1. What are your pouches made from?
We have two nonwoven materials available. Spunbond polypropylene is soft, breathable, and the most cost-effective material. If your application requires sterilization, our spunbond polyester pouch provides surface protection and allows sterilization of your item while in the pouch.
2. What is your minimum order quantity and lead-time?
It depends. If the pouches are unprinted, normally our minimum is 1000 pieces and the lead-time is 2 weeks. If pouches are printed, the minimum depends on the size of the pouch and the lead-time is about 5 weeks. Stock roll goods ship next day and custom roll goods typically ship in 4-5 weeks. We have been known to make and ship an order for custom pouches the same day it was ordered because in some situations, 2 weeks is about 2 weeks too long. We understand the stress involved in those extreme situations and we will do everything possible to get you product when it is needed.
3. Do you have stock sizes?
We consider ourselves a "made to order" production facility. However, we do have a few sizes which are ordered by multiple customers so we usually have stock in these popular sizes:
1 x 1.25 inch
1.5 x 1.5 inch
2 x 2 inch
2 x 3 inch
4. Will this material scratch my product?
Our products are made from the softest nonwoven materials available. After sending samples out for testing, we have never been told from a potential customer that our product caused scratches on their item. Call for samples to test.
5. Is there an additive in your material?
Our products are acid-free and there are no additives. After sending samples out for testing, we have never been told from a potential customer that there was an adverse reaction with their item. Call us for free samples.
6. Is this material lint-free?
No. This material is not lint-free. However we can state that it is low lint. After sending samples out for testing, we have never been told from a potential customer that lint on the material will keep them from using our product. Call us for free samples to test.
7. Will your pouches prevent tarnishing?
No. Our pouches are made from a material that is breathable so they will not prevent tarnishing. We suggest you place your item in our pouch to prevent scratches then place in a recloseable polybag with 3M Anti-Tarnish Tabs. Your item will be tarnish free for about 6 months.
