Vest Carrier Bags

Vest carrier bags are the sort of carrier you’ll find in supermarkets and butchers. Strong and lightweight, we all use these to carry our shopping.

Simple, bold designs look best on these bags, so we personalise them with flexographic printing. You can get up to 2 colours printed on vest carrier bags, so make sure your logo is appropriate.

Rope Handle Bags
These are the go-to bags for take-away food retailers. Secure return customers by showing off your company’s name.

Print 1 or 2 colour logos on tape handle bags with flexographic printing. This type of printing can really make images and contact details stand out.

Twist Handle Bags
Cotton bags are another ideal choice for green companies. We supply plain and coloured natural cotton bags, perfect for bold brands.

Just like jute bags you can get cotton carriers screen printed. If you have a logo with up to 4 colours this is the best printing method to go for.

If you have a more intricate logo we can print them on plain natural cotton bags. We do this with digital printing, which creates photographic images of 4 or more colours.

Tape Handle Bags

To produce images on a jute carrier bag we get them screen printed. Seeing as jute bags have a slightly uneven surface compared to other carrier bags, you can only print big and bold images on them.

We can print up to 4 colours on our jute bags and you can purchase from as few as 100 at a time.

Cotton Bags
Plastic carrier bags are popular with high street retailers and are suitable for all sorts of businesses.

We use a flexographic printer to produce images on our plastic carrier bags. This is a quick type of printing which produces crisp blocks of colour.
