If your company is hoping to ramp up its marketing efforts, branded merchandise can be a great route to take. Instead of relying on business cards or word-of-mouth advertising, you can increase your company’s brand exposure through distributing wholesale products.
Wholesale suppliers can create promotional merchandise that draws attention to your brand and logo with little effort on your part. This is especially true if your promotional products are something consumers would genuinely want to use from day to day. That’s why customized tote bags have become such a popular marketing tool in recent years.
Given their cost-effectiveness and how easy they are to buy in bulk, it makes sense that companies often offer free or discounted tote bags. However, this particular marketing tactic has other benefits as well.
So, why exactly should companies take advantage of custom tote bags?
- They are better for the planet - using reusable bags helps increase recycling and reduce waste
- They are environmentally friendly - the majority are made from recyclable materials
- They are a practical way to get noticed - personalized tote bags with your company’s logo/branding will help spread awareness about your brand, whilst adding value to people’s lives in a practical way
- They are a one-time cost - unlike online advertising, buying custom tote bags in bulk is a one-time investment - like the gift that keeps on giving!
- They are a long-term marketing strategy - reusable bags won’t be thrown away like a pen or pencil
- They make free brand ambassadors - by offering customers free or discounted custom tote bags, your company is essentially gaining free brand ambassadors
It is true that any apparel or accessories showcasing your logo will help spread awareness about your brand. Tote bags are especially effective, however, because they’re practical items most people use without much thought. From bringing groceries home from the store to traveling with kids, consumers frequently seem to be carrying something when going from place to place. Having a promotional tote bag helps them with that, while also showing off your company’s logo to anyone customers encounter up close or in passing.
The person using the custom tote bag will also come to associate your company with an item that regularly helps them. This positive association will spark loyalty with this consumer down the line. Research shows 90 percent of consumers are likely to purchase something from a company they’ve received a free gift from.
Part of the reason investing in custom tote bags is worthwhile is because of their longevity. Assuming your company buys from a supplier that uses quality material, a tote will be around for a long time. In some cases, end users will have such merchandise for years. That’s years that they’ll be marketing your company’s brand.
Given the small amount of time and money that goes into creating custom tote bags, this is a great deal for business owners. It certainly makes custom tote bags stand out against merchandise with a shorter shelf life.
By offering customers free or discounted custom tote bags, your company is essentially gaining free brand ambassadors. Rather than paying people to advertise your products and services, you’re having customers do it for free — and you’re giving them something in the process.
With tote bags, your brand isn’t catering to a specific demographic either. These items are gender neutral and used by consumers of all ages and backgrounds. By distributing gifts that appeal to several demographics, your brand will gain much more exposure than if you pursued the same strategy with an item that only caters to a certain type of person.

Step-By-Step Guide to Buying Personalized Tote Bags in Bulk:
- Material and fabric
- Exterior design
Personalized tote bags are a great way to promote events, market a business or simply show off your unique style. Made with long-lasting quality materials, our totes can be printed with any logo, design or slogan to help you get your message across. First things first, let’s start by helping you choose your bag style, fabric and color so you can get customizing.
Before you choose the style of your tote bag, you need to decide on its primary function. For example, if you’re going to be using your tote frequently for shopping or transporting your possessions, then you’ll want to choose a bag with pockets, an internal lining and perhaps durable handles to suit consistent use. You will also need to make sure the bag is washable (i.e. made from cotton or canvas).
On the other hand, if your totes are for a promotional event, appearance and affordability will be the most important factors in your decision. Let’s look at some of our different tote styles and the functions they serve.
Here is a quick background on some of our most popular styles and high-quality materials we use to help you make the right choice. Click here to see which of our custom bags are fully recyclable.
Canvas/Cotton: Cotton and canvas are two of the most called-upon fabrics for tote bags. These bags are designed to last and made with organic materials that can easily be washed. Our cotton and canvas bags are sturdy and durable enough to serve your everyday needs, whether you’re walking back from the grocery store or carrying books to and from the library. Reliable and Eco-forward, these bags are also easy to clean and are lightweight enough to be carried around with ease. Here are the following styles we offer:

Our vast selection of jute tote bags offers many different options when it comes to price, closure, color, and size. Whether you’re looking to show off your individual style or promote your brand or business, our recyclable jute bags will make a lasting impression. You can choose from black, navy blue, brown, green, maroon, purple, red, white, and green bags, then customize them with your own logo or design.
Our jute totes also come in material blends that include cotton, polyester and polypropylene, making them easy to wash and care for.

Our bags come in a range of colors, from black to gold and everything in between. When you design your personalized tote, you’ll have complete control over how you want your finished design to look, but we do know it can be difficult to know which colors to choose, which is why we’ve compiled a standard imprint colors chart to help you decide.
If you have text in your design, you will also need to choose a font. However, if you don’t have a font of your own to upload, you can choose from our selection of in-house fonts.
As one of the largest suppliers of promotional products in the country, Discount Mugs is proud to utilize state-of-the-art printing equipment to give each and every one of our products a professional finish. Our range of printing options and easy-to-use online tools make customization simple, helping you to achieve the perfect look for your tote bag. Here are some of the imprint methods we use for our customized totes.
- Screen Printing: This technique is best for bags with large designs that require one or two solid colors. It is a cost-effective method for large batch orders on plastic or fabric totes.
- Digital UV Printing: UV printing is mainly used on plastic to create high-quality images, logos and text. This method offers a lower production time and a professional result, but it is not compatible with fabric tote bags.
- Embroidery: Our embroidery or monograming service is ideal for corporate logos and other simple designs and allows for up to 16 different thread colors, adding an air of professionalism.
- Digital Direct to Garment (DTG): DTG printing is similar to printing on paper, in that it allows for unlimited colors and fine detailing, allowing us to print photographs and detailed designs onto fabric. This method is best for single tote bags and small batch orders.
- Heat Transfers: The heat transfer method is one of the most cost-effective techniques, and it's perfect for simple designs with two or three colors. Our heat transfers won't crack, peel or fade, and they are extremely durable for long-term use.
- Sublimation: With sublimation, you're not limited to one or two design areas – you can print detailed designs all over your bag if you want to. There are extensive color options and maximum detail, but you are limited to options in terms of material. Typically, only polyester materials can be sublimated, and fabric needs to be light in color for the process to work.
- Debossing: This is when an image, logo or text is imprinted onto an item, creating a depressed effect. You can either leave the debossed area untouched or fill it in with your desired ink color. This method is perfect for leather, faux leather and other synthetic materials.
