Whether you have a retail store, pharmacy, gourmet food business, or restaurant, SOS style paper bags are a great custom packaging option for branding your business. These inexpensive and eco-friendly paper bags are a versatile choice for packaging many different products.

SOS stands for “self-opening sack” and this packaging product was patented by Charles Stilwell back in 1883 and it is a landmark in US design history. With his side gusseted design structure, the bottoms of the paper bags were made flat so that they could stand alone when placed on a flat surface. These bags were the first advent of what later developed into handled paper shopping bags.

SOS style paper bags are commonly made with natural or white kraft recycled materials but can also be manufactured with custom colors. These bags can be printed on all four sides with one or multiple ink colors. Digital printing is also available for full-color graphics on certain bag styles.

Custom paper SOS bags are popular for fast casual and fast food restaurants as well as gourmet food companies and traditional retail stores. If needed, these bags can be coated in food-safe wax to prevent moisture and grease damage through the bags. These bags can also be made for direct food contact.

There are a variety of sizes available for many different products and businesses, and these paper bags can be customized with die-cut handles or top closures. SOS bags can also be designed with clear viewing windows for a sneak peek of the products inside.
