Custom Bags are Great for Promoting Your Company

Choosing the right custom bags for your business or organization takes time. There are many customizable options, so you should explore what is available and ensure you are choosing the product that is going to best suit your patrons. A few things to consider when choosing your custom plastic bags include:


Custom printed bags are created using an advanced color matching system and a printing plate designed just for your company. Most custom orders have an initial one-time cost for creating the plate, so future bag orders can be as efficient as possible.

Custom printed plastic bags are made with water-based flexographic inks. The adhesion of the ink is durable enough to withstand the wear-and-tear of a mailing bag, retail bag, or any other bag faces. We are able to customize the overall color of your bag, as well as the ink color. We use the Pantone Matching System (PMS) to ensure the color match is accurate on every bag we print.

Bag Thickness

Custom bags are available in a variety of thicknesses, but most range from .0005 mil up to approximately .008 mil. The thickness of your bag should be based on the weight of the items being contained, as well as how puncture resistant you want the bag to be.

  • Use the following as a general guideline for bag thickness
  • Economical packaging and lightweight products: 1 to 1.25 mil bags
  • Storing, shipping, or displaying everyday items: 1.5 to 2 mil bags
  • Protecting and supporting heavy or abrasive items: 3 to 4 mil bags
  • Total protection for heavy items: 6 mil bags

Buying in Bulk

Buying custom bags in bulk often reduces the cost a great deal. Companies that require ongoing bulk orders of bags can receive custom designs at a significant discount because they are committing to a long-term relationship with the custom bag manufacturer.

Bag Styles

Customized bags are available in a variety of different sizes and styles. Possible bag styles include:

  • Lay-Flat
  • Gusseted
  • Single Thickness Die Cut
  • Fold-Over, Die-Cut
  • Patch-Handle
  • Snap Handle
  • Draw String
  • T-Shirt
  • Mailer
  • Non-woven Polypropylene/Reusable

Custom Manufacturing

Custom manufacturing allows you to choose a unique shape, handle, and size. Anything can be custom manufactured with your specific need in mind! To select the bag most appropriate for your application, it is important to consider the question, ‘What am I going to be placing in this bag?’ Your answer will help us guide you toward selecting the correct thickness, bag size, handle style, and film type.

In addition to the standard polypropylene and polyethylene films, we offer the increasingly popular biodegradable option for our custom produced poly bags as well as reusable options such as non-woven polypropylene bags for the eco-friendly.
