Why Design and Sell Custom Printed Backpacks?

Custom backpacks are used for everything; carrying gym clothes, safely transporting laptops, and acting as study material transport for school or university. In 2018, the backpack industry was worth $17 billion. This trend is set to increase to $23 billion by 2023. So, how much of that $5 billion uptick is going into your bank account?

Design Your Own Backpack

This is the fun part – getting creative with designs and patterns. Using the Printify mock-up generator, you can piece designs together to form your custom backpacks.

Don’t worry if you have never done this before. The preview tool allows you to see how a bag will look once it’s been printed, allowing you to make adjustments as needed. 

Each backpack uses sublimation printing, this means that colors and designs will really stand out. It also means that the ink won’t fade or crack – giving extra longevity to your custom backpacks.

Choosing a Custom Backpack Style

This all depends on your target audience. The needs (and style) of the modern gym-bro will be different from that of schoolchildren. It’s important to think about how your included design will fit into that end-customer’s notion of their ideal product.

Design Ideas for Personalized Backpacks

Let’s face it, how many backpacks does the average person own? At least one (and probably more). As such the modern consumer is always looking for something that sets their collection apart from the rest.

Perhaps your designs focus on travel inspiration, or motivational quotes for those who need to be reminded why they are up at 5 a.m. for a spin class. 

For some, it’s about being practical while looking great at the same time. The office can be a dull place, so a stylish design might be all it takes to add some color to the day.

To help get you started, we have come up with great design ideas already killing it in the marketplace. Remember to draw inspiration, but don’t copy someone else’s work directly. Instead, create your own identity that your customers can resonate with. 

Make a Fashion Statement

Custom backpacks are more than just functional, they can make an impact. With some bold or repetitive patterns, you can really make your custom printed backpacks stand out. Think about geometric shapes, or designs that aesthetically work – blending the edges of the backpack.

Make It Personal Without Being Individual

If you’re going after the back-to-school market (a younger audience), a simple but personal touch is adding children’s names to a design. This is a great way to seem like the bag has been designed specifically for the child. All you need to do is select the most popular names and use them to get started. Furthermore, the easy ability to identify a backpack means fewer lost bags – and contents.

Design to Inspire

While the custom backpack is a functional tool in itself, these products can also be used to elevate those nearby. Sometimes, it only takes a little extra effort to do something special – or make a sale. 

If inspiration isn’t your thing, then why not try and put a smile on someone’s face with some wit, puns, or a one-liner. You can even theme your custom print backpacks with a movie twist – just remember to avoid any copyright or trademark issues.

Animals Rule

If you’re ever stuck for inspiration, including some animal-oriented designs is a great idea. While effective for all ages, this segment really makes a splash for the cat and/or dog lovers. The great thing about custom printed backpacks is that they transcend gender and age, making them an item to add to your store. Think about all those furry friends out there – just waiting for their owners to tote home a custom backpack full of treats, toys, and other goodies.

No. Personalized backpacks don’t require special care; they are designed to take a beating with grace.

Designs are integrated with the backpacks using a process called sublimation printing. During this process, the ink is heated to the point of becoming vapor.
