© Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson

Remember good ole Calvin and Hobbes on the newspaper comics page? The two mischief-makers had a habit of taking normal games and inventing their own rules. A game of “Calvinball” was likely to include a bazillion bases (including a secret one), a “no song zone,” or water balloons. Even a croquet wicket was liable to be repurposed when a Calvinball game started up.

The only rule of Calvinball? Keep changing the game.

Well, we really dig Calvinball.

The packaging industry’s wickets aren’t quite as exciting as the ones in croquet-turned-Calvinball, but they’re still a critical part of the game. Wicketed bags hold individually cut bags bound together by a wire wicket. Folks in the food packing business or clothing business need them all the time.

They’re also one of the fastest-growing areas of custom requests from our customers. In fact, over half of wicketed bag orders also requested custom printing. The technical term for that is A BIG DEAL. 

Until recently, getting your hands on pricing and availability for custom or printed wicketed bags was next to impossible. It required multiple phone calls, technical drawings on napkins, and multiple days to confirm specs and artwork. You told us the process was a pain and we had to agree. Getting a price and lead time for even the most highly customized bags with multi-colored images became a cinch. All that lag time disappeared. Now, instead of having to do your own sourcing, you can get the same experience, same service, and same guarantees that you expect from NFC Bags.
