What Size Do I Need?

We know how hard it is to find the perfect packaging for your product.

That’s why we’ve developed core sizes to help you package with ease.

Stand-Up Pouch Core Size Fill Amounts

What is a Core Size?

Core Sizes are optimized for our printing presses to reduce ancillary waste.

This allows us to produce these sizes at a lower cost for our customers while lowering our environmental impact.

Please note that this guide is for reference only – we always recommend testing! Contact our Sales team to discuss your options.

Fill Amounts

Our stand-up pouch fill amounts are listed in max, comfort, and industry.

Max fill is the max volume while still closing the zipper.
The max fill is considered overfilled for most products, as it may cause pinching.

Comfort fill is a “comfortable” level of full, allowing the pouch to close easily without the look of being “stuffed”.
In our smaller sizes, comfort is similar to our industry fill amount.
In our larger sizes, overfilling can cause pinching, so comfort is the most we recommend.

Industry fill is 2/3 of the max fill. If you’re looking for a 1/2 fill amount, simply take our max fill and divide by 2.

All fill amounts are based on our standard zipper location.
