Tote Bag Manufacturing

With access to a range of global suppliers, Imago are able to offer tote bag manufacturing and printing services.

We produce tote bags for many different industries and applications, including but not limited to events and large-scale marketing campaigns for brand owners across the globe.

Tote Bag Printing & Production

Tote bag manufacturing will almost always involve printing, whether that be your brand logo or something more bespoke. Tote bags are typically printed using silkscreen or dye sublimation printing methods.

What is Dye Sublimation?

Dye-sublimation printing is used, for example, to print mugs or cloth books and used for photographic images. This method allows the dye to seep into the substrate material to create a really good, permanent image.

Tote Bag Materials

Cotton or canvas are generally used, either bleached or unbleached.

When printing on a tote bag it is important to remember that the colour of the bag will influence the final output colour of the print.

Imago are always happy to advise, and can work with you to ensure your tote bags are printed perfectly for your project. 

Tote Bag Specifications and Minimum Order Quantities

Tote bags can be designed with or without a gusset. The gusset can be padded or unpadded which give the bag structure but also adds cost.

For transparency, economical minimum run quantities are around 5000 units, however, we would be delighted to hear from you about your project to discuss your options.

Where do we Produce Tote Bags?

We have quality printers based in both Europe and China.

Lead times and prices can vary depending on order quantity and the specification of your tote bag, but we can offer competitive options to produce your project on time, to specification and to budget.

Tote Bag Projects

Amongst many tote bag projects we have produced, Imago printed David McKee’s iconic Elmer the Patchwork Elephant logo onto this tote bag.

We did this using silk screen printing onto a 6oz unbleached natural cotton fabric. This is a small bag at 365 x 380mm and made with a reinforced side seam to give the bag strength.
