"Cello" stands for cellophane. Cellophane is fashioned out of reformed cellulose, a plant carbohydrate. This makes cello products originally created from natural raw materials. Designed for keeping moisture, oils, bacteria and air out of goods, cellophane's most commonly used form today is the cello bag. Although not patented worldwide, Cellophane is a trademark of Innovia Films Ltd., in the UK. This article will provide all the necessary information about cellophane bags.
What are cello bags used for?
Cellophane candy bags are one of the most popular uses for cello bags especially around Halloween. As some candies come individually wrapped (some are then, placed inside another cello bag), it is not uncommon for a candy manufacturer to use thousands of feet of clear cellophane bags within minutes. Another heavy use for cello bags is for food packaging bags like potato chips, crackers or for cookie bags. Many clothes companies use the material for t-shirt bags as well, although a number of companies use the cheaper CPP bags instead. Cello bags are even used for cigar packaging, since the cellophane material prevents moisture from making the cigar stale.
Cello bags versus CPP bags
Before you purchase cello bags, it is important to cover CPP poly bags. CPP stands for Cast Poly Propylene. These bags resemble cello, usually made in China, and can be found in your favourite retail store or online. CPP bags are not backed by the US Food and Drug Administration. Although, usually cheaper than actual cello bags, they are also more prone to moisture seepage, melting from hot temperatures and holes. There is further information regarding these CPP bags online at Ebay.com by searching for "Before you buy cello bags". Whatever you use your bags for, ensure that they are of high quality to make sure that your goods arrive in their intended form.
Where can I find clear cellophane bags
One of the top selling sites that offer them is Cellobags.com. If you are a manufacturer, you may want to specify what type of bags you will need first. Many bags can be ordered as self-sealing bags, or with twist ties at an additional cost. If you search for "cello" alone online, you'll find everything from foil-lined envelopes in cello, to Christmas cello bags, cellophane gift bags and even wedding cake bags for the bride and groom. Google or your preferred search engine will uncover many places to buy these clear cellophane bags.
