I buy several sizes of plastic bags from Nashville Wraps in the frosted translucent finish. They have just about any type/size sack or bag you'd ever want. Their address is: www.nashvillewraps.com Clare, I don't know what international shipping would come to, but you probably have a comparable store in England. Google something like "gift and store packaging".
Oh what a cool site Sue...pretty packaging stuff. !
If you want just a few bags and tissues and you happen to live in the USA...go pick up some at the dollar or 99cent store.
Larger bags are 1. each , smaller bags are 2/1.00 . I find all kinds of great deals on other office stuff there real cheap...Winney
Yup, handled paper bags. You can also get these at a craft supply store.... different colors or natural brown. Then add a ribbon, sticker w/your business name on it or hole punch a business card and tie it to the handle.
Also, some stores use paper handled bags with out their business name or anything on them. I reuse these and add my touches to the bag. Can't get much cheaper than FREE! My mom saves these bags for me too.
Don't forget DUCT TAPE! Seriously!!! :lol:
You may need to tape your table covering so it doesn't slide off or the corners trip people up. If you have electricity you may need to secure a cord someplace. And there is always someone else wishing they had some!
Scissors and a basic sewing kit (just in case) are helpful too.
I used a US company called BAGS & BOWS for my customer bags, for use at shows. www.bagsandbowsonline.com. I bought biggish frosted translucent bags with white polka dots on them. These cost far less money than imprinted bags would have (and took way less foresight and planning) but is something still uniquely me, in keeping with my branding (contemporary bears) and different from anything I've seen anyone else doing. You have to buy in big numbers so they'll last an eternity.
