Our speciality ProFab® geological sample bags are made of high stitch count calico, equipped with a naturally polished drawstring. They are printed with a water-resistant, and insect- and mildew-proof sequential printed number on the front, in your specified alphanumeric configuration. Then we supply the barcode tag, which is resistant to weather, heat, tear and water, and can be printed in any barcode format to suit your specific system. This is either stapled or sown into the bag seam, and corresponds with the printed number on the front.
Barcode Specifications - We customise to suit you!
- Our customers usually find that a standard 75mmH x 80mmW barcode ticket works for them. However any reasonable size barcode can be produced; just specify what you need.
- If your requirement is time-bound, we can staple the barcodes to the seam of the bag using heavy-duty stainless steel staples. If timing is not critical, we can sew the barcodes into the seam of the bags in our overseas manufacturing plant and pack them into our containers of stock. Lead times are typically 4-6 months, dependent on the time of year, but if you'd like to have bulk stock produced for your forward planned programs this is possible. For example, customers have ordered the upcoming year's requirements in July or August and get them in January of the following year, with enough stock to cover them for the year.
- If you prefer to clearly see the printed numbers, the standard print size we offer is a large 45mm high print.
"I would like to thank you and your team for the continuous support your company has provided us. Since converting to the calico bags, we have not had any issues. The bags are holding up to the conditions we encounter here in the tropics, and we are finding them durable during transport to the lab. The barcode system and ticketing system we have developed over time suit our operation requirements. The lab has also reported success with the quality of the new bags. The tickets, barcode and bag printing have all been standing up to this seasons' drilling program."

The Challenge: To provide a sequentially printed calico bag, with a corresponding ticket stapled into the seam and a 'cheque book' style ticket book with all the specific sample details left inside the book for record-keeping.
The Result: Achieved entire scope, with a 50-leaf ticket book inserted into the box for ease of use in the field.
