Custom Euro Style Bag Features:

European style paper shopping bags offer the greatest number of base materials, printing and structural options. Euro totes can be manufactured in any shape or size and have the widest range of printing capabilities. Euro bags can be printed offset, heat-stamped, embossed, silk-screened or in any other printing process.

"Sheet-fed" Euro bags begin the manufacturing process as sheets of paper, affording these bags the option to either be hand-crafted or automatically formed by machine. This makes the Euro tote bag graphically superior to other styles of shopping bags. With the highest promotional value, look and feel. This bag is suitable for any project, from designer boutiques to larger scale luxury cosmetic and fashion retailers.

Euro bags can also be made with a variety of bag manufacturing base papers, including coated or uncoated kraft, textured signature base papers, custom beater-dyed, natural or white kraft, foil and metalized.


john varvatos beater dyed embossed ing bag paper Beater Tint: A color pigment / dye is added to the pulp in the beater during the manufacturing process. The alternative is to print tint, where paper is printed on one or two sides with 100% ink coverage.

Beater tinting adds color to all the paper fibers, not just the outer surface. So paper is tinted evenly both inside and out. Beater tint colors permeate paper 100% throughout - so there are no white edges showing. In addition, signature papers can be matched to any PMS color and embossing textures. Typical minimums for custom beater tinting paper is 10-20 tons, stock is less. The quantity of bags for this volume of paper would vary based on size.

Modern Arts also offers a large selection of pre-printed designer base materials in many colors and textures.
