The Good: Wide variety of colors, extra large imprint area, sturdy structure.
The Bad: Skinny bag, limited to four color imprint, straps are not adjustable.
The Bottom Line: An excellent buy with remarkable quality, the M.D.T. Tote Bag reaches across demographics and industries to offer incredible brand awareness.
Design (9/10): (top)
The M.D.T. Tote is a very sturdy unit that’s designed well for a variety of uses. While it is not padded and therefore not ideal for laptops and other sensitive equipment, this item can be used for a variety of other uses, not limited to promotional packs, student bags, and more. Because it is very slender (the bottom plane measures only a few inches across), we recommend putting flat items like thin laptops, notebooks, and textbooks in there rather than larger, irregularly shaped items. The straps are not adjustable, but they are 38” and should be comfortable for most whether hand-carried or over the shoulder. The zippered top will also help keep items secure even if the tote is dropped or falls over. Additionally, the thick 420D polyester material with PVC lining is resistant to most pen punctures and stretching) although we do not advise putting your whole life in there). The imprint is very crisp and thick. The only places there may be any kind of distortion is when two lines are very close together and may bleed into one another. As long as this is taken into account during the design of the item, there will be no problem. These solid imprints look especially great against the bold colors available as a backdrop.
Features (9.5/10): (top)
While the item can only accept up to four imprint colors, the M.D.T. Tote Bag offers a plethora of hues for the bag itself including black, bright orange (pictured), lime green, navy, pink, purple, red, royal, teal and yellow. Because you can mix and match, every recipient will be able to pick up their favorite color with your solid imprint. Another great benefit to this bag is the extra large imprint area, a whopping 10” x 10”. This is great if you want a large logo or if you need to list a lot of text (multiple locations, instructions, etc.). The zipper closure on the top is a great asset to have so small items don’t come tumbling out, and an inside pocket (roughly measuring 8.5” x 8”) keeps small and important items like keys, wallets, phones, cash, credit cards, and IDs from getting lost in the bottom and provides easy access.
Price (10/10): (top)
It cannot be emphasized enough how incredible the price is for this item. With daily brand impressions and a large imprint area, you have the potential to reach far beyond the item’s recipient to the community at large. Quality Logo Products further offers this item at a special discounted price you are unlikely to find anywhere else. If you take the durability, style options, color variability and add it all together, you end up with a remarkable final product for an unbeatable price.
With the potential for daily brand impressions and bold colors tailored to your company, team, or organization, this item appeals to all ages and any industry. They’re inexpensive enough to give away at a large event, and because they’re totes, you’re likely to get additional exposure to passers-by. If you’re on a more limited budget, we also have the Go Tote Bag, which is less expensive but also has no inside pocket, fewer color options and is not quite as sturdy. If you want to spend a few extra bucks, take a look at the Transitions Backpack Tote which doesn’t offer a many colors but can convert to a backpack very easily, offering even more bang for your buck.
