If you're a shop or business looking to buy wedding cake boxes, it can be overwhelming the amount of choice you receive. Most can be split into categories based on their material: Printed Paper carrier bags, Polythene Carrier Bags, and Eco-Friendly Carrier Bags, each having their own advantages, disadvantages, and uses that they are most suited for.

Printed Paper Carrier Bags

Paper carrier bags are commonly used in the retail business as an alternative to plastic. They are durable and versatile, able to stand up to many different printing techniques. This versatility allows for bags to be completely bespoke and include many different finishes, such as Spot UV, Embossing, Hot Foil, Lamination and, being paper, the ability to be recycled.

paper bags and boxes can be further divided based of paper, type weight and handle type:


Printed Luxury Rope Handle Paper Bags are typically stronger than an average paper bag, with gsm (grams per square meter) ranging from around 170-300gsm. This allows for a strong gusset, giving the bag the ability to stand by itself. They can be printed using a wide range of techniques and finishes. Rope handles are easily attached through punched holes and ribbons can be attached to give the bag an extra special feel. They are well suited to retail, designers, boutiques and fashion & jewellery customers.
