Die-cut shapes can reinforce your branding, add convenience by making a package easier to use, and even provide structural benefits such as providing additional stability or preventing “stress cracking”.
With stand-up pouches and bags rapidly becoming more common, shapes are a new frontier for brands to differentiate from competitors and stand apart on the shelf.
Customized Shaped Pouches
Pouch shapes can be completely customized based on your specifications. Examples include:
- Convex shaped pouches (ergonomic and easier to grip)
- Hourglass shaped pouch (ideal for liquids)
- Shaped pouches with rounded corners
- Shaped pouches with ergonomic handles
- Squeezable pouches shaped with built-in spouts (removing the need for a fitment or straw to consume the product)
From customized shapes to innovative fitments and spouts, Glenroy offers the capabilities you need to create consumer-centric pouches that stand out.
