Paper Bags

In an evolving landscape of packaging needs, paper bags have emerged as a preferred choice for many, blending aesthetics with eco-friendliness. Signet offers a diverse range of shopping bags, tailored for every purpose — from a grocery store haul to gifting someone special. Our paper carry bags are the perfect alternative to traditional plastic retail bags. The bags are made with strong 80-120gsm paper that allows them hold between 10-13kg without breaking. Once they’ve served their primary purpose they can be reused, recycled, or composted. Our paper carry bags are plain and able to be self-customised with a logo stamp, with the option of a paper twist handle or flat fold handle. The bags come flat and can be stacked and stored easily. They open to an extra wide base so they can be easily packed without falling over.

Why do paper bags cost so much?

The pricing of paper bags is influenced by several factors:

  • Material: High-quality kraft paper or other recyclable materials are used to ensure the bag's strength and durability.
  • Eco-friendliness: Producing biodegradable and environmentally friendly bags can be more resource-intensive than traditional plastic bags.
  • Design & Finishes: Premium designs, such as gloss finishes, ribbons, or customized labels, can add to the cost.
  • Manufacturing Standards: Adherence to sustainable and responsible production practices may also affect the price point.

What is the best type of paper bag?

The "best" paper bag varies based on individual needs:

  • Shopping & Grocery: Brown kraft paper bags or grocery bags are sturdy and can handle heavier items.
  • Gifts: Glossy white paper bags or bags with ribbon handles offer a premium feel. For wine gifts, specific wine bags are available.
  • Food Packaging: Bags with a lining, like SOS bags or butchers' paper bags, are best for items that may be greasy or damp.

What are the cons of paper bags?

While paper bags are a popular choice, there are a few downsides:

  • Durability: When exposed to water or dampness, they might lose their structural integrity faster than plastic bags.
  • Cost: As mentioned, they can be more expensive than their plastic counterparts.
  • Storage: They might require more space for storage as compared to easily foldable plastic bags.

Are paper bags good for the environment?

Yes, paper bags generally have a positive impact on the environment:

  • Biodegradability: They decompose faster than plastic bags, reducing landfill waste.
  • Recyclable: Most paper bags, especially those made from kraft paper, are 100% recyclable.
  • Sustainability: Many paper bags are sourced from sustainably managed forests, ensuring minimal harm to our ecosystems.

How do I choose between brown kraft and white paper bags?

Your choice between brown kraft and white paper bags often depends on the aesthetic and purpose:

  • Natural & Rustic: Brown kraft bags offer a more earthy, natural vibe, ideal for organic stores or artisan products.
  • Clean & Premium: White paper bags are often perceived as more premium and are commonly used in fashion retail or for special events.
