Our Process:


It all starts by allowing us to quote your packaging requirements. Through the discovery phase of quoting we try to understand the exact film properties needed for your packaging application. To get started just call 1-(626)350-5900 and one of our “Flexible Packaging Experts” will help you through the quoting process.

Resins and Additives

Polymers and additives are specified to meet the exact film properties for your packaging requirements. Major petrochemical companies like Exxon, Eastman, Dow, and Mobil manufacture polymers and delivered resin in pellet form via rail car, or tanker truck. Resin is stored in bulk storage silos and pumped to the extrusion area.

State of the art Extrusion

Production Diagram. Resins and additives are transformed under extreme heat and pressure in an extruder. The extruder screw pushes the liquefied resin into a blown film die, which introduces cool air and starts a film bubble. The film can be specified into exact thicknesses and sizes with computer and machine settings. As the film cools it is collected onto rolls of tubing or sheeting for off line printing and converting.

Custom Artwork and Custom Plate Making

Working with your electronic files or just a concept, our art / prepress department prepares the necessary art proofs to your satisfaction. Once you have approved the final art proofs, flexographic plates are produced for press.

Custom Flexographic Printing

Plates are mounted onto printing cylinders, which are loaded into state-of-the art Flexo presses. Printing from 1 to 6 colors is available. Detailed illustration.


Bag machines convert rolls of printed or plain poly film into the bag style/construction you require.

Custom Packaging

Depending on your requirements we can package your final product in various forms. Master packs, inner bags, boxed flat bags, bags on roll, folded bags, core-less rolls, bags on header pack, bags on wicket, etc.

Shipping and Delivery

We ship via common carriers LTL (less than container load), UPS, or locally via our trucks. We pass along our huge discounts or we can use the carrier of your choice. Expedited shipping is always available. Most custom orders ship within 4-6 weeks after approved artwork and signed acknowledgement. If you require an imported item, such as a custom printed zip lock style bag, the lead-time is usually 12-14 weeks. Of course we can accommodate expedited orders within reason.

Low Price Guarantee

We continually compare prices throughout the packaging industry, and we are confident that our poly bag prices are the best you will find. However, if by chance you find a lower price on a comparable product, please let us know. We will meet or beat any competitor’s price, guaranteed! Just e-mail, mail, or fax us a copy of the competitor’s page showing the item and price. Prices must appear in a national competitor’s current published catalog, sales flyer, or web site and must be accurate, not a printing error. Any prices from a web site must be from a legitimate “brick and mortar” company and not just a virtual store front. Item must be similar in size, thickness, quality, and quantities must be equal. Guarantee excludes discontinued and closeout items. International Plastics reserves the right to limit quantities.


Our goal is to not only win an order, but to help you and your business succeed. Your re-order is not taken for granted and we work hard to earn all of your plastic bag and packaging business.
