Customizing Printed Cotton Bags is a fairly affordable and easy process; you would need a few easily available materials, and you will be good to go. We have listed below the must-haves for customizing your tote bag:
- A blank or plain canvas bag of any colour
- Transfer paper sheets
- The personalized design that you would want to put on the bag
- Iron and scissors
- A wooden block
You should look for a good and elegant design for your Printed Cotton Bags, making them look appealing and unique. You can either create something on your own or download it from the internet. Either way, go for high-quality pictures and save them in your system.
Once you have selected and saved your design, it is time to print it. Insert the transfer paper to your printer and while doing so, ensure that the blank side is placed so the design would be printed there. Before printing, flip your design horizontally or vertically; otherwise, it would be like a mirror image on your bag.
Now lay out the canvas bag on the wooden block and place the transfer paper properly on top of it. You can also cut out the design if you want, and then place it on the bag. Ensure that the block is adequately supporting the bag so that you can make the design transfer easy and quick. Place the design face down on the bag and iron it properly. The settings of the iron will be written on your transfer paper packets.
Peeling The Transfer Paper
Now, let the design cool down for 2-3 minutes, and then slowly peel off the back of the transfer paper. You would now see the design imprinted on your bag.
These are some easy yet effective steps for customizing your tote bag. Play with the colours and the designs, and you can have personalized and unique bags that you always wanted.
