How To Screen Print Recyclable Poly Bags

Recyclable Poly Bags are popping up all over the place.  Whether you are shopping at the mall, grocery store or in need of a beach bag; these are the perfect bags to advertise  your logo or business with.  These bags are sheets or web structures bonded together by entangling fibers that are non-woven in light weight recyclable bags shapes.  These flat, light, porous sheets are usually made from melted plastic or a plastic film.  Non-woven polypropylene is a practical choice for these bags, because they are durable, strong and light weight.

Screen printing these bags can be a challenge since the material can not withstand the 325 degrees Fahrenheit needed to cure most plastisol inks.  We recommend using International Coatings 3804 LF low cure additive.  By using this screen printing ink additive the ink will be cured without melting or ruining your material.

Always do a few test prints until you get your overall desired finish, but we are here to help with any of your jobs.  Call us today!th
