Bagging Up Big Sales
Bags have been around for all of human history. Cave people used animal pelts to carry rocks. The ancient Romans used bags to carry the vast amounts of wine they drank and people today use bags for everything from shopping on Madison Avenue to picking up seashells on the beach. Because of their widespread use, bags make great promotional items. Here are some ideas for that next big campaign.
The great Kenny Rogers said it best: You've got to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em. Most people think he's talking about cards, but really he's talking about bags. When they aren't holding the RPET Fold-Away Carry All from AAkron Line, end-users can fold it up. With a solid strap and rope closure, using this bag is definitely not a gamble.

Growing up, reversible jerseys were just about the coolest thing around. If you had a home Michael Jordan jersey that reversed into a pinstriped one, you basically were elected the mayor of Cool City. Now that MJ is retired, the coolest reversible item is the Stronghold Reversible Tote Bag from Ariel Premium Supply. For more information, visit www.arielpremium.com.
The best part about the XXL Non-Woven Reusable Tote from Crown Products is that it can be used over and over again. This gives your clients' logos plenty of exposure in all kinds of locations, like the grocery store, the gym and the beach. The bag includes a covered bottom insert and a one-color imprint.

Tigers, sports cars and old-timey bathing suits—what do these things all have in common? They have stripes and are awesome.

literally have a ball
Bags are great for conveniently carrying around a lot of items, but sometimes carrying the bag itself can be a hindrance. The 24-7 Bag from Flip & Tumble quickly packs into a tight ball, making it easy to carry around. Plus, if you have three or more, you can juggle them and impress your friends, co-workers and prospective dates. For more information, visit www.flipandtumble.com.
hit the road
In old movies, rugged travelers kept all of their stuff in a little handkerchief tied to a stick. Can you imagine how much easier life on the rails would be if they had the Vertex Tech Duffel from Gemline? They could keep everything in its multiple zippered pockets, then run after trains comfortably with its adjustable shoulder strap with non-slip pad. (Seriously, think of how many harmonicas they could fit in there!) For more information, visit www.gemline.com.
No matter how hard people might try to use their favorite basketball or soccer jersey as a bag, it just doesn't work. The big hole in the bottom doesn't allow for toting around groceries, but the Custom Jersey Tote from Greater China Industries gets the job done. Show your team spirit and don't drop your stuff.

With comfortable and cross-stitched handle straps, the Non-Woven Economy Grocery and Shopping Tote Bag from Innovation Line is super-strong for big grocery store trips.

where's that accent from?
People love accents. Cool people on-screen like James Bond, or Matthew McConaughey in "True Detective" have accents. The Cotton Canvas Tote with Gusset and Color Accent Handles from Jetline is pretty suave itself. Users will swoon over the colorful accent handles and strong cotton construction.
