Such bags are sometimes produced by contract sewers with custom sewing capabilities. There are fewer well-defined uses for bags in commercial contexts, though many companies buy and distribute promotional material like printed clothing, mugs and even custom-printed bags. Consumers make extensive use of bags, and especially when applied as personal totes or as grocery bags, customization is often more likely to make a bag marketable.
In the context of grocery bags, many stores offer reusable canvas bags as alternatives to plastic and paper bags. Such bags serve a dual purpose; they advance the store's image in terms of the visibility of its commitment to sustainability, and they can generate revenue in terms of the consumer's purchase of the bag and continued patronization of the store.
The variety of industries that use custom bags manufactured by sewing contractors is quite extensive. Banks, retail stores, amusement parks, and insurance businesses utilize sewn security, transit and courier bags.
Equipment used by contract sewing that can assist in the manufacture of custom bags ranges from single needles to computer-programmable machines. Auxiliary equipment includes riveters, stud setters, zipper fabricators, grometters, strip cutters, snap setters, heat and bag sealers and more.
Successful custom sewers anticipate the needs of their customers by stocking the right materials and equipment, and trends in custom bag demand can be analyzed before investing in materials and equipment. In the case of grocery store bags, many stores are interested in buying bags that are composed of bio-degradable or otherwise environmentally-friendly materials.
In anticipation of the demand for such products, custom sewers might stock up on canvas, which is one of the most commonly used materials in the construction of reusable grocery bags. Because of the broad demand for custom bag manufacturing, a wide variety of custom bag manufacturers are available to meet that demand.
