Plastic Bags and Mailing Bags
PP Laminated Bags
Plastic Bags & Mailing Bags
LDPE stands for Low Density Polyethylen. It has a soft feel and is a durable and flexible material. Besides those characteristics, it is also a quite cheap material.
The vast majority of plastic bags we produce is made of LDPE. However, in the future it is likely that more plastic bags will be produced in Recycled LDPE, RE-LDPE, since this is better for the environment and a bit cheaper.

RE-LDPE is the name of the material made from recycled plastic.
We produce the RE-LDPE bags with a mixture of new and old recycled plastic. In order to achieve the best mixture, we use between 40% and 80% recycled material. Bags with a higher concentration of recycled material are not well-suited for printing.
The bags look and feels just like regular plastic bags in LDPE. The quality is thus the same even though it is recycled material.
When using RE-LDPE bags, you cut down the environmental impact in the production and it is a clever way of sparing the environment and at the same time a price friendly alternative.
HDPE stands for High Density Polyethylen and is a stronger opaque material than LDPE and the foil is thin and crackling.
The material is durable and well-suited for food.
MDPE can be described as a cross between LDPE and HDPE since MDPE has characteristics from both materials.
While HDPE has a stiffer feel, MDPE is softer but still a durable plastic material.
Oxo-Biodegradable plastic is the term for our degradable plastic carrier bags.
This form of plastic is made with an additive which is mixed into the plastic during the extrusion stage. The effect of the additive is that the plastic decomposes when exposed to oxygen and sunlight, for instance if the plastic becomes waste.
The feel of the Oxo-Biodegradable Plastic bags is the same as regular LDPE Bags. You will not be able to feel any difference.
We offer to print the bags with the Oxo-Biodegradable Plastic logo, so your customers can see that you are using an environmentally friendly bag.
Bags made of Oxo-Biodegradable plastic are more expensive than our regular LDPE plastic bags without the additive.
Eco-Bags are compostable bags made of corn starch.
The bags are manufactured in compliance to the EN 13432 standard for compostability.
Since Eco-Bags are made of corn starch the bags feel significantly different than other traditional plastic bags made of LDPE.
The prices for Eco-Bags are slightly higher than traditional LDPE plastic bags.

The Co-Ex material is a robust foil that we primarily use for mailing bags. You can choose between foil that is black inside and white outside, or white inside and black outside.
The Co-Ex foil is great for customers who wants bags where you are not able to see through the foil and still have a decent quality logo print on the outside of the bag.

If you choose the classic tote bags for your next promotional shopping bags, we offer totes in cotton or canvas, which are the most popular materials for tote bags.
We produce totes in different qualities ranging from thin and soft cotton (approx. 150gsm) to thick and strong canvas (up to approx. 410gsm).
Totes in cotton has a soft feel and in 150gsm it is still a durable material and a good-quality product. If you are more interested in the thicker and stronger quality, the canvas bags are the natural choice. Typically, we make the canvas totes in 300gsm which is a good balance between a resilient material as well as a textile with a good feel.
