Topic: 1/4# valve bags (4 msgs / 69 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
I'm about sick of them! Weighing & packaging 1750 of 'em etc. that is. But
they are way cool. Look classy, plenty of room for my 2x4" label above gold
trimmed oval window (had the valve put on the back...) They hold 1/2# greens
with plenty of room to spare and seal great with FoodSaver on 5sec. - I
don't trust just ziploc for shipping. (Ron I put your Kona samplers in
them - from my valve bags - so you'll see!:-). Just tried 4.8oz roasted
weight Full City Sulawesi I roasted earlier this eve', fit no problem.
If Tom gets feedback from people who got them maybe he'll start carrying
them. I won't be buying another 2000 anytime soon. Kept 250 for myself:-)
MM;-) It's in the bag Kona Krazy miKe mcKoffee

Mike, could you describe how you vacuum seal without disturbing the plastic 
zipper?  I would like to try this.
Thanks,

Leslie, I don't think he vacuum seals them.  He just uses the Food Saver to
heat seal them.  I'm assuming that there is enough bag material above the
zipper to do this, but then again I could be all wrong :-).

Randy, you are exactly correctly. Just heat seal above the zip. The 'tear
knotch' is then between the zip and seal. They are actually designed to be
heat sealed...
