How to find good bags to package samples?

I think I’ve been told before, but I am blanking. Does anyone know where to find decent bags to send samples of various sizes from a one-cup sample bag to a larger sample bag? I’m talking about secure zip=lock bags. I had some of these sampler bags but ended up going through them rapidly.

I believe that somebody mentioned a source to me or I read about one here, but I cannot find it.

Please advise!

I use bags from Sorbent Systems. They mostly only sell in lots of 1000, but have specials where you can buy 100 of a specific color at any given time.

They also have sealers and other packaging stuff.


I usually use black, silver, or gold AA bags for small samples; the A and B sized bags are also reasonable depending on the tea and how much of it.

Please check Upton Imports! They sell these silver foiled ziploc bags and tins (of various sizes) relatively inexpensively.
