Flexi-loop polythene carrier bags are ideal when you have just that little bit more shopping as the handles allow extra carrying capacity. Easier on the hands as well due to the quality/thickness of the handles. The same prinicple applies as varigauge polythene bags or patch handle bags for guage of polythene. Variloop carriers have double the thickness at the top of the bag to give strength around the handle area, and can be printed with spot colours. Flexi-loop TOT carriers are of a standard gauge of polythene throughout and can be printed with single or in CMYK process prints. Both types of carrier are available in a variety of colours with matching or contrasting handles also available.

Patch handle polythene bags are one of the most widely used carrier bags. They are commonly used on the high street for fashion outlets and sports outlets and also used in many exhibition or promotional situations.
The bags have reinforced handles. A small patch of polythene is placed behind the handle location during manufacture so that when the handle hole is punched out, the surrounding LDPE or HDPE is supported by an extra layer of usually clear polythene. This adds far great strength around this area and allows the carrier bag to be used for longer periods and carry more weight. Without the patch insert, the handle area tends to be one of the weaker spots on a carrier bag as when in use correctly, the handle will have to support all of the contents of the carrier bag. The bags are commonly side welded and produced with a base gusset to allow greater capacity within the bag.

Varigauge polythene carrier bags are printed up to 6 colours in total. That can be all 6 on one side, or 3 on each side. Or some other combination, but totalling 6 colours. It may be better to think of it as 6 plates or designs which can be on either side. The material doubles in thickness from the base to give extra support around the handle area. The bags can be produced in quantities as little as 1,000 and also on a fast track service which allows us to despatch the bags within 7 working days, sometimes sooner.
