Advantages of tote bags:
- High strength-to-weight ratio: Woven tote bags are manufactured with a knitting technique called plain weave. This produces lightweight bags which are strong enough to carry moderate heavy loads such as groceries.
- Washable: Tote bags can be easily washed in the washing machine alongside other laundry and do not require any special care. So if you use the bag for shopping, you need not worry about food stains and spills.
- Durable: Our tote bags are made of durable material which can last for several years without wear and tear.
- Eco-friendly: Canvas tote bags are created from cotton, which is a renewable resource. Its manufacturing has a low carbon footprint and minimal environmental impact. What’s more, they are reusable, so you can bring around your own tote bag everywhere and avoid usage of plastic bags! It’s a perfect way to show more care for the planet.

Tips to Design & Print your own Tote Bag
1. Choose your Tote Bag material wiselyBefore actually placing your orders for the tote bags, ensure that you have already read up on the advantages and disadvantages of each material (cotton canvas, non-woven, nylon) so that you can make the best decision according to your needs. For example, if you are looking for a stronger material then go for canvas tote bags. For one off promotional events, you may want to go for more lightweight material such as non-woven tote bags!
2. Heat Transfer vs Silk Screen PrintingHeat transfer printing is economical for small quantities and does not cost extra for colourful designs on your tote bags. However, there will be a thin vinyl layer on your tote bags. If you are going for larger quantities of tote bags, with solid colour designs, then you may want to opt for Silk Screen Printing instead. Silk Screen Printing is long lasting and economical in large quantities, especially for designs with less(1-2) colours.
3. Minimalist DesignMake sure that your tote bag design is minimalist looking, so as to prevent it from looking too overly cluttered. If you are choosing a coloured tote bag, avoid choosing non-monochrome colours so that your design can stand out more from the coloured background and better capture the attention of others!
