    I'm looking for a clear, thin newspaper-type bag to put my flyers in.

    The flyers are 3 printed on an 8.5x11 sheet then cut into thirds, so approx what I'm looking for is a 9"x4" bag. One with a doorknob hangar hole in the top would be ideal.

    I can't seem to find any of these at my office supply stores in town. Anyone know where I might find them, either online or elsewhere?

    Thanks.

    If you call the local paper's editor i'm sure he could put you in touch with their supplier or sell some to you.

    I bought some from my local newspaper about 2 years ago. I don't remember the exact price but it seems like it was $30 for 2000 bags...1.5 cents each.

    Eeek!;) The ones I got from the local newspaper where like the high density t-shirt bags from veripack except they were clear. They are the same thing they stuff newspapers in to keep them from getting wet. To get 2000 from veripack would cost me $96 shipped.

    I got mine for less than 1/3 of that. I'd call around first.

    You didn't look at the right bag then. They have the bags that newspapers are put in....I think it was 3000 for $30....something like that.
