PRINTING ON PLASTIC BAGS

25 Jan 2010

Posted by

All Atlantic Poly plastic bags are printed using a method called Flexographic Printing. Flexographic printing uses flexible rubber printing plates which are adhered to a cylinder. The inked plates with a slightly raised image are rotated on the cylinder and the image is transferred to the plastic sheet or bag.  All of our inks are water based and are environmentally friendly. We can print up to 8 colors on 2 sides.

Printing on a poly bag obviously adds to the cost of the bag. We can imprint as few as 5000 bags but the cost is much higher because of the set-up. (We find that for cost optimization runs of 25,000 or more are more cost efficient)

There is an initial cost for plates but the customer maintains ownership of the plates. These plates are compatible with most printing presses.We also have several graphic designers available to help with the design of your bag.
