Staff Review: Solid Laminated Gift Bag with Snap

Solid Laminated Gift Bag with SnapLaminated gift bags are among our most popular products we sell. But they don’t usually come with a closure, unless you order custom bags. Enter the Solid Laminated Gift Bag with Snap!

This is a super-cute bag that offers great logo printing space on a solid canvas. The gusset color is the same as the front and back and it’s all finished with a matte lamination, which is also a hard-to-find characteristic! Continue reading

Colored Zipper Cotton Wristlet: Staff Review of a Popular Pouch!

Colored Zipper Cotton WristletWhat 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

Horizontal Thermal Tote: Staff Review

Horizontal Thermal ToteLooking 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

Single Insulated Bottle Tote: More Than Just a Wine Bag!

Insulated Bottle ToteInsulated 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

Folding Lunch Bag and a Custom Water Bottle: A Great Team!

Folding Lunch Bag 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

Popular Custom Drawstring Backpacks Comparison: Staff Review

Drawstring Backpack ComparisonCustom drawstring backpacks. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they can be a pretty great addition to your branding project. They’re lightweight and super portable. In this staff review, we compare two of our most popular drawstring backpacks: The Classic Cinchpack and the Cinch Bag with Mesh Pocket.

Overall, both of these drawstring backpacks are pretty similar. After all, the nature of the bag is simplistic in design, and there’s not too much to expand on. Our staff tester tried out these two bags in relatively spontaneous ways: a picnic lunch, collecting things to take home during a hike, quick trip the store for just a few items, and carrying art supplies when heading to the park for a little R&R and art.  Continue reading

Maybe you’re just in search of a bag to store something specific in? Whichever category you fit into, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by our Hanging Toiletry Bag, the focus of this staff review.

Our staff tester said, “I love the size of this bag! As a toiletry bag it will carry everything I need for any trip without being too big, as it can easily fit in a carry-on bag.”  Continue reading

Cooler Tote Bag: Staff Review

Cooler Tote BagOur 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

Recycled PET Folding Sling Tote: Staff Review

Recycled PET Folding Sling Tote BagThe PET Folding Sling Tote is the sister bag of our wildly popular PET Folding Carry All. Bags made from recycled materials are always in style, and this bag is made from recycled post-consumer PET, so it’s lightweight, durable, and easy to fold up and store.

Our staff reviewer said, “This is my go to bag for a number or different things personally! When traveling, I will pack a couple inside of my suitcase or purse because they’re so compact and feather light! Then I always have one to throw over my shoulder with some necessities and off I go ready to enjoy shopping, sightseeing, hiking, riding roller coasters or whatever other fun activity we have planned and need a bag that doesn’t get in the way!” Continue reading
