Custom Branded Cotton Bags

A firm promotional favourite, a cotton bag is a durable and inexpensive branded gift that can be used time and time again. Reusable and recyclable, promotional cotton tote bags will give your brand increased publicity whilst helping to reduce the need for single-use bags.

They come in a variety of cotton weights starting with a lightweight 3oz up to a thicker 7oz. Supplied in either their natural undyed shade or you can chose from a broad selection of stocked colours.

Express delivery can also be offered on a large selection of our cotton shopper bags.

We also stock canvas tote bags.

Q: Why should I use shopping bags for my marketing?

A: Shopping bags printed with your logo are an affordable way to get your branding noticed. They are the ideal business gift to give away at trade shows, events, exhibitions and conferences: a useful item to carry freebies and event literature in whilst getting your marketing message in front of a wide audience. Customised shopper bags are also perfect in retail environments, making sure your company is seen as professional and remembered, with high-quality screen printing for your graphics/company logo.

Promotional tote bags are both practical and durable, meaning they will be used time and time again. This increases the opportunities for your brand to be seen and advertised not only by the user but those who pass by too. There are many environmentally friendly options available to you, which in turn will help to reduce the wastage of single-use carriers.

We have a huge selection of personalised shopper bags, made with an assortment of materials, in a range of shades and sizes. From plastic carrier bags to bags for life, we can guide you to the most appropriate promotional shopper bag for your business needs and requirements.
