Great, I won't have to buy 2000 next time! (though the black with gold
trimmed oval window ones I got are very elegant:-) I suspect they'll be the
ones from Pacific, did you look at the style from Signaturebag.com? They
were substantial less than Pacific when I priced them...

2000! But then again I have an inkling that you roast a lot! I have 
looked at the signature bag samples but we have stuck with the more 
expensive Pacific Bag ones because 1. I know they use Bosch valves 2. 
I thought the signature samples had zip seals that gripped a little 
off: one of the sample bags wouldn't zip shut without a lot of a 
hassle. I did really like the style choices like the oval windows 
though...
BTW: I had some unexpected developments this weekend in 
roaster-ville. I'll put it in another post.

Yeah, 2000 was the Sig minimum order and at the time I couldn't find 1/4#
valve bags in small quantities. (still can't, you don't have them up on your
site yet:-) I only kept 200 bags, sold the rest at cost to other
homeroasters before Christmas. BTW, the Sig' bags use the patented valves
also. Zip shut wise I haven't had a problem, but do know the Sig' bags are a
bit lighter weight than Pacific, which means they heatseal better with the
Foodsaver! Single 5sec shot with Sig's makes perfect permanent seal, takes
2x5sec with Pacific's for assured heat seal. I always heatseal the bags when
gifting coffees.

I got a bunch of miKe's bags, complete with the nice oval window, and the
quality seems excellent to me.  I wouldn't worry.
I like the way they look much better than if they were just clear plastic.
