Impression DP as part of our work with Women’s designer boutique, Rocca, has designed and printed their luxury printed bags! The results are stunning (we think so!) so we suggest you get down to Rocca’s flagship store which is based in Harrogate and have a look…
If you require any packaging here are some tips when planning having them produced…
1) What quantity of bags to do require?
We often have customer shocked at the printing/production costs of fairly elaborate bags designs but at low quantities this is always going to be the case. Obviously the more printed bags customers order the better the unit price becomes. We usually recommend clients to order enough printed bags so that it’ll last them the whole year and it also helps to keep the bags unit costs down. We all know how important margins in retail are!
2) We need to know the size of the printed bags?
We can produce printed bags of any size required. So send us examples of provide measurements for us to prie your requirments up accurately.
3) What is to be printed on the bags?
Our key recommendation is to keep it simple. Bag design is something of a skill and our graphic design studio now has done to a tee. Let us know if you require use of our graphic design studio.
4) How strong should your printed carrier bags be?
The industry standard for handmade carrier bags is 190gsm. Our standard is 220gsm and if requested we can increase to 300gsm for a really strong and rigid carrier bag.
5) What material do you want your printed bags to be?
Textured bags are the most luxurious but as with most things, also the most expensive. We can provide samples of different bag textures for you to consider or call into our studio to discuss with a member of our production team.
- Gloss lamination give off a shiny appearence.
- Matt lamination gives the bag a matt finish – this is by far the most common finish used on printed bags.
6) What handles will you choose?
We can make handles from the following materials:
7) Delivery times
One of the most important points and a point that is always overlooked!! Most pritned bags come from our factory in China and we’d allow 8 to 2 weeks for delivery. We can produce bags in the UK factory but they are more expensive to produce but we can truen around in a much quicker time!
