A guide to choosing the right custom paper bag weight for your business
Choosing the right packaging for your business is extremely important. Hence, you should have a basic understanding of the weight of custom paper bags.
Paper bags must be selected according to their thickness and body, based on the business' needs. As we will see below, thickness and weight are two very different concepts.
How to measure custom paper bags (weight and thickness)?
Weight is defined as grams per square meter of paper.Thickness refers to the distance between the two sides of a sheet of paper.So, the two concepts are different, but they must complement each other when making and using bags.
This is important because some papers have more holes and can be thicker but lighter. For example, a coated glossy paper that has fewer pores and thus appears thinner.
In some papers, the porosity and thickness are greater, but the weight is lower, which is important. A paper with gloss and coating has fewer pores, so it looks thinner.
Weight is measured in grams per square meter (gr/m2). When a sheet of paper weighs 150 grams, it means that it contains 150 grams.Weights between 60 and 350 grams are printable. A paper bag weighing 100 grams can support a weight of 12 kilograms, which shows strength and endurance, and implies a lot of efficiency.
