Brown Satchel Bag

A promotional satchel is a bag that often comes with a strap. The strap is typically worn in a way that is runs diagonally across the body and the bag hanging on the opposite hip instead of running down from the shoulder. In the old days, it was used for carrying books but now it is more popularly known as a messenger bag. Branded satchels are a cool concept for a promotional item. So the next time you need a bright new idea for personalised corporate giveaways you may want to take a second look at satchel bags.

Types of Satchels

Satchels are versatile and stylish bags that come in various forms to cater to different needs and preferences. Some popular types include messenger bags, known for their spacious compartments and crossbody straps, perfect for carrying laptops or documents. Another popular choice is the classic flap satchel, characterized by a flap closure and a more compact design, ideal for daily use. Convertible satchels offer adjustable straps, allowing for easy transition between a shoulder bag and a backpack. Finally, there are structured satchels, which feature a more rigid shape and provide a sophisticated touch to any outfit. With a diverse range of satchels available, Cubic Promote ensures you can find the perfect design to match your promotional campaign.

Satchel Bag Dimensions

The average size of promotional satchel bags is 35 to 40 centimetres wide and 25 to 30 centimetres tall. The space for printing your logo will be approximately 25 to 30 centimetres wide and 10 to 25 centimetres long give or take a few centimetres. Printing is typically done through screen process. There are some companies that will also do embroidery or custom-branded work for a little extra touch and it could be an additional fee but the results would be great.

Customisation Options

The variations of customization options for satchels are endless. A variety of materials such as durable canvas or luxurious leather are readily available for brands to choose from. Closure types such as magnetic snaps or drawstrings can also be adapted to suit individual preferences. Furthermore, colors, patterns, and embossed logos can be handpicked by the customer.

Lead Time for Orders

You want a supplier whose stocks will not be shipped from far off places as this could cause time delays. You should make an allowance of about a month from the time you place your order to the time you get them but some companies can complete an order in two weeks or less. Most of the price points you will see in online promo items will not include government sales tax so you also need to make allowances for that. Ask if the supplier offers discounts and perks for bulk orders. Most makers will charge a one-off printing set-up cost on top of the order price if your artwork requires more than one colour.

It is quite easy to come up with a cool promo item if you can find a sound contractor who can create your vision and deliver the goods in time. You have to establish a partnership with a good supplier so you can keep going back to them for your future promotional needs.
