Ribbon Handle Paper Bags

Custom printed paper bags enhance your business.


Printed paper bags are all the rage amongst high-end stores, so what are the benefits for retailers, and is it worth making the change?

You’ll have noticed more and more people using paper bags to carry their goods on the high street. From high fashion brands to household names, everyone seems to be packaging their goods in custom printed paper bags.

There are many reasons why paper bags are a great choice for business – from low environmental impact and re-usability, to adding a luxurious brand identity.

So, let’s delve into the reasons why custom printed paper bags should top of your shopping list.

Paper bags are better for the environment

They’re biodegradable and aren’t manufactured using nasty chemicals like their plastic alternatives. So not only are paper bags great for reducing pollution from manufacturing processes, they also won’t end up cluttering a landfill site for decades to come.

You can recycle your paper bag, and they’re often made of recycled material!

The best way to help the environment is by recycling, and paper bags are strong and sturdy enough to be used over and over again. When they’re done, put them in with your paper recycling and they’ll be used to make something else. We think that’s awesome.

Custom printed bags are great for advertising

Not only can print your logo on a paper bag, but you can also choose any colour or design. Whatever your marketing message, you will broadcast it free to your target audience when your customers carry their purchase home.

What’s better for business than seeing a happy customer carrying your logo around on a paper bag?

Paper bags can be a luxurious addition to your brand

Branding is so important to any business, and custom paper bags come in a variety of types. We’re not just talking about a plain brown kraft paper bag. From laminated paper bags to ribbon or rope handled paper bags – choose from our whole range to match your brand identity.

Avoid the plastic carrier bag levy

If you don’t want to charge your customers every time they need a carrier bag, printed paper bags are the way to go. They’re not included in the government’s levy, and customers will be grateful when they’ve forgotten to bring their own ‘bag for life’.

Traditionally, a quality paper bag is a mark of exclusivity, and has been the reserve of superior brands. Custom printed paper bags are now available to any retailer and there’s no reason not to make the change from plastic bags. Your brand position will improve and your customers will benefit.
