Besides the list of prices that you can check here, it’s important to know that there will be no extra fee, screen fee, flash curing fee, or any other hidden fee. You will just need to purchase the minimum quantity of 24 tote bags and pay for the screen printing process. Your order will be shipped in 7 to 10 days. 

We can print up to five different colors on our cotton tote bags and drawstring bags. Then, after you send us your design (the acceptable formats are JPG, TIF, PSD, AI, BITMAP), we create the virtual sample for you to approve. Depending on your preference, you can opt for the design to be featured on a single side or both sides of the bag.

No worries: you can always cancel your order and get a refund before you approve the mock-up. On the other hand, we cannot accept returns, cancellations, or exchanges on personalized products, once the mock-up is approved.

The main advantage of digital printing is that it does not require a minimum order quantity. As for the fees and the shipping service, the same rules apply. Another benefit of choosing this printing process is that the number of colors that can be used for a single design is unlimited. 

Digital print service is also offered on a single side or both sides of the bag. However, you must double the number to accurately reflect the print order for a two-sided application. For instance, if you want your image on both sides of 12 bags, you will need to choose 24 as your print quantity. 

The preferred image formats are EPS, AI, CDR, PDF, and PNG with transparent/white background. You should email us your image as large as possible after you place the order. For that, you can use Dropbox, Google Drive, or WeTransfer. 

Also, remember that the larger the file, the better the print quality. So, considering you want us to print a design that is 10" in height, the image you send us must be at least this size. Otherwise, print quality might go down. For more information on how to care for your printed tote bag, read our previous article.

Like the other printing services we offer, embroidery is also available on a single side or both sides of the bag. However, the quantity must be doubled to benefit from the two-sided application. In addition, for the embroidery service, the minimum order quantity is 12 totes, and the design formats we work with are JPG, TIF, PSD, AI, and BITMAP.

However, there is one thing that you should keep in mind no matter which customization process you’ll choose: all artwork must be designed and/or provided by our customers. It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure that their artwork is within all legal parameters. We hold no liability regarding trademarks, copyrights, or IP rights while printing any artwork provided to us.
