Patch handle carrier bags
Patch handle carrier bags are probably the most lasting and usual form of carrier bag. These carriers have an additional patch reinforcement pasted to the inside of the cut-out handle to make them stronger and more durable. A patch handle carrier is of continual gauge. To strengthen the handle extra material is added, either glued or heat sealed usually finished with a straight cut punched out handle. They can be printed up to 100% in full colour.
Flexi-loop style are cost effective being similar to patch handled carrier bags, but with a welded polythene loop handle attached a flexiloop handle is an ideal solution to add a little more class to a polythene carrier bag. With an external handle the bag height can be shorter saving material and cost. The flexiloop handle can be made with LDPE or HDPE .
Vest type carrier bags
Vest type carrier bags are designed for large scale production and economy, a vest handled carrier is made of High Density Polythene, usually of very low gauge. This allows a very low cost bag to be used for holding a relatively heavy weight. These bags can also be produced using a biodegradable material. Printed vest carrier bags are one of the most popular bags used in everyday shopping, most of the convenience stores and supermarkets use them as they are a strong and cost effective carrier bag.
Clip close carriers
Clip close carriers are very popular with men's outfitters as they are side vented (gusseted) as opposed to bottom vented and the clip close handles provide the bag with a distinctive shape. A twin clip carrier is manufactured using a consisitent gauge, but has two plastic handles which clip together to close the bag and form a comfortable handle.
