Why Brown Bag?

  • Plan Bag Specialists

    While larger suppliers must oversee thousands of different products, we’re able to concentrate on one — blueprint shipping and mailing bags. And that’s the way it’s been for almost 45 years.

  • Our Double Guarantee

    We’re relentlessly committed to providing you great savings and a memorable shopping experience. That’s why we guarantee the lowest prices and unconditional satisfaction — or your money back, no questions asked.

  • Double-Walled Dependability

    Our bags are carefully constructed using two layers of heavy-duty American natural kraft paper. The layers are sewn together on the closed end of the bag, and the open end can be fastened shut with staples or tape.

  • Paper vs Plastic

    Paper bags are biodegradable, nontoxic and made from natural, renewable resources. Plastic bags are made from synthetic, toxic chemicals that cause cancer — and take a thousand years to degrade. It’s a no-brainer.

  • Paper vs Tubes

    In addition to costing almost 75% less than mailing tubes, paper blueprint mailing bags are cheaper to mail and easier to store. Our bags can be stacked flat and divided into piles; bulky mailing tubes present difficult storage challenges.

  • Finger-Friendly Design

    To help reduce paper cuts, our bags feature a sawtooth-shaped trim. The softer edge reduces shear on the bag’s open end. We call it “cutting-edge technology”.
