Let's take a look at why custom paper bags can be beneficial for your business.

1.  They're a great way to promote your brand

When you design a paper bag with a provider like noissue, you can completely customize the design. You can include your brand colors, logo, and feature a message or tagline through the CMYK color one-sided design. This is an easy way to ensure that your brand is front and center and that potential customers will remember you. They'll even be a walking advertisement as they exit your store or stand carrying your paper bag!

2. They're affordable

Another great benefit of custom paper bags is that they're affordable. Unlike other packaging options, you don't have to order a huge minimum quantity when purchasing Custom Paper Bags. This is especially beneficial for small businesses or businesses that are just starting out. You can order a small quantity to start and increase your order as your business grows.

3. They're versatile

You can use Custom Paper Bags for multiple purposes, making them very versatile. They can be used as shopping bags, gift bags, or even a form of packaging for your products. You can place one or multiple items in a paper bag, which makes them perfect for businesses that sell a range of products.

4. They're sustainable

Paper bags are an eco-friendly alternative to plastic carry bags. noissue's Custom Paper Shopping Bags are made from pre-used recycled materials, and they're 100% recyclable after use. This is important for any business, as we should be making more environmentally responsible choices and not adding to excess waste in the world. It's also a great way to show your customers your brand values and show them that you care about the environment.

What factors should you consider when choosing a custom paper bag?

Now that we've looked at some of the reasons you should use custom paper bags, let's look at what factors you should consider when choosing a packaging supplier.

Some things you may want to keep in mind are:

  • The type of paper bag you need
  • The size of the paper bag
  • The thickness of the paper
  • The printing method
  • The turnaround time
  • The price.

These are all important factors that will vary depending on your brand's specific needs and what kind of products are being put in the bag.

noissue's Custom Paper Bags come in two sizes: One is better suited for smaller retail bags, and the other is larger in size for events and tradeshows.

What are the best sizes, shapes, and materials for Custom Paper Bags?

When it comes to shapes and sizes, that will entirely depend on the type of business you operate. For example, a gift shop selling larger items may want a long and thin paper bag, whereas a clothing store may want a square or rectangular paper bag.

As for materials, a popular option for paper bags is Recycled Kraft Paper. This durable bag is made from Forest Stewardship Council certified materials and can be recycled and reused. Even the ink that we use is eco-friendly and water-based, so you can be sure that your paper bag is sustainable from start to finish.
