New Packaging for the Itsy Bitsy M0?

This may seem like a petty inquiry, but I was excited to see the M0 addition to the Itsy Bitsy line and ordered a couple to play with. I see that they came in heat-sealed slips instead of the more traditional zip-lock bags - is this going to be more of a standard going forward? I really like the anti-static Ziploc bags: I use them to store the bits in when I'm not using them and find them quite handy, especially due to the product ID already on them...

Probably.. we just got a new bagging machine up and running about a week ago, and are moving our packing to that. It's faster, and the heat seal resists changes in humidity better.

Oh, dear. That's what I was afraid of when I opened the package and saw the product packaging. Those little pink Ziploc bags were a very handy feature: I guess I'll have to find a source for the little anti-static bags and label by hand from now on. I have a bunch of the silver ones, but those aren't nearly as nice - you can't see what's in them very well. :(

Thank you for your prompt reply!
