Who would have thought? Cloth bags are very much back in vogue. In the ‘70s and ‘80s, cloth bags were more a sign of environmental awareness, and the slogan “jute, not plastic” was imprinted on people’s collective memories. Today, versatile cloth bags are indeed more of a fashion accessory. Simple cotton bags with attractive designs now dominate the streets.

Loved by everyone: Housewives, students and hipsters
Cloth bags are an accessory popular across generations. They are now being used as fashion accessories, practical handbag substitutes, sports bags and shopping bags. Hipsters, housewives, students and anyone else like “you and I” can be seen carrying cloth bags. It may be because of their simplicity since there is only one compartment, where everything can be stowed. If the bag is not currently needed, it can just be folded up. If it gets dirty, it can be put in the washing machine.
For the environment’s sake
While the fashion aspect is something new, cloth bags have always been a way of protecting the environment when shopping. Because these bags don’t need to be disposed of after a short space of time, instead reliably holding all kinds of purchases. It can be said that the lifetime of one single cloth bag will easily exceed hundreds of plastic bags, assuming a new plastic bag is used for each purchase. The solid workmanship and strong cotton material mean even heavier items such as full bottles or milk cartons can be transported without any problem.
Witty sayings on bags
Cotton bags are particularly popular among younger carriers. As handy shoulder bags, they provide space for all kinds of statements. The Internet has lots of different examples of cloth bags printed with casual sayings, quotes or aphorisms. Perhaps these will inspire you to design your own bags, which you can print in top quality here at print24.com. If you have any questions about bag printing, you are welcome to call or email us.
Promotional bags for trade fairs or events
Anyone attending a trade fair with their company usually wants to give their potential customers something to take away with them as a reminder. So show your sense of trends and design with a striking printed cloth bag! Place your trade fair giveaways in a self-designed, professionally printed bag, allowing your customers to benefit from both the contents and the packaging. Using attractive motifs increases the probability of your bag being used in many other situations, e.g. shopping or at the next picnic, ensuring you’re always the topic of conversation!
Tip: Cloth bags are also a great idea for packaging wedding guest gifts. For example, use a great motif of the best day of your life, and have it printed on a bag.
7 different base colours
You can leave your first mark simply by selecting the bag colour. How about displaying your promotional message on a bright red background? Or working with complementary colours and having your text printed in orange on a pale green bag? In addition to these two colours, you can also choose from white, black, blue, red or yellow. You can create a particularly natural impression by selecting a plain bag.
With a size of 380 x 420 mm in the plain version and 380 x 400 mm in the colour version, our cloth bags provide lots of space for purchases or even files. Shoe boxes can also be easily carried. If you let us print your promotional bags, you’ll be offering your customers a product which reliably serves its purpose for shopping, daily purchases or uni, while also being a chic accessory! Their low weight (plain bag 65 g, colour bag 51.25 g) makes the bags super easy to stow away.
Our bag printing process
With our carrier bags you have the choice between digital printing and screen printing
This product uses the modern digital printing, in which relatively large areas can be printed on textiles. In this process without printing form, motifs are printed directly onto the textiles using an inkjet printer. The process makes individual prints possible even for single pieces. Furthermore, many colours and colour gradients can be displayed, since the printing technique is based on the so-called subtractive colour mixing of CMYK. We can print your bags one-sided or two-sided, each with a printing area of 260 x 320 mm. Before we can print the bags, the textile surface must be treated to ensure the ink sticks. To do this, we apply an “Odourless Fixation Agent” spray. The bags are then dried twice, for 6.5 minutes at a time, at 160°C in a special dryer. During printing, we use a Kornit Avalanche Hexa 1000 printer, based on the ink-jet process. This not only produces outstanding detail and bright colours but is also particularly environmentally friendly. We can print up to 250 bags per order for you. If you need larger quantities, please contact our customer service.
For this product, you can choose the screen printing process, which is a real all-rounder among the printing processes. Here the printing ink is printed through a finely woven fabric onto the corresponding textile using a rubber squeegee. The areas that should not be coloured in the final printed image are made colour-impermeable by means of a stencil at the corresponding mesh opening. The direct transfer to the fabric makes the haptics very neutral and, in contrast to alternative printing processes, feels less gummed. This ensures a high wearing comfort which does not affect the fabric feel even after repeated washing and ironing. The screen printing process, which is characterised by a long durability and resistance, produces rich colours with high covering power even on dark textiles. Especially for long runs, this process achieves top printing at comparatively low costs. In addition to printing with conventional inks, so-called spot colours can of course also be selected. For example, metallic colours such as gold, silver and bronze are considered exclusive spot colours with a, particularly high recognition value. Metallic colours are not created in CMYK but are pure Pantone colours. You should use the following Pantone colours to display these elements: Pantone 871 C (gold), Pantone 877 C (silver) and Pantone 876 C (bronze). Of course, all other metallic colours of the standard Formula Guide and Metallic Formula Guide from Pantone are also available.
Please note: Make sure the line width in your print order is at least 0.5 mm to enable an optimum result. If you have chosen text, the font size should be at least 11. Smaller fonts cannot be printed on the cloth.

Bags from controlled production
All cloth bags printed by print24.com have WRAP and Eco-Tex certificates. WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production) is an independent American organisation focused on permanently improving production conditions in the textile industry. Textiles bearing this certificate are not manufactured by children or forced labour. The organisation also ensures fair wages are paid for the work. The Eco-Tex certificate ensures all limit values for harmful substances are upheld when manufacturing cloth bags.
Top-quality cloth bags
All the cloth bags we print are not only distinguished by their excellent prints but also their material quality. For example, they feature an elastic, soft-touch cloth handle, making them particularly easy to hold. And with a grammage of 150 gsm, the cloth is particularly strong. All cloth bags are 100% cotton. The bags can be machine washed in temperatures of up to 40°C without any problem. However, they should not be bleached, dried in a dryer, or ironed hot.
Want a preview?
If you want to know what your motifs will look like on the printed bag, you can order a screenproof for a small surcharge. We’ll create a digital preview of your bag, and store this in your customer account. You can view the screenproof on your screen, and decide whether you want to have the bag printed. If you don’t like the result, you can change the order. However, please note that screenproofs are created in a resolution of 150 dpi, and are not true-colour. When would you like your bags printed? Get configuring now and choose the cloth bags you’d like to create using your motifs, sayings or logos!
We can incidentally also print other textile products for you, such as hoodies or even aprons. As one of Europe’s largest online print shops, we offer our customers a wide range of print products for many purposes!
