Our Commitment to high quality bags and stand up pouches

Custom designed plastic bagsPackaging is a critical component of the overall shelf-appeal and life-cycle of products. It protects the product from damage and allows consumers to differentiate one brand from another. 

We offer a wide variety of polythene film types and our in-house extrusion, printing and conversion capabilities ensure the highest standards for quality are achieved.  

Our UK printing facilities offer edge-to-edge bleed printed bags as well as clear, tinted, opaque or a combination of clear and printed bags. Special features such as air relief holes, easy-open perforations and reclosable zippers are also available. .
