I heard the Avery Iron-on isn't great. AND, it's not super cheap either. How many bags are you ordering?


Here are a couple of site's I'm looking into and will likely end up getting my bags from:

 

http://www.totallytotebags.com/ (from this site, I think we're going to go with the Mini Economy Tote -- I'm ordering samples this week).

http://www.cheaptotes.com/ (from this site, we'd get the Cotton Canvas Bag).
 

Both sites offer screen printing too. But clearly, the price for that depends on the number of colors you have -- the more colors = more expensive. For us, we have 3 colors in our scheme (eggplant purple, turquoise blue, and lime green)... so because it's so much to print all 3 colors, I've decided to only print 2 colors (the purple and blue) and i'm going to buy a lime green ribbon and tie it onto one of the handles on the bag to add that color in...

 

Our bags are coming out to about $3-$4 each (which is a bit more than I wanted too, but I can't find a better price)...

Has anyone tried the Avery iron on sheets?

I agree...I just figured since I can get about 5 of them for free I might do it....My $50 expires at the end of July and I don't know what else to get since my wedding isn't until Nov 2012 and we don't have the exact date set yet- so I can't make brochures or STDs or anything....

you have to get them while they're having a sale or get a coupon code for 25% etc... Try doing a web search and see which sites you get and which is the least expensive. Or you can purchase everything at michaels, if there's one near you. They always have 40 and 50% coupons available.

Getting totes printed gives it a nice personal touch, which is nice. However, the cost do add up especially with the printing. That's why I decided to do away with custom totes and ordered totes from orientaltrading.com. They come in a variety of colors and were very inexpensive. I purchased the one with the hibiscus flower print. The size is perfect for carrying beach towels, sunsreen and all other misc beach items.

One questions though - do you know if they adjust the size of the dancefloor based on your party size? Or is it a standard size?

The quality is not bad at all. It's similar quality to the eco-friendly totes sold at supermarkets. It's not like a canvas but for the price, you can't beat it and it'll serve it's purpose.

I placed separate orders on VistaPrint & paid a little over $4 for shipping each time.  I would get about 4 different "free" products in each order (i.e. 1 tote bag, 1 pen, 1 sticky note pad, 1 note pad).  I used all the free items in my OOT bags and ended up with personalized bags (along with a lot of other items) for cheap.  The first time I ordered from VistaPrint they sent me a web address with a bunch of free items & I just kept using that web address to order.  I just checked the site to see if the offer was still valid, and it appears to be.  The free tote bag is still an option when I click on the website below. 

 

The website is http://www.vistaprint.com/deal2010

 

You have to pay one time for uploading your design, but after that, you can use your design for free.  I was able to use the logo on all sorts of products for my OOT bags.

 

Here are my OOT Bags:

But for the teenagers in my group, I gave them the Hibiscus bags from Oriental Trading.  A bride was selling a couple extra on this site & I was just a few personalized bags short because of some last minute RSVPs.  The hibiscus bags worked great & are a great option for OOT bags if you don't want to go through the hastle (or expense) of having personalized bags made.

Huh, interesting. We just got married there on the 12th, and the dance floor was provided by the resort for us....

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
