As we’ve mentioned before, we have lots of clients that work at our nation’s colleges and universities. In looking at product sales over the last week, not only did we discover some pretty cool trends with water bottles (read more here), but we also noticed that there is a similar gravitation in this industry towards certain bags—and they weren’t the ones we would have guessed!
Here are Bulletin Bag’s top six best-selling custom bags for college students! Continue reading
Many of our nonprofit clients hold reusable bag fundraisers and most think they want cheap reusable bags to resell. After all, buying the most bags you can get for your money makes sense, right? At first glance, it might seem that way. However, this is not usually the way to maximize a return on your investment.
We understand that money is tighter than ever before. There is a lot of competition between equally worthy organizations for that money. While not all nonprofit demographics will support a $10 or $20 per-bag fundraiser, finding a “sweet spot” between initial cost and return will yield a much more successful fundraiser than you think.
Don’t believe us? Consider these three examples: Continue reading

Bulletin Bag has been selling custom drawstring backpacks for a long time. The problem is, unless a client asked, they had no idea we offered them! We’re excited to announce that has changed. We now have a category on our website just for drawstring backpacks!

We offer lots of reusable lunch bags to print your logo on. For the most part, it’s fairly easy to spot the differences between them (material, shape, size, etc). However, we have two bags—the Snack Tote and the Insulated Therm-o-Snack—that seem pretty similar on the surface. In this staff review, we explain the differences so you can decide which is the better fit for your organization’s needs. Continue reading
For years, we’ve been saying that people love free stuff! And they do! But, how long does that love affair last? Well, that depends on the product, Generally speaking, however, nearly half of the recipients keep their promotional products for a year or more! Continue reading
We are often asked to add a tagline or URL to your logo for printing on your reusable bags. We are always happy to do this, but we ask that you provide us with the name of the font that you would like us to use. This can be confusing (not to mention, overwhelming!), so we want to help you understand fonts: what they are, why they are important, and what fonts we offer.
Everywhere you look, towns, cities, and counties all over the country are considering bans or fees on plastic bag use. They already know the environmental effects of single-use plastic bags is staggering. In an economy where belt-tightening is not an option, they’re also starting to realize the financial burden of plastic bags.
Plastic bag bans continue to create big opportunities for organizations to use customized reusable bags as a vehicle for getting their messages to the masses. Companies that use customized reusable shopping bags for giveaways, fundraisers, or resale have positioned themselves as leaders in an important environmental movement while creating a favorable impression of their brand. What’s more, every time the recipient of this inexpensive advertising tool uses it, other people see it too!
The Lantern, Ohio State University’s campus newspaper, reports that OSU Campus Dining Services joined the campus-wide effort to go green this fall by making the switch from plastic bags to reusable polyester bags. Prior to the start of the 2011-2012 school year, plastic bags alone were available at most campus dining locations for students to carry their meals home in.
Last fall, more than 10,000 reusable grocery bags were distributed to students—at no cost—in an effort to eliminate plastic bags. OSU has been toying with printed reusable grocery bags since last year, when orange reusable bags could be purchased in residence dining halls.
The orange bags were purchased with Campus Dining Services money, as were the black reusable grocery bags. Sustainability committees are reimbursing the money as part of campus’s sustainability project.
