After shopping around for the best type of flexible packaging film, you have decided that biaxially oriented polypropylene film is the best material for packaging your products.

 

You have been looking around for pricing information for this particular type of packaging film, but you have not found the information you are looking for.

 

You want to understand how much BOPP film costs and what factors influence the pricing for this material.

 

After more than six decades in the packaging industry, Industrial Packaging has sold hundreds of thousands of flexible packaging films to customers all over the USA.

 

During that time, we have consulted many clients on the cost of biaxially oriented polypropylene film. And, we can do the same for you.

 

With the information in this article, you will know how much BOPP film costs and what factors contribute to the cost of this type of flexible packaging film.

 

BOPP Question

 

How Much Does Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene Film Cost?

 

Unlike shrink film, biaxially oriented polypropylene film is sold by the pound. Because of this, calculating your total cost for this type of flexible packaging film is extremely easy.

 

To figure out how much your quantity of BOPP film will cost you, you simply need to do some basic math. First, you need to figure out how many pounds of biaxially oriented polypropylene film you will require for your packaging needs.

 

Next, you multiply the number of pounds of film by the cost per pound of film from your chosen packaging vendor. Each vendor will have a different price, but most of the time, the cost per pound of BOPP film will range between $2.50 per pound and $5.00 per pound.

 

So, let's say that you need 500 pounds of biaxially oriented polypropylene film to package your products. And, the packaging materials vendor you have chosen charges $2.50 per pound of film. By using the simple equation below, you can easily calculate the total cost of your film order.

 

500 pounds x $2.50 = $1,250

 

With this information, you now have everything you need to calculate the total cost of your biaxially oriented polypropylene film.

Is There Any Way To Get A Reduced Cost For Your BOPP Film?

 

Many buyers of biaxially oriented polypropylene film often ask us, is there any way to get better pricing on this type of flexible packaging film?

 

And that is a good question; after all, we all want to purchase our goods at the lowest price possible, am I right? Of course, I am! who doesn't want to save money?

 

When it comes to getting a lower cost on your biaxially oriented polypropylene film, you have one way in which you can achieve this goal.

 

The way that you can get a lower price on your BOPP film is by shopping around and comparing pricing from multiple vendors. Some BOPP film sellers will give you a reduced cost per pound if you order over a specific number of pounds of film.

 

If you can purchase a large enough order of BOPP film, you can get a lower cost per pound and save some coin while stocking up on this material.

 

That being said, every vendor is different, and not all vendors will give you a discount on your film purchase. It is advised that you compare pricing from at least three to five packaging vendors to find a seller that will give you a discount for larger orders.

 

Finally, if you are shopping exclusively for the lowest price possible, you may not get the best customer service and lead times, depending on who the vendor is. If you are willing to spend a little more on a vendor who goes above and beyond in these dynamics, you may find that your experience will be far more accessible and enjoyable as a client.
