How are valves, tin tie, hang holes and labels applied to packaging?
Valves, tin ties, hang holes, and labels are commonly used in packaging to enhance functionality and branding. Here is how we apply each of these elements to your packaging:
1. Valves: Valves are typically used in flexible packaging for coffee, tea, and other perishable products that require degassing. They are applied to the packaging either during or after the manufacturing process by heat-sealing a valve onto the package. The valve allows for the release of gases from the package while preventing oxygen from entering, preventing bags from bloating and keeping the packaged product fresh for a longer period.
2. Tin ties: Tin ties are used as a way to reseal bags of dry goods, such as coffee, tea, and baked goods. They are typically applied to the packaging after the manufacturing process by affixing the adhesive tin tie strip along the top of the bag. The tin tie can be folded over the edges to seal the bag, making it easy to reopen and reseal as needed.
3. Hang holes: Hang holes are used to display products on pegs or hooks in a retail setting. They are applied to the packaging either during the manufacturing process by punching a hole through the packaging material. The size and shape of the hole can be customized to fit the product and the display method.
4. Labels: Labels are used for branding, product information, and regulatory compliance. They are typically applied to the packaging after the manufacturing process by semi-automatically affixing the adhesive label onto the package. Labels can be printed with customized designs, product information, and barcodes.
