Needless to say, I was left with 96 paper bags and nothing to do with them.I wondered if I could print on the lunch bag. Turns out, you can!!! I will share how I did it here for my fun loving friends ;)
If you have your own little business, this is a great, cheap (.02 cents apiece!) and easy way to make your mark. If you want to make custom birthday party bags, memorable lunch bags, etc. this is a really fun way to do it. You can also create custom wrapping paper for smallish gifts. So rad (trying to use other adjectives than great)!
I used Microsoft publisher to make mine.
Here are the steps.
1. Create a new document
2. Under page setup, select "Custom"
3. Under measurements, put in 5.2 Wide by 10.2 Tall
4. You'll have blank page to work with.
5. Put a text box or image on the document-whatever you want!
6. Rotate the items so that they appear upside down. I'm assuming you know how to do this. If not, let me know!
7. Print-The printer doesn't automatically know that to print your document 5.2 x 10.2 so the first time, you have to set up a custom paper size.
- When you click "Print" there will be a box that says, "Properties". Click it.
- Click the "Features" tab
- Click on "Paper Type"
- Click on "Custom" and enter the dimensions (5.2x10.2). Rename the custom print, "paper bag". Hit OK and you're all set. Next time, you'll just have to go to paper size and select "paper bag".
- Place the paper bag with the flap on top going into the printer first (see my uber-professional pic below) and hit PRINT!
