At GoGoPak, we offer 2 post-printing options. Post-printing simply means, printing that is done after the bag is made. As well, we offer multi-color imprinting that allows you to print up to 100% coverage, including printing on the side gussets. This type of printing is done before the bag is made and has a higher minimum. A description of each is listed below. For assistance in determining the best print option for you, please call our service department at 1 877 648 6917, or email

Hot-Stamping is a process which transfers your image on to the bags
using a foil (either metallic, gloss or matte) using heat and pressure. There are a couple of benefits to using hot stamp printing, one is the luxurious finish of the metallic foil options. These metallic options can easily change the perceived value of a natural kraft bag which is value priced to be that of a high end product. The shine of the metallic also makes people give the bag a "second-look". Another benefit, is that, unlike ink, the foil colors, whether they are metallic, gloss or matte, print solid images. In other words, hot stamp foils lay down on top of the bag surface opaque. Whereas, ink will absorb onto paper surfaces and the color intensity is not as rich.

Ink Printing is a very cost-effective way to brand on your bags.
Results vary depending on the material on which the ink is over-printed. Unlike hot-stamping foils, which lay down on the printed material solid, true representation of the pantone ink color can only be achieved when printing on white bags. When printing on kraft bags the ink color, particularly lighter colors, will alter as a result of combining with the darker background of the kraft. We always recommend using dark inks on lighter background options for the best results. If a color combination is not suitable, we will advise.

Multi Colored Ink Printing, 100% graphic coverage, including printing in the side gussets is available by quotation. This type of printing is done on the bag paper first, and then the bag is converted. The minimum is 5000 bags per size.
