Promotional Tote Bags
Custom printed tote bags are a great investment to help promote your brand – nothing beats a highly visible brand advertisement that will be used by your customer again and again. Promotional tote bags are used on a daily basis by thousands of people so there is a high chance that your branded tote bag will still be spreading your message months after your event and let's face it...everyone loves a tote bag!
These bags are often called shoppers, shopping bags, totes and more...just to help clear things up for you. Whatever you call them they are long lasting, mega useful and always popular.
Cotton tote bags are also great for the environment – which is great for any organisation that wants to cut their carbon footprint and reduce the use of plastics and show customers they are working towards a more sustainble future. The main benefit is that cotton company tote bags are produced from natural cotton so they’re 100% biodegradable after use – no using up of space in landfill sites. Using this kind of bag also cuts back on the number of single-use plastic shopping bags that are used which is an added bonus for our planet.

Branded shopper bags – printing options
The most popular printing method for promotional tote bags is direct screen printing. With a large print area and low setup costs this is a great method if your logo/design includes 1-4 spot colours.
If you are printing an image or complex design then full colour printing is recommended. This allows us to print almost any design to the side of tote bags and if especially popular for exhibitions when you need your bag to stand out from the crowd.
There are several other specialist print methods available including gold/silver foil printing and glitter printing to give your design a shiny finish.
Bespoke printed bags with a design that runs from edge to edge or over the handles are also available – get in touch with our expert team to find out more.
Custom tote bags leadtime
We carry a good stock of most tote bag options so allowing 2 weeks for delivery is usually achievable. However, if you have an urgent deadline, we’re always happy to talk and see what is available as branded bags can often be delivered in 3-4 days if necessary. Bespoke bag options with specialist print methods can have a leadtime of 6-12 weeks but this depends on what print options are chosen.
