Here below we state the technical production limits for the materials we use. We would like to point out that these limits may not occur at all, but in the event that one of the conditions presented occurs, Flexie cannot be held responsible, as this refers to manufacturing tolerances beyond our control.
In the sealing areas near the ziplock and on the bottom of the pouches, some colours, especially the dark ones, may slightly turn towards the predominant colour of the shade.
Since the graphic files are printed in series one next to the other before pouch cutting and forming phases and that the material can oscillate by some millimeters during production, minimal design misalignments can occur to the extent of +/- 1mm on the width of the pouch. On such occasions, on one side of the pouch a part of the other side of the design could be visible.
Please find below production tolerances regarding the main pouch specifics:
Pouch width: +/- 2mm
Pouch Height: +/- 2mm
Ziplock placement: +/-1 mm from the open side of the pouch
Easy open placement: +/-1 mm from the open side of the pouch
Eurohole placement: +/-1 mm from the open side of the pouch
Sealings width: +/- 2 mm
Materials that contain paper
In the sealing areas near the ziplock and on the bottom of the pouch, there could be some colour variations due to the heat sensitivity of inks used during digital printing. Specifically, this sensitivity can cause the melting of colour pigments that originate stains or chromatic variation areas. These variations are more evident when the colour hue is darker (and, therefore, the printed ink accumulation is higher). It is not possible to anticipate which is going to be the shade the colours will tend to, because it depends on the composition of that specific colour that is on the sealing areas. In order to avoid this possibility and to avoid influencing the aesthetic rendering of the pouches as much as possible, we urge you to contact our Flexie Graphic Department in advance and you will get all the necessary technical tips and suggestions to amend your design.
The cut made at the top of the pouch may have small imperfections due to the type of cut and the physical properties of the paper material.
Due to the inherent properties of paper, such as its natural porosity, dots may appear on the surface of pouches, especially in the case of designs with solid backgrounds and dark colours.
