Short Run Express – Twist Handle Bags

We are now able to offer short run express printing on our twist handle bag range with prices starting from only 0.31p based on an order of 5,000 prints with black print.

The twist handle bag has been a popular solution for many exhibiters, trade shows and events for many years as it offers a high quality yet cost effective packaging solution. Recently this easy to recycle product has also grown in popularity for environmentally aware organisations wanting to lower their carbon footprint and be socially aware by offering their customers the opportunity to recycle their packaging.

We were recently contacted by O2 Academy Sheffield, a live music venue based in the heart of Sheffield to supply their twist handled paper bags (see image below). These will be distributed to music revellers enjoying live bands that purchase merchandise from their shops along with in house promotions.

The venue has a 2,350 capacity auditorium and the venue benefited from a £3.5m development back in 2008 when the premises was acquired by The Academy Music Group.


This client along with many others will have the added benefit of their branding clearly printed across a large print area available on this product that gets plenty of exposure from customers as it is easily visible to many more potential clients passing by.

Our express twist handles come in the following sizes and the print area can have a total of four colours printed.

Selecting the right product to help promote your business can be a tricky task. Ensuring you select the best product that people are going to want to keep, that also allows your brand to be displayed clearly and at the right cost price may seem like a daunting task. What if you could do this but actually make money from your promotional items, what if your promotional item was cherished for years to come?

Many organisations are now turning to high quality gift items that can be easily branded and sold at a premium to maximise on brand awareness and return on investment. Promotional Teddy Bears are often a perfect fit for this strategy.

Halloween – UK’s GROWTH retail event

Over the past few years Halloween has been growing in popularity in the UK and has steadily overtaken Bonfire night. This is rather impressive considering Halloween is generally seen as an American holiday that has only started to take off in the UK over the past decade.

However when you compare the retail value of Halloween against a more traditional British event such as Bonfire night you can see how for a business Halloween can bring in far more footfall and paying customers. A Halloween consumer would look to purchase costumes, sweets, decorations, movies and props as opposed to fireworks and mushy peas purchased for bonfires. Even with fireworks many shoppers are leaving it to the professionals and going to a much larger fireworks display for better value.


Halloween is estimated to be worth £300m in the UK and behind Christmas and Easter is one of Asda’s biggest sales events (Guardian. 2013) so you have to ask yourself the question, “what am I doing to attract new customers this Halloween?”

For retailers having a prominent Halloween display could attract far more business for eager shoppers looking for a Halloween bargain. We have an impressive range of promotional items that could be used to promote your business this Halloween, including printed balloons, chocolates & sweets, mugs, stress relievers and a popular item this time of year, the logo bugs.

If you are looking to promote your event or business during Halloween or perhaps you’re extremely organised and are planning promotional items for Christmas 2014 get in touch with our sales team to discuss how we may be able to help on 0844 8099 363
