Printing anything from single colour up to 8 colours including 4 colour process and 100% coverage if required. The process used for flexible packaging if Flexogaphy. The film is printed as a flat sheet and both sides are printed simultaneously.
Once printed the film is converted where they are folded in half the gusset is added and the patch handle is stuck to the inside of the bag around the handle area, using a water based glue.
The handle is then punched out leaving a patch reinforcedment area around the handle.
Produced from a single gauge film they can be produced quicklye, offering a quality carrier bag at a competitive price.
Here are some fun bags printed to show whats possible .... and whats crazy.
Other styles of Polythene bags are available in LDPE, MDPE or HDPE and Degradable material, all of which can be printed up to 8 Colours 100% converage. They Include:
Varigauge. As the patch but without the reiforced patch area the matetrial is ticker at the handle aera and thinner at the bottom. Slightly more expensive than the patch but just as stong and a great if you dont like the apperance of the patch.
Duffle Bags. Strong bags with a knotted rope drawstring attached, ideal for sporst and urban outfitters.
Flexi-Loop. Offers extra carring capacity, and looks smart too. With is soft-flexible loop handles this is a higher quality bag to the Aperture handle carriers such as patch or Varigauge. Materials and printing capabilities as above.
Clip-Close. If the Flexi-loop still leaves too much open close the bag completely with the Clip Close Rgid handles, excpetional for thos high value items.
Vest Syle. Like the supermarket style bags Vest bags often made form a high density material meansd these can be very stong and still very thin. We also offer fully compostable as well as degradable Vest style carriers.
Sadly the fully compostable items do not yet have the tear strength or weight capacity on a degaradable material. Technolgy ios improving at it only a matter of time.
