Or perhaps these hook bags?

Another alternative...

Hook Bags

"Our clean, clear, polypropylene and polyethylene Hook Bags are
convenient, practical and save space. In the same family as header
bags, this Poly Bag is stronger and can hold more weight. On the top
of each bag we put a small plastic hook to hang the products for
display. Hooks are available in black or white. This Promotional Bag
is perfect for display and they are reusable. Customized bag
specifications are accepted in any size, style and color. We also
offer both plain or printed on one or two sides. Vent holes on this
bag allows air to circulate and moisture to escape...  These hook
plastic bags have exceptional clarity which makes it perfect for
product display at retail stores."

Do any of the products provided work for you?


Thanks,

Hi Bobbie7,
NOW we're talking! The bag is great. Is there a company that
specializes in card inserts though? This will be new to me and I'd
appreciate more info on that. Not sure about how it's done, what to
put on it, standard sizes, etc. -Jude1

Packaging: Custom Header Tag Design

Not all products have to come in a cardboard box. If you have a small,
loose item you're selling, consider the poly bag. It's an economical
way to get on retail shelves.

Perfect for small parts and lightweight products, the poly-bag is the
most cost effective packaging. Hit the right audience with our
professional design and sales/marketing consultation.

First, just send us a description and photos of your product(s), and
our experienced graphic artists will conjure up a header-tag design
geared to sell, sell, sell!

Next, we'll send you up to three, full color rough comps of the front
for you to choose from. Once we work together to nail down the
creative direction, our copywriters help you write effective sales
copy and finalize the design.

Our cost includes:

- Comprehensive marketing/packaging consultation
- Up to four hours design services tailored to your needs
- Up to three high-resolution scans
- Prepress file preparation
- Press-ready artwork on CD

Ask about our turnkey production and distribution services! We can
also provide competitive printing, polybag manufacturer, and product
fulfillment estimates upon request.

I was not able to find companies that specialize in card inserts. 

I thought a graphic design or a  printing company could make them for you.

For example this company does both.

Hello again Jude1,

I sent an email to Metro Graphics http://www.metrographics.com/ and
they said they can design your product insert. They would need print
specifications and once they have that, they would give you a price
estimate for the design.
