Customized drawstring bags are a great choice for businesses and fundraising organizations looking for affordable giveaways. Let’s tally up the reasons for using promotional cinch bags as marketing tools:

  • Low cost. Several of our bestselling drawstring bags cost less than $1 each when ordered in bulk.
  • Choice of materials. We offer more than a half dozen types of drawstring bag materials to fit every need. Our most popular materials are polyester and polypropylene.
  • Low minimum quantities. Our minimum order quantities for drawstring bags start at 12.
  • Full-color designs. Your imprint will really pop and draw attention in full color, which is available on select bags.
  • Multiple sizes. Bags shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. Choose from small, medium, large and extra-large drawstring bags for your event.

Why are promotional fanny packs trendy again?

Custom fanny packs or belt bags were everywhere in the ’80s and ’90s. Moms fastened those clips at their waist before heading off with kids to zoos and amusement parks.

They mysteriously disappeared for decades before returning the past few years as a hot fashion item. Consumers once again craved a bag that was simple and could keep essentials safely within reach. Busy lifestyles demanded it.

So, the era of branded fanny packs is back! Today it’s common to see these small but roomy waist bags worn by people of all ages, from Baby Boomers to Generation Z.

Because fanny packs are so practical, they’ve become a hot giveaway item for fitness centers and colleges. They also are dominating sales at souvenir stores where frantic tourists want hands-free vacation experiences.

Here are a few features your business should consider when ordering promotional fanny packs:

  • Fanny pack colors: Match your company’s logo or brand colors.
  • Belt bag materials: Some materials may feel more comfortable to wear than others, depending on the use. Polyester, nylon and neoprene are all great choices.
  • Fanny pack size. Order small waist bags for children or very active groups who don’t need excess storage. Medium fanny packs are perfect for general use.
