Customizations: Screen Printing, Iron On, Heat Transfer, and Embroidery

        Customized tote bags are one of the most popular promotional products. There is almost no business that does not have customized tote bags. However, many employers are concerned about how difficult to have their company's logo or name on a promotional tote bag. It is absolutely so easy to do any type of customization to promotional tote bags. It is also the cheapest and the most effective way to promote a company. There are various ways to get a tote bag customized. The most commonly known techniques are screen printing, iron on, heat transfer, and embroidery.

Moreover, promotional tote bags' material allows any complicated logos to be customized.

What is the Difference Between Cotton Tote Bags and Canvas Tote Bags?

           Many people become indecisive about every field that they are unfamiliar with; no one wants to spend a long time to gather information in order to decide. That is why we would like to make the difference between cotton and canvas tote bags crystal-clear. 

Cotton Tote Bags:

          Indeed, most people know that cotton is one of the oldest material that has been used for decades. Hence, cotton is the best material to make a bag compared to plastic, considering its environmental aspects. Cotton totes bags are also more durable and reusable tote bags.They are cheaper in the long run and good for any kind of shoppings. Any kind of logo, heat transfer, iron on, and screen print can be done easily on a cotton tote bag's surface because the cotton material is resistant to over 350 Fahrenheit. Furthermore, they are perfect for any kind of embroideries because of their soft cotton material.  An average size cotton tote bag weights about 2-6 oz.

Canvas Tote Bags:

           Canvas cotton bags are more sturdy compared to cotton bags because canvas tote bags are intensely sewn during their manufacturing stage. Hence, they can carry heavier items and last more years compared to cotton tote bags. Additional to what cotton tote bags can carry, canvas tote bags can even carry large size books. Because of its durable material, canvas totes are also perfect for detailed logos. Heat transfer, iron on, and screen print can be done easily. The canvas material is durable to more than 350 Fahrenheit. Moreover, their canvas material is excellent for any kind of embroideries. An average size canvas bag weights about 6-12 oz.

Using promotional bags to promote your business

When using promotional items to promote your business, there are several things you want to keep in mind. You want to choose an item that is useful so that it will be utilized by the one who receives the item. It is equally important that your item be relative to the type of business that you own.

A mouse pad will be seen by a variety of individuals, as it is in an accessible area. You will want to make sure that your company information is designed in a manor that is eye pleasing.

A high quality canvas tote bag is a fantastic promotional item, as it is an item that has the potential to reach hundreds of people. This type of item can be used in everyday life.

Individuals tend to place magnets on their refrigerators, which is a great place to remind them of the products and services that you offer. Plus, they can find your company information easily without having to search for it.

What does the weight (e.g. 6-oz, 12-oz canvas) of a cotton tote bag mean?

When you are looking at the various blank tote bags to use for your printing or embroidery project, you will notice that most of them have some weight associated with them. And this will vary greatly by the type of bags. You might see a cotton tote bag that is 6-oz (ounce) or 8-oz. Or a canvas tote bag that is 10-oz or 12-oz. And you probably have asked yourself — well, what does this mean?

The simple answer is that is how much one square yard of material (used to make that piece of bag) weighs. This is pretty simple because it doesn’t make any difference if it is a mini tote bag or a Jumbo size laundry bag. The measurement of one square yard of material does not change.

Now what is not so simple is that this weight (the number of ounces) is based upon the averaged weight across all colors. Because dark colors require more dye than say light colored or white material, the darker colors tend to weight a little bit more (the more dye the more weight is added to the fabric). So while a piece of bag may be listed at 6-oz, the item in dark color may be as much as 6.5-oz and white could be 5.8-oz or less.

The other not so simple item is that normally you would think the heavier the material thicker and stronger it would be. This is not necessarily true. There are different processes used in creating cotton fibers and sometimes a lighter weight piece of apparel might be stronger and more durable than a heavier weight piece.

Effectively Using Promotional Items To Market Your Business

Marketing plays a huge role in the success of your business. Let’s face it, without customers to buy your products or services, your business will not thrive. Therefore, it is necessary that you take the appropriate actions to show appreciation towards them. 

Giving away promotional items are the perfect way to gain new customers, and say thank you to current ones. However, you want to make sure that you use these promotional items to market your business effectively. Otherwise, your money spent on these items could result in failure.

Here are some tips on using promotional items, and which ones are most popular among the consumer.

Top Promotional Items

Everyone loves getting something for free. Here are the top ten promotional gifts that customers love to receive.

  1. Personalized T-Shirts or Jackets
  2. Multi-Tools and Multi-Function items
  3. Custom Bobble Heads
  4. Mood and Color-Changing Products
  5. Calendars/pens/paper
  6. Stress Balls and Stress Figures
  7. Koozies
  8. Water Bottles and Travel Mugs
  9. Canvas tote bags
  10. Custom Golf Balls and Golf Accessories

These are things that customers look forward to receiving at special events or even just upon visiting your business. Promotional tote bags happen to be a number one gift. It is a gift that can be used time and time again.

Using Promotional Items Effectively

There are some important factors to remember when utilizing promotional items. Since you have to invest money in these types of items you want to make sure that you get the most out of them. Here are some things to think about before deciding on which promotional item to go with.

  • Useful Items: Customers love when they get something that they can utilize in their daily life. Plus, it just makes sense to give them something that they will use often. You have a better chance of reaching more clientele if they continuously use a product with your name on it. Think about what you would like to receive. Chances are, if you would not use your promotional gift then neither will your customer. Spending money on useful items will better your chances of gaining new customers and satisfying current ones.
  • Quality: Nothing is worse than receiving a promotional item that is poor quality. These types of items will go straight to the trash and are a waste of your time and energy. While you are buying promotional items on a budget, you also want those items to make a lasting impression. If you give poor quality, customers will not be impressed. If you provide a quality gift, they will remember you. Don’t jeopardize quality to save a few bucks. There are nice items that will fit your promotional budget.
  • Design: Since your item will be representing your business, you want to make sure the design is clean and appealing. Customers will use a promotional item that has a good design. No one wants to look tacky, so keep this in mind when deciding on your promotional item design. Also, you will probably want to incorporate your logo, or enhance your business information somehow on the promotional item.
  • Targeting: When deciding on how you will give away your promotional items you want to think quality over quantity. You want to target customers who need and want your products or services. This factor will also help you determine what type of promotional item to go with. For example, you would not go to a men's event to promote makeup items. So, you need to target women in this case. This will help you decide on what items women enjoy receiving, and finding quality events to give them away.

Learning to market your promotional items effectively will help you gain new customers, say thank you to current customers, and help you save time and money with your promotional marketing efforts.
