Promotional Bags to carry Christmas shopping

With Christmas not far away, most people will be purchasing their Christmas shopping over the next few weeks and how will you carry your shopping? With promotional shopping bags of course!

The UK Population Is Still Using The High Street

Figures show that whilst online shopping has increased, people are still using the high street to purchase their Christmas shopping. Now the recession is over, people are likely to be more inclined to spend out on their Christmas presents, which means that towns are likely to be busier.

Sales on the high street last year showed that shopping rose by 0.6% in December 2011, judging by the bad year retailers had experienced, this was considered to be a real 'boom'. For many retailers, 2012 hasn't been a bad year, so many are expecting sales in December to rise even further.

So, why not use Christmas shopping habits as the basis for the promotional products you purchase?

Why Should You Choose Promotional Bags For Your Christmas Campaigns?

Promotional bags are said to have a longer life than many other promotional products. This is largely because of their usefulness. We predict that everyone in the UK uses a bag at least once a week if not once a day! There is nothing better that exists to carry all of your belongings and shopping. According to a recent survey, promotional bags have a shelf life of approximately eight months. This is because they are durable and can withstand a considerable amount of weight.

Most of the bags you are given by high street shops for free are not able to carry a significant amount of weight. It's an age old problem, why create a carrier bag which is not strong enough to hold all of your shopping? How many times have you packed a bag in a shop to find it breaks as soon as you walk out? Quite often is probably the answer. So why not assist with this problem by providing your customers with promotional bags?

Different Styles Of Printed Bags

There are many different designs of promotional bags you can choose from, from the more expensive holdalls and rucksacks to the smart but simple tote bags.

Take our twin handle roll-up backpack pictured below, for example, these eye-catching bags are great for your clients that like the stylish things in life. Featuring your custom design embroided for long-lasting exposure.

Tote bags have become very popular, they fold up small enough to fit in your handbag or pocket so can be easily whipped out whenever you purchase any shopping. These are great for the environment as they are encouraging people to use less plastic bags by reusing their new, stylish tote bag. 

For example, our printed cotton tote bag featured below, manufactured from natural cotton and printed with your design in up to full colour.
