With carrier bag taxes, levies and bans making daily headlines, many retailers are looking for an alternative packaging solution that is both practical and environmentally friendly, such as our custom printed counter bags.
Lightweight, convenient and ideal for smaller gift items, greetings cards, sandwiches, and snacks, paper counter bags are just as useful as the trusty carrier bag, and providing they are made with recyclable materials from sustainable sources, they are eco-friendly and kinder on the environment.
A traditional packaging solution that has never gone out of fashion, paper counter bags are just as popular now as there were some 50 years ago.
Anyone growing up in the 1960s and 1970s will be familiar with the plain white or brown paper counter bags handed out at the local sweet shop, pharmacy, market or grocery store, and while the general design may remain the same, today’s retailers are having their counter bags custom printed to advertise their products and services.
High Street bakeries rely on paper counter bags to hand out their delicious pastries and hot pies, and while these bags may not be suitable for reuse, they are recyclable, and in many instances, compostable, so they do not add to the world’s waste problem.
Advances in technology and material quality allow manufacturers to create counter bags that are stronger, thicker, and more colourful than ever before, and as such, modern retailers are replacing their plastic packaging with high quality printed counter bags as an alternative for their smaller goods.
Our counter bags are available in two thicknesses 36gsm or 39gms, and are printable with up to two spot colours (Pantones). Made from the finest quality paper, they look and feel impressive, and as one of the most economical bags available, they are ideal for those retailers looking for a cost effective packaging solution.
