We can supply printed polythene carrier bags within 7 working days, sometimes less depending on factory capacity. These can be printed onto white or standard coloured polythenes (LDPE - low density). Fast track orders are only available on the Vari-gauge style of carrier bags. The most common size for this carrier bag is 15"x18"+3" (Width x Height + base gusset). Other common sizes include 12"x16"+3", 22"x18"+3", 30"x24"+4" (White only). Printing can be done up to 6 colours in total (so 3 one side, 3 another, or 4 and 2) but becomes more expensive the more colours you have. Each colour still requires its own plate and ink tray on the machine. We deliver anywhere in the UK within the specified time (remote regions subject to services available). The specification for the above bag would be as follows:

1 Colour Fast Track Vari Gauge
(Vari gauge Carrier Bags Fast-Track P)
An ideal short run, promo or exhibition carrier bag

Variguage carrier bags are manufactured using a polythene of varying thickness, hence the name. The standard material is usually 45mu (microns) at the base and around the gusset, which increases with the height of the bag so that the material thickness is 90mu (microns) around the handle area. The bag strength therefore comes from a single sheet of polythene and results in a strong handle. The bags are ideal for short runs and can be produced from quantities of 1,000 upwards in a variety of standard colours. Due to the varying gauge however, it is not possible to print these bags with a process print as the varying gauge would cause problems with the process.

These bags can be produced in 7 working days on a fastrack service

The specification of the above bag is as follows:

Varigauge on coloured polythene bag
(Vari gauge Carrier Bags Variable Gau)
The sample shown here is of a varigauge bag printed onto an Ivory LDPE. The print is a two colour black and red print. Note, when printing onto coloured LDPE, the base colour can affect the finished ink colour. This is particularly noticeable for white inks and lighter colour inks. For metallics, black and dark inks, the base material colour affects the printing much less if at all.

The specification of a bag like this is as follows:
Varigauge carrier bag
Quantity: 1,000+
Size: 15"x18"+3"
45/90mu Ivory LDPE
Punched hole handle
Printed 2 colours, both sides.

These bags are ideal for exhibitions, promotions, small stores and one off low run prints. They can also be supplied with short lead times, sometimes within 7 working days.

Red Varigauge Carrier Bag
(Vari gauge Carrier Bags Varigauge Ca)
Varigauge carrier bags are produced in quantities of 1,000 plus. They can be produced from a variety of base material colours and printed up to 6 colours in total (that's for both sides, so could be all 6 colours on one side, or 5 on the front and one colour on the back). Plates are usually prices per colour. The average printing area for these bagsallows for a few inches gap around between the edge of the print and the edge of the bag or handle. Due to the printing method, the material does move around on the press a little and as such a small tolerance for printing position should be allowed. For a standard size 15"x18"+3" varigauge carrier bag, the maximum printing area is 12"x12" in the centre of the bag area below the handle. It is not possible to print inside the base gusset on this style of carrier bag.

Varigauge Polythene Carrier Bags
(Vari gauge Carrier Bags VG Poly 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.
