A Review of Custom Bags HQ

[Whilst the following is a paid review, my opinions are totally honest/unbiased, and I will only ever review sites/services that I feel are useful to our audience]

As my own business has been growing I’ve been looking more and more at diversifying promotional materials, both online and offline. This can range from business cards, to more unique approaches. This is partly why Custom Bags HQ is so intriguing to me at the moment.

Custom Bags HQ are a full service custom bags printer. They print more than 100 million custom bags each year, with orders ranging from 250 to 1,000,000 bags! They also have over 3 decades experience manufacturing, resulting in lower costs, efficient deliveries and higher customer satisfaction.

But that’s all just general info! Let’s look at why I really love this brand:

Products Available

They have a huge range of products and styles available, so you should be able to find just what you’re after. Personally I didn’t even realize there were so many different types of plastic bag, so they certainly provide more than the basics! Check out the 7 types of plastic bag available:

They also offer a range of 3 reusable nonwoven bags:

Quality Counts!

The main attraction of their product range is the quality. All of their bags are made out of thick low density poly (the smooth shiny kind), rather than the cheap stuff you see at supermarkets. This means that the bags are really durable, with a longer life and more quality appearance.

It’s also important to note that their bags are all 100% recyclable, and manufactured using up to 30% recycled plastic. The company only use plastic that’s sourced domestically and derived from natural gas.

As well as the high quality of the bags themselves, their printing process is second to none. Many other companies will limit your printing to 3 colors, or will give you a reduced quality artwork. Custom Bags HQ pride themselves on offering full color printing, and work hard to ensure great quality for your artwork. If it needs tweaking for the printing process they’ll do this themselves to ensure that it’s press ready.

Easy & Fun Ordering Process

One of the things that I love about Custom Bags HQ’s website is that you can tell it’s aimed at creative professionals. It’s really well designed (in fact one of the best online shopping experiences I’ve ever had). The ordering process is straightforward, well designed and user friendly. Key to their success is how they walk you through the entire process of uploading, editing and saving your artwork:

They also offer a really handy templates option, where you can accurately position your artwork over your bag of choice in order to preview it:


Another great feature of the site is that you get free samples and proofs for all your purchases. This means that you can be totally happy with the final product before placing a large order. Custom Bags HQ even promise:

“We’ll make unlimited edits to your artwork, until you’re satisfied with your proof”

This is definitely something that a lot of companies are lacking, and it’s great to see Custom Bags HQ leading the way with this.

Other Great Features

I hope that I’ve given you a useful overview to this service, and that many of you will check them out.

I’d just like to mention a couple of other great features that may interest you:

  • There are no additional/hidden charges (plate charges, set-up charges, PMS match charges), meaning that the price quoted is exactly what you’ll be paying
  • Many printing companies require you to buy in huge quantities, and whilst Custom Bags HQ let you order up to 10,000 bags (more if you contact them), you can also order as few as 100. This is perfect for smaller businesses!

So what are you waiting for…
