There are many different elements to take into account when choosing retail bags for your business so we have created a quick guide to help you make the right decision.
The first element to consider when choosing your retail bags is your budget, if you are working to a tight budget you may be better suited to our plastic bags including, vest handle, patch handle, varigauge or flexiloop, these types of bags are very popular in supermarkets and for use at exhibitions. If you have a larger budget you may want to choose one of our rope handle, tape handle or twisted handle paper carrier bags which give a real high end feel to your products.
Next you will need to consider your usage, if you are going to be using a high volume of bags you will need to have enough storage on your premises as paper bags can take up to 3 times more storage space than plastic carrier bags.
Your customer expectations are also a consideration, will your customers expect to receive a high end paper carrier bag or would they be happy to receive their purchase in a plastic carrier bag. This leads onto the next element which is design. Plastic carrier bags are more suited to a simpler design but they can also have a more complex design if needed. If you want a truly premium design and finish including, lamination, embossed printing and rope handles.
A final consideration is the environmental impact of your bags, choosing paper carrier bags which are 100% recyclable can show your customers that you have the environment in mind and you are doing your bit to protect our environment.
