Poly Bags for E-commerce (Distribution and Fulfillment)

Posted by Bill Clyde on May 19, 2022 10:06:03 AM

As ecommerce sales continue to grow exponentially, finding a reliable supplier for your packaging needs can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. And by “reliable supplier” I’m talking about finding a quality product that is delivered in a reasonable amount of time, bought at a fair price and provided by a committed business partner.

At North Coast Plastics, we understand that you need your packaging materials to protect your product, give your product a clear/clean and professional look, and provide a permanent, or temporary, seal to protect your product during shipping. 

There are several packaging materials that could be required to get your product to your customer like boxes, packing tape, pallets, stretch wrap, labels and of course one of the most important items on that list - your plastic bags.

Lip and Tape Bags for E-commerce

A lip and tape bag is mostly used in the clothing industry as it is a very convenient unit to ship a t-shirt, ball cap, dress shirt, pants, etc. 

Lip and tape bags are a great alternative to things like zipper or heat sealing bags and offer hi clarity film for easy viewing of the contents inside, varying film thicknesses to match your product needs, and a closure option (tape) to make your fulfillment process efficient. 

These bags are also extremely easy to pack. Simply pick the item from your inventory, place it inside the bag, tear away the easy peel liner, seal the bag and you’re ready to ship your product to your customer.

Lip and tape bags can be packaged loose in a box or on a wicket and cost ranges from $7.00 per thousand bags to $200.00/thousand bags.  

Summing It Up 

Lip and tape bags may be a great option for your product, but if it they aren't the right option there are many other types of bags to choose from to fit your needs. 

North Coast Plastics, Inc. is a custom manufacturer of polyethylene bags for use in packaging products sold online. We’ve been supplying various types of plastic bags necessary to protect products throughout the distribution process for over 20 years.
