  • Lower minimum orders than many film producers. Order as little as 150 pounds of narrow tubing 4 inches to 14 inches or 500 pounds in the
    15 inch to 48 inch range. Larger sizes may require 1000 pounds minimum depending upon construction.
  • Film may be corona treated for printing or adhesive applications.
  • Film may be printed in-line and/or on our high speed stack and CI Flexo presses capable of printing 4 color line work or up to 6 color process designs.


quality polyethylene bags

We can make many bag constructions including wicketed side seal, standard bottom seal, draw tape, handle, zipper, duplex and special constructions. Vented or water-tight applications can be accommodated. Bags perforated on rolls (POR) and separated bags in-line may also be manufactured.

Quality Polyethylene Bags


Starting with quality blown film made with prime FDA resins, we custom manufacture a variety of bags to meet your specifications. all bags manufactured may be printed or unprinted. Types of bags include side seal and bottom seal bags, bags perforated on rolls and separated bags in line. We will make the size and construction to meet almost any package requirement for which monolayer and co-extruded polyethylene can be used, within the limits of our equipment. Clear, colored opaque, or color tints available.


Bags Perforated on Rolls


Many bag applications can be satisfied by using inexpensive bags perforated on rolls. These bags are made as the film is being extruded and are wound on cores. We can print one color in-line as well, though limitations apply. Sheets can also be made on a roll, both unprinted and printed (limitations apply). This approach is very economical for applications such as box liners, trash compactor bags, wood chips, mulch or any other material where a simple, low tech bag is adequate.

  • Broad range of sizes are available.
  • 3 inch and 1 inch cores available.
  • Rolls can be wrapped and plugged and/or boxed
  • Vents can be made into bags where needed (limitations apply). Reasonable minimums, from 150 pounds to 1,500 pounds depending on size and construction.


Separated Bags In-Line


Bags may also be made in an individually separated, case packed format. This approach is more expensive than bags on a roll, but still less expensive than bags produced out of line. Similar limitations apply for printing, size, and minimum quantity.



Specialty Products and Services

We offer a variety of film and bags for specialty applications including Eco-Friendly Biopolymer film and bags for sustainable packaging applications. US Postal Service approved mail overwrap and 3-layer co-extruded film that provides the opportunity to provide film structures with optical and physical properties that can typically not be achieved by mono-layer structures alone.

Please contact us to discuss your specialty product needs.


Manufacturers and mailers of flat-size mail must comply with USPS-T-3204, which went into effect February 4, 2007. In 2006, the USPS conducted a thorough study of automatable polywrap films to ensure compatibility of automation flats with flats sequencing systems (FSS) and stand alone mail prep (SAMP) according to standards AFSM 100 and UFSM 1000

Our USPS Poly Mailer Film was approved by the USPS meeting the T-3204 Standard in 2011.
