    Cheap Packaging

    Looking for ideas for inexpensive paper bags for packaging. Need 1 and 5 pound bags. I've looked at a few options online like uline, webstaurant, papermart, etc. Papermart seems to have the best price but doesn't offer a 5 pound bag. Webstaurant has the best price point but then blows it with outrageous shipping costs and has a ton of negative reviews so I am shying away from them. Any other ideas to get some basic unprinted packaging?

    Very few people will use paper bags... most people use gusseted bags w/ valves. The big three that sell them are: Pack Plus / PBFY & Pacific Bag

    Thank you for the response. I will check out those options. When I said paper bags, i guess what i meant was the gusseted bags that have a paper exterior and an inner liner and most i have looked at do have the valve. Thanks again!

    If I go with the tin tie paper bag type, do I need a way to seal the bags or are the tin ties enough? These would be for local sales so they would not be shipped anywhere.

    You will need/want a sealer... the ties will close the bag but not keep them air tight.

    Or are there better alternatives?

    hmm, just found this as well. Maybe a crimper rather than a sealer?

    You will want a impulse sealer... and depending on the thickness of the bag you might have to hit it twice.

    Great! Much cheaper than the crimper. Thanks for all the helpful responses Musicphan!
