CHALLENGING

THE STATUS-QUO

IN DOMESTIC

PAPER BAGS

 

With innovation on the rise in today’s marketplace, it’s time for retail packaging to catch up and finally reinvent itself. The fact is, the retail bag has not been updated in over 40 years. APB exists to bring packaging into the 21st century by offering faster, more efficient production with a better variety of customizable options. Best of all, our factories are located in the USA, which means more jobs, protection of intellectual property, less carbon emissions, and guaranteed ethical sourcing.
