Surface Finish Options for Three Side Seal Pouches

The type of surface finish for the 3-side seal pouches is dependent on what you want to achieve.

There are two surface finish options such as matte and glossy.

1. Matte Finish

Matte finish is a smooth, dull but sophisticated surface treatment that exude some level of professionalism.

They are not shiny hence they do not have a blinding effect to consumers especially in sunlight.

They offer great printing surface for images and texts hence it is easier to read font on matte pouches.

The disadvantage of using matte finish is that they tend to be dull thus making the graphics dull too.

Besides, they are more expensive than the glossy finish.

Unlike a matte finish, a glossy finish is a shiny, high profile and slightly textured look of the pouch’s outer layer.colourful They are highly waterproof, attractive, and stand out easily on a shelf.

If you intend to have colorful artwork on your 3-side seal pouch then a glossy finish is recommended.

This is because the glossy background will enhance your prints giving them a brighter and quality image.

Besides, they are also great when introducing a new product in the market because they will easily attract customers.

Quality materials are used to achieve a glossy look therefore, your products are guaranteed safety and enhanced barrier against environmental factors.

The downside of using glossy finish is they tend to shine hence making it difficult to read the instructions.

They are also prone to dirt from fingerprints and are costly.

When using automated machines, it is possible to vacuum seal the pouches by sucking out air from the pouches.

Sealing can be done with a Seal band machine or a normal hand sealer.
