Giveaways & Competitions

A favourite of magazines and book publishers, giving away bags can be a great way of getting your subscriber base to help advertise you. Our promotional cotton bags are perfect for this, or why not create something completely bespoke, which is a little more special making your subscibers feel even more valued.

Brand Awareness

Often described as walking billboards, personalised canvas bags are the most effective way of getting your branding or artwork on the streets. An eye catching design is makes for an excellent talking point and the power of word of mouth cannot be underestimated. 


No event is complete without a complementary printed tote bag, and for good reason. Created to an exact specification, goody bags at events coincide totally with your branding and create a lasting impression.

With such a wide range of customisable tote bags available, you can choose the appropriate price point to match your product range. Artists and illustrators are some of our favourite customers, who use our bags to sell their own work as an inexpensive piece of merchandise through both physical, online retailers, etsy shops and their own websites. 

Product Packaging

We stock a few products at BIDBI that work well packaging for existing products. In particular our drawstring bags can be used for storing trinkets such as jewellery and crafting supplies. In addition we can create packaging for just about any product using our bespoke service. Why not enquire about replacing your existing packaging with a more eco friendly alternative? Products with a well thought out packaging solution can command a much higher retail price, and show consumers that you care about what you're producing.
