We offer solutions for your customers' needs
At Plastic Bag Printing we say “You Provide the Challenge, We’ll Provide the Solution” – and we mean it. If your customer doesn’t see a size or color that meets their needs, we’ll be happy to work with you to find a packaging solution for them. We offer a variety of customization options that may be helpful for your specialty customers:
Because we manufacture nearly all of the products we sell in our facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin, we have the ability to create custom sizes for most bag types. While most retail, food service, and eCommerce customers use our standard sizes, we never shy away from creating a custom solution specific to your customer’s individual business need. Call our award-winning customer service team today to discuss creating a custom solution that will fit your customer’s needs. Interested in some examples of what custom size bags are used for?

Color can be iconic. Many retail brands can be identified simply by the color of the bag that contains their treasures. Think of Tiffany blue, Target red, or Apple white. When a color is the key to your client’s identity, we can make that color happen in their packaging. Our flexographic printing capabilities mean we can create a custom bag color by tinting our standard paper to a color of your choosing. So if our array of stock color doesn’t give your customer the specialized look they desire, please call our customer service team to find out more about custom tinting, or ask about providing your own custom tinted paper and having Plastic Bag Printing convert it into the perfect retail bags.

Our machines have the capability to convert many weights and grades of paper into bags. We have manufactured bags using glassine, grease-resistant paper, laminated papers, clay-coated paper, heavy-weight paper, linerboard, and more. Call today to find out more about our ability to convert specialty papers and how they can help your customer. How one customer sent us specialty paper that we converted into cookie bags.

Plastic Bag Printing takes very seriously our commitment to being good stewards of the environment. In fact, the highest environmental award bestowed by the City of Johannesburg upon outstanding organizations, companies or municipalities. So needless to say, we make every effort to use high recycled-content paper to produce the wide variety of products for those customers who share our commitment to sound environmental practices.
We have sought out and aligned ourselves with some of the most respected and conservation-minded paper companies in Africa. Most of the mills we purchase from subscribe to third-party certification from Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) or the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for chain-of-custody and sales tracking systems relative to the origin of both recycled and virgin fiber.
Given the wide variety of products we manufacture, every product has a purpose and every purpose has a special need. Therefore, we match the end-use of the product with the appropriate paper to make it. Many of our products are made with 100% recycled fiber content. Some products, like our shipping bags, require extra strength and are a blend of recycled and virgin fiber.
Responsible purchasing practices for raw materials and cartons are only part of our commitment to the environment. Our production team has implemented LEAN manufacturing procedures and utilizes a SPEC ink mixing, dispensing, and storage system to more accurately calculate required ink and to reformulate work-off ink. Any ink not reformulated is mixed to black, entirely eliminating waste.
In addition, our facility uses ORION energy-efficient lighting – reducing energy and maintenance. Our team is also dedicated to recycling. We work with local recycling companies to recycle light bulbs, aluminum, office and manufacturing waste paper and waste oil. Paper-reducing strategies have been implemented for intra-office communications as well as marketing efforts, invoices and quotes.
