By putting a towel inside the bag we were able to use the heat press
from Jean on Tue, Dec. 2, 2008

By putting a towel inside the bag we were able to use the heat press. It turned out great! Our youth group uses them for keeping up with their books for club. This worked wonderfully for us. Good sturdy bag.

Great tote
from Ivy on Sun, Nov. 12, 2017

I use this bag for my business and I love it. It looks exactly as it's described. I use my heat press to apply my designs and it turns out perfect. I place a pillowcase in the bag when using the heat press just as a precaution. If I could change one thing about the bag it would be to change the material of the straps to more of a canvas feel. Other than that this bag is perfect and my customers love it!!

Thick, great quality
from Amanda on Fri, Oct. 18, 2019

Great quality. Nice handle too. These are a thick canvas with a coating that can be wiped down on the inside. If you are applying HTV on these make sure that you put something in the middle before pressing on or your bag will stick together on the inside. Learned that the hard way.

I don't think I actually received this bag
from Robert on Wed, Nov. 19, 2008

I don't think I actually received this bag. The one I got didn't have a zipper. But when it says small, you can get 2 coloring books and a box of crayons into this and that is about it.

Pefect Tote
from Victoria on Mon, June 22, 2020

A company or der 23 cusotmer tote bags with the logo on them, I did some shopping around and found these; there were perfect! I uses Siser HTV and it took to these bags with ease. Hands down one of the easiest projects I've ever done, with the best of luck. I'd definally recommend these to others.

Purchased for subbing
from Chantel on Mon, Sep. 7, 2020

They're thicker than I anticipated. I'm not sure I care myself for the thickness and weight of them but that's just my preference. It was difficult to sub on but I'm chalking that up as my error in print size, and needing to trial and error my pressure for these. Reasoning for only 4 stars is they arrived with black marks on all 3 I ordered. I didn't have time to reorder so just used them and tried to place the design to cover up.

White tote bag to decorate
from Gabrielle on Thu, Oct. 18, 2018

I used these bags to create wedding favors with my husbands and my initials and the date of our wedding on them. They worked great for this! The only issue I had was a few of the bags that came had tony random purple dots on them that looked like ink or something.

Exceeded my expectations
from Daronna on Thu, Dec. 6, 2018

Got the bag as a gift for someone and it exceeded my expectations as I thought it would be thinly made as with other totes I have purchased previously. The recipient absolutely LOVED it. I would recommend it to someone else and would definitely purchase more.

Great tote!
from Veronica on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017

I love this tote. It's strong and the colors are great. I would be careful using the heat press with it, though. It seems like it would melt. I applied the design with an iron and so far it's worked great.

Sturdy bag
from Susan on Thu, Dec. 11, 2008

Sturdy bag. Can't use for heat transfer. I got these planning to use with heat transfers, but when they arrived I realized this would not work due to the plastic/rubberized lining.

Perfect for sublimation
from Dottie on Wed, Aug. 19, 2020

Loved the bag. For Sublimation be sure to place a towel in the bag. Haven't washed it yet but i expect the color to stay because of the polyster. Will buy again!
