When you gonna order customized paper carrier bags for your commodities from JiRong, you can tell us your creative idea and let us realize it. But if you can provide a professional electronic edition design drawing, it will be a great help. This article talks about some general standards on the paper carrier bag design.
First, we must know some related terms about the paper carrier bag’s construction.
After confirming the product size(length, width, and height), we need to create it into an unfolded state in the design software.
unfold width = bleed zone(3mm or 5mm) + width * 2 – paper thickness(1mm) + length * 2 + gluing zone(20mm)
unfold height = top folding zone(40mm) + height + width/2 + gluing zone(20mm)
It’s primarily for the post cutting processing. The larger the bleed zone is, the easier the cutting job will be, and it helps improve the efficiency.
No. Most of the time, the gluing zone is 20mm, and the top folding zone is 40mm. But if your order quantity is large, you can reduce the size appropriately to save the cost.
For this, there are 2 points that need to follow:
a. The top folding zone must be able to cover the handle holes after folding.
Once the top folding zone doesn’t cover the handle holes, then it will make that part weak and easy to break during use. Covering makes that part double layers and becomes stronger.
b. The gluing zone size is decided by the paper gsm and how much weight the bag needs to carry during use.
The wider the gluing zone and the heavier the gsm, the paper bag will be stronger. You can also customize these two factors according to the actual application scenarios to save more cost.
a. Typically, the gluing zone connects the bigger wall and is on the right side; that makes handmade gluing more convenient.
b. Designs can not cover the handle holes and the folds.
Some greenhand designers often make these mistakes. To avoid these problems and save money, the best you should do it’s to ask for some samples and check them out clearly.
c. Set some pores on the gluing zone.
If you select the paper with a heavier gsm, you’d better set some pores on the gluing zone in your design. It can make the glue osmosis and becomes more solid. Also better not to coat the gluing zone if you use coated paper.
d. Take some cuts when you select the heavier paper(over 300gsm.) It helps avoid arched problems.
