Plastic merchandise bags are those bags that are custom made for a specific reason or an occasion. These merchandise bags generally have logos, emblems or designs on them and can be in a variety of colors or one specific color. These can be given separately or with certain specific items and products which are appropriate to the occasion for which they have been specifically ordered. These are usually ordered in bulk, as only large scale gatherings demand such bags. Companies place bulk orders for merchandise bags bearing their logos, during certain milestones, conferences or large scale gatherings.
Plastic merchandise bags are also used for promotional purposes for the endorsement of certain products, services or even of certain events, movies and music. These bags can also be bought over the counter, at average prices. The ones which can be brought over the counter usually have some specific symbol or logo on them. Plastic merchandise bags are popular due to the ease with which they can be carried and handled. There is no special care needed to maintain them as there is to maintain cloth bags or leather bags.
The cost of producing plastic merchandise bags is also quite low as compared to other types of bags. It proves to be quite economical for an organization to order plastic merchandise bags as opposed to cloth or leather merchandise bags. The time taken to produce plastic merchandise bags is also less when compared to other types of bags. Of course, they are not void of disadvantages. One major disadvantage is that a plastic bag can be used only a limited number of times after which it tears and has to be disposed off. Another drawback is that it cannot hold very heavy items and is only good for lightweight products.
