Read on to find out more about the Side Gusset bag.
What is a Side Gusset Bag?
Side Gusset bags are the most traditional packaging choice when it comes to tea and coffee bags.
The bags are constructed with gussets that works as extra panels to expand the bag to hold more product. This adds more space and flexibility to the package as well as reinforcing it.
To further reinforce the bag most manufactures will offer the bag with a sturdy high-quality K seal. The seal is left at the bottom of the bag, and the top is left open for adding product.
K seal bottoms have a sealing at a 30-degree angles from the bag, allowing some stress to be taken of the seals and as such it is suitable for heavier goods, which makes it a smart choice for food packaging. This type of seal also helps the bag stand well.
The Side Gusset bags are mostly made with the finished seal ban being centred at the rear. However, some manufactures offer the seal ban to be fitted at the rear corner to keep the rear panel of the bag free to add labels, text, and graphics without having a seam running down the middle.
Side Gusset bags can be fitted with a round one-way degassing valve allowing the product to stay fresh for longer. The construction of the bag also allows for it to be made as a recyclable or compostable packaging option.
These factors make the Side Gusset Bag an excellent choice when looking for a high-quality storage and protection of the product at a competitive cost. `
The Side Seal Bag is a classic in the packaging industry
The importance of packaging is evolving and now more than ever it is needed to fully evaluate what you as a business need from your packaging. Packaging should not just protect and preserve your product from the elements it should serve as an ambassador.

The Side Gusset Bag is one of the most affordable bag types
The Side Gusset bag is a solid bag that hits a lot of marks when deciding on a packaging option. However, it does lack certain factors that other bags cover, which allows it to be at a lower price point.
Side Gusset bags are constructed with one seal band at the back. This means that this type of bag is not able to feature zippers that will allow the customer to reseal the bag airtight, as is the case for the Quad Seal bag.
Instead, they can be closed by rolling or folding the top part and securing it with adhesive tape or a tin tie. This is a convenient way to seal the bag but as it is not as affect as a zipper any product for consumption will not keep the same level of freshness.
The features of the bag makes it widely used as tea and coffee bags, however it is less used as food bags.
