    Hi Ladies,

     

    I am thinking of ordering my OOT bags from Cheaptotes.com but I read on the forum that the quality of the canvas bags might not be all that great.

     

    Have any of you lovely ladies ordered recently?  Are you happy with the product?

     

    Thanks,

    V

      We decided to go with totes from discountmugs.com and we absolutely love our totes.  They are large and a great beach bag for guests.  We ordered 25 bags and it came to $88 total including shipping (this was during their cyber Monday sale).  We did get an imprint on it.  We will do this ourselves.

        i ordered my oot bags from cheaptotes. i did the .99 cent canvas ones and i am really happy with them.  they are a little on the thin side but they are a great size and more then perfect for an oot bag, i know i would be happy with it if i got it as a guest so i'm really happy i went with them.   i created a logo and then printed on iron on transfer paper and ironed them on the bags and they are coming out awesome!

          There are also a lot of options on eBay for large lots of canvas bags.  Perhaps if you have a smaller group you could find another bride to go in on it with you.  I was looking to spend no more than $2 per bag including shipping (and I'm also concerned by the thinness of the cheaptotes ones) How many did you need? I'm probably only going to need about 15 and the smallest lot at the price I want is 50.  PM if you're interested.

            I just ordered a canvas one to check out the quality.  I'll let you know when it gets here.

              As much as I did want canvas, I went to Dollar Tree last night and they must have gotten a new shipment because I found the exact style and size bag I was hoping for. Alas, they aren't canvas, but at least I won't feel hurt if the guests don't use them after the wedding week. And of course, no shipping costs is always nice.

                 Hi there!  Would you please tell me how you created your logo and iron on?  Did you grab it from a website?  I am going to order my canvas bags from cheap totes.  I had planned on having our logo professionally printed on the bags.  But after reading some threads and being on a budget, I am really interested in creating my own iron on. 

                 

                How did yours turn out?

                 

                Thanks!

                  Do you have a photo of them?  Are they on the website?  I am always looking but never find what I want.

                    I'll post a pic when I get home. They are not on the website, and I has just been at another Dollar Tree a few days prior and they didn't have them. When I was at the cashier I asked if the bags were new and she had no idea. I got two different shades of blue with multicolored straps that go vertically down the sides of the bags. They had other colors too, but I can't remember which, sorry. Pics coming....

                      Here are the bags I bought with a magazine next to them for reference size.  I bought both blues, like I said there were other colors, just can't remember which.  Sorry, hope this helps.
