Unless you’re into turning your customers away holding everything in their arms, your shop probably already offers bags. However, you might not carry counter bags. These simple little products are basically paper wallets that can be branded on both sides – you’ll usually see them used to package smaller, lighter items, such as postcards.

Here are just four reasons why your shop should start stocking counter bags.

  1. They’re 100% Recyclable

Firstly, counter bags are a good choice for the environment. Since they don’t need to take much weight, a counter bag can be made from a relatively thin layer of paper. As such, they can be 100% recyclable and biodegradable, as well as made from an entirely natural material. Even if you already using eco-friendly paper bags, it makes sense to have a smaller alternative – why waste resources by giving customers more bag than they need?

  1. They Save On Space

Counter bags are very small and lie flat, so they don’t take up much space. Even if you order thousands at a time, you won’t find it very hard to find room for them all. They also take up a small amount of room when out on your counter, so you can quickly and easily grab one for each customer.

  1. They Offer a Great Opportunity for Branding

As a business owner, you should never pass up the opportunity for branding. If your shop is already giving away bags, it only makes sense to brand those bags with your business name and/or colours. It presents a better impression of your business and advertises your shop to anyone else who sees the bag. Counter bags represent an easy way to enjoy those benefits even when a customer buys something too small for a standard bag.

  1. They’re Extremely Affordable

Finally, counter bags are very affordable, even if you don’t have a huge budget to play around with. You get all the benefits listed above without having to break the bank.
