Cheap Canvas Totes!

Recommended Posts

FYI. In case anyone is using fuscia or bright blue or black bags. Target has some cute plain canvas totes in the dollar bin section. They are $2.50 each. I didn't buy one but I thought they were pretty sturdy and the colors are really bright.

They are a bit smaller than the ones offered on Cheap totes though, so if you are doing a towel or tee you might want to get the bigger ones..If not...They will fit the other stuff perfectly.

Has anyone tried the 'Gift Tote Bag'? They are only $.69 each which kinda scares me because they're so cheap... but they jacked up the price of the natural canvas ones to $1.49... which isn't bad... but I'd rather pay the $.69!! Let me know!

Okay, so I just ordered 80 navy blue canvas totes from here. Using the coupon code from another thread (cheaptotes), I saved 10% (truncated, not rounded up). The subtotal was $119.20 minus $11.20 plus $18.99 in shipping. Total came to 126.99. My stepbrother has a silkscreening business that he just started. He said he hasn't seen anything cheaper for that size online and that it is a good price for that size. He said he would do our silkscreening for really cheap but we told him to charge what he would charge. I don't want to save money at his expense, he has been struggling for a long time. So, he said $1 per bag.

 

We figure we will give one bag per person but maybe just roll up the second bag and put it in the other tote with the OOT stuff (one mug per person, maraca pen per couple, flipflop playing cards per couple, disp underwater camera per couple, first aid bag per couple, and one spanish translation sheet per couple...I am still looking for some sort of crazy straw per person). I didn't want to have to double the cost of the OOT bags by making one per person and having to buy more to make it look fuller. Will it be tacky to roll the second bag up and include with the other stuff? We are trying to save money where we can since the AHR is going to cost us plenty (220 guests probably will attend).

 

I'll post pics once the bags come in.

No, I don't think it will be tacky at all. You're going above and beyond what most people are doing by adding a second bag to the first. I think most people will just be happy and appreciate the thought and time that goes into the OOT bags... most guests are probably not even expecting anything.

Carrie,

 

That's a great price for silk-screening. I bet that a lot of people on here might be interested in sending business your brother's way, if he's interested. Think he would be?? I'm considering buying totes and having them silkscreened locally, but can't find a good silkscreener...

I will check with him. He used to work for a guy who owned a silk-screening business but the guy got divorced and had to sell. My stepbrother couldn't afford to buy it outright. The guy wanted to let Gary take over and just pay him monthly until he paid for it. But didn't work out. So, Gary bought his own (maybe this guy's stuff) equipment and is just starting up. He made us gag t-shirts and a banner for when we went to Jamboree in the Hills last year. He hasn't "officially" started a business yet. He wants to wait until he has more business. So, he could silkscreen anything from tees to totes to banners. This could be a good start for him. I'll keep you updated. I have to email him with my logo stuff anyhow so we can figure out what I want on my totes. I'll have to start a thread with that question.

The picture is not very good. I can't find my charger for my cmaera so this was from my camera phone, but to the right of the bag is a 12 inch ruler so you can judge the size.
Thanks for posting a pic! Just wondering how wide(?) these bags are though?

I am debating between the colored canvas totes like yours (15 x 16) and the gusset non-woven totes (12 x 15 x 6).

I like the colors and look of the canvas totes ... but love that the gusset totes are 6 deep. The canvas ones look more narrow but I can't tell.

The colored canvas totes are 15 x 16...there's not really a depth to speak of... it's more like a pillow case if that makes sense :) that sounds bad, but they're actually really cute IMO... hope that helps!
