Choose the Right Size and Minimum Thickness


Choosing the right size zip lock bag is extremely important for your specific storage application. If you cannot anticipate a suitable zip lock bag, the small plastic zip lock bag will be torn when the items you try to put in the bag are too large. In fact, in comparison, the cost of large zip lock plastic bag is higher, and it also increases the difficulty of handling.


How to determine whether the selected custom made zip lock bags are suitable for your application?


To obtain a suitable transparent zippered plastic bag, some criteria to consider include:


1. To obtain the length of the bag, measure from the bottom of the reclosable seal to the bottom of the bag.


2. In order to get the width of the bag, please measure from side to side.


If your application requires storage of rigid items, choose a bag that is ½ inch higher than the measured bag width (W). At this time, rigid objects can easily pass through the bag opening without any difficulty.


According to the thickness or volume of the item, adjust the size accordingly. For example, you can add ½ʺ to 2 for on both sides of the bag to avoid loosening.


Clear plastic zip lock bags of various sizes are manufactured in different thicknesses. You must choose a zipper lock bag with the right thickness to get the desired effect.
