This is the latest technology in printing for WPP Bags. The process is a little different to the normal printing style where the images & words are printed directly on to the bag fabric. With the Gravure process, the images are printed onto a thin film of Biaxially Orientated Polypropylene (BOPP). The film is then laminated onto the WPP bag. The film can be supplied with either a gloss/shiny finish, or it can be done using a matt finish. There are pro’s & con’s for both styles which we can work through with you depending on your requirements. These bags can be offered in a tubular form where the film is laminated to the fabric on both sides, or in a bag which has been “back sealed”. This is where the bag has been laminated as a flat piece of fabric which is then glued back together on the back panel.
This style of printing allows customers to have photo quality images & designs on their packaging. It is especially useful where the bags will be competing with other products at point of sale. If you want to stand out from the crowd then this is the style of bag you need. Our staff have extensive experience with this product and will be able to advise you of the best way to maximise your packaging effect.
