Paper bag manufacturing

Paper bags are generally used for packing purchases or gifts (shopping bags and gift bags) but they also can be used as promotional bags branded with a customer company’s logo for distribution of advertising and informational materials.

Paper bags are made from:

  • kraft paper;
  • bleached kraft paper;
  • coated paper;
  • heavy paper stock;
  • it is possible to attach paper handles or rope handles to the bags.


Kraft paper is packing paper with high tear resistance. It is usually brown or it can be bleached. Kraft paper is inexpensive yet very strong packing material thus production of kraft bags is more cost-effective than production of coated paper bags or paperboard bags. Now kraft packaging items are very popular as eco-friendly packaging for eco-products and organic foods.

In accordance with customers’ requirements the bags can be printed with single-color or full-color images with extra finishing options (glitter varnish, embossing/hot stamping, UV-varnish, lamination, insertion of metal eyelets).
