In this post we will talk about the process of customizing bulk bags and some tips on how to get started.

What is a Bulk Bag

A bulk bag is a bag that can be sealed off and filled with any type of material to create a handle. Bulk bags are typically made from plastic, polypropylene, or nylon which makes them reusable and durable. They’re usually sealed along the sides with heater seals that make it easy to open and close the bag.

Bulk bags come in various sizes depending on what they’ll be used for but the most common size for these types of bags is between 1 – 7 cubic feet.

Why Customize Bulk Bags

Customizing bulk bags provides businesses with a custom-branded product. Businesses are able to add their company logo, striking graphic patterns, and unique promotional messages to make the item uniquely theirs. Customization also adds value for the bag’s eventual purchaser in that they can use it just as much for personal use as they can use it professionally.

It is recommended that graphics be made in CMYK colors so that they will look great on any colored paper or plastic bag – an asset not found on traditional preprinted items!

How to Make Your Own

Making your own custom bulk bags isn’t too hard to do, but there are some things you should know before you start. First of all, a bag requires the following materials in order to make it:

  • Outer fabric for the bag.
  • Inner fabric for lining and closing the top opening. This can be done with same or a different material than outer fabric.
  • Closure such as twist tie or a small seam at top of pocket with velcro hook or loop closure between strap and hanging hardware on back of bag if needed.

Things to Consider When Designing the Print for Your Bulk Bag

You need to take into consideration the type of printing that you want to use. If the textile is cotton, silkscreen products will be good as they hold up well in water. With polyester textiles, however, flexography would be a better option as it can transfer from wet surfaces such as concrete stakes – and since it doesn’t rely on water – dry time won’t be an issue.

An important factor that needs to be determined is how large you want your print design to be. So before laying out any money on listing plans or purchasing equipment, get some basic proofs made and examine them closely for accuracy both at portrait and landscape sizes.

Tips and Tricks for Printing on Vinyl Material

Printing on vinyl material is a bit of an art unto itself. For the best results, we recommend printing a white template onto black stock then transfer to your vinyl using an overhead projector. Zero (100%) opacity layer should be placed on the overspray layer and set backwards towards the print bed for improved adhesion during final cutout of your shape or design from adhesive backing.

Using Customized Bulk Bags in Your Business or Home Life

Customized bulk bags make it possible to store, sell, and consume an assortment of different products that are all the same size. This makes your life easier in many ways. It cuts down on time spent trying to find one specific product among a disorganized pile or shelf of variously sized packages, which saves you time and energy that can be better applied elsewhere. Bulk bags also save space by packing together smaller items into one bag instead of having them laid out individually on a surface, so it’s more environmentally friendly as well as economical for you or your business’ bottom line

There are countless uses for customized bulk bags in your personal life and professional career.
