Promotional Bags are not only just plastic

When you think of promotional bags, what's the first thing that comes to mind? We asked a few people and they all said the common plastic carrier bag. Promotional polythene carrier bags (their more formal name) are one of the most popular forms of promotional bags. However, as fantastic as these promotional bags may be, they are not the only promotional bags on the market.

This article is intended to open up your minds to the promotional bag options and highlight the advantages of using a promotional item that is a bit different from the norm.

1. Stay Cool With Promotional Cooler Bags

The first example is promotional can coolers, these are bags designed to keep your beverages chilled. Our branded Tonbridge 6 can cooler bags, pictured below, are ideal for parties, events, pubs, restaurants, giveaways, product launches and brand projection as they keep drinks cooler for longer. All the while advertising your company name, logo or slogan. This can bring an advantage to the company and the customer, as everyone likes to sip a nice cool drink after a hard day’s work.

2. Keep It Clean With Handy Toiletry Bags

Promotional bags can hold anything you want them to, however if you know you have specific items want you to put in these bags (more promotional items) then you can customise your promotional bags to suit your company or products. For example, if your company sells toiletries then it would make sense to have a promotional toiletry bag as your promotional bag give away.

3. Duffle Bags To Sprint Into Sporting Events

Customising promotional merchandise can leave a lasting and positive impression with your customers. This could then, in turn, result in the customer recommending you to others and thus an increase in sales. It’s not only the items you put in the promotional bag you need to consider, but your target market also needs to be accounted for too.

Considering who your target market is could change the hold perspective as to which bag you use in your promotional campaign. For example, a duffle bag probably won't be appreciated by people who don't partake in sport and exercise. But a sports team, on the other hand, would use this bag regularly.

4. Laptop Bags To Tick All The Boxes

You need to consider what the client will need to carry around in the promotional bags. If you're targeting an office worker or university student, they're likely to carry a laptop or documents. In order to carry their laptops and paperwork, they will need a bag to put the laptop in, so the Faversham laptop backpack would be very well suited.

As you can see there are so many different types of promotional bags that can be customised to suit any target market. Be different, be brave, and move away from traditional plastic carrier bags with more desirable branded bags.

To stand out and make a difference with your printed bag, go that extra mile and see our promotional bags that are ready to be printed with your company branding.
