bag for life factoryBag for Life was established in 1992 by the current Directors of Oversolve Ltd. Steven Thornhill & Ian Brinkler as manufacturers of quality bags for life. They saw a hole in the market for a company that could offer customers a quick turnaround paired with quality and competitively priced carrier bags.

From its humble beginnings back in 1992, Oversolve has gone from strength to strength investing in both machinery and its people. Oversolve currently employs 35 staff and has invested over £3m in plant and machinery to produce the finest quality carrier bags and products.

From this equipment and people investment, Oversolve is now capable of producing over 2 million printed carrier bags, including patch handle, variguage carrier bags, flexiloop handle carrier bags, drawtape and punched out handled carrier bags per week. With our wide range of machinery we are ale to print from single colour up to 8 colours onto the required carrier bag. We can even set runs up of just 1000 pieces.


Our quick service is a key point for Oversolve and we aim to turn around orders at almost break-neck speeds. This enables our clients to have greater stock control and confidence that deadlines are met in good time.

Over the years, Oversolve has also developed strong trading links with other factories world wide enabling us to offer existing and new clients other types of bags; Paper Laminated bags with cord handles (luxury) Paper kraft carriers with either paper tape or twist handles as well as many versions of eco friendly bags including cotton and Jute bags. A recent addition to our range; the cotton bag and Jute bag are now printed on site with speedy turn round and a minimum order of just 100 pieces can be ordered .
