NOTES TO CUSTOMIZING PAPER BAGS

Paper Bags have become the substitutes of plastic bags. The demand of paper bags have increased rapidly. However, many producers only offer paper bags which require levy or paper bags which have a fair quality. This may deeply affect your brand image. We, Artpack Paper Bags, mean the business and we suggest you to take notes to the below issue before you design your own paper bags.

Q: What are the purposes for you to order paper bags?

Advertisement? Put the products? Gift wrapping?

A: A good Paper Bag can bring positive effect to your company. If your paper bags are used for advertisement, we recommend you to use thicker paper or include extra converting on the bags. These can increase the quality of the bags and make the bags more durable. If your bags are used for wrapping and putting the products, normal printing can fulfilled your aim with a lower cost.

Q: Budget?

A: The price of the paper bag is determined by the number of your order and your special requests such as printing. Please do not underestimate the expenditure on storing the paper bags. In the first order, you should consider whether you are a long-term users. To avoid an excessive expenditure on storage, you are recommend to think twice on the quantity before you order

Q: What materials should I choose?

A: The paper used in paper bags are mostly NBKP white / brown kraft paper, matt art paper, and so on. These papers can adopt strong tension and have strong water resistance. The effect of color printing is also better. Other paper should be used with caution.

Q: How to ask for a quotation?

A: Please choose the types of paper bag you need and list out your special request. It is good to offer us 2-3 amounts of paper bag that you need (you are not recommend to offer the amount that exceed one year's usage due to the high storage cost). Also, please tell us the numbers of delivery, the type of delivery warehouse (as the fee of some warehouse may very high) or you can clearly tell the supply merchandise if you choose to have self-pick up.

Q: How to identify a GOOD paper bag?

A: The composition of a paper bag include paper, ink, glue, handles and workmanship. The identical bags could have prices which have double (or even more) differences. Some suppliers do shoddy work and use inferior material in the INVISIBLE parts of the paper bags to save cost. We may sometimes experience the embarrassing scene of losing the handles or the bottom break suddenly. The poor quality GLUE can account for this. As a poor paper bag will seriously affect the company’s brand image, the choice of suppliers is very important!
