What are tote bag made of?
Tote bags are made from natural materials such as cotton or linen.
Cotton tote bag is derived from a cotton plant while a linen tote bag is derived from a flax plant. Due to its customisable nature, both are very good absorbers of ink.
For design to live on tote bags, we offer three print methods such as Silkscreen printing , Heat Transfer or Embroidery.
Silkscreen printing involves use of ink. Similar to printing for T-shirts, a mold (frame) is used to “push” the ink through a mesh onto the T-shirt/tote bag. As one mold block can only hold one colour at a time, additional colours require additional mold and hence, the increase in price.
Heat Transfer and Digital Heat Transfer are similar techniques. Both processes use film and heat to transfer a graphic design. On a related note, we are able to meet the needs of customers who require urgent or last minute gift requests for simple personalised text, number and font on tote bags. If you are looking for last minute gifts, you know where to head *winks*.
To create texture, we can decorate tote bags with embroidery. This is bound to stay for a long time unlike heat transfer printing where films may fade or peel off over time.

Which size is right for you?
Tote bags come in a variety of sizes, as a general tip, the largest item that you intend to put in the tote bag will help to determine the appropriate size for your need. You can use a measuring tape to measure your item and add on 2-3 inches extra for more allowance.
Other than the dimensions of the tote bag, you will come to notice the sizes in Ounces (Oz) as it is used to measure the weight of fabric products such as T-Shirts, apparels, cotton and canvas tote bags. We need not go into technical details but it is helpful to know that the differences in weight accounts for differences in canvas material. Example, 5 oz of material is considered thin. The higher the number the heavier the fabric is.
10 oz canvas material is used for higher quality totes that are durable and can last several uses. Our tote bag is generally around 8 oz, so you can be assured of the quality.
