Printed cotton bags

Printed cotton bags are an essential resource in all kinds of events: they are the ideal alternative for those who are looking for a textile accessory that will fit everyone so you can forget about size stock problems.

Customised tote bags are really appreciated because of their usefulness and attractive price, that’s why so many little shops and retail stores are already replacing plastic bags for these fabric bags.

Most of the personalised cotton bags are printed in screen printing, which is a perfect technique for simple designs and logos with plain colours.

In order to print tote bags, it is necessary to have in mind that each colour of the design is printed separately, and there is a technical cost for each one, therefore the fewer colours you use, the more economic your order will be!

So, if your customised cotton tote bags are for resell as merchandising or to raise founds, the best choice is an eye-catching design with no more than 1-2 colours, this ensures you the best value for money you can get.

For example, these bags were printed as part of the personalised merchandise for the indie-folk group Taiacore, reproducing the cover of their last album. As you can see, all the fine small lines of their cover album look just perfect:


An original packaging is definitely important in all types of shops, business and brands. If you are looking for a good, nice and cheap packaging, these custom fabric bags will make your day!


These personalised cotton sachets are also perfect as a wedding gifts: you can give it to your guests with some cute present inside, like sweets, scented candles or a small notebook.

Personalised Tote Bags for Charities

Today we bring you these wonderful personalised tote bags for charities which were created through a superb collaborative work between the illustrator Supersinglemami and the NGO Kolam.

Custom tote bags, designed by Supersinglemami, sold to raise money for disadvantaged families in India.

Raquel y Víctor se ponen en contacto conmigo con un email, explicándome el porqué de Kolam, y el porqué necesitan fondos para sus tres proyectos que actualmente están llevando a cabo en Udaipur (Rajasthan, India). A mi se me cae la baba con este tipo de personas que van, ven y actúan, no puedo hacer nada más que admirarlos por su valentía y decir sí a lo que necesiten de mi para ayudar, en este caso, ayudar a equipar un colegio de Gorana, situado en una zona rural muy pobre, este es el destino del dinero recaudado de estas totebags diseñadas por mi, con las que este verano nos vamos a la playa … Espero que os gusten y que como a mi os hagan sentir un poquito más orgullosas de vosotras mismas por el hecho de contribuir a que la vida de alguien ( y en especial de alguna madre) que no conoces de nada, pero que no tiene tanta suerte como tu, mejore … Podéis colaborar comprando la totebag en la tienda de @Ong_kolam Feliz día suertudas! #ONG_kolam #supersinglemami #totebag

The charity organisation Kolam was established in 2015 and has since produced 3 marvellous projects in India:

  • Slums in Udaipur: an adoption project that includes educating children in difficult economic situations or in distress along with a continuous review and family support.
  • Planting the future: educating and training people in farming as well as bring in the tools necessary to grow crops in two villages of extreme poverty: Khardi and Parevi.
  • Friends of Gorana school: an official school with 10 qualified teachers and 235 students fighting for their future to help bring their generation out of the vicious cycle of poverty.

It’s this last project that will receive the funds collected by these excellently designed charity tote bags. We know that cotton tote bags are great for many reasons; they’re practical, comfortable and recyclable but on top of that if they’re for charity, what could really be better?

Designed charity tote bags

In order to print multicoloured designs on to garments or any design with many colours or shading, we offer quadritrans, our excellent classic textile transfer service.

Why is Quadritrans so excellent, you ask?

Well, first it allows us to print photos and designs with no colour limits meaning we can print just about any image! Also, it’s very resistant and durable as well as being less obvious to the touch than other personalisation techniques, such as CAD-cut vinyl.

Custom tote bags

The bag chosen for this order was the Joytex Riad model:

  • 100% cotton
  • Natural beige colour but also with other colours available
  • 140gr/m2
  • With two long straps (30cm approx.) for carrying on the shoulder
  • With a Confidence in textiles certificate which assures that no toxic substances or harmful colourants have been used in the manufacturing to ensure the safety and security of our environment and of our skin.

Personalised merchandising

Today we’ve decided to show you some of the products created for an Italian holiday village in Cape Verde – beautiful, right? Personalised merchandising is an ideal method of advertising for companies, associations, museums or attractions and events. All your clients will be really happy taking home their personalised gift.

Personalised merchandising

Out client chose to produce a series of personalised T-shirts in various different models: for men, women and kids with 1-colour screen-printing. Although you may think that sounds boring at first, it’s nothing of the sort with the changing colours of both the printing and the T-shirt, there really is a range of varied customised garments within the order.

Remember that there is a cost for each colour in the design and then if you choose to alternate the colours, there is also a fixed cost for each colour change. Sometimes a simple colour change can really make an order stand out, especially when combining the colour changes with a contrasting T-shirt colour.

Personalised t-shirts
Screen-printing tees

The T-shirt in question here is the high-quality t-shirt Gildan Ultra-T, made of resistant preshrunk cotton jersey, 205gr/m2.

Elegant personalised T-shirts and bags

When someone says personalised T-shirts or customised bags perhaps you think of conference giveaways or one-day events, university socials, hen nights etc. Maybe you’re not so familiar with the world of elegant personalised T-shirts and bags so this week we’ve brought you some examples to broaden your horizons…

The first of which is a personalised T-shirt with rhinestone. For those of you who’ve not heard of rhinestone printing before, you may know it as the Swarovski technique or strass.

Personalised t-shirts rhinestone
Rhinestone tees

As you can see, this technique gives customised T-shirts a touch of elegance. You can personalise them with designs, texts or logos. To be able to calculate a quote using rhinestone we need you to send us your completed design, logo or slogan in order for us to count the stones needed. We’re able to reproduce images of all different sizes, shapes and colours, allowing you to create colourful, fashionable garments for whatever your needs.

Cuccio, like many other designer retailers, perfume brands, jewellers, cosmetic stores etc. chose to use diamante transfers for their company uniforms.

Personalise t-shirts with rhinestone
Customised t-shirts

There are some things to consider with this printing method:

  • It can be used on various materials: cotton, polyester, blends, single jersey stitching…
  • All garments must be washed inside-out in cold water.
  • Delivery time can range from 12-21 days.
  • The minimum order is 10 items with the same design.

Not only can we personalise T-shirts with rhinestone but we can also use it on sweatshirts, bags etc. And don’t forget the endless possibilities when you combine different techniques!

Our second example is a very fashionable personalised bag for a young Spanish jewellery designer: Abril Ribera. At the moment as you may have noticed, these shopping bags are all the rage and they’re even better when they’ve been personalised with a fantastic design like this one in 1-colour screen-printing.

Customised bags golden ink
Gold screen-printing

These tote bags were a great choice to contrast this simple yet effective logo printed in gold screen-printing, producing a very professional, elegant result, ideal for up-and-coming designers.

When printing with either gold or silver screen-printing, bear in mind that the price is slightly more expensive than normal colour screen-printing.

Fashionable personalised bag
Customised tote bags

Not only can we create great promotional items with screen-printed designs but we can also offer more complex designs with other techniques such as digital transfer or classic transfer for large orders.

Given the recent rise in online sales and alternative, hipster style, these shopping bags are really flying off the shelves so if you’ve got an idea for a design, why not send it to us so we can send you a personalised quote for your very own customised tote bags. Take a look at our online bag catalogue for more inspiration.

These stylish shoulder bags for personalising are great for men and women, meaning they can be used both for promotional giveaways, corporate gifts and designers’ textile lines. Especially, bearing in mind they’re available in 4 discreet colours – perfect for conferences or trade shows.

Sols easy shoulder bag
Shoulder bags for personalising

These trendy wallet bags have both an outside pocket and a central zipped compartment for all your daily necessities: wallet or purse, phone, keys, lipstick, headphones etc. Also they can be adapted to the appropriate size with the adjustable shoulder strap.

This italian client chose to print their association’s logo in CAD-cut vinyl as they wanted to include various colours – different tones of blue, yellow and the italian flag with the typical green, white and red. If your design or club logo contains many colours and you don’t want to simplify it, don’t hesitate to send us a picture and we’ll let you know the best personalisation technique for your specific design.

Customised shoulder bags

Often CAD-cut vinyl is thought of as the cheapest, low quality printing technique but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality it has come a long way in recent years meaning it is now a fairly long-lasting, top quality printing method.

CAD-cut vinyl
Bags CAD-cut vinyl

Another advantage is that we’re able to print using CAD-cut vinyl on all types of garments including bags, t-shirts, jumpers, sports wear, work wear, bandanas etc.

As you can see from this example, although it is a textile printing technique which is noticeable to the touch, the result is not so obviously plastic as people think which means it can be used for both small orders of personalised garments for private use and large orders for advertising and publicity events.
