Packaging for Small Business

If you’re a small business owner, you might think that the packaging options available to you are limited to bulky cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, or flimsy paper bags. There is nothing wrong with any of those things; but if you want to make a lasting impression on your customers, you need product packaging that represents your brand perfectly.

The Pouch Shop is proud to support small and medium-sized businesses across Australia and New Zealand. We have a solution for you, whether you're looking for unprinted, ready-to-label pouches or custom printed pouches with various designs.

Plain or Custom: We can cater to your needs

Using unprinted bags and pouches is a simple way to introduce your product to the market . Not only is it a straightforward manner of introducing your product, but it is also a cost-effective way for a small business starting out. At The Pouch Shop, simplicity does not necessarily mean sacrificing quality

We have a range of food packaging options made from food grade materials that can be manufactured with different dimensions, types, and finishes to best complement any product you want.

If you have been manually pasting labels or stickers on generic boxes or pouches and want to save yourself some time and streamline the process, we offer customer short-run packaging solutions. This can take your product presentation to a whole new level.

The right packaging design can attract and retain the attention of your customers. Being able to achieve the desired brand image through our fully customisable and made-to-order packaging has led to high client satisfaction ratings

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sustainable Packaging?

Sustainable packaging replaces single-use plastic as more businesses shift to a circular economy from a linear economy to reduce packaging waste. This circular economy means choosing packaging materials that can be reused and recycled to stay within the system versus ones that go straight to landfills.

Are custom printing options available for all your products?

All of our custom print packaging is made ‘from scratch’, rather than utilising the unprinted pouches we offer off the shelf. At the moment, custom printing is available for all our products except the flat bottom pouch, as we cannot form this pouch type through our digital print manufacturing plant. We have a large variety of pouches and bags to choose from that can suit your needs.

What is the cheapest form of packaging?

The cheapest packaging type might not be the best option for your products. Quality, shelf life, and aesthetics all factor into that decision.  We offer competitive prices and a team that will help you decide which packaging types are the perfect fit for your brand, and fit within your budget.

Are your products safe for food contact?

Australian food standards are met with all the packaging options we offer. You and your customers can be at ease knowing that they are safe for food contact.
