Bag Width: from right edge to left edge.

Height: from top edge to bottom

Bottom gusset: In the graphic, the bottom gusset part only show one side of the gusset, for exmple 30mm, however in actual order produce, the bototm gusset should mean the extended size of the gusset, that means 60mm.

Some options, like the Zipper, tear notch and euro hole, will not have enfluence on the sizes of pouch, however the postion of these options will have to be clearly stipulated in the layout of order before it moves into produce, as below.
