Plastic bags are an extreme blend of utility and affordability. Incredibly strong in proportion to their weight, easy to store and inexpensive. Despite increasing regulation, plastic bags continue to be one of the most popular types of packaging in the US.
American Retail Supply curates a large selection of plastic bags designed to accommodate the myriad requirements of the retail industry. Bags are generally divided between High and Low-density. This designation refers to the chemical makeup of the plastic not the thickness of the bag. Hi density bags are typical of a grocery store, these semi-transparent bags are very economical and easy to store. Lo-density bags are more durable, they are not generally transparent and are employed by retailers with heavier products or who want a more robust feel to their bags. Your city or state may have regulations that limit the thickness or type of bag that can be used commercially, make sure to verify that your order is compliant.
