Bagmasters Is Your Premier Manufacturer and Distributor of Wicketed Bags

Designed to increase production packaging speeds (as compared to flat poly bags), wicketed bags can be used with a bag opener or drop sealer, as well as manually.

Wicketed bags are manufactured using a lip in which 2 holes and a metal wicket secure the top of the bags together. This unique design creates a pre-opened bag that, when filled, can be torn away, leaving the next bag ready for filling. You don’t have to waste valuable time selecting a bag from a box, then try to find the opening in order to fill it.
