“You can make that?”
Over the years, we’ve been asked to make some really interesting custom printed plastic bags, so we thought we’d share a few of these unusual stories to highlight the remarkable diversity and flexibility available in designing and manufacturing plastic bags.
Here are a few examples of some unusual plastic bags we’ve been asked to make:
Roasted chili pepper bag
We designed and manufactured a customized plastic bag for roasted chili peppers that enabled the roasting company to process and load the roasted peppers directly into a plastic bag that used FDA-approved resin and could withstand the still-warm peppers. We designed a special mouth opening for loading the peppers into the bag, and a thickness to handle the volume and weight of the peppers. We even came up with a special dispenser box for ease-of-use.
Lobster and crab bags
Seafood is a particularly challenging item for plastic shopping bags – they need to withstand claws, sharp shells, moisture and freezing conditions while holding up under often-significant weight and still meet FDA regulations.
One company selling lobsters needed an attractive bag that could handle several lobsters with style. We came up with an attractive, custom-printed plastic bag in lobster red that could easily take two Maine lobsters and be carried comfortably with a sturdy, die-cut handle.
Another customer needed a crab bag with specific storage and transportation needs. We designed a custom printed plastic bag that could withstand the freezing temperatures of its storage conditions, was long enough to accommodate entire crab legs, and tough enough to not puncture or tear. We even added a handy zipper to close off the section of the bag where the crab is located and a sturdy, die-cut handle for easy transportation.
Luxury cookie bag
This attractive 5” x 5” high-end promotional custom plastic bag for a single large cookie was made with polypropylene resin, attention-getting 5-color printing, and an adhesive closure.
Store-to-oven food bag
Developed for a retail food chain where the primary product is wings, this custom pouch bag features custom printing with 100 percent ink coverage for maximum promotional benefit, a reliable zipper closure, and die-cut handle for easy transport. Once home, the bag could go right in the microwave to heat up wings or other reheatable foods.
These are just some of the interesting and unusual custom plastic bags we design and manufacture for standard or specialty products.
