Promotional Drawstring Bags Everyone Will Love

Drawstring bags in bulk are a branding home run. What makes them so great? They’re affordable, extremely visible, and usually around where good times are being had, like sporting events, festivals, field trips, farmers markets, and outdoor gatherings of all kinds. Below we answer your top questions, and unpack (get it?) the best promotional drawstring bag for your small business or special event.

What Are Drawstring Bags?

Think of a backpack without a base camp or attempt at the summit. Think of a quick carry-all without the rolling wheels. Think of a grab and go that won’t weigh you down. Personalized drawstring bags in bulk come to the rescue for your recipients by being lightweight, straightforward, and just right for carrying an extra water bottle, hoodie, snacks, phone, or other daily essentials as they’re out and about. 

They have a dual-function drawstring close where the drawstring doubles as shoulder straps that can be worn over both shoulders or slung over one. Sometimes a drawstring bag will feature an outside pocket or a fancy fold-up style, but the typical promotional drawstring bag offers an unlined, easy-close, usually inexpensive bag for carrying extras hands-free while your branding stands out on the back of every recipient. Drawstring bags offer low cost and high visibility for your small business or special event. 

What Are Drawstring Bags Used For?

Most personalized drawstring bags in bulk are intended for, and priced to support, a specific sports season, or function (like going to the gym or crafting class), or special event (like trick or treating, attending a beach party, or going on a field trip or scavenger hunt). Think of a drawstring bag for laundry day, sleepovers, sporting events, and public venues. When shopping for your promotional drawstring bag, pick one that suits your branding style and budget.

What Types Of Drawstring Bags Are Washable?

It’s best to spot clean and air dry your promotional drawstring bags. Though some bags are made of washable material, including polyester or cotton, the material is subject to shrinkage, your customized imprint will last longer if exposure to hot water and hot air is minimized, and a bag whose drawstring has squirmed out of its casing in the wash makes for a drawstring bag whose time has come and gone. 

What Materials Are Drawstring Bags in Bulk Made Of?  

Most drawstring bags are made of polyester, plastic, vinyl (great for stadiums and amusement parks) or cotton. Here’s an example of each:

Polyester Drawstring Bag with Reflective Stripes: This polyester bag features two reflective strips that keep your recipients visible at night, plus grab handles on top in addition to drawstring straps, for toting under any circumstances.

Clear Game Drawstring Backpack: This vinyl bag is see-through and complies with NFL Bag Policies and NFL regulations so you can take this with you to the games.

What Features Are Most Popular on Bulk Drawstring Bags?

There are different types of drawstring bags  for every occasion, style, and budget. You can find everything from a simple, no-frills Non Woven Sports Pack to a Strand™ LED Light Drawstring Backpack, and everything in between. Popular design features might include a slit pocket, zipper pocket, reflective stripes, grab handle, or an earbud port. When it comes to finding the just-right bag at the just-right price, we like these winners:

Non Woven Sports Pack: This water-resistant sports pack is made of plastic that’s textured to feel like canvas.

Full Color Everyday Commuter Drawstring Backpack: This customized bag comes in bright colors, sports your logo in full color, and kicks up the drawstring backpack game with an earbud port and front zipper.

Polyester Drawstring Bag: Prepare your recipients for hands-free fun with this polyester drawstring bag with black trim. The low minimum order quantities mean you can advertise your message at events small and large and still stay within budget.

Brin Drawstring Bag: Fashion meets function, while price stays oh so low, with this drawstring bag with mesh bottle holder.

Full Color Christa Natural Cotton Drawstring Backpack: Your full color logo is sure to stand out on this simple, soft cotton backpack. 

How Do I Show Customer Appreciation at My Next Event?

At your next event, get your name out and about with custom drawstring bags in bulk. The price is low and the convenience factor is high. And one final pro for the humble cinch sack when your recipient’s on the move and out of pocket: Give your customer something to hold and you’re giving them a problem. Give them a promotional drawstring bag and voila! You’re giving them a solution. We’d call that: Branding at its best!
