Decorated cookie packaging???

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Got a question for those of you who frequently sell decorated cookies!

I will soon be making decorated sugar cookies & rolled chocolate cookies. I want to place them in individual bags that will be tied with a pretty ribbon.

My question is: should I order flat or gusseted bags? Which work best?!

Thanks!!

I use the gusseted bags..that way if the cookie is wide or oversized..it still fits!!!

Thanks for the input! I've been having trouble deciding which type of bags to order.

good question. i use the other ones, not flat ones. anyway i buy mine at hobby lobby and i get 36 for $1.99 thats the only place that i have found near me that sells the size i need. anyway, the cookie sits on the bottom nicely and i tie the bag closed with curly ribbon....and since there is air in the bags, i can stack cookies with out squishing them.
hope this helps

Where abouts in Hobby Lobby do you find them? By the candy making supplies?

Before I place an order, just thought I'd see if anyone else has input/ideas?

As always....thanks a bunch! icon_biggrin.gif

Hi, I actually use the flat ones. The reason is that I find there is too much excess bag that takes away from the viewing of the cookie. The flat ones seem to work well for all of my cookies and mine are on the thivk side (between 1/4-1/2 inch). I get my bags from sugarcraft...and as a side I also use shrink bags (you can still tie with a bow, and it gives a really nice finished look. I buy those form ebay...a seller called durapak.

Hope that helps. Julia

I use the gusseted variety. I like that the excess bag acts as a bit of "padding" between each cookie when I have to pack them in boxes. I also think the bow is easier to tie on each one with gusseted, especially when it's a one-person job! icon_lol.gif

I buy mine in bulk in 3 sizes from Retail Bag, a packaging company in Toronto. They are $7-$11 for 100, but I charge 50 cents per cookie to offset the cost of the bag + ribbon. thumbs_up.gif

I buy the flat ones, and fold over the top and put an occasion appropriate sticker on them. I don't stack them I stand them on end in a rows in a cake box. Hope this helps.

Oh, I forgot to add...the best way to pack the cookies (to transport to weddings, or for big orders) is to use the accordian/sizzle cushioning paper on the bottom of simple file folder "banker's boxes" you can pick up at any business supply store.

You can fit 3 rows of 13 or 14 cookies nicely, upright in a box! thumbs_up.gif

I use the gusseted bags this way the cookies have some space to breath LOL... I use Alice Cookie icing and it does not dry as hard as royal so I can't afford to have my cookies squeezed in to the bags.

The baggies I used for my Rosebud and Sunflower cookies are actually spice bags that you find @ bulk food places. And they were way cheap too.

Here's the link that shows the packaged cookies.

That is a great idea kiddo. Hhmn, you know I don't think I saw that picture or you cropped and changed it, maybe all I saw was one cookie, not the whole bunch. Anyway, that is gorgeous kiddo, really perfect, don't know how I missed that! Love it!
