As we’ve written before on the BankerBags blog, the traditional BankerBag is a high-quality canvas duffel or tote that features your logo and branding. But that’s just the beginning.
When you contact our Customer Service Team, they will guide you through a design process resulting in a bag that you will be proud to give your clients and top performing teams, and also to carry yourself.
Step 1: Your Logo & Branding
Your logo and branding are the foundation for the complete design of your bag. We will ask you for a high-resolution image, or vector file, of your logo and any branding guidelines you may have. Some logos are more complex than others, so we will have a good look at yours and determine the best way to position it on your bag: on the handles, embroidered on the front pocket, or even on the lining in a repeating pattern (Note: meeting a minimum quantity will be required for this option).
Step 2: Choosing the Right Colors
We have a large selection of canvas colors that can complement your logo and branding. You may want to choose a contrasting color, like the red duffel with blue ribbon handles pictured above. Or you may want a more subtle combination with a matching color, like this navy blue on navy blue tote just below. We can also use more than one canvas color (see below). As we always say, the only limits to designing your BankerBag are your imagination and your budget!
Step 3: Hardware As Durable As Canvas
There are few things more frustrating than having to throw out a great duffel because a clasp breaks. So we offer hardware that attaches the shoulder strap to the duffel bag, available in chrome or brass. We also provide the option to upgrade to deluxe hardware.
Step 4: Size And Shape Matter
The standard BankerBag duffel is 20” x 11” in diameter. Some clients prefer a smaller size bag for the gym or toting shoes to and from the office. The smaller duffels are also used to distribute documents at conferences. We can make oversized bags for clients as well. Shape options include round or square. If your BankerBag is a canvas tote, you might consider adding a zipper closure.
Step 5: Pulling It All Together and Delivering To Your Door
Once we have these details nailed down, we will share with you an illustrated design of your bag for approval. The final step is to send the design to our manufacturer. It generally takes 4-6 weeks for your order to be delivered, as the bags are carefully handcrafted and custom-made to your specifications. However, if you need to rush your order, please let us know up front so that we can make arrangements and let you know about any additional fees. Note that our minimal order for BankerBags is 72 pieces.
And that’s it! We try to make our process as simple and straightforward as possible. If you know what you want your bag to look like already, we are happy to start with your vision.
