Let's start with this bag. http://www.mrtakeoutbags.com/product/tn-4.html
What I've seen is fold make a woodblock for the major print then printed labels for the product details.
So the process is to put the big logo on the woodblock then have the bags all ready. When the product is filled, then details are printed on the labels then labels applied to the bags.
I am seeking advice, opinions and
information regarding printers that are capable of printing on thick
paper, specifically paper coffee bags.
The bags I am looking to
print on are 1/2 lb. & 1 lb. Natural Brown Kraft Paper Bags with Tin
Ties and an Earth First Ingeo Polyactide (PLA) Liner. You can Google
this description to see a picture of the product I am referring to.I
have searched, but can't find the exact thickness of these bags. I know
it will vary from the top (thinnest) to the bottom (thickest,) where it
is folded. I think it is also important to note that there is a tin tie
at the top of the bag which is fairly 'thick' by paper standards, and
it is also a different width than the coffee bag itself. Laid flat, the
bag measures 4.25'' x 10.5''.
I would like to print on both the
front and the back of the bags, not at the same time necessarily. Also, I
don't mind manually flipping and feeding bags if I need to.
really appreciate any advice/opinions/information about printers that
will work for this application. Please point me in the right direction!
Thanks in advance.
