Tailor Made Bags - Our Process

1Choose Your Bag

Choose the bag style and size best for your business. Decide on the quantity you need. We will give a very clear quote and once you are happy with this, we will start your design.

We have a range of bags available, some of them have a wide range of options available such as size, paper weight, colour and handle options. Our experienced team can advise on which bag is best for your industry - we have bags to cater for everything from low value sales to boutique luxury items.

We also have bags for specific purposes such as potato bags which need specific nutritional information that we can take care of for you and fast food carriers that have particular requirements in order to withstand hot lights.

For more details on each of our bag types, and to see the range of options for each, please see our bag types page.


2Send Us Your Ideas

Send us your logo and any information you think might help us design the best bag for you.

Send us your logo and we’ll take it from there.

An Illustrator or Vector version scores top marks! But don’t worry if you only have a low resolution copy we’ll do our best to recreate it as closely as possible for you.

You have Brand Guidelines in place already.... excellent. Send us through your colour spec:

  • Uncoated Pantones for Kraft Paper
  • Coated Pantones for Artboard
  • CMYK for Full Colour Printing Using these will help keep the continuity of your brand through all your merchandising items.

No one knows your business like you. Any information you can give us about your target market, how you want to position your business and what you would like to communicate is invaluable. We will also take a peek at your website and social media outlets to get a feel for your business and translate that into a design you will love. Send us your location/contact details or tagline and we will incorporate them into the design.


3We Design your Bag

We design your bag and send you proofs until your design is perfect.

Design, Proofing and Amendments

This is where we unleash our 'bag' of tricks to come up with a design that says you! Carefully and creatively pieced together to give you the most eye catching design and get the most from your chosen print process.

We then create 3D mockups and flat proofs so you can review your design options from all angles. Check through all text and information carefully and let us know what you think of the designs. If you have any amendments send them through.

If we have nailed not pass Go, go straight to Approval


4Approve Your Design

Once you are happy with the design, we will finalise all the details and confirm all the costs.

Once any amendments have been made and you’re happy with your new design we will send you a Final Approval Sheet.

This outlines your Order Spec and has a final flat and 3D proof.

Check over all details carefully and once you’re happy let us know then it’s full steam ahead to production.


5We Make Your Bags

We go straight to print and make your bags exactly as specified.

Your newly designed artwork is sent straight to our printers once approved. We print these in both offset printing, where the quality of the print is paramount, and flexographic printing where cost is more important.

Our printers work hard to produce your bags exactly as specified. The production of your bags can take from just 4 weeks.


6We Deliver

When your bags are ready, we contact you to arrange delivery. Simple.

We provide free delivery on all printed bags.

Your bags are packaged safely and will arrive straight to your front door.

If you are not available on the day of delivery, our courier will make contact to reschedule your delivery on the next working day. If you would like your order to be dispatched on a certain day, you can contact us with your request.
