Ask yourself whether it will be used daily and hold all your makeup, or just a travel makeup bag for occasional use. Plenty of women carry different makeup bags- for work and casual days. Those working on-stage-careers are mostly compelled to carry three different makeup bags; one for general work, another for casual days and another for the stage. The secret to buying a good makeup bag is to keep it simple. Huge makeup bags may be confusing for women who travel most of the time as they only need to grab what they require fast. However, other women find it more convenient to buy a bag with many compartments that can separate brushes, lipstick, and foundation and so on.
The inside lining of a make-up bag is the first thing to consider when buying a makeup bag. Customized makeup bags with custom liners are ideal especially if you need to store toiletries. Girls are especially fond of carrying lots of makeup essentials- lip-gloss, sunblock, hair brush- hence the need for a waterproof bag. FemmePromo makes waterproof makeup bags made of artificial leather, PVC, and nylon ideal water-resistant materials.
Stand-on-their-own private label bags
Makeup bags that can stand on their own and still allow room for more essentials are the best. It can be pretty tiring to carry huge oblong makeup bags that are bulky. Small makeup bags, on the other hand, are tedious when fumbling through for your favorite lip gloss or brush. Save time by buying makeup bags with top zippered pouches and a flat bottom. Wholesale bags made in China come zipped and can stand on their own. The bags can stand on a table, hard surface allowing the user to use both hands freely when putting on makeup. So the next time you go buying a makeup bag, consider on that is both roomy and sturdy. In conclusion, there is a makeup bag for everyone. Just a little bit of searching and you will find a personalized private label optimized for your needs.

Customers often call in asking for suggestions to take their promotional or private label campaigns to the next level. It’s not unusual at all for our callers to say “I’m so glad I found you” or “your products are so different from whats out there.” And they look to us for ideas and inspiration to stand out from the rest. Who wants another boring imprinted pen or tote bag? Our customers don’t. If you do, you’re probably calling the wrong company.
One of the most common questions I get is, “how do I pull off the most creative and original idea, but on a limited budget?” Our suggestion is to utilize four color process printing (full color printing). Full color printing gives the opportunity to utilize as many colors as wanted and/or needed and the best thing is that there is only one set-up charge that covers all the colors (unlike silkscreen printing where you need to pay a set-up for each color screen made). Full color printing is like if you were using your regular conventional color printer at home—it can print full color logos, images, patterns, gradients, photo quality images, and so much more! There is no extra charge to do this since our machines are already set-up to print the spectrum of colors. There’s no long turn around time and most importantly, to our creative enthusiasts, no constraints on creativity.
So go ahead and be bold! Express yourself freely through color! It will definitely make your next promotional product campaign go from bland to grand. Here are some of my personal favorites in which you can fully customize the artwork with any full color design—by the way, if you need help with designing, give me a call.

I have clients ask me every day about neoprene laptop sleeves, and why custom neoprene sleeves are such a good choice for a promotional giveaway or corporate gift. Neoprene has become a more and more popular material used in laptop sleeves, iPod covers, and surfer’s wetsuits. Even high-end designers like Balenciaga, Lanvin, Vera Wang, and Pierre Hardy have used neoprene in their collections, but no one seems to know exactly what neoprene is!
Neoprene is a highly innovative material that is most commonly known for use in bodysuits or wetsuits for surfing and other water sports. It’s thick, washable, soft, and waterproof. Neoprene can even be twisted and pinched and not lose its shape or have weird stretch lines in it like plastic or leather. The reason surfers use it is because it can hold your body’s temperature for hours, so they can stay in the cold water for longer periods of time without getting hypothermia.
Neoprene was invented just a few weeks before nylon in the 1930’s by DuPont Performance Elastomers through a corporate research project. This was the first ever, successfully made synthetic rubber in history! Polychloroprene is the technical name for neoprene. Originally, it was used for automotive parts like fan belts, and other industrial applications like hoses and tires. During World War II, ALL of the neoprene in the U.S. was sent to help with war efforts. Neoprene is a tough material and it can stand up to water, oils, solvents, heat and is even somewhat resistant to fire.
So why make a laptop sleeve out of it? A custom neoprene laptop cover is the perfect promotional giveaway! The material is thick, protective, and it oozes sophistication due to its high quality –which means the laptop sleeve won’t go to waste because people will actually use it. Neoprene laptop cases are versatile and can even stretch up to 0.5” to fit different size laptops. We recently added a wide selection of new neoprene laptop cases and other custom neoprene products to our site and they can be imprinted in a variety of methods, including full color sublimation, screen print, heat transfer, deboss, and embroidery.

Most of us are somewhat familiar with the idea of embroidery or silkscreen for custom imprinted bags. A less familiar term is dye sublimation, another method to imprint your logo or custom design on corporate apparel, sports team uniforms, totes, bags, make up cases, and anything polyester, neoprene, and a plethora of other textile options. The cool thing about sublimated print and what sets it truly apart is that you can imprint 4 color process and all over design on any tote, bag, or t-shirt.
Although the term may seem foreign, you’ve probably seen these bags in all the major stores like Macy’s, Lucky Brand, GUESS, and so much more. Sublimation is one of the best imprinted methods to get a full color designs on a t-shirt or tote bag, without having to pay for each and every color (like you do with silkscreen process). You pay for one set-up charge and it covers all colors in your all over print designs.
Technically speaking, sublimation works like this: using a special machine for sublimation printing, the heated sublimation inks become a part of the fabric’s molecules and there is no smearing once transferred. The inks are created to vaporize at certain high temperatures rapidly, transforming from solid to gas quickly and bypassing the liquid phase, so that fine detail and brilliant color can embed seamlessly on soft polyester or poly-coated products. This is how photo quality, complex imprints are printed on custom mugs, t-shirts, and cosmetic bags. And if you were to run your fingers across the fabric, you would feel nothing as the inks become part of the fabric.
After the item cools down from the sublimation process – it is completely ready to be used! These fabrics can be washed 50 times and still have great color! The only thing that fades these inks is extended exposure to sunlight, but there are special coatings to extend the life of the imprint when exposed to UV rays (usually for promotional beach bags or outdoor apparel).
In order to achieve the best heat transfer, the heat press should be at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and sometimes lower depending on the product.
Sublimation printing works best on 100% polyester apparel, cosmetic bags, and totes. Polymer coated substances, such as some mugs and coasters work very well too. To achieve a vintage look on your custom dye sublimation product, you should use a poly-cotton blend t-shirt. You also need to keep in mind that sublimation ink only shows up on white or light colored apparel, rather than dark colors like black or navy. Pretty much, the ink must be darker than the fabric to sublimate well.
We LOVE custom sublimation because it offers the greatest room for creativity. Set-up is a little more expensive. Where as silkscreen printing is only $25 or $35 per color, dye sublimation is usually over $150. However, if you think about how much it costs to imprint 4 colors in silkscreen, it’s pretty comparable. Plus, sublimation is the only way to get that photo quality all over print design onto a tote bag or t-shirt. Here are our favorite personalized sublimated bags:
