Build A Bag
- IMAGINE YOUR BAG! — To get started, you’ll want to determine how your bag is going to be used, who will
receive it, what’s going inside, and how long you want it to last.
- DETERMINE BAG SIZE & FEATURES — Once you know the type and use of your special bag, determine its
dimensions and features. We offer many options including various closures, pockets, handles, and decorative accents.
- CHOOSE YOUR MATERIALS — We can build your bag using non-woven polypropylene, paper, plastic or
polyester materials, all based on your use and budget.
- PREPARE YOUR ARTWORK — As the most visual component of your project, create art files to size using
our Art Specifications . Let us also help you get started by providing a product template that will help
you with design and layout.
- CALL US WITH ANY QUESTIONS — We’ll be happy to provide more details, make product and design suggestions,
and offer a written quote. Then we’ll bring your bag to life!

All artwork must be pre-approved and additional art charges may apply. You will be provided a price quote prior to any art services being performed.

products. Due to printing dynamics, pre-production or color proofs are not available on all products. Call for details.
Spot color plate charges are $1.75 (G) per square inch for designs up to 11 x 15, unless otherwise noted. Larger imprint area designs, process color art,
halftones, art with fi ne screens, or large lay downs of ink are subject to review for charges. A plate is required for each color, each side.

Cancellations must be in writing and are subject to all incurred costs, including set-up, plate, and art charges.
