Whether you’re an individual or a business owner, you need to think carefully about the packaging that you use. There are many different packaging styles that you can use, but custom printed bags are one of the best.
Many customers shop at their favorite brands partly because they enjoy the packaging. Using custom printed poly bags can provide an extra special experience for your customers by making your business, and its products look extra professional and well thought out. Customized packages can also make your products look more expensive and luxurious, adding to the customers unboxing experience.
The value of custom polybags varies depending on which industry your business is in. It also largely depends on the size and style of products that you sell. For example, if you work within the healthcare industry, you may be sending out heavy, fragile pieces of medical equipment. This would require sturdy and heavy-duty custom printed bags to ensure that the products do not get damaged in transit.
Failing to use the correct high-quality packaging for your products could lead to significant losses within your business and many customer complaints. This not only reduces your profits but can also lead to your company gaining a negative reputation within the industry.
Custom printed poly bags used to be bad for the environment due to taking years to decompose. However, with more and more people becoming eco-friendly, recyclable and decomposable polybags are now available for businesses to use as packaging.
Going Green With Polybags
Green packaging, also known as sustainable packaging, involves using materials that have already been manufactured and used in the past.
Recycling packaging materials can make your business more environmentally friendly and sustainable by reducing the impacts on the environment. Less energy and fewer products are used required when you use recyclable, ‘green’ custom poly bags.
The best materials to use for your packaging when trying to be more sustainable or plant-based plastics, biodegradable plastics, and recycled materials. Even better if you can obtain your materials using renewable energy sources.
It’s essential to do your own extensive research when buying biodegradable and ‘green’ packaging for your business. It’s all too easy for companies to make random claims about their products and eco-friendly packaging without evidence to back these claims.
Every product labeled as biodegradable must clearly state the composition of the packaging, indicating how much of the packaging is actually made out of biodegradable material.
Always check the labels to determine how eco-friendly the custom poly bags are before using any in your business.
