Please consider removing "Grocery" from the title. It is too one dimensional.

Thank you

I second the request. That kind of bag is used as a quickie overnight bag, for going to the beach, for kids toys, for... Well, it's used for anything you can think of that doesn't weigh as much as a bowling ball. I use one when going to the library with plans to carry out more than my share of books.

How do these differ from the tote bags?

The other tote bags are canvas. These are polyester, and a lot cheaper. And you can design on both sides of these.

These bags would be even greater if there was a choice of colors. White will get dirty really fast. Most of the reusable grocery bags out there are black or some other dark color. Hope to see a choice of colors in the future! Idea

And...they are wonderful! A bit pricey-but then,I have sold my "more expensive" canvas totes as grocery bags and have sold lots!
I think these bags will do well. California recently did away with plastic bags in stores. SO...a "designer grocery bag" will sell!
As for Z marketing them as more than "just" a grocery bag-lets start with this and see how they take off.
It is light weight and perfect for shopping-what we are looking for here is "bulk sales", most folks need at least 10 for shopping. Price them to sell in bulk.

Make your bags easy to customize. Add mom's name! Just remember that with this product, you want your customer to purchase more than one bag.

Make it affordable. Market it to "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills".
Think "status". Think "I am soooo better than Mrs. Jones"...."I have beautiful personalized market bags"....it is a BIG deal in California and Nevada!

Either I'm sleep deprived and hallucinating, or the prices are very funky and messed up. I'm not sure what's going on.

For instance, here's a bag that I put for 25% royalty: http://www.zazzle.com/cute_turtle_reusable_bag-256785293962069021 It says 11.95 but it should be $7.75.

The royalty percentage calculator is messing up or something.

It seems to be gone now but somebody mentioned that the two sided pricing wasn't showing up. So maybe it is now.

If they were dark colors they would need to put the white underlayer down first for the design to show up. That would make them more expensive, and take longer to print. The dark colored canvas tote bags cost $5.50 more than the natural colored ones, and that's just printing on one side.

Agreed! My friend in the US keeps a bunch of green ones in her car and always uses them. Can't envision that working with white.

Reusable grocery bags should be washed on a regular basis.

You can make these a little more interesting by putting related but different designs on the front and back.

You could create an Earth Day Pinterest board with your reusable bags. We just finished one with 104 bags from 6 of our stores. We still have to make bags in MarBeth Urbanscapes but we will do that later.

For the "foreigners" among us, these also have the option for standard shipping! I think they would be great for promoting your store Smile

Just wondering when these will again be in stock.

I wasn't overjoyed when the SIZE of the polyester bags was changed. I prefer the smaller, more compact original.

I much prefer these bags for shopping than any of the others that Zazzle offers.

I hope that a supplier can be found soon (if that is the reason they are out of stock/ "Sold OUT")
