Measuring for Vacuum Seal Bags and Vacuum Pouches


We offer a wide array of vacuum sealer bag sizes. But how do you make sure you get the right size vacuum pouch for your product? The correct vacuum seal pouch size depends on the size and type of product you are sealing in your vacuum bag. We've detailed how you can measure your products to make sure you get the right size vacuum bags for your product.


For Rectangular Shaped Products

Vacuum Seal Bags - how to measure

Vacuum Pouch Width:
add the width of the products you are sealing to the height of the product you are sealing plus 1 inch.

Vacuum Pouch Length: add the length of the product you are sealing to the height of the product plus 2 inches.

Example: for a 6" wide, 7" long, and 0.75" high piece of meat, a vacuum pouch that is at least 8" wide and 10" long would be a good choice.
