Got my Dharmatrading.com OOT bags

Recommended Posts

Ordered 74 of the 18" ones:

Cool Totes

I should probably go through the box and count to make sure they are all there but the box is HEAVY! 42 pounds!

 

I ordered on Friday, they came in on Tuesday. I live in the same state though.

 

The canvas is sturdy and nice quality.

 

The handles are shorter than I expected - fine for wearing over the shoulder if you are a woman, but not really enough room for a guy - my FI tried it and fit it over his arm, but it looked kinda weird, you know? He tells me that guys don't carry things that way anyway - they'd just hold the handle in their hands. Do you think that is true?

 

The bag is definitely big - big enough for guests to stuff 2 towels, water, books, and sunglasses for the beach, which was the point for me.

 

The pocket is one large pocket divided down the middle into 2 - which is not what I expected (I thought it would be a layering of 2 pockets. I guess I can put the welcome letter in one side and the spanish/english translations in the other, if I want everything to be even.

 

I was planning on a 4" logo but now that it is so wide, I'm thinking of increasing the size to 5 1/2 " or 6". Gotta go work on that (don't think I can automatically resize in ms publisher - lmk if I'm wrong!)

Well - hopefully a pashmina in each girl's one.

Then I was going to have drinking mugs but my FI doesn't like any of the - anyone have suggestions of nice ones? Or something else if I don't do mugs?

Travel candles (though that doesn't take up much room).

I don't knowhuh.gif I need to put something in but I have 74 and don't want to spend a zillion $$$. I'm already paying an extra $3.31 per bag to screenprint them...

Have you thought about using an iron-on transfer instead of screenprinting? I used the same bags, and they were super easy to iron-on. We were able to get 2 logos out of each transfer sheet, so it was about 50 cents per logo!

 

Most of our guests just held the bags by their handles, which was fine. Ladies could definitely through the bag over their shoulders though.

 

We had towels to fill the bags up, along with the smaller stuff. You could use tissue paper to bulk them out.

 

Here's a pic of our filled bags:

I'm a little nervous about screwing up the iron on, and since these are kind of the primary present, I thought screenprinting would look more "real" or something. Yours look good in the photo - do you have a close-up? Also, what size was your logo?

I was worried about the iron-on as I'm really not someone who irons - but it was super easy! Just set the iron to no steam, print the iron-ons mirrored, cut out close to the logo lines and iron for 20 seconds in each area. It took about a minute per bag to iron - mostly because I was neurotic about making sure the thing stuck. I'm not sure what the exact dimensions of our logo was. I enlarged it to the point where I could print 2 on one sheet. Probably about 4.5-5" in diameter. You can also practice on a tee-shirt if you're worried. We did an iron-on tee and its also washable.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
