Promotional bags are a popular choice as they generate awareness of your business and brand whilst on the move, spreading your message far and wide. Printed bags act like walking billboards, providing effective mobile advertising for the long term. Branded bags keep your logo and campaign message visible at corporate events, conferences, exhibitions and when your customers are commuting or going about their daily lives.
Since 2015, when the shopping bag tax was introduced in the UK, our habits have transformed and with this comes popularity for well designed promotional bags or Bag For Life. Many of our personalised bags fit this requirement and offer a solution to replace the use of many hundreds of plastic carrier bags with one reliable good quality branded bag. They can be expected to have a life of 4 years plus in many cases. Now, that’s a good opportunity for repetitive and consistent brand impressions!
With so many options available, tailor your personalised printed bags to suit your requirements. Printed tote bags are a great low cost giveaway for mass distribution or you may be looking for a professional business bag or branded laptop bag to give to staff. Sports bags offer a versatile solution for use in many situations, or a cooler bag is perfect for a summer promotion. Printed drawstring bags are a versatile solution for sports, gyms, childrens activities, schools and goody bags. For sustainable printed bags, be sure to check out our Eco Bags.

How to choose the right promotional bag?
We always recommend you first consider who will receive your giveaway bag and what they will use it for. What are the most important factors for you? Is it quantity, budget, a big print area, full colour print requirements or lead time? All these factors are helpful as they narrow down the options that fit your needs. The more practical the branded bag is, the longer it will be kept and the more brand impressions you will achieve. That equals better return on investment for your marketing campaign.
Example 1 - you want to buy printed expo bags. You need volume and a big print area. Budget will likely be a key factor which is why our cheap promotional bags are a winner – the long handled budget cotton tote bag is a top seller as well as the Expo Bag. Both these styles can be used as shopping bags afterwards amongst other things. If you do have the budget, a branded canvas bag will be more durable therefore likely to display your marketing message much longer.
Example 2 – you want to give your new employees a welcome pack to ensure their first day has the right tone. You have adopted hybrid working and your employees will commute to the office 1 day a week. Corporate branded bags, especially a branded laptop backpack would be ideal. It’s durable, smart, branded with company logo and practical for your staff to use at home and on their commute. You get some free advertising whilst they are travelling to boost your return too.t

Make the most of the print area available by including marketing messaging into your design on your logo branded bags.
