The explosive growth in the use of screen-printed backpacks has opened up a great deal of new promotional opportunities for brands across industries.
Custom backpacks not only offer a variety of ways to decorate with branded designs, but because they can be used for hiking or commuting to work, for example, there are even more ways to customize the shape, size, and overall style.

Let’s break the available customizations for screen printed backpacks down so you can see the level of detail we can help bring to your custom backpacks.

How to Customize a Backpack

The beauty and the curse are that there are endless possibilities to customize on screen-printed backpacks! There is not a right or a wrong way, giving your brand total creative freedom to push the boundaries and experience with different levels of customization.

We can essentially deconstruct a backpack in order to personalize it from the inside out, so to speak. Components that we most commonly customize in screen printed backpack include:

  • Application and placement of branded custom screen print designs and logo either inside or outside
  • Interior lining
  • Outside material or materials
  • Interior and exterior pockets
  • Closure types: buckles, zippers, buttons, or other kinds of clasps
  • Branded zipper pulls like leather or silicone
  • Contrasting zippers, stitched, and zipper pulls
  • Straps and loops
  • Hangtags, woven labels, embroidered patches

Trending Backpack Styles

While you may think that there are only a few different backpack styles to select for your screen printed backpacks, think again. There are over a dozen popular backpack styles to choose from when it comes to selecting the perfect fit for your screen printed backpack. Here are some of the trending styles:

Classic Backpack

The style most people are familiar with. It’s designed with two straps, one main compartment to store things inside, and a small accessory pouch on the front.


This style builds on the classic backpack and typically has a flap and buckle for opening and closing the main compartment versus a zipper, giving the bag some rugged and outdoorsy vibes.

Laptop Backpack

This style is self-explanatory offering a customized compartment for a laptop and likely some other accessory pouches for tech items.

Tactical Backpack

Popularized by those serving in the military, tactical style backpacks are heavy-duty, weather-resistant, and have a ton of different pockets and compartments -- they offer a high level of protection, great for those in the tech space who commute and carry IT equipment to and from.

Roll Top Backpacks

This style is used a lot by those who ride bicycles either as a commuting alternative or as a part of a delivery job. Like the tactical style, they’re usually made from a very durable material that is weather-resistant and can hold plenty of items while still being manageable while riding through city streets.

Drawstring Backpack

A great bag for fitness brands to offer members as they’re lightweight, extremely portable, and made from polypropylene material.
