Designing your own carrier bags is the perfect way to add a touch of personality and style to your products, and if you are doing it for the first time, you may be surprised to learn just how many different types there are.
Deciding between plastic carrier bags, paper carrier bags, and cotton carrier bags is just the start, one then has to decide whether to laminate or not, before choosing a matt or gloss finish, embossed or foil blocked, the shape and style, and finally –the handle type, so it is more than simply choosing a colour and adding a logo.
A well-designed carrier bag not only serves a purpose, but if it looks and feels great, the consumer is far more likely to use it again, so the two most important details to consider when designing your carrier bags for the first time, is the quality of material it is made of, and the type of handle.
