Thanks for the compliment on the logo, I'll pass it along! Our friend is a graphic designer and he hand drew it for us for free. Do you know Herschel backpacks? He designed their logo too. He's very talented!
The tote bags are actually the only thing I haven't seen in person yet since they were shipped to my Dad's place. I'll ask him to have a look at them and let you know what he says. We went with cotton and didn't get the cheapest ones, so hopefully they will hold up.
Here's what our costs ended up being, including set up fees for the logo and shipping. Actually I think shipping was free for some stuff and set up was free for the coozies. They always have great deals and coupon codes on that site!
Bags - 60 @ $3.60 each
Cooler bags (no logo) - 50 @ $3.70 each
Thermal mugs 16oz - 80 @ $3.75 each
Coozies - 100 @ $1.10 each (We wanted extras to keep around the house!)
The total for everything ended up being just over $800. I'm going to pick up some advil, pepto, tums, bandaids and aloe from Dollarama on my upcoming trip to Vancouver, and then will add gum and snack that I will get at Sam's Club down here in Mexico. Everything else like bug spray and sunscreen I will just tell people to pack lots for themselves but I will have extra in my room for people to borrow if they need. I'll also have a full first aid kid in our room for emergencies. I hope to only spend another $400 at the most on all that, which would make the total for 75 bags $1200. That'll work out to $16 a bag, not bad!
