Use of budget plastic bags 

Plastic bags have been used for decades in supermarkets, clothing stores, trade shows, retail stores, fan shops, museums and in the tourist sector. Besides the fact that plastic bags are relatively cheap bags, the plastic material of these bags is very flexible and rain resistant. This makes the budget plastic bags ideal if you go shopping for a day. The budget plastic bags can take a beating. And even when it rains, plastic bags are good to use, because the plastic material stops rain and the plastic bags cannot tear. 


Delivery time 

With our own custom productions, we can deliver the plastic bags from 1,000 pieces within 3-12 weeks. The delivery time for these plastic bags is further dependent on the print run, type of material, material colour, printing and your budget. We also have a solution for small runs of budget plastic bags. We have a wide range of standard budget plastic bags in various colours, materials and sizes in stock, which we can deliver within 24 hours from 250 pieces. 


Handles of budget plastic bags 

Budget plastic bags have die-cut handles that make these plastic bags easy to carry by hand. The die-cut part can also be provided with an extra reinforcement on the inside of the bag (also called DKT or an adhesive sheet reinforcement), so that the plastic bag has more bearing capacity. 

Printing budget plastic bags

The budget plastic bags can be printed on the outside of the bag in both PANTONE® colours and in full colour. In general, two printing techniques are used for printing these plastic bags, namely flexo printing and gravure printing. Here is an explanation of both printing techniques: 

  • In flexographic printing, rubber printing stamps (flexo clichés) are used that are glued around a cylinder. Each printing colour needs its own printing stamp. Plastic film on a roll is machine pressed and then machine die-cut and sealed. Flexo printing is the cheapest way to print plastic bags. 
  • Gravure printing uses large copper cylinders to press the ink onto the plastic wrap. These copper cylinders are engraved with the printing (the artwork). You need a copper cylinder for each printing colour. After the budget plastic bags have been printed, they are machine-punched and sealed. This printing technique is a relatively expensive printing technique and gives the best printing result on the plastic bags. 

The budget plastic bags can also be printed with a matte varnish so that the plastic bags get a matte appearance. 


Material of budget plastic bags 

Budget plastic bags are made from plastic foil. The foil is in turn made of plastic granulate. This granulate looks like small grains and can be made in different types of plastic and in different colours. 

A commonly used plastic material for the budget plastic bags is LDPE. LDPE stands for Low-Density PolyEthylene, it feels soft, looks shiny and is a flexible type of plastic with a lot of stretch in the material. LDPE can be produced in transparent, white or in a PANTONE® colour. The thickness is usually indicated in microns. A standard thickness of the budget plastic bags generally varies between 50 mu and 100 mu. 

In addition, the materials MDPE (Medium-Density PolyEthylene) and HDPE (High-Density PolyEthylene) are also suitable for producing budget plastic bags. These materials look matt (not shiny), feel harder and stiffer and there is less stretch in these materials. Transparent MDPE or HDPE material is always semi-transparent (also called frosty transparent), so you cannot see through the material clearly. 

In addition to LDPE, MDPE and HDPE, the plastic material of the budget plastic bags can also be produced based on recycled material. For recycled material, a distinction can be made between Post-Consumer Waste recycled plastic material and Industrial Waste recycled plastic material. 
  • Post-Consumer Waste recycled plastic is made from collected plastic waste from households. As a result, this form of recycled plastic material often has a greyish look and you feel that the recycled plastic material has a coarse structure with seeds / pieces in the material. Recycled plastic bags made from Post-Consumer waste stand out well. 
  • Industrial Waste recycled plastic is made from plastic factory waste. This often concerns plastic waste during a plastic bag production process, so that the material has not ended up in the hands of the consumer. The plastic waste collected in the factory is immediately re melted into plastic granulate. As a result, this recycled plastic material looks whiter than Post-Consumer Waste recycled plastic and the plastic film feels smooth with no pits / pieces in the material. Recycled plastic bags made from Industrial Waste are almost indistinguishable from “new virgin” plastic bags. 

Ecological budget plastic bags

Budget plastic bags have a somewhat negative image due to the “plastic waste problem” in the world. Obviously, budget plastic bags should be reused as much as possible and properly disposed of with the residual waste at the end of their lifespan. With normal use of budget plastic bags, these bags can be just as durable as other bags. Plastic bags are generally strong, can take a beating and are water resistant. This prevents the material from tearing easily. In addition, budget plastic bags are 100% recyclable so that old plastic bags can be reused for other plastic products. We also produce budget plastic carrier bags based on ecological material such as recycled plastic.
