Hello there!

I have posted here a couple times and but mostly I just lurk and do research.  For all of the help you've all given me without even knowing, thanks!

My question is in reference to where folks pick up bags/labels for coffee.  I am working on starting my own small time roasting business and I am having trouble figuring out how a certain look is achieved.  I want to stick with the plain kraft paper bags but I see that a lot of places make it look like their bags are printed directly on them.

Example: Click Here (2.bp.blogspot.com)

Is there a website where you can order bags and put in a design and they will print them for you? I found some that do the plastic type bags but nothing for the kraft paper bags.  Any insights of advice would be very appreciated :D

Join the SCAA, www.scaa.org . Go to the conference in Boston (or CoffeeFest in NY in March.) There'll be a zillion booths with bags, sealing machinery, labels and label printers etc. Pacific Bag and North Atlantic Specialty Bag are just 2 straight from the 2012 SCAA directory.

All the major roasting equipment and green coffee suppliers are there as well.

The best way to keep roasted coffee beans fresh are foil bags with a one-way-valve!

+1 Foir are best and will draw more attention.  There are lot's of sites that offer all types of bags but you must buy in bulk (1,000-10,000) to save some cash.  I plan to start a cafe in the near future and roasting will be part of it.  

Click Here
For example if you check out the "tin tie" bags. if you by 3+ 1,000 packs of the 1/2 lb bags they only cost 8 cents.  

Happy Roasting!  

BTW which roaster are you using?

Why not just use a rubber stamp with your custom design?
