Polythene has long been seen as a material which could do untold damage to the environment, as plastic bags are always highly visible on landfill sites and throughout many different urban and rural environments due to their volume of use. Previous plastics used for printed poly bags could take 100’s of years to degrade, however the plastic used by The Printed Bag Shop for these bags is impregnated with an additive which speeds up the degrading process as soon as the plastic is exposed to UV light.


Printed poly bags are ideal for use at trade shows and exhibitions. They can be produced with any artwork from 1 colour all the way up to full colour print, to effectively advertise any business or special offer.


There are 5 different types of printed poly bags produced by The Printed bag shop:


Printed punched handle bags: A common bag used by retailers, generally made from vari-gauge material meaning it is thicker around the handle than at the base so it can handle a large weight without risk of the handle snapping.

Printed patch handle bags: A common bag used by retailers, and very much the same as punched handle bags only these are made from a straight gauge material meaning a patch is needed to reinforce the handle.
Printed Flexi Loop Handle Bags: The looped handle added to the top allows the bag to be used to its full capacity.
Printed Plastic Duffel Bags: The handles are made with polypropylene rope which allow this bag to be carried over the shoulder. Many schools and clubs use these printed poly bags as they are very popular with children for reuse.
Printed Vest Carrier Bags: These are the cheapest bags on the market and are perfect for high-volume retailers with lightweight products. These can be produced in large quantities from virgin/biodegradable or recycled polythene.
