In our last blog post, we discussed how important it is for grocers to have their own branded, reusable grocery bags. In this post, we will delve into a related, and increasingly relevant topic: food deliveries and curbside pickup. Most grocery stores now offer some sort of curbside pickup program, so you don’t even have to set foot in the store to get your groceries. Many also offer delivery options, allowing you to shop from the comfort of your home. In addition to grocers, there are a number of other types of businesses that offer similar services including: meal deliveries, pet food companies, meat and fish markets, and of course restaurants. If your business offers food delivery or curbside pickup, investing in custom bags is something you should seriously consider.
Insulated grocery bags continue to be among our best-selling type of bag. This is partially due to the rise in fresh food delivery and grocery delivery companies—two recent entrants into an industry once reserved for traditional take-out and delivery services offered only by restaurants.
This increased demand has caused a new wave of innovation in this once sleepy category. New styles, sizes, closures, and customizations mean more options than ever!
Today, food delivery is the new norm, whether it be take-out from your favorite restaurant, groceries, or meal kits. It’s easier than ever to have yummy, fresh, healthy (or not!) food delivered to your doorstep, but how do companies ensure your order stays at temperature while being transported and until you can get it inside? This is where insulated food delivery bags come in. Continue reading
If you’re looking for a small insulated tote bag, the Laminated Lunch Bag might be just the one for you! One of our staff testers, Deborah, recently took this bag out for an extended spin and was pleasantly surprised by it.
Deborah took this bag on her road trip home to Montana for the 2019 holiday season and she says “This is a really handy bag to have around! From the obvious use of taking lunch to work/school, to an all-around good bag to keep in the car just in case, I took this bag with me on a car trip this year and was able to pack just the right stuff for the road. I had cold water, a few small and special food items that needed to stay cool, and a place for some napkins in the outside pocket. And I had room to spare because once I opened my snack, I slid it into the handy outer mesh pocket for easy access while driving!” Continue reading
Wait! Put away your sweaters and pumpkin spice. Summer’s not over quite yet. Besides, even if it were, that’s ok! Our insulated cooler bags are ready to rock into fall…and beyond! Plus, they can do duty year-round as food delivery bags and insulated grocery bags. If you’re lucky enough to live in a mild climate all the time (sigh….), then you can definitely put these hacks to good use now!
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
Looking for a custom insulated bag that’s not too small and not too big, like the one Goldilocks would gravitate towards? You’ve found just the bag with our Horizontal Thermal Tote!
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
Insulated 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
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
Our custom insulated bags are hard working at any time of year. That’s part of the reason they’re always in demand. The Cooler Tote Bag is a newer addition to our lineup, and has been added in part because its shape is unlike most insulated bags on the market.
Our Cooler Tote Bag is so much more than just a tote. Our staff tester discovered that it’s the perfect size for so many uses, because it can fit much more food than it appears! Its non-traditional tote shape means it can easily go from market to picnic to dinner party and not feel like you’re toting a grocery bag around town. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course! Continue reading
Considering a bag project that WOWS? Summer is the perfect time to consider reusable insulated grocery bags! If they’re not on your radar, you HAVE to take another look. They’ll keep foods (and beverages) cool for much longer than their non-insulated counterparts. Sure, they’re pricier, but they’re totally worth it—especially for hot-weather promos. It’s pretty much guaranteed that your recipients will 1) not throw away their new bag, 2) carry it everywhere, and 3) love you for doing a branding project with their new favorite bag. And, when you buy them in bulk, the price is even lower, stretching your marketing moolah to the max! Continue reading
