Frequently asked questions 

Are Lprint’s pouches food safe?

Yes. All our pouches can be used in contact with food products.

What add-ons can I choose for my pouch?

For stand up pouches, we can add zip locks, tear notches, rounded corners, eurohole and degassing valves.

For side gusset bags, we can add tear notches, rounded corners and degassing valves.

What packaging formats do you offer?

Within our standard range we offer stand up pouches (doypacks) and side gusset bags. As custom packaging we can also manufacture sachets or 3 side seal bags and flexible packaging in reels. Different materials and sizes are available for doypacks and side gusset bags too.

What are the barrier properties of Lprint pouches?

Datasheets are available upon request for each structure.

What is the shelf life of my product in Lprint pouches?

It is impossible for us to determine the shelf life of your product as each product is different and reacts to oxygen, water vapour and UV light differently. We can provide you with barrier information for each material structure, but only food specialists can calculate the shelf life with this information.

Having that in mind and from our experience, a rule of thumb for most applications are 12-24 months for recyclable plastic pouches and 6-12 months for recyclable paper and compostable packaging.

How to choose the right material for your product?

Different products require different protection levels from the environment. Most common measures of the packaging barrier are oxygen transmission rate (OTR) and water vapour transmission rate (WVTR). Instead of creating an exhaustive list of possible barrier combinations, we have created a universal plastic structure suitable for the vast majority of applications. It might be an overkill for some applications, but it won’t do any harm for your product either.

Also, it is important to note that plastic free recyclable paper pouches and compostable pouches have significantly lower protection from environment and thus not suitable for all products. Moreover, wet products cannot be packed inside paper and compostable pouches.
If you are uncertain which pouch is suitable for your product, get in touch with us and our specialists will help you choose the best option.

What is custom packaging?

Everything that falls outside of our standard pouch range is considered custom packaging in our standards. If you are looking for different sizes, materials or quantities, get in touch with us at [email protected] and we can talk more about it.

Why is flexible packaging better than rigid packaging?

Flexible packaging is lightweight in nature and uses significantly less materials for production. Furthermore, it has much higher product-to-packaging ratio, meaning it’s transportation and warehousing costs will be lower too.
