Shrink Bags in Dome & Square
The Minimum Order for the Products on this Page is $75.00
Thomas Catanese & Co. Pioneered Shrink Bag Packaging in 1967

Back in 1967, all gift basket companies used cellophane to wrap their baskets plus miles of cellophane tape to hold that together. Today, the professional designer uses shrink film to insure that their gifts will arrive at the customers door just the way they designed it!

Shrink Bags will shrink 50% in width and length, to hold the product in place. Shrink bags should never be stored in temperatures over 90 degrees for extended periods or they will begin to shrink.

All of our bags meet FDA regulations for food contact.

Shrink Bag Tips & Technique
Shrink bags can be used in several different ways:
Bag over Basket
Place the bag over the basket. Pull it down and tuck the excess film under the basket. Secure the film to itself with tape, or seal with a heat sealer. Shrink the bag using a heat gun.
Basket in Bag
Open bag and place basket inside. Pull bag up over basket and tape or seal top. You can flare excess film at top and shield with cardboard while shrinking. This gives a dramatic look to the basket. Tie a bow around the base of the flare
Bag on Side
You can slip the basket into the bag from the side, and close the bag at the back of the basket. This hides the closure when the basket is viewed for the front.

Shrink Bag Sizing Formula, Quick and Easy

Using a flexible fabric measuring tape, measure your height dimension and add 10%. Measure the width or depth and add 10%. This 10% will give you the extra play for ease of insertion. To find out if your product will fit into a shrink bag, follow these instructions:
  1. Measure your Gift.
  2. Height - Front, Bottom, Back + 10%; Divide by 2 = Bag Height
  3. Width - Front, Sides and Back + 10%; Divide by 2 = Bag Width
  4. Example: Total Height = 40" + 10% (4") = 44"; Divide by 2 = 22" Height Bag
  5. Example: Total Width = 47" + 10% (5") = 52"; Divide by 2 = 26" Width Bag
  6. You need a 22" height x 26" width bag.
