Customized plastic bags, why is the MOQ so high?

Customers who are packaging bags for the first time, or customers who try to make customized packaging, will encounter a problem when asking packaging bag manufacturers. The MOQ of packaging bags is generally very high. Considering the risk control factor, many customers are Unacceptable, I hope the first batch of small-scale customization, so that the pressure on the customer side is also less. However, there is a reason for the high MOQ of packaging bags. The following will explain the high MOQ of plastic packaging bags and calculate the approximate MOQ. Food bags, food packaging bags 1. Existing technical bottlenecks 1. The existing plastic packaging bag printing process adopts gravure printing, and the advantage of gravure printing is that the color registration is accurate, the printing is clear, and the printed bags are very beautiful! The most obvious disadvantage is that there is a printing fee. A good version is about 400~600 per color, which is calculated according to the design color, bag type and other parameters. For example, if you want to print a bag with a real sample, the printing fee is about 2400~3600 if it is calculated by 6 pieces. The cost of the bag is only a few cents or even a few cents. If you make thousands of bags, I am afraid the cost of the printing fee is higher than the cost of the bag. Counting the loss of frequent plate changing, downtime, labor, etc., there is no one. The manufacturer is acceptable. Therefore, the longer you use a customized version, the more cost-effective it is, and the more you do, the more you can save money. 2. Then some customers will ask if there is no version? There is also digital printing on the market now, but the current technology is not very mature and is not suitable for mass production. Second, the problem of loss 1. The printing machines used by our packaging bag manufacturers are high-speed printing machines, which can print about 200 meters in one minute. If the amount of printing is not enough, a roll of material is not finished, including frequent plate changes and pressing shafts. A series of processes such as changing ink, color matching and proofing takes about 3 hours, and the loss rate is very large, which may reach more than 50%, which is unacceptable to any packaging factory. 3. Shelf life of raw materials 1. In order to ensure the quality of the packaging bags, all the raw materials we use are pre-ordered. If a roll of material is not used up, the remaining material may be scrapped. Fourth, how to calculate the MOQ 1. The size of the bag is the key factor affecting the MOQ. The smaller the size, the higher the MOQ, and vice versa. Calculated based on a roll of 6000 meters; for example, a stand-up bag with a size of 18*25, the MOQ=6000/18≈30,000. 2. 10*10 three-side sealing bag, because the size of the bag is relatively small, the printed copper plates should be arranged in two rows, then the MOQ=(6000/10)*2≈120,000 pieces, including the loss, the MOQ Actually not high. 5. What should be paid attention to in the early stage of customization Because the MOQ is large, many customers are worried about the quality of the bags, so when choosing a packaging bag manufacturer, it depends on its production scale and the printing quality of the sample bags.
