Here are a few things you need to think about when buying your custom mailing bags:

Will my products fit in my parcel bags?

We make bags to any size and offer a hand made sample before you order to check sizing. Always allow extra room on each side of the parcel bag to allow the product to be put in and taken out of the bag easily.

What do i need to print on my postage bags?

We recommend the following: Logo, return address, contact details and your PPI (if applicable)

How many mailing bags do i need?

The more bags you order the better the cost per unit will be. Please check that you have enough storage space for your postal packaging and that you have enough bags to cover yourself for at least three months.

Which material is best for my mailing bag?

Mailing bags need to be polythene, this makes them durable and waterproof. There are a few options within this though, check out of material section for more information. Our sales team can advise which will be best for your product.

“From initial contact to delivery of our bags, I could not have wished for a better service. My initial call was taken by Samantha , who is a credit to her company and nothing was too much trouble. I know I asked a lot of questions but she always had time to answer them, and never at any time did I feel that I was being rushed or talked into anything. What I got was the truth, definite costs and at the end of it, bags that we are delighted with. Thank you.”
