All About Custom Printing


The printing of our bags can be achieved when you order as few as 1 case or as many as your imagination will allow. When you print or hot stamp short run, the process is a hand fed one at a time procedure that requires finesse and is done on bags that have been already converted.

Brown and white bags can either be printed or hot stamped while the matte colors or glossy shopping bags can only be hot stamped. Please provide us with black and white illustrator files as a PDF saved as a vector file and be sure to outline all the fonts.

Use the recommended sizing chart which follows to determine the appropriate printing areas available. Choose from the ink colors or hot stamping foil colors listed below. The delivery period is normally 2-3 weeks after art approval. Rush service is also available, please be sure to inquire. Remember, during the holiday season lead times may vary.

Refer to the style of bag and you will get a list of available sizes. Bags are sold per case, and while most cases of shopping bags contain 250 bags, some contain 200. Most merchandise bags come in cases of 1000 while the larger sizes are 500 bags per case. We also offer an innovative line of 100% recycled Kraft shopping bags.

Printing or Hot Stamping

As mentioned before, we offer two ways to customize your bags; printing with ink, or hot stamping with a foil. Ink looks great on most bags, however hot stamping offers a much crisper and cleaner look and adds a bit of texture similar to embossing. Always keep in mind that darker colored bags should only be hot stamped.

Printing and hot stamping fees are charged per thousand bags. The minimum we will print is just 1 case of bags (200 bags). So the printing or hot stamping fee for 200 bags will be the same as for 1000 bags.
