A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230202721A1) describes a storage bag with unique closure profiles that provide visual cues to users. The bag consists of a first side surface and a second side surface connected to form an interior with an opening. The first closure profile, attached to the first side surface, has an interlocking member and a lip with a specific color. The lip extends a constant distance from the interlocking member to the top edge of the closure profile and is colored on both the inner and outer surfaces. The second closure profile, attached to the second side surface, also has an interlocking member and a lip. The lip of the second closure profile has three regions: a first region, a second region, and a third region. The third region, which extends a greater distance than the other regions, forms a center region that is visually distinguishable from the lip of the first closure profile. The color of the lip of the second closure profile is different from the color of the lip of the first closure profile, allowing users to easily identify and grasp the lips of the closure profiles to unseal the bag.

The patent also mentions additional features of the storage bag. The bag can have a rectangular shape or a non-rectangular shape with rounded corners. The color of the first side surface and the second side surface can match the color of the lips of the closure profiles. The color of the lips can be green for a general-purpose bag, magenta for a refrigerator bag, or blue for a freezer bag. The closure profiles can have gripping ridges on their inner and outer surfaces to provide effective gripping surfaces when unsealing the bag. The interlocking members of the closure profiles can have different colors from the lips to easily identify and seal the bag. Dimples can be provided on the closure profiles to provide visual cues and tactile feedback when interlocking the closure profiles.

Overall, this patent describes a storage bag with closure profiles that have visually distinguishable colors and features to guide users in unsealing and sealing the bag. The unique design aims to improve user experience and convenience.
