The bags can be printed in up to three spot colors and feature full bleed, seam to seam printing for no additional charge. This line of cotton tote bags truly offers so many options for your organization’s messaging, without sacrificing quality or brand identity. Continue reading →

What 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 →
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 →
We introduced our custom pouches in May, and they very quickly became some of our most popular items, for good reason! Our pouches are really affordable, and, on top of that, can be ordered in as few as 50 pieces.
These pouches work well for clients who need something smaller than a gift bag, and with a higher perceived value than some of the other common bag materials. Continue reading →

Did you know that in some industries, more than 97% of production is done overseas. We find a similar pattern in the custom bag industry. It can be faster and less expensive to crank bags out overseas than to keep the production here in the USA, and everyone loves lower prices. Plus, it can be hard (or impossible) to source certain raw materials in the USA. These factors have typically add up to a more expensive bag, but it’s all the more reason why we’re extra excited to offer FIVE new, budget-friendly tote bags made in the USA!
Our USA made bags are typically higher-quality than comparable bags made overseas (notice we said comparable…check sizes and cotton weights to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples), and come with stories of the real-life people behind the bags (like our Tradewinds Custom Canvas Tote, which is made by people with disabilities).
While many of our clients who want USA-made bags know to expect to pay a premium, we also see that the made in USA “must-have” check-box is the first to go away when faced with budget limitations. But that’s changing…starting now! You CAN check off the USA box and keep your budget intact! Continue reading →
