When choosing your custom flexible bag there are a lot of factors to consider. One of our specialists will help guide you through that process and options including selecting your material, bag size, closures, and any additional features.

Material and Size

The material of your custom flexible bags plays an important role in attracting the consumer’s attention to your product when it’s on the shelf. Understanding the difference between each material and how it can be used for your brand will help determine the appropriate material and size for your flexible bags.

Making sure you not only have the right closure for functionality but also one that meets legal requirements is important when determining your custom flexible packaging. Whitlam Group can help you determine what closure works best for you. After determining the best closure option for your flexible bags, it’s then time to review any additional features for your packaging.

Straight Edge Closures

Straight edge closures utilize a pull and tear technology for a single-use, tamper-evident closure. Consumers can have peace of mind and a sense of security knowing that their cannabis products have not been tampered with by identifying if the closure has been torn or not.

Child Resistant Closures

Are you selling your cannabis products in states that require child-resistant packaging? Then a child-resistant closure is required for your product. It’s important to stay compliant with the state regulations for cannabis packaging requirements. Using a pinch-and-slide or pinch-and-pull closure will keep your packaging safe from violations.

Zipper Closures

Looking for packaging that provides multiple uses? Then a zipper closure is perfect for your cannabis flexible bags. Adding a zipper to your bags allows consumers to reseal and keep your products fresh. It also helps with transportation and rationing of products for future use.

Adding Color & Finish

One of the last steps in creating your custom cannabis labels and packaging is choosing your color and finish. This usually comes down to your brand colors and whether or not you want your bags to have a glossy or matte finish.

Other finishing options include:

  • Soft-touch finishing
  • Spot UV glass coating
  • Hot foil reflective stamping
  • Embossing

Cannabis Label Requirements

The cannabis industry operates under strict packaging and label regulations. It is important to understand what information needs to be included in your product’s packaging. These regulations differ from state to state, but overall there are a few essential pieces of information a cannabis product label legally must include for it to be sold in stores.

  • Effective THC & Active THC
  • Common Name Of The Product
  • Strain & Species

  • Activation Time
  • Lab That Tested Product & Test Date
