The company added new bags to its popular Cotton/Jute Tote collection, along with a new Adventure Tote made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, non-woven Budget Totes, Ribbon-Handle Matte Eurototes, and several new paper bag styles. BAG MAKERS also added Direct Print to its imprint capabilities for select paper bags, new Digital Full-Color Bag sizes and styles, and more ribbon and bow options.
