Your Guide to Branded Backpacks: Designed, Personalized, Embroidered

Ideas for custom backpacks printed with your logo from Jansport, Under Armour, OGIO and more.

Perhaps the most popular bag for all kinds of trips and everyday use is the trusty backpack. The biggest advantage of a backpack is that it is easily carried over one’s shoulders. This leaves travelers with both hands freed up without setting down their belongings. In addition, backpacks are often outfitted with various pockets and pouches, making them a highly organized way to carry everything in one bag.

Custom Backpacks Come in any Style and Budget

Between their usefulness in a variety of circumstances, and frequent use in public, custom backpacks are an ideal candidate for promoting your brand. As a matter of fact, a 2019 Ad impressions study released by the Advertising Specialty Institute found the following:

  • 73% of U.S. households report owning promotional bags
  • Promotional bags have an average life expectancy of 11 months with one owner
  • The average branded bag yields 3,300 impressions over the course of its life
