Paper Sacks

From human food to animal feed, fine powders to cement, we have the paper sack you need, whatever your contents. Read our guide then talk to our team.

Open Mouth Block Bottom Paper Sacks

An open mouth block bottom paper sack is mainly used by food companies and animal feed producers. You can have it printed on both sides and on the block bottom base.

Like all paper sacks, it’s formed with piles of paper coming together (usually three) which gives it its strength, then the block base is formed and glued in place.

You can choose from:

  • Tubed in or loose polythene liners
  • 2 – 4 ply
  • Natural or bleached Kraft paper
  • 6 colours
  • Automatic palletisation

Sewn Bottom Paper Sacks

The staple bag for the milling, animal feed and potato industries. These open mouth sacks are formed by piles of paper coming together and are then stitched at the base with a crepe paper to form a seal.

You can choose from

  • Plain
  • Bespoke print in up to 6 colours
  • Pillow or gusseted design
  • Plastic or paper handles

Rolled Bottom & Rolled Top Paper Sacks

A more ‘up-market’ version of the sewn bottom sack. These sacks are really designed with the end user in mind as they’re predominantly for animal feed.

The paper plies are formed to create the sack size and then top is rolled and glued to form a seal. When you’re ready to use, you simply break the seal by hand.

Technically manufactured upside down (it seems that way because the print’s upside down until you fill the bag) they’re filled from the bottom up. The outer ply of these sacks is usually a clay coated finish or gloss – giving them a more appealing look.

It’s all about the valve…

Key to every sack is the valve. With any sack that you go for, once it’s filled it becomes a cube – and it’s down to the valve to stop your product escaping. So the valve can be made in several different ways, depending on what’s inside. That’s also why it’s important that you fill these sacks to their maximum, so the weight of your product acts as a method of closure itself. What all of this means is that’s there no set size for these bags – we’ll make them to suit the way that you fill, what you’re putting inside, the characteristics and density.

Paper Valve Sacks

Invented in 1898, paper valve sacks have been doing a great job as packaging for well over a century. Mainly used for fine powders, foodstuff and cement markets, they have a valve in one corner that can be either internal or external.

Made from multiple plies of paper tubed together to give the sack its strength, you can also opt for an inner polythene ply to stop water getting inside.
