Measuring Your Basket for Shrink Bag Success


How to measure your basket for the perfect size bag

1) With a flexible measuring tape, measure the entire circumference of the basket (the widest part, all the way around). Then add 10% to that measurement and divide by two. This will give you the width of the bag you will need for the particular basket. Always round up to the nearest even number.

2) Measure the basket all the way around from top to bottom, add 10% and divide by two. This will give you the correct height of the bag you will need for applying the bag over the basket so that the dome shape conforms perfectly to the handle. In order to create a plume or frilled top you must add an additional 6-8 inches to the length of the bag.

3) All of our sizes are stated width x height

4) After taking these steps to determine the correct size, if you are still not sure, please give us a call at 1.800.569.1266 or e-mail us.
