Patch Handle Carrier Bag

Patch handle carrier bags are one of our most popular plastic carrier bags products. Both strong and reusable with additional strength in the handle, these plastic carrier bags are eco-friendly. If you order a patch handle carrier bag over 70 microns thick, it’s counted as bag-tax exempt!

Why choose a patch handle carrier bag?

  • Patch handle carrier bags are strong and durable because of their patch behind the handle area.
  • Patch handle carrier bags can be produced in almost any size.
  • With a large area to print on, patch handle carrier bags present very few restrictions when it comes to printing and branding your plastic carrier bags.

Patch Handle Carrier Bags are made from LDPE (low density polythene), but can also be manufactured from MDPR (medium density polythene) or HDPE (hide density polythene) materials.

All these plastic carrier bags products can also be created in a range of thickness’ ranging from 45 micron right up to 100 microns plus. If you order over any patch handle carrier bags over 70 microns, these will be counted as a bag-tax exempt plastic carrier bags.

Patch handle carrier bags can be printed up to 8 spot colours or 4 colour process print. We can print these bags 100% to achieve a coloured bag matched to a pantone reference. There are a few restrictions when it comes to printing on dark coloured film but we have options to get around this, get in touch for more details.

We can achieve matte bags by adding a lacquer. We can also print metallic and neon inks.

Patch handle carrier bag handles are created with an oval punch out with a re-enforced piece of film behind to add strength.
