Product Overview

Bio-degradable and compostable bags MULTI-PACK BAG (TO FIT 5 CARDS & 5 C6 ENVELOPES) 

Make your own retail packs. Self seal bag specially designed for packing cards for re-sale. 

Made from corn starch (annually renewable) these are fully biodegradable and compostable, breaking down to CO2 and H2O.

Ideal for greetings cards bio-bags are barely distinguishable from their polypropylene equivalents, offering similar clarity, rigidity and protection. However they are slightly less robust - if used for bulky items they will show white marks if you crumple them up. So they are not strong enough for very heavy items.

If you need to use clear packaging for your cards these bags are as green as you can get.

SHELF LIFE:
In normal conditions bio-film bags are quite stable - they may well take years to start degrading. (Our supplier has kept some of the first batch they made from about four years ago and they are still OK. Until they start to degrade we don't have a definitive time scale.)

The main thing to avoid is prolonged exposure to humidity - avoiding excessive heat, moisture and light will maximise shelf life.

(If a bag is splashed with water they don't start to degrade immediately. If wiped off straight away they should come to no harm.)

Customer Questions
Are your bags suitable for original artworks, prints, lino-cuts?

They are designed for use with greetings cards and many of our customers use them for putting artwork in.
However we would not recommend them for archival use or with valuable paintings as we cannot guarantee them to be 'acid free'. So for such applications our bag manufacturers would recommend the use of polyprop bags instead.
