Calico bags represent a clean green branding message for any person or company. Our bag materials are made from top quality cotton which is available in various thicknesses and ethically sourced from sustainable sources around the globe. Often calico bag sizes are ofter referred to as “gsm” or “grams per square metre” and they measure the quality or density of the cotton used the bag construction. The higher the “gsm” the better quality bag it will be, simple really. We offer various sizes for our bags, both “gsm” wise and overall total dimensions. This will give you various options for your custom printed calico bags choices. We have options for bags below 100 gsm and typical calico bags start at a weight of 140 gsm. Canvas which is classed as a “heavyweight” calico material is normally over 200 gsm and can be found in our canvas bags section.

Our printing techniques for this item include just two types of specialised branding. These are screen printing and full-colour transfer prints. Screenprints are great for one – four colour logos and are cost-effective. A large amount of detail is possible though this very old printing technique. Screenprints involve setup fees, so consider this when looking at budgeting. For complex logos, we highly recommend full-colour transfers. Transfers from Boost are available in various sizes and these are heat pressed onto the bags. Time needs to be taken into account for this option as we do require minimum lead-in times. The end result for these types of print and typically outstanding and during recent years the costs for this service have drastically reduced.
