Am I eligible for a quote?
Fischer Paper can sell only to entities that are licensed for tax-exempt purchases for resale only. Qualifying entities include distributors, limited service restaurants, convenience stores and food manufacturers.
How do I determine a quantity?
To determine the quantity of product you’d like quote, first estimate how much product you’ll use over the next 12 months. Next, consider your inventory storage capacity and ordering patterns. Do you have the space and budget? Our team can help you determine the right quantity for your needs, and integrate our standard lead times into your ordering schedule.

How do I outline product dimensions?
When describing a product’s dimensions, remember that width measures the bag from side to side. Side gusset measurements indicate how deep a bag is from top to bottom, when the gusset is fully extended. And length is measured from the bottom of the bag to the bottom of the bag’s lip.
- For gusseted bags, specify Width x Gusset x Length.
- For bags without a gusset, note Width x Length.
- For bags with a poly film panel, first define the width of the panel. Then indicate the location of the panel on the bag’s face (e.g., centered, offset, or straddling the bag’s edge and gusset).
Considering a uniquely-sized bag? Generally speaking, a branded version of a stock-size bag or wrap will be a more economical choice than a custom-sized product.
How do I indicate materials choices?
With so many high-performance materials to choose from, you may need the help of a Fischer sales support specialist to understand all your options. Begin by assessing your product performance needs and brand standards. Concerns like heat and moisture, stain resistance, storage or handling conditions and product presentation should all be fully considered.
Once you’ve determined your product goals and requirements, remember to include material specifics, including paper type, coatings, foil or poly lining, and basis weight. Specs for poly film products should include the polymer type and film gauge.
What, if any, printing specs are needed?
Fischer customizable products make it easy to add your logo and/or graphics to high-quality paper bags, wraps and more. While detailed information is required to create production-ready printing specifications, you may use the following general printing guidelines to determine the initial details of your printed paper product:
Bags: Spot color printing, up to 4 colors
Wraps: Spot color printing, up to 4 colors; Four-color process printing, conventional (lpi) or stochastic (microns)
Napkin bands: Spot color printing, up to 4 colors; Four-color process printing, conventional (lpi) or stochastic (microns)
*Print coverage is estimated in increments of 10%.
