Plastic Bags For Customer Racquets
When purchasing a new racquet, I've always liked getting my racquets in the plastic bag with the rubber band around the handle. I've seen this done when racquests are restrung as well. Since I've always strung my own racquets, I've obviously never done this but was wondering if people do this for their customers and what the feedback has been.
I browsed online and saw some ridiculous prices for plastic bags ($10 for 12 bags, for example) and would also like to find some cheaper alternatives. I'm sure I'd have to order in bulk but that wouldn't be a problem if the cost per bag is worth the higher upfront cost. Also, if others have had positive feedback from doing this.
Also, where would people recommend purchasing the bags from? Uline? And what size... I think I read 36x16, but wanted to get some additional insight on this.
Sorry for rambling... in between meetings and wanted to put my thoughts out there. Thanks in advance everyone!

Also, I apologize if people are questioning why I put this in the strinigng machine/technique section. I thought that people who are visiting this section are usually either accomplished stringers who are familiar with the industry or individuals who could benefit from insight on this topic. If this is the wrong section, can a Moderator move this thread?

Search, search, search. This is asked very often.

My apologies. I should have prefaced in my original post. I did try searching under bags and then plastic bags. Unfortunately when I did, the results were quite varied and not quite what I was looking for.
^ how I searched the last time.

Perfect. Thank you very much for your help. I don't know why I came back with such odd results but that is exactly what I'm looking for.

Thanks again!

I find them annoying.. You have to throw them away, they have no use for anything except helping populate the plastic bag population. Do yourself and everyone a favor.. forget the bags.

I used to do that, but then found out, people just took their racquet right out and you were left with a used crinkled bag.

yea i am not a big fan of doing them unless its gut.

the way i use them is whenever new frames come in i keep the poly bags to use for my own use. i generally use each bag about 1-2month before they get too dirty.

I would find it a nuisance to have a stringer bag my racquet and I would feel bad about contributing to pollution.

Perhaps I would just hand the damn thing back to him.
