I have posted here a couple times and but mostly I just lurk and do research. For all of the help you've all given me without even knowing, thanks!
My question is in reference to where folks pick up bags/labels for coffee. I am working on starting my own small time roasting business and I am having trouble figuring out how a certain look is achieved. I want to stick with the plain kraft paper bags but I see that a lot of places make it look like their bags are printed directly on them.
Is there a website where you can order bags and put in a design and they will print them for you? I found some that do the plastic type bags but nothing for the kraft paper bags. Any insights of advice would be very appreciated :D

Join the SCAA, www.scaa.org . Go to the conference in Boston (or CoffeeFest in NY in March.) There'll be a zillion booths with bags, sealing machinery, labels and label printers etc. Pacific Bag and North Atlantic Specialty Bag are just 2 straight from the 2012 SCAA directory.
All the major roasting equipment and green coffee suppliers are there as well.
+1 Foir are best and will draw more attention. There are lot's of sites that offer all types of bags but you must buy in bulk (1,000-10,000) to save some cash. I plan to start a cafe in the near future and roasting will be part of it.
Click Here For example if you check out the "tin tie" bags. if you by 3+ 1,000 packs of the 1/2 lb bags they only cost 8 cents.
