What is your minimum order quantity?

Minimums are based on the size of the pouch or wrapper. (in inches) Normally, for a CR zipper pouch, the minimum is 10,000 – 15,000 per SKU/flavor. We do make exceptions for companies that have existing product lines and are testing a new product. (see next FAQ)

How can we get lower minimums?

Our pilot run program has a minimum of 2,500 per SKU/flavor, but there has to be a projection that satisfies the minimums set above. All of this is determined on a case-by-case basis. If you’re interested in the pilot program please send the following:

  • website or art of existing products
  • new art work or renderings
  • information on your filling equipment
  • size of packaging needed (in inches)

What structure is used for CR Zipper compliance?

As of now, the “qualified” pouch structure is 48ga PET/ink/solventless adh./48ga MET PET / 4 mil LLDPE. We can certainly offer other film structures, but the customer would be responsible for fitness of use and regulatory compliance. PSG’s CR Zipper has been tested to meet the packaging requirements for child resistance according to U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, CFR 16 Part 1700.2, and as referenced by A.S.T.M. D3475

How long do orders take to print?

Depends on your order quantity. Smaller orders take about 2-3 weeks* and larger orders take 4-5 weeks*. (*all lead times are AFTER proof approval) You will have to factor in time for new customer set-up, art digestion, and any possible revisions. All of which could add up to a week (or more) to the lead time.

How do I place an order?

Once you receive, then approve,  a formal quote from and account rep we will require a PO. A PO acts as the initiation of an order. We’ll need:

  • the quantity you want to order (at the price you were quoted)
  • shipping address
  • date you need it
  • billing info

How does billing and payment work?

First time orders are 50% down and the balance before we ship.  We can explore 30 day credit as we do more orders . (along with credit references). PSG accepts all major credit cards and bank transfers.
