VacUpack 4 mil bags!

The VacUpack 4 mil pre-cut bags are now available.

These bags come in 3 sizes:

6"x10" 8"x12" or 10"x15"

The VacUpack bag material in both rolls and the new pre-cut bag is an innovative way of thinking green with current manufacturing abilities, inspired by a growing trend of consumers who care about truly saving money and making less impact on Earth and global warming.

The VacUpack bag material is thicker, stronger and has more nylon fiber than any other bag on the market today. This idea of going with better quality is a way of giving customers deep price breaks with re-usability, and durability and aim toward a greener out look dealing with plastics.

Other bag manufactures are all competing for cheaper thinner less expensive bag materials. The result is hundreds and thousands of bags used only one time and most time not being adequate for the job intended.

Professional Marketing Group Inc. stands alone in offering quality and durability rather than disposable. If a bag material is only good for a single use or breaks open in a freezer resulting in loss of products are you ahead or behind? The few pennies one saved buying the cheapest thinnest bags on the market, will result in hundreds of dollars in loss of products and repetitive bag purchases? In our research we have found the cheaper thinner bags are far more expensive to the consumer and much more profitable to the manufacture with frequent repeat business. Customers have been duped into believing that a cheap price is a less expensive option. This is a false sense of savings!

Professional Marketing Group Inc. believes in going "Green for our Environment". Although a viable technology has not been developed to replace plastic bags for vacuum packing at this time. When one thinks green it has a domino effect all the way down the line with the results being better products and quality.

Thinking green! We can all lessening the amount of plastic in disposal sites. Manufacturing a product for durability and re usability is much less expensive and far less polluting in the long term! The savings and environmental green thinking are seen in many area's.

1) Less product in dump sites. Quality products are used many times not just once! Less buying less disposal.

2)Less manufacturing of products equals less manufacturing pollutants.

Working to lessen the manufacturing turns the thinking towards offering the best product for the customers intended use.

3) Quality is utmost of importance!

To slow down the current trend of fast use disposable products manufactures must replace products with top quality products that will last.
Environment green thinking gives the customer true savings and better use of the money spent. A win win for everyone!

We can all limit the amount of waste and trash we put into the Environment. Manufacturing a better quality vacuum pack bag resulting in less waste of the precious food products, less air pollutants and much less plastic being disposed of. In the long term buying quality is much less expensive and less damaging to our Eco system and budgets.

Example: 100 bags of the thin 2.5 or 3 mil bags will be used for 100 items and then disposed of. Our test results show some bags will work fine but there will be a loss of 25% to 50% in the freezer. This is a 50% use rate doubling the price of the "inexpensive" thin bags.

Example #2: 100 bags of the VacUpack 4 mil bag. These bags will be used for 100 items with only a 5% loss in the freezer. The next 95 bags will be opened and reused again. This just made these bags almost 50% less expensive. It is not uncommon for these same bags to be used 3-5 times using up all the bag material inches at a time. The better quality bag just became far less expensive than the supposed cheap bag.

How do you know if you are buying a cheap thin bag? There is a test you can do! You can see it demonstrated in the video at

Tear test!

Cut a small slit in the side seam of a bag material. Tear it across the width of the bag. You will see some bags tear with little to no resistance while others are a little better. The VacUpack bag is hard to tear. The nylon fiber in the bag gives it resistant and strength. Making a bag less expensive the manufactures have removed a large percentage of nylon and replaced with high poly content. This results in a bag that punctures easily is less durable and is prone to become brittle in the freezer. When the high poly bags are frozen microscopic holes appear allowing air to enter in the bag and thus results in freezer burn and loss of products.

Join with us in taking steps to protect our environment, and save money. All while using the very best products on the market today.

Vacuum Packing Berries!

The Season is Here!

Berry season that is! Aug of 2008 we are all busy with the seasons bounty of fruit and vegetables.

A tip for freezing berries! If we plan to make jam and are just out of time for the moment. We will wash and place berries any type in a vacuum sealing bag, then evacuate the air, place in the freezer. This is a very simple quick freeze. The fruit is ready to pull out at a later date to make jam, pies, compotes or other wonderful items.

Decorative Frozen Berries! If we want the berries to be individual and stay looking like a berry not a colored mush ball! Wash berries like strawberries or blue berries that are firm fruits. Black berries or raspberries one must carefully wash as to not squish the item. After cleaning we place each berry individually on a cookie sheet without touching each other. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least 3 hours until frozen hard. Then remove, place carefully in a vacuum seal bag and evacuate the air. Replace back in the freeze as soon as possible. Do not let berries defrost! When you want to have berries in smoothies, on cereal or any decorative item the berries will come out of the bag individually and pristine condition with no freezer burn or ice crystals.

Good luck with your berries and remember keep them sucked up tight! Thanks for reading PMG
