Deciding Plastic Bag Specifications

1. How is a plastic bag measured?

To measure a plastic bag, lay it flat. The width is the first number, then the height. For example, if your bag is 15” wide and 18” tall, it is a 15” x 18” bag. If the bag has a gusset (a fold on the side), lay it completely flat and measure the gusset all the way across. If your bag has a side gusset of 4”, your bag would be a (15+4)” x 18” bag.

2. What is the difference between high density and low density plastic bags?

High density is the crinkly or frosted type of plastic bag. Merchandise bags and singlet bags are available in high density plastic. Grocery store type bags are generally high density bags. These bags are economical and durable. Low density is the smooth glossy type of plastic bag, often used in retail applications and for trade shows. Both merchandise bags and singlet bags are also available in low density plastic.
