Sourcing Bag Packaging: Step-by-Step


Identifying All Bagging Needs

The first step in the sourcing process is making sure Kanary understands your specific bagging needs. Our experts discuss what you need bags for, other possible solutions besides bags, as well as graphic design or branding concerns for your bags. After our experts have a clear understanding of what you need, we get started on finding a supplier.


Packaging Bagging Sourcing Search

Kanary's search for a bag factory begins with 30-50 potential suppliers, which our team narrows down based on lead times, communication ability, and product specialty. We continue to narrow this list down until we have about 5-6 options that look promising. From there, Kanary moves to the sampling phase.


Bag Sampling

Kanary manages the entire sampling process, including delivering design requests, scheduling delivery of samples from factories, reviewing samples with our clients, and submitting feedback as needed. Sampling is a step that should never be skipped, and it helps to ensure that any given factory can be a great fit for your needs.


Final Supplier Selection

After we review samples, we consult with our clients on a final factory selection. Kanary physically inspects factories as part of this process, and we facilitate communication between clients and factory managers during final negotiations. When a decision is made and a contract is signed, Kanary moves to mass production.


Managing Mass Bag Production

Kanary manages production when it begins, maintaining an on-site presence to ensure quality control protocols are followed. Our team quickly responds to production issues, whether that means a defect is found, a general production issue is detected, or if any other problem arises. Kanary continues to supervise production until the order is complete, where our team makes sure that products are packaged appropriately for shipping.


Shipping, Customs Clearance, and Final Delivery

Our shipping logistics experts handle all aspects of shipment, including booking a shipping container, organizing consolidated shipping (if applicable), monitoring sea freight, and preparing your order for customs. After customs is cleared, Kanary connects with a domestic shipping partner to get your order sent to the final destination.

Words from our clients

I’ve been in this industry for a long time and I was surprised that Kanary was able to help find us machines for a 1/3 of the cost compared with US and European manufacturers. What I really enjoy with Kanary is that they constantly keep me in the loop and get back to me almost instantaneously. What’s also great is that they kept me in the loop with the shipping, customs clearance, delivery, and also arrange travels for engineers from the factory to install our equipment.  The quality has been outstanding and I’m in the process of building out a new facility with them.

I’ve been in the construction industry for over 30 years. We’ve always bought from US distributors. I reached out to Kanary out of curiosity to see if we could find similar construction materials of high quality. I did not think they were going to make much progress and so I was shocked when they found the exact manufacturer that my distributors have been buying from within 2 weeks. They were able to make contact and have the factory send me samples within a week.  By connecting directly with the factory, we’re looking at savings of over 30%.

We’ve done quite a few different packaging projects with Kanary in the past (Child-resistant packaging, glass jars, plastic bags, shipper boxes, etc.). We sent AI files to Kanary, who then worked directly with the factory's design team to make prototypes of the packaging. Our in-house designer is very particular about our designs and Kanary was really flexible and worked with us when our designers wanted to make changes in the packaging development process. They were able to manufacture different prototypes at different price points, which gave us options when making our final decision.

Bag Packaging FAQ

What are industrial poly bags?

Industrial poly bags are poly bags designed for industrial use. This generally means that they:

  • Are larger
  • Can be sealed more securely
  • Are more durable and can carry heavier objects

What are jute bags?

A jute bag is a bag made from jute plant fibers (a kind of plant that naturally grows in Bangladesh). There are multiple commercial reasons to use jute bags, though they are commonly used for transporting and storing coffee beans.

How can you personalize jute bags?

The best way to mass produce personalized jute bags is to connect with a jute bag supplier with customization capabilities. That way, all you need to do is send your graphic design requests to the factory, where they can be applied during production. 

It's important to note that the factory will not make designs for you. You need to create your own design files (for example, Adobe Illustrator files) and send them to the factory. If you don't have a design but know you need one, then Kanary can help! We offer a la carte graphic design services for clients as needed.

How do you make custom printed mylar bags?

For commercial purposes, businesses should not be making their own custom printed mylar bags (unless they have the factory equipment to do so). Instead, if a business is already sourcing mylar bags from a factory, they have two options to get mylar bags custom-printed:

  • They can look for a secondary supplier than can print custom graphics on bags (a common strategy)
  • They can look for a new supplier that has the capability to fabricate mylar bags and print custom graphics

Searching for a supplier with a niche ability can be tricky, especially if you want to partner with an overseas factory (like in China). If you don't have experience searching for a supplier, we recommend partnering with a sourcing specialist, like Kanary, to assist with the search.

How do you seal mylar bags for food production?

If you are sealing bags yourself, specialty heating equipment is often used after mylar bags have been filled. If you are sourcing mylar bags for domestic food production, you may need specialty machinery, which Kanary can help you source from China.

Can Kanary help me find a factory to make prototype bag packaging for a unique product?
