What do I need to get a quote?

We need answers to all of these questions before ordering:

  • What kind of packaging is needed? (i.e. bar wrapper, chip bag, stand up pouch, roll stock, etc..)
  • What kind of product being packaged?
  • What is the size of the packaging needed? (in inches)
  • Are you filling manually or through automation/co-packer?
  • How many do you need of each SKU/flavor?
  • Do you have art work or design comps?

What is your minimum order quantity?

Minimums are based on the size of the pouch or wrapper. (in inches) Normally, for a stand-up pouch, the minimum is 10,000 – 15,000 per SKU/flavor.

We can do bar wrappers for minimum of 10,000 (2,500 min 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)

How long do orders take to print?

Depends on your order quantity. Smaller orders take about 3 weeks* and larger orders take 4-6 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.
