Colquhoun's can now import Laminated Woven Polypropylene bags with an exceptionally high quality print. As you can see we can use many more colours than conventional printing as well as improving registration and definition.
We can import bags with what we are calling union fabrics. These are bags which have material made from a combination of 2 or more materials.
The material could be Woven PP, Paper, Extruded films, Polyethylene, PVC, BOPP (Biaxially Orientated Polypropylene).
