Exhibiting at a show or expo without a bag is a blunder. When you provide folders, samples or materials to your potential customers, you need to have some sort of carrying device.

A good bag does at least four things:


    1. Allows your visitor to store your information and goodies


    1. Hides your competitors material in your bag


    1. Stands out on the expo floor with your bold branding


    1. Gets used for other activities after the show



Show presence


Good bag design can also increase your ability to brand your business beyond your stands physical location. A strong bag design can be like having a branded promo girl walking around the show



How to choose a good show bag?


With a multitude of options available, we can customize materials to suit your specific requirements and brand values. We will start with choosing the type of bag construction that fits both your budget and branding requirements. Possible choices are: Plastic, Paper or Non-Woven.

EPI plastic bags

If you have a strict budget then EPI plastic bags are the most economical choice, minimums production runs start at 3000 bags.


Paper bags are an alternative for trade shows; however keep in mind the weight of items that you or your guest are going to insert into the bag.  Paper bags can be made in different paper thickness and different laminations with the option of different handles.  The down side to the paper bag is that they don’t get reused like EPI Plastic or Non-Woven bags.



Non-woven bags have become very popular for trade shows as they continue to be used well after the trade show has finished, keeping your branding in front of potential customers.  Pricing for this type of bag varies according to size and quantities being produced and is higher than the EPI plastic type.

  • We moved our business from a well known bag supplier to Babta and wow - the same bags now cost us almost HALF the price - this is great value, saving our company thousands. I highly recommend people get quotes from Babta before re-ordering elsewhere, we still can't believe the price difference!
