How Bags Are Packed
Shopping Bags are sold per case and printed per case. Most cases of shopping bags contain 250 bags, some contain 200. Most merchandise bags come in cases of 1000 while the larger sizes are 500 bags per case.
Printing or Hot Stamping
Discount Shopping Bags offers two ways of customize your bags; printing with ink, or hot stamping with a foil. Ink printing creates a nice finished look. Hot Stamping offers a crisp and clean look which adds a bit of texture similar to embossing. Always keep in mind that darker colored bags should only be hot stamped.
Printing and hot stamping fees are charged per thousand bags. The minimum we will print is just 1 case of bags (200 bags). So the printing or hot stamping fee for 200 bags will be the same as for 1000 bags. Fees below apply to paper shopping bags only. For other options please call 866-296-7130.
$115 per color per side up to 1000 impressions
Hot Stamping Cost
$165 per color per side up to 1000 Impressions (images over 50sq” add 10%)
Printing bags requires "printing plates" to be made on the first order. You do have the option of using one plate on several sizes of bags however the printed image will be the same size on all sizes of bags. It is not uncommon for customers to make just one plate for several small sizes of bags and one plate for a couple of the larger sizes. The same applies for hot stamping; however the plates used in hot stamping are referred to as "dies".
When creating your logo, keep in mind that to make the printing plates we need the file to be in the following format:
A PDF vector file with all lines and texts completely outlined. We have the capability to enlarge or reduce logo sizes. We will provide you with a digital proof that will show you the positioning and size of your logo on the bags.
3 weeks. We can accommodate most rush orders for an additional fee. Just about anything is possible; please call us with your requirements. Please remember, depending on where your shipment is going, you will need to allow up to 6 days for shipping.
If you have an urgent delivery requirement, please call us and we will do what we can to meet your need for a rush order.
(We are unable to ship to PO Boxes.)
