Design Ideas

I have a great idea for a bag. Do you pay for new bag concepts?

The Design Ideas section of our website is a bag design marketplace where creative designers can upload their designs so customers seeking inspiration and fresh ideas can view and/or purchase them. Designers are paid a commission when their design sells.

Do you charge designers a fee to sell their designs on your website?

No. Part of our mission is to provide our customers with a marketplace where they can view and purchase bags or bag designs, or find ideas and inspiration to create their own designs. We do not charge designers to showcase their designs on in the Design Ideas section of our site because we want to encourage the free flow of eco-friendly bag design ideas. A greener world with more beautiful bags is reward enough for us!


I would like to sell GBAG. Do you hire sales representatives?

No, we only sell directly to retailers and resellers to keep costs low for our customers’ benefit.

Custom-Designed Bags

Materials & Options

What bag shapes can I choose from?

You can choose from any shape you see on our website in the Pre-Designed Bags or Custom Bags sections. Shapes we’ve created for other customers include rectangular bags with square or rounded corners, square, boat-shaped, messenger, lunchbox, and even round and drawstring styles. If you don’t see the shape you want, check our Design Ideas section for ideas from designers—there are some fantastic and fresh shapes/silhouettes there that may interest you.

What materials can I choose from for my bags?

The material choices for bags are:

  • laminated non-woven PP
  • laminated woven PP
  • PET
  • laminated RPET
  • non-woven PP
  • cotton
  • nylon
  • polyester

All of these materials are recyclable and eco-friendly.

What do the materials abbreviations stand for, and how are they made?

  • PP is polypropylene, a plastic known for its strength and durability. It is recyclable and degradable.
  • PET is polyethylene, a plastic known for its flexibility and smooth finish. It is recyclable.
  • RPET is a plastic “fabric” made from recycled bottles. It is recyclable, but not degradable.

All of our materials and inks are eco-friendly—that’s one of the hallmarks of GBAG.

What is the difference between woven and non-woven PP?

  • non-woven PP - the material is laid flat, not woven, so the surface feels much smoother, almost like cotton, but it’s not as strong as woven PP.
  • woven PP – non-woven PP is shaped into strips that are then woven together. Bags made of woven PP are stronger than non-woven, and the surface is more textured and a bit rougher than non-woven PP.

What finishes are available?

Finish options are:

  • Gloss-Laminated – has a definite polish and shine to it
  • Matte-Laminated – adds protection without the sheen of gloss-lamination
  • Metallic Laminated – adds both protection and a metallic sheen - available in gold, silver, bronze or any other color desired
  • Non-Laminated

All of our laminated bags are made with eco-friendly materials and ink. Laminated bags are much stronger than regular non-woven bags without lamination—an average-size laminated bag can hold up to 50+ lbs, while a non-laminated bag can hold around 30+ lbs.
Adding a laminated finish (whether gloss, matte or metallic) provides poster quality printing and makes the bag easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. Gloss lamination is especially easy to clean. Bags can be laminated on the outside and on the inside, for longer beauty, better wear and easy cleaning—this works especially well for grocery bags, since items in the bags may occasionally spill or leak.

What handle choices are available?

The material choices for handles are:

  • self material (same as bag material)
  • non-woven PP
  • nylon webbing
  • cotton rope

Nylon webbing and cotton rope are the strongest handle options. Handles can be whatever length you specify.

What piping choices are available?

The material choices for piping are:

  • self material - bag material folded over onto itself and laminated for strength, beauty and durability
  • non-woven PP
  • webbing

Piping can be done in whatever accent color you choose, and it adds strength and durability to the bag because it reinforces the seams and corners.

What other trim and add-on options are available?

Other available trim and add-ons include:

  • bottom inserts – these add stability and strength to the bag bottom, and can be cardboard, PE (plastic) board or non-woven wrapped board – if you’re not sure which to choose, ask us – we’ll be happy to provide guidance
  • zipper/Velcro/button closures
  • shoulder straps
  • extra pockets inside or outside the bag
  • custom labeling and adding your logo
  • information tags

If there’s something you would like added to your bag that’s not listed here, please contact us – we’ll be happy to accommodate any request if we can.

How can I choose which will work best for my customers’ needs?

Here are some factors to consider that may help you choose the right options for your bag:

  • How much weight should the bag hold? If you will need to carry more than 30 lbs, such as grocery bags and cooler bags, we recommend choosing our woven PP material, nylon webbing handles and bottom inserts for added strength and stability.
  • Will the bag be used to carry groceries or liquids?
    If so, we recommend lamination inside and outside the bag for easy cleaning.
  • How durable and long-lasting should the bag be?
    Laminated woven PP bags wear the best, so if your major concern is the durability, we recommend you choose woven pp.

We’ll be glad to help you decide which material, finish and trim options will work best for you. Please contact us and let us know how you anticipate the bags will be used, and we will provide our recommendations on the best choices for you.

What if I want something not listed above?

At GBAG, if you can imagine it, we can create it! If you want something not mentioned here, please contact us and let us know. We will find a way to create the bag you want!

Can you create custom artwork for me?

Are your inks eco-friendly?

Yes, we only use eco-friendly inks and materials. The lead allowance in California for general products is 300ppm, and for children’s products is 90ppm. Our bags have passed the CA Prop 65 lead test with NO lead detected on the bag body or handles. View the official testing report. (link to Test Report)
