This iconic backpack doesn't play around when it comes to protecting and organizing your gear. With the bungee cords crisscrossing the front of the pack you can secure additional layers or equipment to keep things always accessible.
A custom backpack with your logo is a fantastic long-lasting promotional tool. Marketing experts predict that over three thousand customers will see a custom embroidered backpack. We offer so many backpack styles that you should first understand the key features to make an informed buying decision.
Backpack Material Options
The most common fabrics for backpacks are Cotton, Polyester, Nylon, and a high-quality brand name fabric called Cordura.
Cotton canvas packs are popular as a daily carry bag. They are a bit heavy and prone to abrasion damage but a great value.
Nylon is more durable and water-resistant than cotton. One drawback is that it can unravel when punctured. This issue is addressed with complex weaving techniques or by adding a grid of thick threads. This type of nylon fabric is called ripstop nylon.
Polyester is a very popular backpack fabric. Polyester packs are not as durable as their nylon counterparts, but they are cheaper and come in bright full colors. That makes polyester well suited for school bags and daily carry bags.
Cordura is a collection of fabric technologies used in a wide array of products, including backpacks.
Understanding The Durability of Backpack Fabric
Their thickness and density categorize backpack fabrics. The technical term for this is "Denier," abbreviated D. The fabric with a higher D
number will be stronger. For example, a 400D pack will have thinner material than one made from 600D fabric. However, this strength difference
does not translate across different fabrics. For instance, A 450D nylon is much stronger than 600D polyester fabric. When comparing fabric
denier, fabric types must be the same.
Carry Options, handles, and shoulder straps
A small fabric loop on top of the pack allows for hand carry. The adjustable shoulder straps let you carry the load on one or both shoulders.
Some packs have a sternum strap that connects the shoulder straps. That prevents the shoulder straps from slipping and distributes weight to the chest.
Some packs come with a waist belt. The waist belt transfers 70-80% of the weight to your hips for long treks through the airport. Most packs provide an option to remove the waist belt and sternum strap.
Internal Storage Pockets
A simple drawstring backpack has one large internal pocket. Other styles will have several pockets and zippered organizers.
If you plan to carry a laptop, padded storage pockets are essential. Look for packs with padded compartments or removable padded sleeves.
External storage pockets
Most packs provide external mesh pockets for quick storage of water bottles or your cell phone. Some offer an elastic bungee if you need to stash a jacket or sweatshirt quickly.
Embroidery on Backpacks Things To Know
Personalized backpacks with an embroidered logo look amazing. The embroidery process has a few quirks that you need to understand. First, the
artwork for your logo needs digitizing so we can stitch it. This one-time conversion and the stitch file (DST file) is yours. You can
download the digitized version of your logo anytime.
You want to avoid small lettering smaller than 1/4 inch tall.
Gradients & Shadows
Gradients and shadows in an embroidered logo should also be avoided.
Since your artwork is stitched small fine details are not easily reproduced.
The location of your logo will be influenced by the backpack you select. Some packs have huge areas that can accommodate a fill 4" x 3" logo and others might only accept a 2" x 2" logo.
Don't worry, our team of embroidery experts will guide you thru the process. Nothing gets stitched until you approve it and our experts have reviewed it.
Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Backpacks
What’s the difference in backpack quality?
All the packs we sell are of good quality, and you can't sell junk and keep customers happy. Price differences in
packs are due to fabrics and their features. The brand names like The North Face and Patagonia use light but durable
materials, which cost more. The less expensive packs use heavier, less technical fabrics and may offer fewer
pockets, less padding, less water resistance. It's essential to read the
product descriptions carefully.
What’s the difference between drawstring bags, backpacks, and sling backpacks?
Backpacks have a pair of wide shoulder straps. Sling packs have a single large strap for one-shoulder
carry. Drawstring bags have strings that cinch the top of the bag shut. Those same strings are used
straps for shoulder carry. Drawstring bags are good for transporting small light items like shoes,
jackets, light sporting equipment.
Do I have to order a minimum quantity?
Corporate Casuals does not have a minimum order size. One exception is Under Armour where we are required to sell
at least three pcs, but you can mix and match any color, style, or size.
