  The Paper Shopping Bag 
Here is another tremendous workhorse of the bag industry. 


  Why would they choose this bag?  Well, I'm glad you ask.  First, it has good hand.  What do I mean?  Well, when you walk out of a store, it feels more substantial then a plastic bag.  Second, with a multiple of sizes to choose from and have on hand in your retail store, you'll be able to use a strong bag to put items of any size in for your clients to walk away with; while, of course, advertising your store.  These bags also have a funny way of having many lives; so don't be surprised if weeks or months after the purchase, your customer is not taking their lunch to work with one of these bags - Consider it your moving billboard!


  We make these for a wide range of users and some are, doctor's offices, shoe stores, clothing, tourism spots, and the list keeps going.  Check out The Paper Shopping Bag and let BagsOnTheNet help you find the right solution for your store.

When To Buy Bags In Bulk?

Posted August 30, 2012

Simple question, really, but it all depends on what you consider bulk.  If you use 40,000 industrial poly bags a month in your operation, then buying 2 pallets at a time with free shipping is not unrealistic.  If you buy 300,000 poly bags, and you only use 10,000 a year, you’re out of your mind with money to burn. 

We work with the largest of companies down to a mom and pop, and they all get the same attention and service - they just have different needs.  Working with the large operations; when they buy in bulk, they are doing a few things: 1. Locking in the price of that commodity at that particular time.  2.  Guaranteeing they do not have a slowdown in assembly due to missing components (BAGS).  And 3. they take advantage of high volume discounts and, many times, free shipping on those orders.  When you are working on a grand scale, those pennies add up to large dollars at the end of a year.

BagsOnTheNet has been providing large clients and small with solutions online since 1996 and we have the Capabilities to help handle your needs starting today!

Be Careful What You Wish For:

Posted August 9, 2012

         Folk’s, here’s a great article that helps put a different perspective on the latest rage within the retail bag industry.  The author sites some pretty compelling science to back up his ideas why banning bags might not be the wisest thing to do.   
You want to feel good and think plastic bags are bad, so you say, “Hey, I’m going to buy those reusable bags”, only to realize that those, too, are plastic.  Want to buy paper bags as a substitute, great, we sell those too; but as we’ve been saying for years now, it’s not what bag  people use, it’s a question of how do people dispose of that bag AFTER they use it. 
Again, why do we have to turn to outright bans that punish everyone?  You may ask, “How may that be?”  Well, store owners that sell low cost goods are the folks who buy the lower cost bags; and if they have to upgrade a bag because of bans, then ultimately those stores are going to raise their prices to comply with new laws. Hence, we, the paying public, pay more for the things we need in the long run.
 As a store or business owner, you need knowledge and information to help you make the right choices. Informed decisions help business owners keep up with the demands and wishes of their clientele!  The following article has some very interesting facts regarding the pro's and con's of the uses of plastics!

Our Quality and Quantity vs. just a Nameā€¦

Posted July 27, 2012

Our Quality and Quantity vs. just a Name…

We often discuss here at BagsOnTheNet why consumers of zipper bags choose to run to the big box stores and plunk down their money for the name brand zipper bags.  Some are Glad Bags or ZIPLOC Bags.  For example, ZIPLOC makes a great product and we all know them.  They sell a sandwich size bag which is approx. 6.5” wide x 6” high plus the zipper ( a zipper bag is measured to the zipper, the plastic above the zipper is not included). 


After looking around for a GREAT deal on ZIPLOC Brand Zipper Sandwich Bags the best price we could find was $2.75 for a box of 66 bags.  Compare that to our Discount Brand Zipper Bags 6x6 size 2 MIL and ours are $20.18 for a case of 1,000 Bags!  So, let’s do the math together.  You would have to buy just a hair more than 15 boxes to get to 1,000 bags with the ZIPLOC.  15 boxes would cost $41.25.  WOW, almost an exact doubling in price.  There are a few reasons for that; 1) We aren’t moving our bags all around and then onto store shelves, so we have less handling costs. 2) With our order systems we keep very tight controls on inventories and 3) We don’t have National televisions commercials, and large advertising budgets.  We do advertise, but on a much different level. 

We’re not saying the competitions bags are bad in any way…  Both our bags and “the competitions” are pretty much identical, ours both serve the same purpose and perform as they should although you may notice ours our a little thicker so another added bonus.  We just don’t spend millions of dollars trying to convince you otherwise.  We, through our long standing website, reputation and existing customer base are growing our sales.  We invite you to check out our zipper bags and would like to extend to you a coupon discount code to check out any of our other bags that you may use as well.  You won’t be disappointed and you’ll even have money left over for more groceries in your cart!
