A simple search in the yellow pages under ‘Paper and plastic bag manufacturers’ - will turn up a surprising number in your local area. And sites on the internet have nationwide options too. Some sites allow you to email manufacturers for online quotes.
Although the types of bags and ranges of colours available will not vary greatly from one manufacturer to another, it is important to shop around for quotes. A sales representative should spend some time on the phone asking about your requirements - such as what will go in the bags, size and so on.
You may not have an absolutely clear idea of what you are looking for at that time but they should talk you through your best options. Make sure you know what the minimum order is and therefore how to choose a cost-effective option that will properly represent your business.
The manufacturer should then send you a sample of the bags you have talked about. This will give you an idea of the actual feel, quality, colours and sizes of the bags you could be buying. It will also allow you to compare different manufacturers’ products.
