5. MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITIES
Minimum order quantity (MOQ) varies by style and size of the actual pouch. The MOQ has to do with the raw materials being used and every step of production. The raw material MOQ is 6000 meters (in terms of film roll specs). Generally speaking, the larger the bag is, the lower MOQ it is. For example, an 8-12 oz coffee bag typically requires 30,000 bags.
If you are a start up company and cannot afford to order at minimum quantity for custom printed flexible pouches, we offer several alternatives per further discussions.
