Look for ounces when ordering canvas bags. Heavier canvas = higher weights.


I ordered the 12oz contrasting handles bags from jiffy shirts. They arrived super quick. Word of note, the lime green is REALLY fluorescent green and the royal blue wasn’t my favorite thing ever. Think I am returning those both and going all pink.

I ordered a few sample online and wasn’t happy with them, so I can’t help with online recommendations.

What I’ve ended up doing for my Out of Town bags is to buy the sets of canvas bags from Jo-Ann’s Fabrics (not sure if you have them in your area). They are nice quality (sturdy), canvas bags with handles. Those ones I’m getting come in sets of 4, and Jo-Ann’s has a 40% coupon almost every week.

Then I’m getting them screen-printed (not sure with what yet exactly). I found a guy in my town who is a professional screen-printer, but works out of his home, so doesn’t have much overhead. He will screen print 1 color onto my bags for less than $1 per bag!

Just another route to keep in mind in case you don’t find online exactly what you are looking for.

If you go the Joanne Fabrics route use the 40% off coupon they have in their flier.  It might help make the prices more comparable to online ones.

If you feel crafty, you can save by making your own stencil and using spray-on fabric paint instead of screen printing.
