We see ads on the television and hear them on the radio and then? Then we forget them. A bag branded with a message, logo or slogan is a practical and functional marketing item – this means that a promotional bag is one of the best ways to inscribe an idea or company name in prospective clients’ heads.

TYPES OF BAGS WE SUPPLY:


  • Shopping Bags
  • Sport Bags
  • Laptop Bags
  • Drawstring Bags
  • Backpacks
  • And more…

We supply most types off bags, colours and sizes that can be printed with the names and logos. These bags are the solution to your marketing questions and will ensure that you will get your money’s worth from this purchase. We have taken the time to explore the different bag options available to you. Our trained and friendly staff will help assist you along the way. 

4 CHOICES OF BAGS THAT ARE OUR FAVOURITES:



  • Long-Handle Shopping Bag ( Amcam62164 ) – Who would have thought that a simple tote bag could would have so much pizazz and promise? This eco-friendly promotional bag is one of our most versatile. It is made out of 100% cotton and is fully recyclable and reusable. Another great thing about this long-handle shopping bag is that the printing of logos, names and messages is optimal when it comes to designs and colours.

  • Eco-Friendly Greenvale Bag ( BAG-3501 ) – This is another one of our sustainable living bags, but this bag is made out of Jute. The material of this shopping bag makes this bag textured and structured. Due to the texture of the jute, printing is limited to one colour only, giving this bag a great minimalistic look.

  • Kansas Sports Bag ( BAG-3047 ) - The Kansas Sports Bag speaks for itself.  These bags are made of 600D material which means it is extremely durable and easily cleaned. It comes equipped with an adjustable strap and grab handles for easy carrying. The Kansas Sports Bag is printable and embroidery is possible too.
