With the rise of reusable and the banning of plastic bags, tote bags are only becoming more and more popular as a promotional product.
A promotional tote bag, also known as a reusable shopping bag is a carrying bag with parallel handles that are attached to the top or side of the bag. They are custom printed with an organisations logo or message and commonly given away to promote brand awareness or for marketing purposes.
Tote bags are always a top pick for promotional merchandise and something we consider a staple in any product range. They have a low cost per unit, a large print area, are used frequently, have a large colour range and can be given to nearly all demographics. Just think about how many different branded shopping bags you see each week at the supermarket.
Marketing tote bags are commonly given away at trade shows or events because they are useful as a carry bag on the day and can be paired with other printed collateral about the brand or product you are trying to promote. And then after the event is over they are still useful in the weekly grocery shop, still generating impressions of your brand.
Shopping bags are great for branding because they have a flat surface allowing for a large print area. This means that your logo can be displayed bigger for cheaper and therefore easily seen from a distance. For an economical product, a single colour print is going to be your best option. However modern print technology now also allows stunning full-colour printing for a small additional cost if you want your design to stand out.
