Does ABV Packaging put their company name on their zipper heads?
Never, in fact we think that’s not in good taste. These companies should be paying you to advertise their brand. They are using your bags to advertise their company. If you would like your name or logo on the zippers, ABV can arrange this on all custom orders for a small setup charge. When you see their logo plastered on their large zipper pull you’ll understand why we don’t do this. After all it’s your products your selling not theirs.
