Let's start with the individual cookie packaging bag,you can see the two sides are heat sealed,and the middle of back is also heat sealed,we call this kind of packaging bags are fin seal bags.Normally this kind of packaging bags are made by packing machine,the cookie brand owner,or cookie producer,they have a packing machine,what they need the packaging bags type is roll stock,the printed roll stock just like the left picture show.
