Where does Days of Wonder buy their TTR resealable bags? Sun, 08 September 2013 02:31
I have many different games and I have found that the plastic bags for TTR trains are the perfect size for lots of things: card decks, components, etc.

However, I can't seem to find anyone who sells bags of those specific dimensions (3.5" x 5"). Either they are smaller (lots of 3" wide bags) or deeper (6").

I did find and order that exact size once on eBay, but the resealable part of the bags was very cheaply made as opposed to the solidly made ones in the TTR games.

So, Days of Wonder, what manufacturer do you use for those bags? Where can I buy them?

Thanks,

Brandon

We don't buy these bags piecemeal or directly; instead our manufacturers acquire them from vendors we don't have a direct relationship with (and who I'm quite sure don't do any direct sales to consumers). Sorry!

A little disappointed with the response, I'd like some spares myself, but I'm astounded there was one from DoW directly.
Love you guys, willing to actually use the forums to communicate with your customers. That's awesome.

I get my resealable bags from a stationary store, in a variety of sizes. Try searching for resealable bags.

I expect DoW buy bags by the gazillion and get an appropriate price for quantity.

Thanks, roshne.

Your link to gtbag.com led to the actual size (3.5 x 5) that I specified in my original post.
