See Frequently Asked Questions


  • I have a favorite photograph. Can you print it on my shopping bags?

    Absolutely. We offer full-color CMYK printing (sometimes called “color magic”) to achieve photographic designs, or other designs with numerous colors and color gradients. Full-color CMYK printing is not available for all bag styles, however. Check the “imprint” description of your chosen bag under the “styles” tab on this page if it’s a listed option. Full-color printing in this style does incur an additional charge.

    In order to prevent fuzzy or unclear prints, the photograph or artwork must be a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, AI or PSD file above 300 DPI. If you are unable to provide a high resolution photograph digital image meeting this specification, we cannot recommend printing a photograph onto your shopping bags.

    For full-color printing of designs that are not photographs but have many colors and/or color gradients – like logos or artwork – we still suggest that you provide a hi-resolution digital image meeting the above requirements. Our design team can provide complimentary assistance in in digitizing/vectorizing these images. Occasionally this process will add to your turnaround time.

  • How many colors can my design have?

    Most shopping bags that use plate printing or foil stamping that allows for up to five colors per side, but some bags can only do fewer.

    Full-color CMYK printing will allow you to print designs with unlimited colors and color gradients; check your chosen style to see if we can do full-color printing on your bag.

    Multiple-color printing may incur additional charges.

  • What colors can I choose for my logo or design?

    If you don’t see the color(s) for which you’re looking in our DIY, we might be able to pantone match then. Plate printing can do pantone-matched colors, but foil stamping and full-color printing cannot. Specially pantone-matched colors for plate printing will require an upcharge for each exact-match color.

    Full-color CMYK printing allows us to closely match your photos, but we cannot provide exact pantone match.

  • How big can my printed logo or design be?

    Each bag we offer has unique dimensions, so the maximum imprint area depends on the bag style you choose. Click the image of the style you’re interested in, and check the description underneath to see the available bag measurements and its maximum imprint area.

  • Can I print on both sides of by shopping bags?

    Yes. We welcome orders that with double-sided printing, and we can help you print unique designs on both sides — even with different color schemes. This will incur an additional charge.

  • What colors of paper/plastic do your shopping bags come in?

    Some bags are only listed on one color, but many bags we offer have a unique set of paper or plastic material colors from which you can choose. Click the image of the style you’re interested in, and check the description underneath to see the available options.

  • How thick is the paper/plastic material used to make your bags? And how durable is it?

    We use GSM to measure the weight of paper material used for our paper shopping bags and eurototes, and Mils (1/1000th of an inch) as a measure of plastic thickness.

    GSM is short for “grams per square meter”, and it is measure commonly used for paper weight. Heavier weights often mean thicker papers or plastics. 80 to 90 GSM is a typical office paper or inner-magazine weight. Our paper shopping bags are much stouter and range from 125 to 150 GSM, with our eurototes weighing in at about 180 GSM. That means no tears under normal circumstances.

    A Mil is 1/1000 of an inch. So 2.5 Mils is 0.0025 inches thick. Our plastic bags are thicker and more durable than the industry standard, ranging from 2.25 to 4.0 Mils as compared to .55 Mils. No more embarrassing spillouts in the parking lot that leave your brand blowing away from an upset customer.

  • What sizes do your bags come in?

    Each bag we offer has unique dimensions that dictate the maximum imprint area. Click the image of the style you’re interested in, and check the description underneath to see the available bag measurements and their corresponding maximum imprint areas.

  • I need a bigger/smaller bag than you offer. Can you make bags in other shapes/sizes?

    Here we only list the most popular bag sizes and styles available. In reality, there are hundreds of bag styles we can manufacture. Let us know your unique specifications, including shopping bag material, size, color, printing method, etc. We’ll respond with a list of options for you to look over.

  • What is “bleed” and do I need to do anything different because of it?

    Like most things involving custom clothing, this one’s best explained visually.

    Bleed and Safety Area

    Here’s an image where we’ve placed all the vital information and graphics on a sample image within a zone called “safety,” but extended the image past our desired “trim” point into the “bleed.” Read the following and you too will be able to speak industry jargon:


    This is the the perimeter around your image that will be cut off but gives us working space. Please include a .125″ bleed around your images — this would turn a 6″x4” item into 6.25”x4.25”.


    This is where we cut the “bleed” off to achieve the desired size. To ensure legibility and a better aesthetic vital graphics and text should not run up against the trim.


    This is where all vital graphics must go to guarantee their not being cut. “Safety” is .125” within your desired trim point; you’ll see we’ve placed all our vital text within this zone.


  • Can I get a digital proof of my design?

    Yes. At the end of the complementary design process, in which you’ll have unlimited control over the creative direction, you’ll receive a digital mockup. This is exactly what we’ll send to the factory and is provided within one to two business days after payment of your invoice or before if you request it. If it’s not exactly what you were imagining, send it back for further perfecting — and if it’s exactly what you want, send it to our factories immediately by approving it.

  • Can I request a physical sample before my full order is manufactured and shipped?

    We do not provide physical samples for shopping bag, but not to worry — what you you see in your digital mockup is exactly what you’ll get thanks to our advanced printing technology. In fact, it’s exactly what the factory receives when we make your order. As long as you like your mockup, you’re going to love the actual finished product.


  • How do you price your shopping totes?

    We put a lot of thought into our prices. Some of the more important variables are quantity, stylistic add-ons, size and “surface area” of the modifications  — i.e.,  how much printing or other graphically-related work does the project require? The person most equipped to give you a price for your product is your sale representative or our useful DIY — both can give you a detailed analysis of your quote and what things featured into our per-item price. Happy hunting!


  • Do you have a minimum order quantity for shopping totes?

    No, we don’t. If you’re looking for a no-minimum shopping tote producer, we’re one of the few folks who do that. Still, we recommend that if you’re going the through trouble to order one, you might as well have a dozen or more made — your sales representative would be happy to show how the per-price unit goes down tremendously after even ten items. That’s because we spread the cost of your unique custom tote’s set-up across however many that you order.

    That said, if you want something that’s truly one of a kind, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be happy to make a limited edition run of just one.

We're the best-in-class.
