Gift, Gourmet & Retail Packaging



Paper shopping bags are the most versatile retail packaging staple, no matter what the season or current fashion trend. Recycled brown kraft and colored shopping bags are often the perfect solution because they allow you to dress them up with decorative gift bag tissue paper, raffia ribbon, and even your personalized logo. There is also a larger selection available as far as sizing options when compared to many paper shopping bag designs.


The following are some of the characteristics that typically differentiate between paper shopping bags and laminated gift bags.

  • Paper shopping bags have rigid twist handles that are colored to match or compliment the bag. The top opening of the bag typically has a subtle serrated edge, and many of them are made from recycled materials. Sizes offered within this line are more extensive than most. You will find that brown and white Kraft bags have the largest size selections. They range from a small rose size for little gifts to extra-large durable take out bags for restaurants and cafes. These bags are sturdy enough to with stand a bit of wear and tear, and are offered in large and small bulk quantities. There are also some assortment options. With the wide variety of colors and designs, you will find shopping bags to be great for everyday use in your home, grocery store, restaurant, or retail business. Recycled shopping bags are also very popular because they meet the requirements for areas experiencing plastic bag bans.
  • Paper Gift Bags have rope handles that compliment or match each bag. The rope handles can be pulled inside the gift bag when on display and then pulled out when you are ready to pick it up and go. The tops of the bags have a smooth upscale opening with options in heavy weight matte colors, gloss colors, kraft, prints and hot stamp designs. Bulk packs of 100 or smaller packs of 10 provide you with the advantage to choose the exact amount you need for your boutique or an upcoming event. Sizes in this line range from an extra small petite bag that is perfect for jewelry to a large vogue tote bag that is perfect for sweaters or dresses. No matter the occasion, these luxury paper bags will be sure to make a statement!
