Gusset bag and without getting too technical, a “Gusset” is essentially material that is added to a flexible pouch to create more space and strengthen its structure. Typically, a Gusset is added to either The Sides of a bag or the Bottom of the bag. Both styles provide brands and consumers with a unique array of advantages and features.
SideGusseted Bags: usually take up less space on the shelf. Some would argue, however, that side gusset bags are less aesthetically pleasing as a shelf display. But overall, side gusset bags still provide plenty of canvas space for displaying and marketing your brand – it mostly comes down to personal preference. SideGusseted Bags are a popular choice for snack food packaging, dry ingredient packaging and even frozen food packaging.
Bottom Gusset Bags: stand upright and tend to be more versatile in terms of size and shape. In other words, not all Bottom Gusset Bags have to be box-shaped. However, as mentioned above, the overall size of a Bottom Gusset Bags is often larger than a SideGusseted Bags, even if they are holding the same volume of product. If you choose to go with a box pouch style, however, you will have four sides available to advertise your product. Bottom Gusset Bags are commonly used for confectionary packaging, pet food packaging, and coffee packaging
