TIPS

  • Small details do not always print well on polypropylene (non-woven) bags due to the texture of the material. For more detailed imprints, we recommend you choose a bag made of polyester material or eliminate the fine details.

PRINTING PROCESS

  • Bags are imprinted via screen printing or heat transfer decal, which is used for full-color images.
    • Screen printing burns the selected image into a screen that is then positioned on top of each bag as the ink is pushed through. The ink is then transferred onto the bags in the shape of the image.
    • The heat transfer decal process uses a heat press to apply a decal in full-color graphics onto each bag.
