Frequently Asked Question

I need to provide nutrition information or other text/logos on my poly bags. What should I do?

There are two ways you can achieve this:

  1. You can ask us to give you a quote for printed poly bags, with the nutritional information printed on the bag.
  2. Alternatively, you can organise to have stickers made with the nutritional panel on it.
Generally, it is far more cost effective to have the poly bags printed, than it is to buy the bags and manually apply the stickers.

Can I store my poly bags in a freezer?

Most of our poly bags can only be stored in a freezer temporarily, and it is difficult to give an exact time due to differences in thickness, material etc. To withstand freezer temperatures for a long period of time, poly bags need a special additive. At QIS we do sell ice bags that are made with this additive and hence suitable for freezing. If you are after a specific size of poly bag that needs to be frozen, call us on 1800 555 343 or fill out a custom manufacturing enquiry and we can do you up a quote.

Are your poly bags food grade?

All of our poly bags are safe for storing food, as they have been made from virgin polythene or virgin polypropylene material.

What's the deal with the plastic bag ban(s)? Which bags can I still buy?

All of the states and territories, with the exception of New South Wales and Victoria, have introduced bans retailers giving customers lightweight plastic shopping (checkout) bags, with Victoria set to introduce a ban in 2019. Our poly bags do not fall under this ban, as they are not used as checkout our shopping bags (with the exception of NWPP bags and Heavy Duty Plastic Carry Bags, which are much thicker than the minimum thickness and are obviously reusable).

The exact thickness varies slightly from state - in Queensland, ACT, Northern Territory, South Australia and Tasmania the ban applies to plastic shopping bags less than 35µm, while in Western Australia the ban applies to plastic shopping bags 35µm and under.

If you are looking for a replacement for single-use plastic checkout bags, we would recommend reusable or recyclable options such NWPP Bags, Heavy Duty Plastic Carry Bags, Paper Bags or Calico Bags. We also have a small range of 35µm plastic shopping bags available, however; we only recommend these bags as an interim solution. The legislation may change in the future to account for the 35µm bags. These bags are not compliant with the Western Australia ban, but currently fit within the laws for the rest of Australia.

In-depth explanation on poly bag categories

Wholesale Polypropylene bags: These ultra-clear plastic bags are great for displaying food or other products. They can also be heat sealed due to their high melt point.

Wholesale Polythene bags: Also known as polyethylene bags, these are made from a material called Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE). LDPE is more translucent (cloudy) than polypropylene, making it a fantastic choice if your goods are light sensitive.

Wholesale Plastic Food Pouches: Our plastic food pouches are made from laminated food grade polypropylene, making them super durable and allowing them to stand upright.

Wholesale BOPP Plastic Bags: Display your products in style with these ultra-clear bags, made from Biaxially-Oriented Polypropylene. Available in peel-and-seal and hang sell varieties.

Wholesale NWPP Bags: These bags are similar to the "green bags" you would have seen at Coles or Woolies, but ours come in nine different colours. The bags are made from a special type of plastic material called Non-Woven Polypropylene (NWPP) which makes them strong and reusable.

Wholesale Garbage Bin Liners: Buy bin liners for your office or store in bulk and save. Our bin liners are made from strong LDPE plastic so they won't break on you when you're taking the rubbish out.

Wholesale Courier Bags: Courier bags, made from co-extruded LDPE plastic, are a fantastic for mailing and/or eCommerce.

Wholesale Heavy Duty Plastic Carry Bags: Perfect for any retail store, our heavy duty plastic carry bags come in a huge range of sizes and are available in Low, Medium and High-Density Polythene.
