Measuring Your Basket for Shrink Bag Success


We've made it easy to achieve a beautiful gift basket with the right size shrink bag packaging. Here's how to measure your basket for the perfect size shrink wrap bag.


Step 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 shrink bag you will need for your basket. Always round up to the nearest even number.

Step 2

Measure the basket all the way around from top to bottom. Then add 10% to that measurement and divide by two. This will give you the correct height of the shrink 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 this measurement.

Step 3

Visit our shrink wrap product page to find the shrink basket bag to fit your needs. All of our sizes are stated width x height in inches.
