About paper bag design:


Morgan Chaney paper bags come in a wide variety of types, sizes, color options, and paper qualities. At base, our custom printed paper shopping bags feature kraft paper, including twisted paper handles. However, we can accommodate nearly any vision you may have for your packaging.

Material options.

  • Paper types: We offer a variety of natural kraft, white kraft, and tinted options for our paper shopping bags. Natural kraft paper is unbleached and provides a warm, organic feel. White kraft paper is bleached to a brilliant white. Both natural and white kraft can be tinted a wide variety of colors to suit your brand.
  • Paper weights: Paper shopping bags come in a variety of paper weights ranging from lightweight – like you’d see in a grocery store bag – to heavyweight bags you may see at luxury retailers. Our packaging specialists can help source bags according to your custom packaging needs.
  • Recycled papers: Many of our paper options are made from papers that are 100% recycled (typically including a minimum 40% post-consumer recycled material). Our products adhere to location-based environmental requirements on packaging materials.

Printing options.

We offer a wide variety of printing options depending on the scale of your project, including flexographic, foil stamping, silk screening, and digital print. Visit our blog for more information on types of printing.

In terms of logo and design transfer, our printers can accommodate anything from a simple design up to six Pantone colors, and four-color process printing as well. We can also create bags that use full color via digital printing.
