Printed pouches are becoming increasingly popular for packaging a variety of products, but many people are wondering if they are fully recyclable. It is important to know if printed pouches can be recycled in order to make informed decisions about packaging materials.

PE/PE pouch construction is fully recyclable. The pouch is made from two layers of polyethylene (PE) film, which is a type of plastic that is widely accepted for recycling. The pouch can be recycled in most stores.


Compostable pouch materials are materials that can be broken down into natural elements in a compost environment. These materials are typically biodegradable and can be used to create compostable pouches, bags, and other packaging materials. Compostable pouch materials are becoming increasingly popular as they are a more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic packaging. Common compostable pouch materials include paper, plant-based plastics, and bioplastics.


Compostable pouch materials include bioplastics such as polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), and polybutylene succinate (PBS). These materials are derived from renewable resources such as corn, sugarcane, and vegetable oils


PLA compostable film is a biodegradable plastic film made from renewable resources such as corn starch, tapioca roots, and sugarcane. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastic films.


PLA compostable film is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastic films. It is made from polylactic acid (PLA), a biodegradable and compostable material derived from renewable resources such as corn starch, tapioca roots, or sugarcane. When composted, PLA film breaks down into carbon dioxide, water, and biomass, leaving no toxic residue behind.


polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) pouch film is a type of plastic film used for packaging food and other products. It is strong, flexible, and provides an effective barrier against moisture, oxygen, and other contaminants. PHA is a biodegradable and compostable material derived from renewable resources such as corn, sugarcane, and other plant-based sources.


PBS pouch film is a type of plastic film that is used to make flexible packaging pouches. It is a polyester-based film that is strong and durable, making it ideal for packaging food, medical supplies, and other products.

PBS Pouch Film Compostable is a type of packaging film made from plant-based materials that can be composted in a commercial composting facility. It is designed to break down quickly and safely in the environment, reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills. 


Flexographic Printing: This is a type of printing that uses flexible printing plates to transfer ink onto a variety of substrates. It is a cost-effective method for printing on large runs of pouches.


Digital Printing is a type of printing that uses digital technology to produce images directly from a computer. It is a great option for short runs of pouches and can produce high-quality images with a wide range of colours and a high number of SKUs with no setup costs.


Gravure pouch printing is a type of printing process that uses a rotogravure cylinder to transfer an image onto a pouch or bag. The process involves the use of a rotogravure cylinder, which is a metal cylinder with an etched image on its surface. The cylinder is then used to transfer the image onto the pouch or bag. The image is transferred onto the pouch or bag by a combination of heat and pressure. The process is used to print high-quality images onto pouches and bags.



  1. Food Packaging: Printed pouches are commonly used for food packagings, such as snacks, candy, and other food items.

  2. Pet Food Packaging: Printed pouches are also used for pet food packagings, such as dog and cat food.

  3. Pharmaceutical Packaging: Printed pouches are used for pharmaceutical packagings, such as pills, tablets, and other medications.

  4. Cosmetic Packaging: Printed pouches are used for cosmetic packagings, such as makeup, lotions, and other beauty products.

  5. Industrial Packaging: Printed pouches are used for industrial packagings, such as chemicals, lubricants, and other industrial products.

  6. Fishing bait for printed pouches can include a variety of different types of bait, depending on the type of fish you are trying to catch. Popular choices include worms, crickets, minnows, shrimp, and artificial lures. Some anglers also use scented baits


Printed pouches have many advantages: Printed pouches are cost-effective and can be produced in large quantities. They are lightweight and easy to transport. Printed pouches are durable and can protect the contents from moisture, dust, and other environmental factors. They are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, making them suitable for a wide range of products. Printed pouches can be customized with logos, graphics, and other branding elements. They are easy to open and close making them convenient for consumers.


Choosing the right material is paramount when making the shift to flexible packaging. Selecting the right material for your custom printed pouch is essential for ensuring the quality of your product. Consider the type of product you are packaging and the environment it will be stored in. Consider the size, and make sure the size of your pouch is appropriate for the product you are packaging. If the pouch is too small, the product may not fit properly. If the pouch is too large, it may be difficult to store or transport. Consider the design, the design of your pouch should be eye-catching and attractive.


If you currently use plain pouches you may see a disadvantage in terms of cost to start with. Printed pouches are more expensive than plain pouches due to the cost of printing and the additional materials needed to create the pouch. However, you are adding more value to your brand identity and this will make your products more premium.
