Kraft Paper Bag is a general name for almost all paper bags made from craft. They come in different types: paper carrier bag, ziplock paper bag, paper lunch bag, paper sandwich bag, paper bread bag, etc. Dividing by color, there are white craft, brown kraft and also colorful ones. The main parameter for kraft paper bags is the GSM = gram per square meter. The higher is the gsm, the thicker the material is. This is different from what we use to measure for plastic bags, where we use µm = micrometer. However, we still use the µm or mircon for ziplock paper bags.
Paper carrier bags, also called paper shopping bags, paper handle bags, paper gift bags, is the most common kind in our daily life. When ordering paper carrier bags, it is important that you know the following:
GSM – It depends on how strong you would like the paper bags to be. At least you should know how many grams the bag should carry.

Material – There is mainly two kinds: brown kraft and white kraft. But you could always choose to go for colorful. Customization is always an available choice.
Handle Type – twisted handle, flat handle, die cut handle and ribbon/woven handles are available.
Quantity – Basic rule is higher quantity, lower price. The MOQ of paper shopping bags is 1000pcs.
Printing – custom printing or non-printing.
Ziplock paper bags are made from lamination of kraft paper and plastic film. The lamination furnished the bags with waterproof character. zipper paper pouches are used for food storage. With zipper, the craft pouch prevents the food from air and water. Another wonderful thing about zipper paper bags is the window design. It allows to show the product in a visual and direct way.
