Paper OOT bags? Thoughts please...
Posted 19 March 2008 - 11:33 AM
What about this.....save money on the OOT bags themselves, and spend more on the stuff in 'em. The bags can get thrown away after (or kept by some of the people who like to keep things as momentos).
Does this seem cheap? Or practical? I have been looking at the many OOT bag threads, and I havent seen anyone mention this. Maybe it is totally tacky and I should just forget this idea.
You can buy nice white bags, but they also come in all sorts of colors as well. And I was thinking of having our logo (which I don't have yet) made into big stickers to put on the bags.
I just can't see anyone using a bag after the wedding that has "Bradley and Holly... July 8th, 2008" on the side of it, ever again.
Don't get me wrong, the bags that have been posted on here are gorgeous... and I dont want anyone to think I think they are a bad idea, I still may go that route myself. i just may rather spend money on the stuff inside, than the bags themselves.
I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. Thanks!

That's not to take away from anyone else's work. The bags I have seen on here are fabulous.

I bought cheap totes from oriental trading for 70 cents each. Then I'm going to make a little tag to go on them. I decided against monograming the bags to save money to have more to spend on whats inside. Many girls make a monogram that either doesn't have names or has them really small.

i got my canvas bags for $0.90 each and i got the iron on transfer paper on ebay for 25 sheets for $10 - then i pritned 2 images on each piece of transfer paper.
also, i created a logo for the OOT bags without our names b/c i agree i would not want to use a bag with someone elses name on it.
my BM's and i finished the iron on's this week - i still have to take pics but will post sometime this week!

I'm just going to re-do our logo without our names. Ultimately, the extra $0.50 or so per bag is worth it to me.
