Vibrant & Colorful Custom Paper Bags That Distribute Your Goods in Style
Custom paper bags are a staple in product packaging. While you would normally use them for in-store purchases, food deliveries, and restaurant takeout orders, paper shopping bags can also brand your special giveaways. Gift exclusive items and discounted products under a theme for your loyal customers or VIP clients. Your customers are likely to reuse the promotional paper bag for their shopping or storage use, so your logo or company name gets free exposure wherever they go.
You can easily create brown paper bags and other designs here on UPrinting. Print colorful gift bags or order a set of minimalist white paper bags. We also have recycled Kraft paper bags for companies that prioritize sustainability and provide environment-friendly products.

Design Tips for Custom Paper Bags
Choose the correct color to complement the paper bag’s background hue.
Dark colors work best with the white paper bag, while lighter shades won’t be seen on Kraft brown paper. Your printed details need to pop out immediately, so make sure the color is bold, bright, or dark enough to do this.
Distinguish your logo and company name. Apart from your company name or logo’s color, the font size and type should be readable. Your customer can’t make the brand association and recall if they can’t see your branding. The size shouldn’t be too small. The logo should also be near your name so consumers can make the connection.
Include the most important and relevant details of the design. Add other details that will stir your customer towards the next purchase. List your social media handles, your website address, the locations of establishments, and contact numbers. Restaurants can highlight their delivery number and any delivery apps customers can use to make their next purchase.
