Why use a Gusseted Poly Bag?
There are two primary reasons for using gusseted poly bags. First, if your product is bulky or has an irregular shape, the side-gusseted plastic bag expands when filled with the product. When compared to flat bags (non-gusseted bags), these expanding bags provide the best solution for bulkier or irregular shaped items. The second reason for using gusseted poly bags is to allow for the package to stand upright on a flat surface. This is perfect for packaging items such as screws, candy, or display packaging on a shelf.

What are the Benefits of Using Gusseted Poly Bags?
Poly packaging is a popular and versatile option for kitchens, markets, restaurants, groceries, and any other kind of food or retail business that packages or ships products.
Unlike regular packaging, Elements Supply offers poly gusseted bags that get the job done.
Check out these top 5 reasons why businesses can benefit from using these bags:
Gusseted bags can stand up on their own. These bags are sturdy enough to stay upright without help and without falling over. Due their flat surface, they sit still once a product is placed inside. This makes them excellent storage or display options because you don’t need to worry that the bag will slump or spill. Streamline your packing process with bags that stay up to ensure the fastest and most efficient packing workflow.
Gusseted poly bags are expandable. Each of our packages expands at the bottom up to the second dimension to enable you to easily package large or bulky items. Flat commercial poly bags that do not contain gussets can make it difficult to fit products that are a non-standard shape or size. They are also a great way to display multiple kinds of products in a simple and effective way.
They are versatile and portable. A high-quality, food-safe bag that doesn’t leach or spill is essential for multiple kinds of food service, industrial, and retail operational needs. Lightweight, durable, flexible, and available in a variety of mil measurements and sizes, they are versatile enough to cover a wide range of service and product requirements. High-clarity versions such as the 1.5 Mil Gusseted Poly Bag offers a clear view of the contents while protecting the integrity of the product.
Ultra-thin and feather-light packaging makes them easy to store and transport. The gusseted feature distributes weight more evenly over the entire bag which makes them easier to carry. They also take up less space compared to other kinds of packaging materials, which leaves more space to store and display more of your products for sale.
They are cost-effective. Buying plastic packaging in bulk packs of 1,000 or 2,000 can save you money on the cost of each bag in the long run. You can also get discounts depending on how many cases that you purchase.
Buying poly packaging in bulk also ensures that you have enough bags on hand for mass packing, shipping, or displaying needs. A bulk pack from Elements Supply also ensures that bags are kept clean and dispensable until you need them.
They are more eco-friendly. Elements Supply poly bags are manufactured from completely virgin raw materials. Research shows that virgin raw materials are more durable and perform better over time. These bags are fully recyclable, which helps reduce waste and conserve resources.
