Collapsible Shopping Bags: 8 Times They Save the Day!

GEB1671-GroupCollapsible shopping bags are everywhere. They’re so convenient, and perfect for grab-n-go shopping trips. Clients love how compact they are. You can stash them virtually anywhere and they don’t take up much space. In municipalities that have plastic bag bans and fees, this style is especially popular amongst both men and women!

When considering a collapsible shopping bag for your next marketing promotion or fundraiser, make sure to evaluate the material options against your intended use. Nonwoven polypropylene collapsible shopping bags are very budget friendly, but won’t be as compact or durable as our Medium RuMe Bag (for example).

Five [Other] Uses for Custom Laminated Bags

Custom Laminated BagsWhether purchased in small quantities of 100, or fully customized and ordered by the thousands, custom laminated bags are popular items around here! The smooth, shiny feel of the material combines with bright logos and bold colors appeal to a wide range of marketers and retail stores alike (check out our client’s bag to the left!). Plus, since lamination is slick, it’s easier to clean that an uncoated bag made from the same material (simply wipe it down with a wet cloth or disinfectant spray).

Our custom laminated bags are made using woven polypropylene, nonwoven polypropylene, or recycled PET and come in many different sizes, colors, and materials. This is great for the purpose of making your logo pop for a reusable bag project, but what happens after you give the bag away? Likely, they are reused, perhaps as a grocery bag. After all, the laminated coating allows the rectangular bag to better maintain its shape, which enables easier packing at checkout.

But there are lots of other uses for custom laminated bags once you’re done using them. Here are our favorite five ways to repurpose them: Continue reading
