Promotional Tote Bags
Totes are most likely the first style that comes to mind when you think about promotional bags. This classic style can come in so many variations that give it many uses and applications; it's part of the reason why it is such a great choice for many businesses.

Branded Gift Bags
Gifting is a huge market that has its uses all year round from birthdays and anniversaries to Christmas and weddings.
Many retail businesses, if not all, are in the gifting industry even if they do no market themselves that way; therefore, selling or providing custom-printed gift bags is a huge opportunity to not only increase revenue but elevate the brand and customer experience.

Printed Drawstring Pouches
Drawstring pouches are great for product packaging and have become more and more popular for jewellery, hair, home and beauty brands. They can be used to store candles, skincare, bath bombs and other small items then reused by customers as travel or gift bags.
The drawstring closure keeps everything inside secure and the cord strings make them easy to transport.
Our range of drawstring pouches come in a range of sizes and materials including natural jute and organic cotton. They can be customized with your bespoke artwork so that you can create custom packaging that align with your brand.
It is a simple and sustainable way to enhance your products and remove wasteful and harmful packaging from your business.
Promotional Zipped Pouches
Another style of sustainable bag that works well as a promotional product are zipped pouches. These are typically associated with cosmetic bags and pencil cases so they are the perfect fit for a beauty or stationery brand.
They may not garner as many impressions as a tote or gift bag but they have a more luxe feel because of the finishing details such as the beautiful YKK zippers and inner lining. This gives them a higher value whether being sold or given away as a free gift.
Our collection of pouches with zip closures are all made from sustainable materials and can be tailored to your business with custom-printing or full customization. This helps you create a promotional zipped pouch that aligns with your brand and offers your customers a useful and high-quality bag that can be slipped into their handbag or suitcase whenever they are on-the-go.
Printed Cooler Bags
