Offset Litho Printed Carrier bags

When you order this style we print the card, then laminate the card matt or gloss as requested. Only then do we make the bag up. Result: far more print options. From a deliberately sparse and striking single colour, through to...as far as your imagination takes you. For example a full colour photographic image, solid colours, printing on both sides and the base, even on the inside fold, and fitted with gorgeous ribbon handles.

To keep it simple, our all-inclusive price allows you to brand the front, back, base, sides and top fold for one price. There is no set-up or delivery charge.

The process is perfect for colourful, aspirational, high quality designs.
Design online using myDesigner, or ask our advice, or request a cutter guide and send your AI artwork to us.

Match your bags with our printed white tissue paper to upsell your products.

How strong are they?

  • The card is 185gsm American Bristol Board, meaning high strength and integrity, repeat use and advertising.
  • Every bag has a reinforced base carefully glued in.
  • The top is folded over a hidden card reinforcer, which is also glued in.

Your bags will be made with strong rope style handles in your choice of colour and length. Each bag is finished with neatly knotted handles, we don’t use clips which look cheap and catch on delicate items. You can upgrade to long handles and ribbon handles in myDesigner at minimal cost.

How are Custom Bags Printed?

Your design is offset lithographically printed onto FSC certified 185gsm American Bristol Board in our FSC certified print facility. We use water based inks. So you know you are buying from an ethical supply chain. Once your design is printed, the card is laminated matt or gloss. If you don't specify, matt lamination is standard. If you specify unlaminated, we print on to white kraft card. Then we crease, fold and glue your carrier bags. Your colour rope or ribbon is fitted, then they're packed up and despatched to you.

Matt or Gloss Finish

As standard each bag is matt laminated. You can specify gloss laminated or non laminated in myDesigner on the next page.
