When a cookie table is a necessity, then cookie bags are too! We wanted to print our own designs in a cookie-bag-design-off, and these were what we ended up with. We purchased these 5" X 7.5" kraft paper bags, drew up some silly nonsense in Adobe Illustrator, then went wild ;)
How To Use a Home Printer to Print Onto Kraft Paper Bags
The first step really is to figure out what your printer needs in order to feed the bag through properly. Putting the bottom in first did not work (see below). Putting the top in first yielded ink splotches. So we ended up trimming the uneven top of the bags then feeding the top in first and our lil' inkjet was alright with that. Occasionally a small issue here or there, but nothing anyone will notice in a batch of ~100!
