Default Tote Bags

Looking to make some tote bags for a couple of clients. Plan on using heat transfer vinyl. What has been the best tote bag you have found online to use? My distributor that I use for sublimation has them but they look really cheap and I want to find something that will last for client and not have the strap rip after a week. Would also prefer ones with a longer strap so it can go over the shoulder.

Whatever you decide on, highly recommend using something inside the bag when you press it. We did an entire run for someone only to find out that the front and back of the bags welded themselves together... Ended up having to cut a teflon sheet to fit inside the bags...

Some of the non-woven style do not work well in a heat press and vinyls won't stick on some. I suggest ordering a couple samples of whatever you are looking at to test with the vinyl and heat press.

I used these for heat press vinyl. Custy wanted zipper and longer handles.

Thanks.... those are nice looking bags and price isnt too bad especillay with a zipper. Standard ones I saw on my distributors page without a zipper that are made for sublimation were around the same price.

How did the vinyl take to the bag? I know the heat transfer vinyl works well on 100% cotton T's but these bags state they are made of recycled material
