Gusseted bags - expandable sides or bottom!

What is a gusset exactly?

They're an indent in the bag, so it allows the bag to open up at either the side or bottom (or both depending on the bag).

It means the bag can lie down normally when it is being stored without taking up any extra room, BUT when you want to use it the gusset actually expands the bag out so the bag has more volume inside for holding your products.

What types of bags can I find a gusset in? There's a huge range and it depends what you're really after.

Ranging from cellophane bags to kraft paper (with or without handles), matte laminated bags in a variety of sizes, plastic carry bags, we could go on, but we'd be here for a while.

We've put a few of the categories you can find gusseted bags below, but if you still can't find what you're looking for then give us a call on 1800 555 343 and we can help you (inside office hours) or email us at [email protected] 

 

Questions

What is meant by the term Gusset?

A gusset is technically a insert, in the seam of a bag (side or bottom) for added strength or expansion.

Do gussets help bags to stand better?

Sometimes they do, depending on the material. Our Paper Carry bags and Gloss laminated carry bags have side and bottom gussets and are able to stand freely, which can be very useful.

What are the advantages of having a gusseted bag?

It allows the bag to have more volume once it is opened up, meaning you can put more of your product into the bag. If it has a bottom gusset it allows the bag to stand as well. Majority of the bags QIS sell are gusseted in either side or the bottom, if they are we will have the measurements for them on the product page.
