Branded jute shopping bags are well recognised for their eco-friendly appearance and are commonly seen at the checkouts at supermarkets being used to hold groceries by shoppers. Savvy marketers have seen this as well and jumped at the opportunity to increase awareness of their brand by giving away jute bags customised with their logo.
Promotional jute bags are non-rigid containers used for transporting items such as groceries or personal belongings. Jute is the name of the plant or fibre used to create the bag and is popular because of its price, strength and uniformity. To make them promotional these bags are custom printed with an organisations logo, tagline or brand message. The bags are commonly given away free at events or used for merchandising purposes.
Jute bags are the perfect promotional gift because they fit well into environmentally conscious brand values, have a long useful life and allow for plenty of space for printing. With plastic bags being now banned across most of Australia reusable alternatives are a must-have. People previously received these bags for free from the supermarket so will appreciate doing the same with bags they receive from brands.
At first jute or branded hessian bags were only available in a natural colour but now either separate panels or the whole bag can be dyed to create an eye-catching product. New more efficient decoration methods also allow for unlimited colour digital printing on bags so the creative possibilities are endless.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are jute bags actually made from?
These bags are made from a plant called Jute - this vegetable can be spun into long, strong threads for curing and then weaving into items such as bags, rope, cloth and more. Some options will also include a blend of cotton material to form Juco.
Why choose jute bags over polypropylene?
Jute is both eco-friendly, strong and has an attractive aesthetic that you’re never going to get with a polypropylene bag. This means that they’ll last longer and create a more positive perception of your brand.
How are jute bags printed?
For the most economical decoration, a one colour screen print is typically the best choice. Digital transfer printing is also available for those who want a full-colour print.
Can I get a sample before ordering?
Of course, it’s important you are 100% happy with the quality of the products before you add your logo. Just let us know and we can arrange for one to be sent to you.
