What is the future of the paper bag business?

The future of paper bag business is bright, because paper bag packaging can be used in any place where physical goods are sold, and people also like to use beautiful paper bags to carry the goods they buy, go on vacation, travel, take part in business activities and so on.

My previous blog introduced the development history of packaging bags, you can click on this link to have a look. At first, people loaded things with gourds, shells, leaves, etc., and later developed into fur weaving, Reed weaving, metal, pottery, cloth bags, plastic bags, and then today’s paper bags. It has been found that plastic bags and paper bags are the most economical packaging methods, because plastic bags and paper bags are cheap and easy to customize and carry. However, the burning of plastic bags is easy to produce toxic gases that can cause cancer, affecting the survival and reproduction of life on earth. While buried plastic bags occupy a large area of land for a long time, plastic bags buried underground for a long time can not be degraded, affecting the sustainable development of the land and occupying people’s

living space.

Thus it can be seen that whether burning or burying plastic bags will affect the sustainable development of the environment. As a result, many countries began to ban the use of plastic bags or reduce the use of plastic bags.

The paper for making paper bags is made from the wood pulp of trees, although it will consume some forest resources, but because the paper is environmentally friendly, recyclable, biodegradable, high utilization rate and convenient to make paper bags, so many paper bag manufacturers and wholesalers, dealers, retailers are willing to use paper bags to develop their own packaging business.

How much does the paper bag business cost?

The cost of the paper bag business depends on what kind of international trade division you are engaged in:

If you are a paper bag manufacturer, you need part of the money to buy paper bag printing machines, laminating machines, indentation machines, rent a suitable factory for production, recruit some workers to engage in production, and pay water and electricity bills and raw materials such as base paper. the purchase cost of pigments and so on. It is also important to find a good designer who can help you design packaging designs of any pattern according to the customer’s requirements. The cost of the machine varies according to its performance. The factory can be rented in a more suburban location, so the rent will be much cheaper. If at the beginning, there is no performance, we can recruit fewer workers, each machine with a captain, two or three employees who make paper bags, if the volume of business increases, we can recruit a large number of workers. If you do not have any experience in opening a paper bag factory, it is recommended that you go to work in the paper bag factory for a month, roughly familiar with the whole paper bag production process, machine capacity, raw material consumption and other information, and then it is not too late to start by yourself.

If you just want to be a trader or importer or wholesaler, you need to develop your own customers. You need to have part of the money on hand, go to the factory to buy custom-made paper bags, and you need to know some knowledge about international trade.

If you want to be a distributor or retailer, you need to have your own end customer base and only need less money. Buy paper bags from trader, importer and or wholesaler and sell them in your own physical store or online store.
