Quality Custom Printed Gift Bags For The Retail and Corporate Sector

All our custom printed gift bags come with the additional option of being able to add your own individual style to them. This could be anything from a unique shape to a variety of handles to add a memorable element.

Retailers Love Quality Custom Gift Bags

Custom printed gift bags are used for a variety of different purposes. Many retailers use this style of bag to provide a quality carrier bag for their customers, whilst also being able to display their logo on the side. This is particularly common for jewellery shops or boutiques.

Of course, they can also be used as gift bags in many other retail settings. In such cases, many businesses opt for a stylish but subtle design, rather than a company logo.

Corporate Gift Bags

An alternative use of custom printed gift bags is at a corporate event. Here you can provide your guests with a goody bag, whilst at the same time offer a subtle and impressive reminder to them who it was that put on the event.

Large Variety of Gift Bags

As our bags come in a number of different colours, we’re confident that you will be able to find the right base on which to put your customisations. Our gift bags can be made in a whole range of sizes, from extra small to extra large. This means that almost any size of gift can be catered for.

The gift bags that we have available are made from high quality 210 gsm paper, which means that they are strong and durable. For additional security, they also have a reinforced card on the top and bottom as standard. The glossy laminated finish used also means that there is a level of protection against damage from the weather as well. All our gift bags also come with a rope handle as standard, which makes carrying them safe and easy.
