2005 Promotional Gift Award
FlapBag: Tarpaulin bag on the road to success
Bags made from tarpaulin have become cult objects and are must-haves for promotional campaigns in the event scene sector. LorryBags are the original bags from HALFAR®. The FlapBag are a further development of these, and won the bronze medal at the 2005 Promotional Gift Awards in the Communicative Product category. The FlapBag is the halfway house between the cost-effective stock items and the boundless design possibilities that the LorryBag offers. Previously, it was only possible to print entire tarpaulin surfaces with complete Far-East production - which meant either long deliver times or expensive air freight.
The print size or number of colours was limited for local stock items. But not with the FlapBag. A flap, which is printed in Europe, is mounted onto a pre-manufactured bag body made from black polyester. This allows for a very short delivery time of just two to five weeks for special editions, with low prices and no air freight involved. All bags already contain inner pockets, front pockets, a mobile phone pocket and pen loops. The print area is as large as the flap itself; possible external materials include PVC sheeting with coloured offset printing, or tarpaulin in up to 40 colours. Besides decoration with brilliant prints, it is also possible to embroider the material.
The Promotional Gift Award distinguishes promotional items that are seen to be especially modern, very communicative products. More information on www.promotionalgiftaward.de.
