Nowadays there are billions of different designs for every product we use, and sometimes it is hard to be different than everyone else. When we go to a store, and we want to buy a chip bag, we realize that hundreds and even thousands of people can easily access the same product design we do. Being unique seems to be difficult when everything is made in bulk. Because of this, we need to take things one step further and try to personalize the items on our own.
In this 2023 DIY guide we are going to give you some information on how you can easily make a chip bag that is one hundred percent unique. Doing this will not take you a lot of time, and some of these products can be easily made with your family. The next time you have a weekend off and when you want to have some quality bonding time with your children or friends, you can sit down and make some carriers that no one else in the world has.
Use your computer skills
Since there are a lot of different ways you can customize your favorite product, we are going to give you several ideas on what you can do to create the perfect bag and use it for many different purposes.
The first thing we are going to talk about is the designs you can create using your computer and some basic design skills. You don’t have to know a complex software to do this on your own, and the only thing you are going to need is Paint and possibly MS Word.
Start by creating the outlines and think about the size you want to get. You can easily just draw a rectangle that you are going to divide into three sections. The middle one is going to be the biggest, as that is the front of the container. The side sections should be smaller, and keep them the same size. As you can imagine, those are the sides of the bag. You can use the middle section for the front and the back of the bag or you can just print another piece that is going to be used as the back of the product.
When it comes to design, you can be as creative as you want. You can use pictures of you and your loved ones, or you can just draw something. Use emoticons or emojis to make the product even better, or just download images in .png format that you can use for any of the sides.
You can print this on your own, using a plastic paper that you can, later on, connect using your iron, or just saw it. Think about the material used for printing, and if needed, contact a company that will help you out with the product on its own.
Contact a company
The next thing you can do is going to save you a lot of time, plus you will know that you will get a professional item made just for you. According to HiBags, when it comes to the custom stand up chip bags, you can get as creative as you want, and the end product will be done perfectly.
Most people who are part of the production industry need customized chip bags that they can use to store and sell their products. When it comes to this, you won’t be able to play around with just one product and spend hours and hours to get just one bag. You will need to print things out in bulk, and unless you have all the needed equipment this is going to be difficult.
Your best bet is to contact a professional company that will be able to get things done right and deliver your products on time. When it comes to the design, you can still get as creative as you want to be and have a special and unique look to your products.
Depending on the company you choose to go with, you can talk to them about them creating the look of your product, or you can sit down with your designers, create the design and the overall image of the containers and send the finished look to the company that is going to create the bags. If you decide to do this, make sure everything is done in high-quality resolution, so the image doesn’t get messed up during the editing process. Talk to the company about the right dimensions and preferred format.
Reuse old bags
Now let’s go back to the small scale. This is not the option you want to choose if you have a big factory and if you want to create products in bulk. This is the option for those who want to spend some time bonding with their family, and for those who want to create just one or two chip bags per day.
If you want to create one special product to give as a present to someone you care about, or if you want to make something for yourself only, then you can easily recycle and reuse old chip containers. You can also use candy wrappers or anything else that you may like.
Create an outline and think about the dimensions. Then you want to get a plastic wrapper that will get locked in place when you put heat on it. Cut the old products, and create a special design on the plastic sheet. Once you are happy with the look, you will need to put another plastic sheet on top of the wrappers and press everything using an iron. Make sure you wear protective gear and you don’t get burnt. Test things out, see how everything looks, and once you are done creating the front, back, and the sides, you just need to connect everything together by sawing them or by using the heat from the iron.
These are some of the things you can do to create a unique product. Some of these can be used to create products and carriers in bulk, and others are just for small DIY projects. Think about the purpose of the product and how many people you want to use it. If needed, talk to a professional about the final look, and don’t forget to consider different materials and colors if you want to create something that will be loved by many.
