Types of Plastic Carrier Bags
Carrier bags come in various styles and sizes, for example:
Vest Style Carrier Bag
A low cost carrier bag with side gussets. This carrier looks just like a ‘vest’, these are mainly used for groceries.
Punched Handle Carrier Bag
These are made from single gauge film with a punched out handle and a Bottom gusset.
Patch Handle Carrier Bag
These are the same as the Punched Handle Carriers but with a reinforced handle. These are ideal for retail use.
Varigauge Carrier Bag
These are very similar to the patch handle carriers however these are made using various gauges of extruded film throughout the carrier bag, which allows it to be stronger around the handles where it’s needed most.
The Carrier Bags can can be custom printed.
