Ziplock Bags - perfect for small items

Ziplock Bags are plain LDPE poly bags with a press seal closure. They are commonly used to display or store products including large quantities of small items like nuts and bolts which need to be accessed repeatedly.

Ziplock Bags are also known as resealable bags, zip seal bags, clickseal bags, presseal bags or self-seal bags. “Zipper bags with and without handles” are the easiest bags to open/close and are also the most presentable. However due to the quantities the others are sold in, they’re all much more economical.

What else can you use resealable bags for?
