Determining Your Bag Size

Layflat and Gusseted Dimensions

Layflat Dimensions
For each layflat bag there are three dimensions. The first measurement is the width across the opening of the bag. The length runs from the bag opening to the bottom of the bag. Gauge, the third figure in a bag's dimensions, is a measure of its thickness expressed in mils. To see what mil thicknesses we can manufacture and a little more about this topic go to our Mil Thickness page.
Gusseted Dimensions
A gusseted bag allows for your product to sit on a shelf. It is also perfect for a box liner -- it will square out in a box. The width measures across the opening of the bag when laid flat. The depth is the fully extended gusset. The length runs from the opening to the seal, and the final dimension is the Gauge, a measure of its thickness expressed in mils.
