What is the difference between side seal and bottom seal?

Side Seal Bags and Bottom Seal Bags are two types of plastic packs  that are sealed differently. Side Seal Bags are sealed on both sides, while Bottom Seal Bags are sealed at the bottom. Bottom Seal Bags are stronger than Side Seal Bags and are commonly used for packaging heavy items such as potting mix and pebbles. Side Seal Bags are more suitable for packaging light and small products and are cheaper to produce.
