As you start replacing some of your clothing items and accessories with eco-friendly options, you might notice that while the idea is great, a lot of options are simply bland. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can easily add a ton of style and flare to your eco-friendly wardrobe with print options.
One of the best ways to do this is with a custom tote bag.
If you’re a little overwhelmed wondering what you can do with a custom printing service, here are some ideas that will match your style, help you express yourself, and more.
Let’s get started.
Keep it Simple with Earth-Friendly Messaging
Alright, your goal with a custom tote bag is to make your wardrobe a little more eco-friendly. So, why not use it to inspire that same behavior in others?
What looks like a simple cloth bag with designs printed on it can be an effective marketing tool. In fact, tons of companies use this to market their brand, and they see major returns. Except, you can use it to “market” eco-friendly practices.
This doesn’t have to be something boring like printing “Earth Day” across it, either. You can let your imagination run wild, design a whole-bag image that gets your Earth-friendly message across and express yourself at the same time.
This matches the overall goal of your custom tote, and it helps push others to do the same. What’s not to love about it?
You don’t have to use every opportunity to convince people to make good decisions, though. It’s perfectly fine to want to express yourself in a meaningful way.
Take time to think about your hobbies, your general style of attire, and the things you like most in the world. You can design your custom print idea around those concepts, and it’s sure to be a bag that you pick up every day for years since it embodies what you love the most.
The key to designing a bag that embodies your personal character traits and interests is to try to pick things that match a central theme, or aspects of various things that match that theme and run with it. Don’t just clutter the design.
For example, let’s say you’re a nature lover who loves going outside, but you also love fantasy fiction. You can design your bag around the concept of a mushroom forest with little details such as gnomes popping out of cute mushroom houses, ladybugs ferrying fairies around, and other whimsical ideas that combine your real-world interest with your preferred type of fiction.
Hire a Graphic Designer
This is one that a lot of people might get hesitant about, but hear us out. If you were to go out and buy a designer luxury purse, you’d pay $1800 easily for something someone else came up with, and there are 40,000 other ones just like it.
With a custom canvas tote, you spend $30 to $50 depending on how fancy of a bag you get. Why not spend a little extra having someone affordably design the print for your custom tote? A freelance graphic designer is an affordable option, and they’ll work with you to find a design that you truly love.
The best part is that this method gives you a unique, high-quality, tote bag that still costs a fraction of what designer bags cost.
