Once our clients find out the answer to their burning question about custom Lululemon bags, they get excited! But, there’s a lot about these bags that many people don’t realize. Here are five things you likely didn’t know about those custom Lululemon bags: Continue reading
What do you think of when you hear the phrase customizable reusable bags? Bags that you can pretty much design any way you’d like, right? Yep, us too, and that’s why our Customizable Book Bag is staffer Deborah’s current favorite.
Deborah says, “Who wouldn’t love this bag!?! The seams are tight and strong, the handles are sewn in firmly, and the lines are clean.” This bag’s made in the USA, which is an oft-desired characteristic in itself, and the construction is truly great. But that only tells part of the story. Continue reading
In September, Promotional Products Association International completed a study of more than 1,000 consumers to provide insight into the behaviors of the recipients of the custom reusable bags, custom water bottles, and other promotional items that you buy from a company like us. Well, we hope it’s us. But we digress…
The study found a year-over-year increase of the overall advertising reach of promotional products (hint: It’s higher than any other form of advertising that provides daily exposure!). Five in 10 consumers polled stated they encounter promotional products “most of the time or at all times per day”. Need more insight into turning your custom reusable bags project into money well spent? Consider the top 8 reasons why the people surveyed hang onto promotional products: Continue reading
There are many ways to make your bag project unique, from innovative imprint designs to fully custom laminated bags. However, not every client needs 2500 bags or can wait for 90 days. We also have lots of clients who want to source locally. That’s why it’s so awesome to be able to customize made in USA bags!
Think you’re limited by choosing a cotton or recycled fabric bag? Think again! Since these bags are made to order, the lead times are less, the minimum quantity is smaller, but you’re definitely not scrimping on ways to leave your mark.
Here are six ways to customize made in USA bags to fit your unique brand: Continue reading
“You know those laminated Whole Foods bags? Do you make those?” We have a lot of conversations that start out this way. (Psst…the answer is yes!). Bulletin Bag currently offers custom laminated bags in 13 stock sizes, and with several material options (some are even insulated). Additionally, we can make any of our custom bags in ANY shape, size, or material!
Remember that the lead-time is much longer for these bags than for our stock bags. What’s the difference? Stock bags have an imprint area that your art needs to print within, while custom laminated bags print from seam to seam on all surfaces of the bag. The minimum order quantity is 2500 bags for custom laminated bags, but the end result is worth it for a lot of clients. After all, it’s your messaging in full color, on all surfaces of the bag!

Drawstring backpacks have been around for more than 20 years, believe it or not. They’re a promotional products staple, a classic that will never go out of style.
As warmer temps push winter out of memory, you’re sure to notice that drawstring backpacks are out in full force. Maybe it’s because winter layers don’t need to be stuffed into backpacks, maybe it’s because lightweight convenience is just what everyone needs this time of year. Maybe both are true!
In any event, there are countless ways to incorporate drawstring backpack promotions into your marketing mix—no matter what your organization represents. The imprint area on these bags is large, making it the perfect canvas for all sorts of artwork! Here are five ways to create a buzz and jumpstart your next promotion with drawstring backpacks: Continue reading
Last month we hinted at some expansion plans for our website, which—up until now—has featured only custom reusable bags. We are thrilled to announce that this week we added the first of FIVE (!) new categories—custom promotional backpacks!
Backpacks are the first addition to our expanded product offering in response to our clients’ feedback. You wanted everyday packs, business cases, and laptop backpacks for school, work, play, and…life! Continue reading
Clients ask us all the time, “What are your most popular reusable bags?” It’s hard to answer that question, because no two projects are alike. The perfect custom bag for one client may be completely wrong for another.
That said, there are certain bags each year that clients gravitate towards. This year’s list is somewhat different from last year’s (which you can see here), with some of our new bags making a big impression. Meanwhile some of our long-standing “tried and true” custom bags didn’t even make this year’s list! Here are our top 10 custom reusable bags of 2015: Continue reading
Are you currently in the market for custom reusable bags now, or were you a client in the past? Well we have a sneak-peek for you. A tease, if you will.
We have a custom water bottle division, Bulletin Bottle [.com], and its new website just launched! Why do you care about that? Because the same clean, mobile-friendly look is on its way to Bulletin Bag [.com]! Continue reading
We first introduced you to Abby Goldberg three years ago (almost to the day!).
As a 13 year old in 2012, she helped persuade former Illinois Governor Pat Quinn into vetoing legislation that would have created a statewide plastic bag recycling program, while at the same time forbidding local bans on plastic bag.
As we predicted, Abby (now a high school junior) still has great passion for reducing plastic bag consumption. Continue reading
