What is Calico & Why is it Ideal for Bags?

Thursday, 5 December 2019 2:40:10 PM Australia/Sydney

You might have noticed a recent trend towards logo printed calico bags in Australia. Part of this owes to the ban on single-use plastic bags in supermarkets, but there are a lot of options to replace these disposable items. The reason custom calico bags are leading the pack is the fact they're made from a natural fibre, cotton.

Promotional Cotton Bag Black

Why is Cotton Such a Popular Material?

Cotton calico is a popular option for shopping and tote bags because cotton is a natural material that lasts a long time, but doesn't cost a huge amount of money. Woven from unbleached cotton materials (often not fully processed) cotton calico has a rustic look that is popular among Aussie consumers for its Earthy look and soft feel. Calico also holds ink well, making it an ideal choice for promotional bags.

Why is Calico an Ideal Bag Fabric?

Calico is a lightweight material which is why it is a preferred option for grocery and shopping bags. Many Aussies prefer to carry calico bags as their go-to shopping option because they add no real weight to handbags or backpacks when stowed. However, the benefits of calico don't end there! Calico is a sturdy material that can withstand considerable weight for its depth and much of this owes to the fact that it is made of natural fibres. The other benefit of natural fibres is they're minimally processed, unlike bags made from artificial materials. With an increasing number of Aussies concerned about the impact they have on the environment, calico bags made from sustainably sourced cotton are hot!

Join The Revolution

Australian consumers love cotton calico bags so if you're looking to promote your brand, why not check out our range of cotton bags that come individually printed with your logo design. Your brand will look amazing and gain exposure if the bags are distributed at an event or as part of a marketing campaign!

Friday, 25 October 2019 4:24:52 PM Australia/Sydney

The summer heatwave can really affect your cold drinks. Lucky for you, our custom cooler bags keep your beverages chilled and make sure that you keep hydrated. Moreover, these bags are a great gift to ensure that your friends, family, clients and staff also keep cool!

promotional cooler bags with your logo

Hands-Free Utility

There’s no way that you can transport your drinks from your home to the beach without a cooler bag. Imagine having to carry a bag of ice just to make sure your beverages don’t evaporate in the summer sun. Our cooler bags are the ideal gift to make sure that you and your colleagues can rest easy knowing that your drinks will remain at the perfect temperature.

More Than Just a Drink Bag

Depending on the occasion, larger cooler bags can serve a purpose beyond just transporting drinks. In this hot weather, food also needs to be kept cool to prevent it from spoiling too fast. If your friends are planning on a picnic this summer, consider gifting them this perfect cooler bag.

Use All Year Round

Even though these bags work best during the summer, they can be used all year round! You never know when the temperatures may spike, and you will need a reliable cooler bag to keep your beverages or food chilled. If you are going to need such a bag, surely your friends, family, clients and staff will too. Just think about everyone carrying this bag with your logo emblazoned across the front. Now that is what I call cool promotion!

Jute and Calico Promotional Bags

Monday, 17 June 2019 9:04:41 AM Australia/Sydney

With environmental concerns becoming more of a pressing issue each day, it is imperative that everyone take some sort of action – no matter how small. For this reason, PromotionalBagsDirect is pushing for the use of eco-friendly products through jute and calico bags to act as a means of promotion as well as sending a message to help the environment. Here are our top three environmentally positive bags.

Promotional Eco-Friendly Bags

Personalised Compact Jute Tote Bags

Jute tote bags are created from jute which is a natural vegetable fibre. Its properties make it sturdy, breathable and versatile. Jute tote bags have risen to prominence as the best alternative to plastic shopping bags as they are able to carry substantial weight without compromising the quality of the items inside, especially fruit and vegetables. The compact jute tote bag comes in a square shape for ample room to customise with your unique brand or logo.

Customisable Scoop Coloured Calico Bags

Calico bags are the cotton version of jute tote bags! They offer similar durability and reusability but have garnered further use than shopping. These are the types of bags you will typically see at business events, local council meetings or school/university expo days. These scoop coloured calico bags come in a variety of colours with a wide handle for easy use and are a great way to have your brand stand out.

Branded Carry Bags Made from Recycled Bottles

These recycled carry bags are a great way to know that you are using a product that is made from 100% PET recycled material. This bag offers a bit more stability than the previous two with its additional compartments and woven dual carrying handles. This is a reliable bag designed for extended periods of use. Not to mention it has a lot of space to decorate your brand with

Need bags for your upcoming trade show, conference, or open day? We've got a fantastc variety to meet any bulk promotional bag needs you might have.

Custom Branded Event Bags for Australians

Best Event Bags With Branding

Promotional Calico Event Bags

Replace the traditional trade show bag with these amazing, environmentally friendly, cotton bags. These are affordable and lightweight which renders them a great replacement to the traditional non-woven trade show bag. There’s so many printing options available on these, let alone choosing the bag itself. The most popular are the long handled bags which are great to fill with goodies then carry on your shoulder leaving both hands free. This promotes your business as caring about the environment, something that more and more people are prioritising everyday.

Beach Style Logo Branded Totes

It’s no shock that we’re approaching summer, the seas are getting warmer and the beaches are getting busier. With that comes an increased demand for new, stylish beach bags. Now there is no need to look further as we have a great selection of beach bags in stock ready to be tailored to you and shipped out across Australia! Not near a beach this summer, then I feel very sorry for you, BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t get the most out of these fab bags. A great idea is to fill them with blankets and goodies for a gorgeous picnic date at a local park with loved ones (and this way you can avoid annoying sand)!

Custom Branded Student Backsacks

Another great option for trade shows and large scale events are these lightweight backpacks! They take up barely any room so are great to order in bulk and are easy to transport to your trade events! Fill them with more promotional goodies or just slip a business card in each, they are easy to carry and by being worn on the back they become an amazing walking advert for your business! These can also be great for gyms and schools to pack in that gym kit for sports lessons or a quick workout at the end of a long day!

Branded Cooler Bags for a Chill Spring

Monday, 20 August 2018 12:12:19 PM Australia/Sydney

It’s time to shake off the frost of winter and start getting ready to embrace the sun. The flowers are starting to bloom, and the smell of barbeques are just starting to poke their head out.

Spring has always been a time of re-growth, so why not take this perfect opportunity to re-brand. A new logo, or even a new design to keep your business fresh and moving with the seasons. Out with the old, in with the new.

Promotional Cooler Bags With Your Logo Branding

To help with building your new identity, and to make sure you are putting your best foot forward, anchor your brand’s character with you own customised cooler bag. The advantage of this is that cooler bags are useful items that will be kept and used often throughout the year, but in these warmer months specifically. By personalising and logo branding your cooler bags, you are getting your company’s name out there and increasing visibility.

Beach Time Logo Cooler Bags

Might I suggest the following models for your consideration:

  • The Pinga Cooler Bag not only is a large 11L cooler, but it can also be used as a seat, meaning you won’t have to haul an esky AND a lawn chair with you, making it more likely for whoever gets this to make it a staple in their barbeque needs.

  • The Eccles Lunch Cooler Bag. If like me, you were used to carrying your lunch around in disposable plastic bags from the grocery store, you might be in need of finding a new way to carry your lunch to work that is more environmentally friendly.  

Do yourself and your business a favour. Have a look at your current branding, and have a look at what a promotional cooler bag can do for you.
