    Paper Lunch Bag Uses

    You might also see or hear these paper grocery bags referred to as Custom SOS Bags which stands for 'Self Opening Sack'. This is more of an industry term that refers to the ability to hold the bag by the top, using the thumb notch, and swinging the bag so that it opens by itself. In everyday language, you'll hear these referred to as paper lunch bags, paper grocery bags, lunch sacks etc. When you think of the classic "brown paper lunch bag", this is what you're referring to.

    Custom Paper Bag Sizes

    We offer a variety of sizes of these paper bags in order to fid a wide array of applications ranging from retail packaging to tons of food service applications. Historically, the sizes of these bags are referred to by the amount of weight of dry goods (foods could be stored without immediate danger of spoiling e.g. beans, flours, whole grains, oats etc.) So you might see or hear them referred to as a "Six pound SOS bag". Of course, that might not apply to your specific product, as there would be a higher volume of something big and bulky like light baked goods, versus something dense like meat wrapped in butcher paper. Since the sizing could be tricky, call us or fill out the form and our reps will work with you to find the best Paper Lunch Sack size for your products.
