Do you use kraft or white paper shopping bags for your business?

Kraft and white paper shoppers are the most commonly used used paper shoppers by retailers and small businesses. And if white or kraft bags work best with your branding then we've got lots of sizes of paper shoppers for you!

But if you want to stand out from the crowd or do something a little different for a special promotion or seasonal event check out our great selection of coloured paper shoppers!

Black kraft paper shoppers are an elegant choice for year round use. And with Halloween just around the corner, these black bags would make a great addition to seasonal visual merchandising presentations.

Wedding & Party Decor Inspiration using our gift bags | Creative Bag

We love to see how our creative customers use our products. And every once in a while we are lucky enough to be able to work with our customers on special projects like this "Love is in the Air" wedding styled shoot. 

Check out how amazing our Queen West gift bags look in these photos. The styled shoot was planned and styled by Historia Wedding and Event Planning .

This beautiful sweet table set up was brilliantly styled by Gloria Vazquez-Abrams using artisan chocolate from Stubbe Chocolates and cotton candy from Bucket and Whisk. You will find all of the vendor credits at the bottom of this post.

Gloria used our white and gold foil edge gift bags to display the cotton candy. We changed the white ribbon handles on the gift bags to a ribbon that was a little more colourful to match the whimsical theme and colour palette.

Wedding & Party Decor Inspiration - using our gift boxes

When Gloria Vazquez-Abrams from Historia Wedding and Event Planning showed us her mood boards for a styled shoot she was planning we were more than happy to take part in the event. Gloria's idea to use our Queen West gift boxes and gift bags in the wedding decor was so creative and inspiring and we think that you will agree once you have seen these photos that were captured by Samantha Ong Photography.

Our Queen West Blake boxes were topped off with beautiful crepe paper flowers from Floral Fantasy Studio  and used as centrepieces in the tablescape set up. The floral details in the gift boxes worked so well with the pastel mix and matched china, the floral menu cards and the floral details in the lollipop favour packaging.

The gold foil edging in the gift boxes also worked so well with the gold accents in the glassware, china and cutlery

Creative DIY Inspiration - How you can customize our garment bags for your wedding party

Creative DIY Inspiration - how to customize garment bags for your wedding party | Creative Bag

We have seen so many brides (and grooms) wearing customized jackets on their wedding day lately. Whether the jackets are leather, vegan leather or denim we can't get over how beautiful they look in wedding photos. 

We are pretty sure that a lot of thought and care was put into designing and creating those jackets and we hope that they are being stored in a garment bag before and after the wedding day. Did you know that most of our garment bags can be personalized using paint pens?

We have garment bags in a few different materials, sizes and colours.

DIY supply list - we used this garment bag, a white Stabilo pencil and white Sharpie paint markers.

Creative DIY Inspiration - how to customize garment bags for your wedding party | Creative Bag

Step 1. Lightly sketch out a rough design using the Stabilo pencil.

Creative DIY Inspiration - how to customize garment bags for your wedding party | Creative Bag

Step 2. Trace over your sketch using the paint markers. You might want to use a few different sizes of paint markers depending on your design. If you have a lot of solid areas to fill in use a larger tip.

Creative DIY Inspiration - how to customize garment bags for your wedding party | Creative Bag

Step 3. You may want to add in finer details to your design using an extra fine point marker.
Once the paint is completely dry you can use a dry cloth or eraser to remove the pencil marks.

Make it your own by adding your name. 

Wouldn't these personalized garment bags be a wonderful keepsake for your bridal party's clothing as well?!

Did you know that we are hosting a giveaway on Instagram to win the garment bag and the customized jacket shown above along with a number of other products and services from some local wedding vendors? You can find all of the information and rules about the contest that ends on Sunday August 18, 2019 on our original #loveisintheair giveaway Instagram post.

The paper shoppers are priced right for floral shops to use as gift bags.

Event and party planners will love this collection for gift wrapping favours and party decor.

Tropical leaves were combined with colourful tropical flowers, cactus and pineapples in our four paper shoppers. It allows you to use a variety of different colours of tissue papers so you can co-ordinate the gift packaging with your branding or party colours.

The "tropical leaves" printed tissue and wrapping papers are a customer favourite this spring and can be combined with just about any colour of ribbon or solid coloured gift bag.

Just like our exclusive Lemonade paper shoppers, these paper shoppers were designed with enough white space that you can easily customize them with hand lettering details.
