When it comes to thinking about effective promotional products there are a few spot checks to do in order to make the most out of your investment:

  • Is it popular with your audience segments?

  • How customizable is it?




Promotional bags often hit these marks and more. Affordable, high-quality, plenty of real estate to show off your brand, and lots of creative styles, they’re a no-brainer addition and upgrade to your promotional product lineup. Let’s dive into some details that will help you see how custom tote bags can benefit your business.

Cotton & Cork Tote Bags

Vegan and eco-friendly, cork makes a great leather alternative. Cork has a soft hand feel and packs in quality and durability. Similar to the unique nuances of worn leather, no two cork tote bags are the same. After the cork is harvested and processed, the material is extremely light, water-resistant, and withstands everyday wear and tear phenomenally well.

Aesthetically, the minimalist and clean vibes cork can bring to custom tote bags are unlike any other material like canvas or nylon. It carries its own character because it contains a waxy substance called suberin, dubbed as the “biopolyester” of plants, adding a microbial and biodegradable aspect to the material.

Mission Backpack

The ultimate backpack choice, the Mission Pack can carry anything from yoga mats and skateboards to a six-pack of beer or some wine. Can't forget safe device storage, but don’t fret, there’s plenty of tech-friendly pockets in this extra-large bag.

Danville Duffel

With a 35L capacity, the Danville Duffel combines mediums like vegan leather, cotton canvas, and brass hardware to create a rustic and rugged look. Larger items like jackets and shoes fit with room to spare. Customize this excellent promotional bag with your brand using a laser etching technique on the bag’s brass plate for a sophisticated display that compliments the bag’s vibes and be seen wherever it goes!
