FAQs about kraft bags

Can takeaway paper bags hold hot food or beverages?

Takeaway paper bags are suitable for food and other takeaway items. However, while they can provide some insulation, their ability to retain heat is limited compared to insulated containers or bags designed specifically for hot items.

When transporting items in a paper bag, we recommend placing your food items in containers specifically designed for heat retention. These containers are typically made from materials that offer better insulation, such as foam or thermal paper, to keep the contents hot and prevent heat from transferring to the outer surface of the container or bag.

You can also use additional insulating materials, such as foil or thermal liners, to provide extra heat protection. Wrap the hot food or beverage in these materials before placing it inside the paper bag. When possible, limit the duration of transportation to minimise heat loss. Shorter travel times help maintain the desired temperature of the hot food or beverage.

Are takeaway paper bags suitable for greasy or oily foods?

We recommend wrapping oily and greasy foods in additional materials before placing them in a paper bag. While takeaway paper bags resist light grease and oil, large spills and leaks can cause the bag to be weakened or potentially leak.

If you’re transporting oily foods in a paper bag, we recommend taking the following precautions:

  • Double Bagging: Double bagging provides extra protection and will prevent paper bags from breaking if exposed to oil. Place the greasy or oily food item in a separate bag or wrap it in grease-resistant materials, such as wax paper or a plastic bag, before placing it inside a paper bag.

  • Packaging Reinforcement: Reinforce the bag by placing an absorbent material, such as a paper towel or napkin, at the bottom to absorb any excess grease or oil.

  • Leak-Proof Containers: For particularly greasy or oily foods, it’s best to use leak-proof containers made of plastic or other materials that can better contain any potential leaks or spills.

What are BioBags?

BioBags are paper shopping bags made from post-consumer recycled FSC™ certified paper and other controlled sources. The paper used in BioBags comes from recycled materials and responsibly managed forests, adhering to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™) standards.

BioBags are considered a more sustainable alternative to traditional plastic bags. They reduce the reliance on non-renewable resources, emit fewer greenhouse gases during production and help divert waste from landfills by being compostable. Despite their compostable nature, BioBags are still sturdy and durable, providing strength for carrying a variety of items. They are often tear-resistant and have a robust capacity of 4kg or 5kg, depending on your size of choice.

With their compostability and eco-friendly materials, BioBag brown paper bags are a great choice for eco-friendly businesses that don’t want to compromise on durability.

Why is it important to stick to the weight capacity of paper bags?

Handles on paper bags generally have a lower weight-carrying capacity than plastic bags. Exceeding the recommended weight limit increases the risk of handles ripping or tearing.

However, it's important to note that paper and plastic bags have their own weight limits, and exceeding them can compromise their integrity. Factors such as the bag's quality, the material's thickness and the handles' design can also influence their ability to handle heavier loads.

Always stick to the weight limits specified by the manufacturer or retailer whenever possible. If you need to carry heavier items, try putting your items inside two paper bags in case one set of handles breaks.

Our bulk paper gift bags with handles stand up against heavy items up to 4 kg or 5 kg, depending on your size of choice. Explore our range of paper bags with handles online and find the right fit for your business today.

What are tin tie paper bags?

Tin tie paper bags are resealable paper bags that provide superior insulation and protection compared to standard paper bags.

Sometimes known as coffee bags or bakery bags, these bags feature tin tie closure mechanisms made from a metal strip or wire. This wire is encased in the bag’s top fold and is generally lined with a layer of food-safe adhesive. The tin tie allows the bag to be easily closed and resealed by folding down the top and securing it with the metal strip.

These bags are commonly used for packaging coffee beans, loose-leaf tea, baked goods, snacks, grains and other dry food products.

Are tin tie bags right for your business? Take a look at some of the benefits of our resealable tin tie bags:

  • Freshness: The resealable tin tie closure helps maintain product freshness by keeping air, moisture and odours out. This feature is particularly important for items like coffee and tea that need to retain their flavour.
  • Convenience: The tin tie closure is easy to open and close, giving you quick access to your items without compromising freshness.
  • Sustainability: Tin tie paper bags are considered a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic bags. The paper material is biodegradable, compostable and recyclable, making them a great fit for anyone looking for sustainable packaging options.

What are SOS paper bags?

SOS (Self Opening Satchel) paper bags, also known as self-opening style bags, are a popular type of paper bag for grocery stores and any food service businesses. The opening of the bag features a fold-over flap at the top, secured by adhesive or glue.

SOS paper bags are typically made from durable kraft paper, which provides strength and stability. The bag features a rectangular or square bottom and gusseted sides that expand when filled. This design allows the bag to stand upright on its own, providing stability and making it easier to load and transport items.

The self-opening feature of SOS paper bags makes them efficient and convenient for quick packaging operations. They provide a sturdy and reliable option for carrying various types of items, including groceries, merchandise, clothing and more.

SOS paper bags are known for their versatility, strength, and ease of use, making them a popular choice in the retail industry. They offer a practical and eco-friendly packaging solution while ensuring convenience for both businesses and consumers.

Are cotton rope handles more durable than standard paper handles?

Cotton rope handles are generally more durable than standard paper handles. The use of cotton rope handles enhances the paper bag's overall strength and load-bearing capacity, making it more resilient when carrying heavier or bulkier items.

The thickness and construction of cotton rope handles make them more durable than paper, as cotton ropes are made from multiple strands of cotton fibres tightly twisted together. This provides extra strength and reinforcement, making them a great choice for heavy items.

Why should I choose paper bags over plastic?

From environmental sustainability to aesthetic appeal, there are plenty of reasons to choose paper bags over plastic. Here are some of the main advantages of paper bags over plastic bags.

  • Environmental Impact: One of the most significant advantages of paper bags is their reduced environmental impact compared to plastic bags. Paper bags are typically made from renewable resources that are biodegradable and recyclable. They break down more easily in the environment, reducing long-term pollution and harm to wildlife. Plus, paper bags are considered safer for both humans and animals. Unlike plastic bags, they do not pose a suffocation risk, particularly for young children and animals.

  • Biodegradability and Recycling: Paper bags decompose naturally over time, contributing to soil health. They can be recycled multiple times, further reducing waste. Recycling paper bags helps conserve resources, reduces energy consumption and minimises landfill usage.

  • Versatility: Paper bags come in various sizes and shapes to accommodate different items. They can be used for groceries, shopping, packaging and gift-giving. Their flexibility makes them suitable for a wider range of purposes than plastic bags.

  • Branding: Paper bags provide an excellent opportunity for branding and customisation. They offer a printable surface that allows you to showcase your logo, artwork or messaging, enhancing brand visibility and customer engagement.

  • Perception and Consumer Preference: Many consumers see paper bags as more environmentally friendly, leading to a positive brand image. By offering paper bags, businesses can align with consumer preferences and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. Plus, some consumers refuse to use plastic bags when purchasing items.
