Personalised Backpacks

At Illuminated Promotions, we are great advocates for promotional logo branded backpacks, which are a practical and versatile accessory that can be used for a variety of purposes, from school and work to travel and everyday use. They are also a great way to express your personal style and will carry and promote a company logo or brand identity throughout every day use.

Personalised backpacks take this one step further by adding a touch of individuality to your every day life. With a personalised backpack, you can show the world who you are and what you support in terms of logo branding and organisation support.

There are many different ways to personalise a backpack. You can add your company name, your organisation’s initials, or a custom design that can even include a recipient’s personal name. You can also choose from a variety of materials and colours to create a backpack that is truly unique. Personalisation of company logos onto backpacks is usually by stitched embroidery or by screen and transfer print methods – it will depend on the material and as a customer, you will often be given the final choice if your ILluminated Promotions representative advises you of a choice that can be made. In all cases, rest assured that your logo will be replicated with full professionalism and care to include your exact pantone colours or full colour logo replication.

Personalised backpacks make great gifts and giveaways for any occasion. They are perfect for company anniversaries, university graduations, staff business trips, and many more reasons for every day use. They are also a great way to show your appreciation to employees, clients, or other special people in your life.

If you are looking for a unique and thoughtful gift, consider a personalised logo branded backpack. It is a gift that the recipient will cherish for years to come.

Benefits of personalising a backpack:

  • It is a unique and personal gift so you can be sure that the recipient will appreciate the thoughtfulness of the gift.

  • It is a practical and useful gift. Backpacks are a necessary item for many people, so a personalised backpack is sure to be put to good use.

  • It is a lasting gift. A well-made personalised backpack can last for years, so the recipient will be able to enjoy it for a long time to come.

  • It is a way to show your personality. With so many different ways to personalise a backpack, you can choose a design that reflects your unique style.

Here are some tips for personalising a backpack

  • Choose a backpack that is the right size and style for your organisation. You want the backpack to be something that your recipients will actually use and enjoy. It will also need to reflect the quality and image of your company or brand and so careful consideration and dialogue with feedback from your Illuminated Promotions representatives will help to point you in the right direction.
  • As you are creating a promotional branded backpack item from scratch, do some research to ensure you get it right. What should be branded onto the backpack and what should not. Get some ideas from your target audience if possible and don’t forget to float the idea around other member of staff or colleagues within your organisation to get a feel for the best decision to be made – what seems like a good idea for one decision-maker might seem like an inappropriate corporate gift choice for other members of the team!
  • Start putting some ideas down, ideally more than one. Think about the materials you will use, the colour and the features on the bags. Consider showing the target audience your ideas to make sure you come up with the best final decision.
  • Consider the recipient’s personality and interests when choosing a design. You want the backpack to be something that the recipient will appreciate and be proud to carry. Bear in mind that you want a personalised backpack to be proud to be seen with and used in every day occasions for years to come whilst promoting your brand identity.
  • Order the backpack in advance and with plenty of lead time worked into your planning. Your Illuminated Promotions team will help to guid you on live stock reports, colour options and current lead times according to each specific promotional product and persoanlised backpack order. This will give you enough time to get the backpack personalised and delivered before the deadline date or event for which they are needed.

Personalised backpacks are a unique and thoughtful gift that your staff memebers or customer recipients will cherish for years to come. With so many different ways to personalise a backpack and a large and exciting range of quality product options available via Illuminated Promotions, you can choose a design that reflects your company’s unique style, brand values and personality.
