Wholesale Bags for retail

When you run a retail business, shopping bags that are customized to showcase your branding and logo are an important aspect when it comes to promotion and advertising your business. That said, not every supplier of wholesale bags for retail is the same. When you’re sourcing a manufacturer for your retail bags, there are some key things that you should look for in a supplier.

Versatility and Variety

Perhaps the first thing you should look for is the amount of options you’ll have to choose from. For instance, the size of bags you want may vary depending on the type of products you sell—grocery stores use different sized bags than, for instance, record stores or cosmetics boutiques.

Some suppliers offer a limited selection of poly bags, so it’s essential to research what a company offers. For instance, at Star Poly, we are proud to offer our clients a wide selection of bags that suit a number of needs, including but not limited to:

  • Drawstring bags
  • Garment plastic rolls
  • Laminated bags
  • Packaging bags
  • Security bags
  • T-shirt bags
  • Zip-lock bags


Customer Care

When you’re looking for a company to make custom bags, it’s essential that you have confidence in their customer service.  Some companies will rush you through the buying process, maintain very little communication throughout the entire job, and if you have any concerns, questions, they can be dismissive or unresponsive.

It’s important to work with a business that not only produces great work and has a lot of options for the products they can offer you, but is also dedicated to providing great customer service. Look for a company who will be able to show you their line of work, including examples of past work, and one who is willing to work with you so you get the best possible bag.

Turnaround Time and Convenience

Finally, you’ll want to pay attention to how quick a company can produce your bags. A team of designers and other workers on hand and ready to work is key in this process, and the convenience of a quick turnaround is something you’ll surely love.

At Star Poly, we have multiple machines to work on our projects so that we can deliver your order sooner.  We offer overnight delivery and even immediate availability on specialty orders, and with a wide range of products available, we’ll make sure you’re ready to go in no time.
