Hmmm, it seems like your printer is catching on the raised creases of the bag. Seems like you need to make the bag flat so the printer doesn’t catch on it.

Sounds really tricky!

Is it possible to print the menu out on a separate piece of paper and then glue it to the bag?

ETA: Do you have an inkjet printer?  I’ve noticed that if you use a laser printer, it tends to print ‘cleaner’ than an inkjet.  Although I don’t know if it’s safe to put an bag like that through a laser printer.

You could hand stamp each bag instead of using a printer.

Well, I was going to suggest this but it’s not something I’ve ever tried before.  You need to make the part where you need printed to be as flat as possible.  I would try ironing it to get the creases out. I would maybe put a towel between the bag and the iron so it doesn’t burn the bag. I have no idea if this idea works or not.

ETA: Yup, I can see the photo.

What about folding the bottom in half? It’s hard to describe, but kind of fold the bottom so that both the front and back of the bag look identical, and the bottom is touching itself and kind of tucked inside the sides.

That might bring the crease below where you’d need to print?

Yay! I’m glad it worked.  I was afraid my last method would be a fire hazard and I certainly didn’t want you to burn down your house. LOL
