Custom printed paper bags: marketing trend or smart business?

Printed paper bags have quickly become more popular as retailers look to offer a more cost-effective and trendy alternative to plastic bags. Whilst fabric bags, such as those made from cotton or jute, are fantastic as they have incredible durability and can be reused they can be more costly than paper bags, especially for smaller retailers with smaller budgets.

We’ve outlined some of the reasons why custom printed paper bags are worth investing in and aren’t just a marketing fad.


Environmentally friendly choice

Paper bags are a good option for businesses wanting to make better choices around the environment and they are having as a business. Many paper bags are fully biodegradable, and if they aren’t biodegradable then they can be recycled with most paper bags being made from recycled material in the first place!


Great for getting noticed

Not only can print your logo on a paper bag, but you can also add your chosen design and make the bag pop with any colours you wish. Whether you want to keep your bag more minimalistic, want to send a message to consumers, or want to create a bag that really pops, the possibilities really are endless!

Having promotional bags is also a great way to get your brand noticed and to be seen by many potential customers from the minute your bags leave the store.


A touch of luxury

Paper bags can come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be laminated or unlaminated, so you are spoilt for choice when choosing the right style for your business!

As well as offering custom paper bags in different shapes and sizes, at Paper Bag Co we also offer different handles for you to choose from meaning you can add a luxurious feel to your bags by opting for silk ribbon handles or opt for a stronger and more natural feel with rope handles.
