7 Best Drawstring Bags for Every Occasion

When it comes to promotional products, you can never go wrong with a custom bag—especially a versatile drawstring style. Drawstring bags are a low-cost, high-impact way to get your brand out there. In fact, the 2023 Advertising Specialty Institute ad impressions study found that 43% of consumers would keep and use a promotional bag for at least two years. This means that with one custom drawstring bag, you could earn up to 1,940 impressions!  

And with so many types of drawstring bags to choose from, there’s truly a perfect style for every industry and occasion. Whether you’re organizing a charitable fun run, want swag to sell in your merch shop, or just want to get more eyes on your logo, here are 7 of the best drawstring bags you can customize.  

Cotton Drawstring Bags

The most common type of drawstring bag is usually made from polyester or non-woven material…so choosing a cotton style is a natural way to stand out from the crowd. Go for a full color style, like this one, for an extra dose of vibrant visibility.  

Sporty Drawstring Backpacks

Searching for the perfect fitness freebie or marathon giveaway? Choose a custom drawstring bag that has sporty style and convenient features for anyone who’s always on the go. Think: high—visibility reflective stripes; mesh water bottle sleeves; and exterior pockets for additional storage.  

RPET & Recycled Drawstring Bags

If you want to show customers that you prioritize recycled and responsibly sourced products, choose a drawstring bag that’s made from RPET or recycled cotton.  

Insulated Drawstring Backpacks

Choose an insulated drawstring bag style to take a typically standard giveaway item to a whole new level. An insulated drawstring bag, like this one, is perfect for everything from corporate picnics to employee lunches.  

Drawstring Tote Bags

The best bags are the ones customers will want to use again and again. So, give them more options for carrying your custom bags by choosing a style that features top handles *and* backpack straps. After all, twice as many handles makes this bag twice as useful—so you’ll score even more visibility for your brand.  

Novelty Drawstring Bags

Want a drawstring bag with your logo that’ll pack an extra punch? Explore novelty styles, like tie-dye, rainbow stripe, camo print, or iridescent, to make your swag stand out even more.  

Drawstring Gift Bags

Small drawstring pouches also make great gift bags or packaging options for retail businesses. Swap out your plastic or paper packaging for something your customers can use again and again.
