Branding for smaller independent retailers using customizable shopping bags and baskets

There is a lot of creative ways for branding and imprinting your information on consumers mind.

Being a smaller retailer we realize that you don't necessarily have the resources for large scale promotions.  Keeping this in mind we have come up with custom printed baskets and shopping bags without the large bulk order catch. 

Done in-house at our California facility we can do very short runs.  For baskets sets you can order in multiples of 12 and for reusable shopping bags our minimum order is only 100.

Our shopping baskets are every retailer's dream. They come in an assortment of vibrant colors, with metal or plastic handles, and custom printed logos. Superior strength is evidenced by their extended life. We sell our shopping baskets in sets that include twelve baskets, one basket rack, and one basket sign. Custom shopping baskets come in red, blue, yellow, or green and can be specialized with your company logo.

Both the standard-sized and heavy duty, jumbo-sized, shopping basket sets are available with either plastic or chrome handles. Stimulate impulse buying, by placing custom shopping baskets at the entrance of your store today. Take the time to choose the design that's right for your location, add that creative logo, and let your customers shop in style.

• Large silk screened logo printed on 2 sides of basket

• Free Setup
• Set includes (12) baskets, (1) sign and (1) rack.
• Customer to supply artwork.

Customized Reusuable Shopping Bags: (Coming to website soon)

Our entire line of recyclable and reusable bags lets you provide your customers a means of reducing consumption of a single use plastic or paper bag. All of our custom shopping bags are printed with no additional setup charge and no plate charge.

• Customer supplies camera ready artwork
• Non-woven polypropylene
• Lightweight & Durable
• Measures: 121/2”W x 131/4”H x 81/2”D
• Fast turn around: production time can be less than 1-2 weeks

• Minimum order ONLY 100 bags (1 box)
• Advertise your logo or message on BOTH sides of the bag

The main goal for branding is to get repeat exposure to your logo so what could be better?

Note:  We also sell these baskets and bags without customization as well.

What we can do....

Albeit, we are smaller company we do have the ability to provide you with display products to place in national retail stores.

Some of our products have been used in stores like The Bay, Zellers (HBC) & BestBuy... just to drop a few familar names.

Not a lot of companies get the license to use their own displays in larger national chains. But it is certainly a posibility if you make yourself aware of their mandates and display requirements.

Whether you are looking for displays for a just a few retail stores or for chains we certainly can assist you in product selections.

Scrapbooking In General

The recent influx has been suggested that 9/11 had a lot to do with our renewed interest in preserving the past through photographs.

I feel it is really all about capturing a memory and the feeling you had when the picture was taken. Done creatively it can tell the story in full. A picture can be like a thousand words, yes! But the story can be told even more thoughtfully and thoroughly through artistic endeavours.

My mother put all my school photographs and class pictures and report cards (groan) into one album (which she won't let me have until shes past on). Although it wasn't as special as scrapbooking pages of nowadays it still touches me that she cared that much to put it together. My kudos to the scrappers that are going to leave their children a beautiful legacy to hand down!!!

As we sell many scrapbook paper racks and organization products I've chatted to a lot of scrappers and for many it is not just a hobby, but a passion. Our goal is to help scrapper's control the mess and free up their time to spend actual producing their works of art (which truly they are)...

Please let us know your stories on how scrapbooking has changed you views.
