How we produce high quality and well-printed cotton bags for your business

26th November, 2019

Reusable bags are becoming more popular as they are good for the environment and provide a better customer experience than plastic ones. Cotton Bag Co has some of the best manufacturing processes in the industry, here is exactly how we produce our cotton bags for your business.

Cotton Bags


  1. Sourcing the cotton for the bags

The first stage we go for when creating our cotton bags is sourcing the cotton canvas itself. We manufacture our cotton bags around the world, in the UK, India and China. The cotton is harvested from the ethically sourced plantations with environmental sustainability at the top of their priority list. Once we have the cotton it is time to process it into our cotton bags.


  1. Creating the cotton bags

Once we have our ethically sourced cotton it is time to process it into our cotton bags. We take the cotton sheets and stitch them using robust strings. In the process, we also attach the handles to both sides of the bag opening. After this, we prepare the cotton bag for the printing stage of the process.


  1. Printing on the cotton bags

When it comes to printing on your cotton bags, getting the right design in place is essential. The Cotton Bag Co offers a variety of choices for this stage of the process. Screen printing allows us to print up to 10 different colours.

In this stage depending on the printing method, we can also use a PDF print design which we can develop with the client. Our printing facilities are located in the UK as well as our overseas partner facilities in China and India.


We can print the perfect design for your business needs

Our years of expertise means we know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to printing the right design on your cotton bags. Get in touch today to arrange a quote or discuss any questions you have on how best to print on your cotton bags.

We hold a large stock of cotton bags in the UK which can be screen printed or for more complex full colour artwork heat transfer printed.
