Custom Printed Merchandise Bags Now Available!

Made in the USA



Looking for a fully customized shopping bag or maybe just add your logo to our stock bags? We can help. Danco Packaging Products offers three options for customizing bags. All made in the USA from recycled, reusable material.

In-line Flexo Printing

Our bags are made from rolls of paper. The first customizing method has a 5,000 minimum per item and involves printing of the paper prior to folding into a bag, "in-line", on a three color press that is an integral part of the bag machine. Up to full coverage printing and bag making are executed in an automated, machine controlled process on 100% Recycled Natural Kraft, 100% Recycled TULSAKRAFT Versa and White Kraft papers.

Post Printing & Hot Stamping

The second and third methods are post converted in a manual process, with the logo applied to the paper after it has been folded into a bag. Post printing and hot stamping have obvious restrictions, including coverage area, panels that can be printed cost effectively or at all, numbers of colors and registration between them and extremely limited photo or screen tone capability. Nevertheless, post printing and hot stamping, most commonly one color one side, are excellent alternatives for minimum quantity customized handle bags - as few as two cases - and never a lot charge. Below we provide a list of each bag size available for post printing and hot stamping and the area available for printing on each bag.

Sample Natural Kraft Tints and Versatripe Bags with Foil Stamping

Important tips:

  • printing with ink is most appropriate for White Kraft and Natural Kraft bags.Call Us Today! 800-831-3220
  • PMS colors on white paper are not reformulated for Natural Kraft, VERSAStripe or Natural Kraft Tints.
  • Best results on VERSAStripe and Natural Kraft Tints are achieved with foil stamping. Foils have greater opacity to cover VERSAStripe and Natural Kraft Tints than water based post printing inks, allowing brand statement to be as prominent as possible.
  • Process color catalog printing has its limitations. Foil swatches created with digital techniques to represent Matte Metallic, Pigment and Metallic finishes and colors that can not be photographed without glare. PMS ink colors are digital CMYK. See a solid swatch PMS book for reference. We print solid PMS inks. This selection tool is to help Customers narrow down best choices. Not exact matches but close reference points.
