Creating a Custom Bag From Scratch

Bags, totes, and cosmetic pouches are among the most popular and most customizable promotional products our there. Corporations hand them out, trade show booths are filled with them, and everyone is familiar with the gift with purchase cosmetic bags that companies like Clinique and Lancome offer. There are 2 ways to create a custom bag campaign. The first option is to choose from a pre-existing selection of cute, designer bags and totes. This is referred to as “stock bags” because we already have the bags readily available in stock, and we are able to easily imprint or embroider, within certain parameters, upon request.

The second option is to create your own bag from start to finish, with your choice of colors, fabrics, dimensions, and design. If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for in the stock bags, this option gives you the ability to create the perfect bag from scratch! In the design process, you’re able to pick and choose the color that matches your brand perfectly, the dimensions that are the most functional, the material that ties it all together, and a number of other design details to make your bag exactly what you want.

Stock bags are slightly more cost effective, approximately $0.20-$1.50 cheaper per bag, depending on the bag. However, they are not necessarily faster to produce, as many people tend to believe. Because we produce custom bags domestically, they can be completed within 2-3 weeks! Creating a custom bag with your own signature design can be very rewarding and, of course, fun! It’s definitely worth paying a little extra to have the perfect bag.

Check out some of our custom bag projects below. Take notice of the variety – the sky is the limit! We can do allover imprints, make use of different fabric patterns, include unique details, and much much more!

Our Custom Tote Bag Debuts in Glamour Magazine

We’re excited to share with you our first debut in a national women’s fashion publication – Glamour magazine!  During the month of October, national Breast Cancer Awareness month, our client, Pandora Jewelry, launched their highly successful awareness campaign, co-branded with well-known Susan G. Komen.  From concept to completion, we presented, mocked-up, produced a prototype, and completely delivered a large scale campaign nation-wide, which produced one of the best promotional campaigns for Pandora Jewelry.  The added buzz was a bonus.  These delightful reversible neoprene totes were so successful that over a month before the promotion even launched, the bags were sold out and our client had to order more.  The second shipment sold out just as quickly, but customers continually called in trying to find other ways to get them.

Check out the awareness ad in Glamour magazine this past October, 2009:
