Retail bags provide an easy and effective way to promote your company. Have your logo, company name and/or you website address printed on a shopping bag and wherever your bag goes it will be recognized and your company advertised for. You could choose from the following types of shopping bags:

Patch Handle Retail bags

Probably the most popular plastic carrier bag. These bags come with a reinforced punched-out patch handle gives the extra strength and support needed for carrying products. Ideal for carrying heavier weight items, a good choice for trade shows and conventions.

Varigauge Retail Bags

Varigauge carrier bags are produced from low density polythene which is blown in such a way that the polythene is double the thickness at the top of the carrier around the handle. This is a neater way of reinforcing the handle than using a patch.

Flexiloop Retail Bags

A flexiloop retail bag is similar to the varigauge and patch handled carrier bags, but with a welded polythene loop handle attached.

Twin Clip Retail Bags (or Clip Close Retail Bags)

Twin clip retail bags are generally used in cosmetics, jewellery and exhibitions. Clip close retail bags are manufactured from low density polythene and feature a rigid plastic clip close handle.

Vest-type Retail Bags

Vest-type carriers are the inexpensive shopping bags for food, soft goods and retail stores. Ideal for a more general use.

Duffle Presentation Bags

Duffle bags offer a more modern shape bag with a big capacity, popular for making a younger, more stylish impression

Food Bags

Food and produce bags, also know as Butcher Bags or Food Counter Bags are most commonly seen used at fish and meat counters in supermarkets or to package meat for customers in traditional butcher shops.
