Custom Plastic Bags

We’ve been in business for more than 140 years. How? Very simple. We expect to exceed your expectations. We understand your packaging is a powerful marketing tool that brands your business and expertly showcases the product to attract prospective buyers, so we’re dedicated to each bag we produce. We want your product to look great! This is why we intend to be your lifetime vendor.

A Bag that Fits all Your Criteria

Our business is printing and manufacturing custom made bags from polyethylene, cellophane, and polypropylene. Each of these materials is printable and heat sealable. Our polypropylene bags and cellophane bags have moisture barriers, long shelf life and superior clarity. They’re great for potpourri, incense, nuts, candies, popcorn and many other products. Additionally, Checker Bag has a special certification for Good Manufacturing Practices from SAI Global for our line of polypropylene bags.

Our crystal clear and durable custom polyethylene bags look great on the retail shelves. They are our most popular manufactured material. We also carry industrial-strength trash liners in stock from 10 gallon to 55 gallon. Our trash liners are very popular with city parks, zoo’s, industrial plants and other facilities that require a superior strength liner.

Here are just a few features we can add to your custom bags:

  • Ziplock
  • Adhesive Strip
  • Metal Grommet
  • Micro-Perforation
  • Wickets
  • Header, Reinforced Header
  • Die-cut handle, Patch handle, Reinforced handle,
  • Vent holes & OSHA holes

Custom Printed Plastic Bags

We take great pride in our printing – from conception to the final press run. If you have a specific design you want, we will bring it to life. Our state-of-the-art printing presses provide quality spot color or process print work.

Checker Bag handles a variety of complex jobs. For example, many of our clients come from the food industry and request high-resolution photos to entice hungry eyes. We would recommend process printing for such a task, which not every bag manufacturing company can do. Luckily, Checker Bag has the means and the expertise!

Just send us your vector design or even a pre-existing bag that is already printed. After your custom edit is all ready to go, we can provide full-color proofs to see exactly what it will look like before we go to press.
