COOL IT OFF
That’s right. Those in the cooler know that if you store your cooler bag in a warm place, you’ll lose ice just to cool the actual cooler bag! Makes sense, right? So if you can plan ahead, throw some ice in there a few hours beforehand to cool the cooler. Continue reading

Colored Zipper Cotton Wristlet: Staff Review of a Popular Pouch!

Colored Zipper Cotton WristletWhat do retail stores, food companies, and healthcare providers have in common? They all love our Colored Zipper Cotton Wristlet! So, we had Deborah, one of our staffers, do an extended test of this bag to see what all the buzz is about.

Well, for one…she loves the thick cotton canvas on this wristlet, and we couldn’t agree more. After all, it is 10 oz, which is more than durable enough to withstand whatever you can throw at (in?) a small pouch (note: the colored cottons are 9 oz.). The imprint is high quality, and it overall just feels like a sturdy pouch that’s going to last!  Continue reading

Awesome photo credit to Steve Moakley

Recently we had a chance to chat with Laura Davis, Founder and Creative Director of Newton Supply Co. The company, based in Austin, Texas, offers sustainable and ethically made bags and accessories. They have been selling our TradeWinds Custom Canvas Tote in their online store since 2016. We love the mission of Newton Supply Co. as much as we love  working with TradeWinds…and we are thrilled they have found each other, because the two organizations dovetail perfectly!

Bulletin Bag: What prompted your team to consider a project using custom bags?

Laura Davis: We produce handbags and weekenders, and were looking for a reusable shopping tote to add to our line to cater to our gift shop retailers that buy wholesale from us. We wanted to look for a partner that could manufacture for us, since we are currently at capacity production-wise.  Continue reading

This custom insulated tote features a three-sided zipper on top, which allows for more food to be stowed inside without getting smooshed when you close it and also keeps the cold inside, where it’s supposed to be! Continue reading

Single Insulated Bottle Tote: More Than Just a Wine Bag!

Insulated Bottle ToteInsulated wine bags are great for toting your favorite chardonnay and keep it cool until you arrive at your destination. But what if you don’t like chilled wine? Do these bags turn into a big waste of money? Definitely not! Here’s why.

We recently put our Single Insulated Bottle Tote to the test, literally! Deborah (our awesome sales admin) visited her local liquor store. Together with the store manager, they grabbed bottle after bottle to see what they could fit inside of this handy insulated bag. You might be shocked (kidding, kidding!) to learn that traditional 750 mL wine bottles fit like a glove. But do you know what? 1.5 L magnums also fit (tightly, but if there’s a will…). That’s not all.  Continue reading

Custom Reusable Bags: An Integral Part of the Supermarket of the Future

Have you heard about the world’s first plastic-free supermarket aisle? It’s a 60 square meter space installed inside of an Ekoplaza store in Amsterdam, and its aim is to change the way you think about plastics consumption (do you see how custom reusable bags are going to come into play here?).

Instead of plastic fixtures and fittings, the supermarket aisle uses lampshades reclaimed from other stores, metal-and-wood shelves, and cardboard labels. Walk the aisle and you’ll see nearly 700 products-from meat and dairy to beans and veggies-and each one is packaged with non-plastic materials! Can you imagine stocking up on a week’s worth of groceries and yield no plastic waste?  Continue reading

Why Don’t You Have Any Custom Hemp Bags on Your Website?

hemp reusable bagsHere’s the low-down on one of our most often asked questions, and we sure do wish the answer was better: custom hemp bags are just are really, really hard to source.

It’s true. On a regular basis, we scour our sources and turn over every rock for one–just ONE!–hemp reusable bag for our site. We used to have a super awesome hemp bag on our site, but unfortunately that factory stopped selling them here.

We dream about the day that we can shout from the rooftops that we’ve hit gold and found another hemp bag. It’s why we still have that category (Jute is a great alternative, too, and so is cotton. Just sayin’). But this day may not come for a long time. Continue reading

Folding Lunch Bag and a Custom Water Bottle: A Great Team!

Folding Lunch Bag Water bottles and lunch bags. A more perfect pairing has never been…Oh, ok. That’s taking things a little far. But they DO play well together. Speaking of playing well, our staff tester recently discovered that our Folding Lunch Bag meshes really well with some water bottles on Bulletin Bottle, and she was so excited to share what she discovered!

Our staff tester started out using the Folding Lunch Bag, but stumbled upon the fact that Bulletin Bottle’s h2go Mali Tumbler with Straw fits perfectly inside it! She decided to do a joint review since ultimately she tested both items together. Continue reading
