When it comes to listing the advantages of paper carrier bags, the list is a long one. Practical, eco-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing are just a few words that come to mind, but it is the fact that they complement just about every type of business that makes them a winner in the packaging world.
Available in various sizes, with different side gussets, and numerous handle types (twisted, rope and ribbon to name a few); paper carrier bags are more than a tidy and economical packaging solution, they provide the perfect platform for advertising your brand.
Paper Carrier Bag Materials
One of the first stages in designing a range of carrier bags is choosing the material. With paper bags, you have Kraft paper, recycled paper or ribbed paper to choose from, each giving the bag a very different appearance.
Surface and Textures
Once you have decided which type of paper you would like to use for your carrier bags, the next stage is to get creative with surface options and textures. Lamination, embossing, debossing, spot UV printing and Hot Foil all work exceptionally well, and by taking advantage of these features, you can ensure your range of paper carrier bags stand out on the high street or at the exhibition.
As one would imagine, paper carrier bags print exceptionally well, so adding an artistic logo, company details, or information on your latest offers and promotions is simple. Depending on the type of paper carrier bags you choose, they will be litho printed, overprinted or machine printed with your choice of colours.
Paper carrier bags have the added advantage of being either biodegradable or recyclable, and are therefore considered more environmentally friendly than the plastic alternatives.
Paper Carrier Bag Storage
As with most packaging materials, the more paper carrier bags you order, the more cost-effective they become. Taking up very little space behind a counter or in the storeroom, paper carrier bags pack neatly together, and so you can buy in bulk and take advantage of the discounted prices.
