The kind of packaging bag you need will depend on what you’re using it for. There are a few things you should consider when choosing the bags you need:

  • Are your products lightweight or heavy?
  • What will you be using your bag for? E.g. retail, food, waste disposal or posting products?
  • If you’re using bags for posting products, do they need to meet Royal Mail parcel or envelope sizes?
