I think the 3 primary sources of bags are China, Taiwan and India. I have been quoted by domestic Canadian and US producers. Canadian prices are crazy. US prices are more competitive but don't touch the Asian prices. That may have changed due to shipping costs.
I recently received printed film from China....................only waited 6 months for delivery...then again, it didn't matter with all the covid lockdowns, but if I were in a hurry, it would have been an issue
the container shortage is real but the shipping time and shipping fee over-exaggerated I think.. unless you buy whole container bags， roll stock. The whole container 20# 40# is hard to order and extremely expensive. Yes， I admit it. but LCL （Less than Container Load） shipping 380$/cubic meter shanghai to NY port this year and shipping time is 35days. we shipped a lot of bags this year and our clients received them on time. Perhaps you should call me and buy from us and definitely ,I will show you the “magic”I understand normal shipping is 30 days or so, but these are not normal times.
I will tell you the story of a friend who needed his product shipped. He offered the shipping people a $8,000 "cash consideration" to make sure his container got on the boat. Some offered more so his container didn't get on the boat so he had to air freight his product and eat the cost.
I dunno if you are saying you can work magic and get orders here in 35 days but I would only believe it when I saw it

This is the most expensive type of all coffee bags so yes i pay more. But it’s top quality materials, valve, zip at the top, flat brick style bottom. I love them but for a 340g/12oz bag it’s about $0,27usd per bag printed. Plus shipping, bigger size are more expensive of course.
Yes- please shoot me info. I will reach out to you via pm.
I do not know how much you order, but $.21 for 8OZ flat pouch with valve is EXTREMELY expensive I think. $.099 seems like a trick same with you buying in a supermarket something marked $599， why not quote $ .1 directly.I found the same bag I am using for $.099 vs $.21 we currently pay. As for PBFY I used them before. She enticed me with a lower price on my initial order and when I re ordered the price matched my last company. I got no warning of an increase. I get it but don't like it...seemed shady. All good though...my samples come in 10 days.
That's a bit surprising... I can say I've had really good luck with them. In fact, in the last order, they missed 1 case of 5lb stock bags. No questions asked they overnighted me a new case. Had terrible luck with Sav OnI found the same bag I am using for $.099 vs $.21 we currently pay. As for PBFY I used them before.

Step for ordering custom bags：
Do not find suppliers from Alibaba，90% of sellers belong to the trading companies.
The trading company probably offers you an unstable quality bag at a cheap price. sometimes good， sometimes shitty.You never know. cause their supplier to keep changing（ the cheapest factory win the order）
We use Gravure printing for your bags， It is very cost-effective for large orders.
plate fee cost in colors， normally cost 70-80USD/ color，
plate fee prices will vary by bag type, size
How to confirm your bag price：
