20 x 30 cm. Keeping your Soap dry and ready for gifting or selling can prove challenging! Our shrink bags can help you hygienically protect your soap from Fragrance loss and seal it safe from “sweating” if it is Melt & Pour Soap.
Our Shrink Bags are open on one side, so you can easily slide in your soap bar, or other bath Products, heat seal the opening, and then shrink with a Heat Gun.
Your soap can then be labelled and stored in pristine condition.
This size bag is suitable for packs of Soaps, Gift Packs and Sets as well as wedges of "Cakes of Soap" which are quite difficult to wrap (trim into a triangle shape around your bar before sealing and shrinking unless your impulse sealer has a hot wire cutter). Also suitable for samples, packs of Malibu Tubes, household goods such as CD’s, DVD’s, Books, mounted photographs etc, re-sealing dry goods etc
Our bags are made of high clarity PVC shrink film which shrinks up to 40% at 120 ° C
Shrink Bags are simple to use.
1. Place the Soap into the bag
2. Seal the opening with a Bag or Impulse Sealer
3. Use a Heat Gun to shrink the wrap moving constantly around the sides of the soap
Small Impulse Sealers (Hand orHeat Sealers) can be purchased really economically from a craft store or more sturdy models from your local Bag Sealing & Packaging Equipment Company or Online. (Check the Yellow Pages in your State)
Heat Guns are available from a hardware store (used for paint stripping) or scrap booking stores have them for embossing.
(Hair dryers really don’t have enough grunt for bag shrinking for very long)
Some crafters tape the open side of the bag to close, but this can cause uneven shrinking and leave a gaping hole, although it can be successful, particularly on larger items.
You’ll be amazed how handy a bag sealer is for the kitchen - sealing open packets of breads, frozen veggies and pantry items to keep them fresh longer and keep out the moths!
