.
Note; our tear notches can be fitted on any bag, e.g., stand up pouches, gusseted bags, flat pouches, vacuum pouches and many more.
# 4.4: Spouts/Spout with Pipe
Spouts are also known as fitments. Spouts have become most prevalent across companies that deal in the packaging of gels, powder, liquids, and granules.

For example, if you are planning to package some beverage or juices, you will need spouted pouches. They are easy to fill, seal, open, pour, and re-seal.
These bags come with a spout and a cap that is welded to either open or close the pouch.
Additionally, some bags comes with a spout pipe-like a tube that runs from the top to the bottom of the pouch. That pipe is used to help one such all the packaged product to the last bottom most drop.

# 4.7: Clear Windows
As a product producer or retailer, you must ensure customers like or find your products useful. Saying a customer is always right is not an understatement.
Such is the reason you need to have clear windows while packaging products that customers love.
For example, when packaging snacks, coffee beans, spices, granules, and some industrial products, you need clear windows or a transparent pouch side from which customer will see the product packaged in the bags.
Transparent or clear windows are used to help clients see what is packaged. Such is an act that helps to build clients confidence in your product.
We can fit clear windows on any pouch. It all depends on your wish. If you need transparent or clear windows on stand up pouches, quad seal bags, gusset bags, flat bags or any other.
# 4.8: Round Corners
One thing that you need to know is TedPack is committed to service delivery. We are after error-free and efficient services always.
As we were doing our market study, we realized there are some of our customers who complain of injuries as a result of packaging pouch handling.
We noted with a lot of concern that pouches with sharp corners sometimes do injure our esteemed pouch handlers, especially children.
For that reason, we opted to have round corners has one of our add-on features to avoid such injuries.

# 4.9: Gloss and Matte Finishing
Gloss and matte finishing are two different pouch finishing styles, but they do serve the same purpose.
These types of pouch finishing are used to protect your pouch’s surface from:
- Abrasion and scuffing caused by repeated customer handling
- Protect your packaged product from excess light rays
- Make them waterproof and lastly
- Make your labels and branding easily visible to customers.
To differentiate the two: matte finishing makes your packaging pouches dull in such a way your bags will be able to reflect harsh lighting.
But, the good thing with matte finishing is that your labels, images, writing and any form of branding will be highly visible something that will improve your product branding.
On the other hand, gloss finishing makes your pouches look bright or shiny. The shiny characteristic makes your bags visible from far. Customers will recognize you imprints from far thus improving your brand awareness.
Secondly, gloss finishing will reflect excess light rays thus protecting your packaged product from harmful rays.
Lastly, gloss and matte finishing does make your pouches waterproof.

# 4.10: Re-closable Zipper
Re-closable zippers are made up of two plastic track components which do interlock thus giving a packaging pouch its re-closable ability.
You will agree with us one of the main reason you need packaging pouches is to protect your product from the external environment during the shelving, transportation and storing time.
For that reason, we found having re-closable zippers add-on will be a perfect added advantage to your end product user.
Meaning, after opening their tea, coffee, baby food, snack, or industrial equipment bags, they can reseal it once again after scooping or getting what they wanted to use out of the pouch.
Resealability thus gives your pouches the ability to keep your packaged product from excess oxygen, moisture, vapor, odor or contaminants infiltration.
Depending on your pouch purpose, there are times we fit double or single re-closable zippers.

For that reason, customers have developed a purchasing habit where they need re-sealable packaging pouches.
They have realized the need to reseal their products after packaging them. Although flexible packaging pouches might be sealed by the manufacturer to bar off oxygen, odor, moisture or vapor, once the bag is opened, the packaged product becomes vulnerable to all the named spoilage agents.
For you to avoid food wastage due to spoilage, there is a need for ziplock pouches or re-sealable pouches.
On the other hand, product manufacturers and packager also benefit from ziplock pouches because they can package large quantities of any product they produce thus eliminating the tedious process of using single serve flexible packaging pouches.
One disadvantage of single-serve pouches is that when these pouches are torn open, they cannot be re-sealed. Meaning, the bag must be discarded.

# 6.6: Coffee Bags with Valve
Roasted coffee or grounded coffee is one delicate type of consumable. As a coffee producer/roaster or packager, if you are not going to take note of quality packaging technique, chances are your customers will not enjoy your product.
First, coffee especially after roasting releases carbon dioxide gas. If this gas type is left and gets entrapped in the pouch, your coffee beans quality will be affected.
The good thing with these valves is that they are one-way valves. They allow the carbon dioxide gas to get out but allows no external air into the pouch.
Apart from coffee quality getting lowered, the gas pressure inside the packaging pouch might result in pouch/bag bursting. Such will expose your product to other hazardous environmental effects such as oxygen, moisture, vapor, germs, and other contaminants.
Note: all the above hazardous happening and effects can get saved by one single add-on which is the degassing valve.
When packaging coffee, you need to your coffee bags with valves to ensure your product freshness is maintained. That should be your priority.

# 6.7: Child Resistant Bags
Although our mission and vision at TedPack is to provide easy to open flexible packaging pouches through use of tear notches and zippers, there are some countable products that consumers and product producers cannot allow them to fail into the wrong hands.
Some of these products are:
- Cleaning agents
- Medical marijuana
The entire list of named products thus needs highly protecting packaging which are child resistant.
Our Child-resistant packaging pouches feature some scientifically made slide-locking mechanism that is easy to open for adults but difficult for children.
All that adult users need to do is push a small lever up and then pull a zipper to get access to the packaged product. If one wants to reclose the pouch, all to do is push the zipper lock to the closing direction until one hears a “click sound” produced by a lever placed at the bottom of the pouch.
Contrary to the normal rigid bottles with plastic made spouts caps or bags and pouches with tear notches and zippers which are easily opened through tearing or sliding, these childproof zipper locks are simple to open, but one needs a specific technique.
Our TedPack child-resistant packaging pouches are made of uniquely selected material films which ensure total perfect barrier properties.
Some of the materials we use are PET/PA/NY, AL FOIL/PET/LLDPE among others.
With these pouches, be sure you will maintain your products freshness, aroma, taste, and flavor for an extended shelf life span.
Additionally, your products will be protected from external hazardous agents such as oxygen, moisture, vapor, odor, germs and bacteria infiltration.
Some advantages of these pouches are:
