Thinking of adding printing to your paper carrier bags order? Elliott Packaging use printing plates to print on your bags.

We outsource our printing plates from trusted printing plate makers. You will need to purchase your printing plates with your first order. If your artwork is the same on future orders, you will not need to purchase these again.

Unfortunately, not.

The manufacturing process of a printed bag does not allow us to set up the machines to print just one bag. We do have other options though for peace of mind. We can send samples of our recent work. We can offer visual mock ups online. As standard procedure, our plate makers send PDF printing proofs which show, colours sizes and positioning. These proofs need to be signed off before we proceed to make yours bags.

Elliott Packaging can also offer a ‘cromalin’ a cromalin is a print off of your PDF proof on film which will give you a very good vision of the finished product.

Thinking of changing your printing artwork? This is a common question when purchasing paper carrier bags because retailers and businesses will usually run a promotional offer or change branding.

If you want to change your artwork you will need new printing plates. If it’s a small change to the design such as an address, we may be able to change this using a ‘slug insert’.

A popular paper carrier bags faqs question! Pantone is a standardized colour matching system which uses a numbering system to identify colour shades. When you create your artwork, you will need to choose your pantone colours. Pantone colours can we found on the Pantone Website.
