Your Printed Bags could end up travelling the World

Printed bags or backpacks are primarily identified with students as a means to transport educational material to and from school. However, summer is upon us and students hang up their printed educational bags and tend to swap them for travelling bags.

Most students, after a long study period, take the opportunity to travel over the summer months or even longer. The more popular places to go travelling include Bangladesh, New York City, Paris, Argentina, Naples, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

Different Types Of Bags To Take Travelling

When going travelling we can only take the bare essentials with us as we don’t want to be carrying around heavy luggage all day. Common essentials to take with you travelling consist of passport, phone, money, camera, MP3 player, batteries, towel, map, notebook and pen, flask, wet wipes, and most importantly some sort of first aid kit. To carry these items when travelling students often use backpacks.

Larger bags which are commonly used when going travelling, carry loads over 10kg. These bags offload the largest part of their weight onto padded hip belts, this leaves the shoulder straps mainly for stabilising the load. This helps increase agility, balance, and the potential to carry more. The Army often take advantage of this and use large bags to run with to train.

Where Did The Backpack Originate From?

Bags and backpacks like many things have a bit of history behind them. A form of backpack was used in ancient times. Hunters used bags carried on their backs to carry larger game and other types of prey as an easier way of transporting. The word used before backpack was rucksack, which was used mainly in the British and American Army. Rucksack derived its name from German words ‘de Rucken’ which means ‘the back’ and 'sack' for' bag'.

The main point to any bag throughout history, whether it’s small or large is to make carrying belongings easier for the carrier. A printed bag has an extra use, it can be used as an advertising platform. So it can carry belongings and a logo, taking the weight off your mind.
