When customizing a poly bag, it’s important to ensure the ink adheres without compromising the integrity of the bag or contaminating the contents in any way. AlphaPoly uses flexographic technology to print your branding designs on bags.

Flexographic printing has been around for decades, with improvements along the way. Essentially the set up for flexography involves creating polymer plates which are then attached to a roller. As a result, flexographic printers can print using a wide array of inks on a variety of types of surfaces, making your bags colourful and attention-grabbing for shoppers.
