|How thick is 2 Mil.
2 Mil. = 50.8 Microns = .0508 Millimeters = 1/500 inch = .002 inches. The standard household
Ziploc® sandwich bag is 1.5 Mil. The heavier freezer bags sold in stores are
generally 3 Mil. 2 Mil. is the standard industrial strength thickness.
is 4 Mil.
4 Mil. = 101.6 Microns = .1016 Millimeters = 1/250 inch = .004 inches. 4 Mil bags are twice as
thick as the 2 Mil. bags and considered heavyweight.
On the product listing pages the first number (W) is the width of the bag, the
second number (H) is the height. The width measures the size of the bag's opening.
The height is the distance from the zipper to the bottom of the bag. In other
words, the dimensions are approximately equal to the inside dimensions. A 3"x4"
piece of paper would just fit inside a 3"x4" zip bag.
accurate is sizing?
The size allowance for the zip bags is +/- 1/8 inch.
|Are prices per 100 or per 1000 bags?

|Can I order heavier bags?
Yes. Customzip.com occasionally fulfills orders for 6 Mil. zip bags. However,
typically the next step beyond 4 Mil. is to move to vinyl bags.
do you not carry bags less than 2 Mil.?
2 Mil. is the considered the minimum size for which the zipper can be molded as
one piece with the bag. For zip bags less than 2 Mil. the zipper must be laminated
on -this results in a noticeable loss of strength.
