A Happy Halloween (a few weeks early) to all! As everyone knows, Halloween can be a lot of fun for kids, but its potential often goes unrecognized by businesses. If you play your cards right and use the best Halloween promotional products, this holiday can be a goldmine. That's why we want to share with you our Top 10 Best Picks for promotional Halloween Bags for 2019. Each specimen comes from our collection of wholesale promotional Halloween bags.

When you have your company logo imprinted on trick-or-treat bags, you'll have mobile advertising all over town. In addition to this, many of our custom Halloween candy bags are fully reusable, so a one-time investment can lead to years of brand-awareness generation.

Since Halloween can only truly be fun if it is safe and free of accidents and injuries, we're going to conclude this article with some very important Halloween safety tips for trick-or-treaters. With that said, we'll now get to the subject at hand and introduce our best custom Halloween bags, listed in no particular order.

1. 13x13 Halloween Ghost Tote

The first promotional Halloween bag we'll discuss is our 13" x 13" Ghost-themed custom Halloween tote bag. As its name would imply, this bag is 13 inches tall and 13 inches wide. What its name doesn't reveal is that it has a 5" deep gusset and that it is made out of 80 GSM non-woven polypropylene. Being that it's made of fully recycled materials, is fully recyclable itself, and is reusable, it's one of the most eco-friendly promotional Halloween bags you can find. Its 18 inch polypropylene handles ensure easy carrying for the heaviest of candy plunders.

Your company logo is imprinted in a 6 to 8 inch wide by 3 inch high imprint area directly below the main decorative image. This is a great buy for recycling centers, nature centers, and parks who want to help kids make a positive impact on the environment while engaging in their Halloween fun. 

2. Silver Reflective Ghost Bag - 11 x 15

If a custom imprinted reflective Halloween bag is what you'd like to have your business logo appear on, this is the bag for you.

When it comes to safe trick-or-treating, this bag stands head and shoulders above the competition. It stands 15 inches high and is 11 inches wide. It lacks gussets, but that's not a bad thing; it actually makes for easier folding and storage. Die-cut handles make for easy, no strings attached (literally) carrying for little hands.

Next up is the only promotional paper Halloween candy bag on our list. Our Natural Kraft Pumpkin Paper Shopper Bag. It's another eco-friendly choice, as it is constructed from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Part of why it's a top ten pick is due to the durability of the paper used, as well as the sturdy twisted paper carrying handles. This a medium sized promo Halloween bag, with its dimensions standing at 10" wide by 13" high by 5" thick. The 5" deep gussets allow for a hefty portion of candy to be toted around without fear of rips.

A grinning Jack-O'-Lantern is framed by falling leaves and a banner wishing all a Happy Halloween. Your custom design appears in a 7" x 3" imprint area on this custom business logo imprinted paper Halloween bag. As with the Haunted House Metallic bag mentioned above, this promotional trick-or-treating back is decorated and imprinted with flexographic (flexo) ink. It's an especially good fit for grocery stores, book stores, or any retail outlet that frequently makes use of paper bags.

4. 13" x 15" Non-Woven Die-Cut Handle Halloween Bag

As you might have noticed, this is the second non-woven polypropylene Halloween bag to chart in our top ten. However, it is a very unique bag in its own right. At 13" wide by 15" high by 3" deep, this is a tall candy bag that will have no trouble accommodating everything the neighbors have to hand out.

7. Party Time Pumpkin Drawstring Backpack

If a promotional Halloween drawstring backpack is a better fit for your business than a traditional bag, you'll want to pay close attention to our Party Time Pumpkin Drawstring Backpack. Capable of carrying 6.5 lbs of candy (or whatever else one chooses to put in it), this festive drawstring backpack is made of sturdy 210D polyester. It also comes with grommet reinforced soft nylon shoulder straps for supreme comfort. When it comes to hands-free trick-or-treating, there's simply no better pick than this custom imprinted Halloween backpack. Its drawstring closure also guarantees a spill-free experience, so kids will be able to focus on watching where they're going rather than worrying about a rogue chocolate bar or gumball evading their grasp. 


                          Promotional Drawstring Backpacks for Halloween

This Halloween-centric drawstring backpack is 17" tall and 14½" inches wide. One side is decorated with a Jack-O'-Lantern stock art design, which is imprinted by way of reflective ink. Choose from an orange pumpkin with black features, a black pumpkin with orange features, or an orange pumpkin with blue features, as shown above. This custom business logo imprinted Halloween bag features your company logo on the reverse side. Screen printed logos are standard, but for orders of 250 or more, full-color imprinting is also available. We highly suggest going with the latter, as it will create a logo and graphic that will really jump and draw eyes wherever it goes. Costume shops, grocery stores, and book stores would all be well-suited by this pumpkin backpack. It also makes a great promotional product for schools, especially elementary schools who take part in Halloween costume parades. 

8. Orange Frosted Pumpkin Shopper Tote

This is one of the more unique promotional Halloween products on our list. When you really think about it though, it's not so much of a stretch; many regions experience their first frost right around Halloween, so why not have a double celebration with a frosted Halloween tote bag? This promotional frosted Halloween tote is constructed of semi-transparent orange 3.1 mil plastic. While not everyone associates plastic bags with environmental friendliness, we feel it's important to mention that these particular bags are 100% recyclable. 

                        Custom Wholesale Halloween Shopper Totes

These Halloween shopper toes offer plenty of room for tasty cargo. They stand 13 inces tall, are 10 inches wide, and have 5 inch deep gussets. Eco-friendly flexo ink printing provides a fun smiling Jack-O'-Lantern design on the front of the bag, with your company logo imprinted on a 4½" x 5" area on the reverse side. Below your custom logo imprint, you'll see another list of helpful Halloween safety hints. Keeping kids safe while providing treasured memories of Halloween fun is a powerful way to build brand loyalty and emotional bonds with your company. Any school or family style business would be well served to invest in one of these bags. Grocery stores, libraries, restaurants, clothing stores, pharmacies, and toy stores are just a few of the entities for whom this frosted Halloween tote bag would be a perfect fit.

9. Cat and Pumpkin Die-Cut Handle 12" x 15" Trick or Treat Bag

One of the best promotional products for Halloween that fall under the candy bag umbrella are our Cat and Pumpkin Halloween bags with die-cut handles. These 100% recyclable plastic trick-or-treating bags are made of extra glossy 2.5 mil plastic which not only provides a sleek look but also enhances visibility at night. Its die-cut foldover handles keep candy bounties safe and provide a comfortable gripping surface for little hands. Since we haven't explained it yet and not everyone is familiar with the term, the "mil" number for plastic materials refers to the thickness of the plastic. 1 mil is equal to one-thousandth of an inch, or 0.0254 millimeters. Therefore, a 2.5 mil plastic bag is .0025 inches or .0635 millimeters. It may sound thin, but most plastic bags you'll see in grocery stores are less than 1 mil thick, so a 2.5 mil plastic bag is more than capable of holding large loads of candy and are tough enough to see multiple years of Halloween usage.

                               Promotional Colorful Halloween Bags

Animal lovers of all ages will enjoy the black cat design that this promotional Halloween item features. It's cute and friendly with just the right degree of Halloween attitude to keep the spookiness factor in the picture. The black cat tiptoes across a patch of pumpkins against a starry night sky while imparting some Halloween safety wisdom. This bag is an excellent accessory for anyone who dresses as a black cat for Halloween and will add some needed bright color to their otherwise darkness-concealed wardrobes. This promotional plastic Halloween bag stands 15 inches high and is 12 inches wide, making it one of our larger options. Your company logo is imprinted in flexo-ink directly below the main graphic, in a 8 inch wide by 3 inch high imprint area. It's a great match for businesses who feature horizontally oriented logos or who wish to include long messages in their imprints.

10. Halloween Art Cinch Up Backpack

 Our Halloween Art Cinch Up Backpacks are personalized Halloween drawstring backpacks made from sturdy 210D polyester.  They're reusable, which is good for the bank accounts of your business as well as those of buyers.

Ten 2019 Halloween Safety Tips for Parents & Children from 4AllPromos

                 How to stay safe on Halloween

1. Make sure all costume masks have eyeholes.

It's important that kids can see where they're going at all times. It's a good way to prevent both serious and minor injuries, as a full field of uncompromised vision will help children to avoid all hazards, both big and small. Plus, it allows them to better remember which houses are stingy with candy (or worse yet, don't offer any) so they can plan the next year's trick-or-treating accordingly.

2. Have parents check all candy before it is eaten.

Most any kid will want to dive right into their candy as soon as they get home. Remembering the thrill of returning home with a king's ransom of candy helps us to understand their enthusiasm, but the philosophy of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure will never grow outdated. Even if it is completely unintentional, some undesirable items may be handed out to trick-or-treaters. After you inspect every piece of candy for safety, all you'll have to worry about is lecturing your kids on not eating everything in one night.

3. Don't go it alone - make sure your children are accompanied by an adult.

No matter what type of neighborhood you live in, you don't want your children to wander unsupervised at night. On top of stranger danger, there's a lot of mischief to be found on Halloween night. You don't want your kids to inadvertently walk into it or create any of their own. Additionally, unescorted children are at a higher risk for getting lost, especially when the allure of free candy may pull them beyond their usual stomping grounds.

4. Bring a flashlight.

Best Lanterns & Flashlight for Halloween

Even with sufficient mask eye holes or an absence of masks altogether, it's still very important to have illumination in one's trick-or-treating travels. A trusty flashlight or lantern will help to spot potential stumbling hazards and to spot cars in the distance whose drivers have neglected to turn on their lights. Ordering some promotional outdoor flashlights along with your custom Halloween bags is a safety bolstering cross-promotion that never fails. 

5. When possible, have children wear bright, reflective clothing. Alternately, or additionally, make reflective devices a part of the plan as well.

We're sounding like a broken record at this point, but we cannot overemphasize the importance of visibility when it comes to trick-or-treating. You want to eliminate every possible danger your children can face, and ensuring that motorists can see them at all times is one of the most important steps toward achieving this. Brightly colored, reflective costumes, in addition to our promotional reflective Halloween bags, ensure awareness and visibility on the part of all motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. 

                                                              Custom Business Logo Clip-On Reflector Lights

If a dark halloween costume is desired, our promotional flashing reflective lights can clip to bags, belts, sleeves, shoes, or any other article of clothing to be 100% visible, 100% of the time.

6. Be Wary of Strangers

If you have older children who are on the verge of adolescence and insist on trick-or-treating in their own peer groups without an adult to chaperone, make sure they are warned not to speak with/accept candy or rides from strangers. They'll by no doubt be annoyed by the repeated warnings, but it never hurts to really send the message home.

7. Don't wear costumes that reach below ankle level.

While a ghost costume might look a little more spooky if the sheets are trailing along the ground, they still spell trouble. Loose fabric that extends below ankle level can create dangerous tripping hazards.


8. Stay on sidewalks and always use crosswalks.

                                                 Crosswalks & Sidewalks -<br />
 A Winning Combination

Sidewalks are there for our safety, so we might as well use them. They're free of all non-pedestrian traffic and often tend to have direct streetlight coverage. When crossing the street, it's important that kids always look both ways and use crosswalks when they're present. Even if there's no immediate crossing traffic, always obey walk/don't walk signs. A walk sign means a red light for traffic and a safe and clear crossing for pedestrians.

9. Only trick-or-treat in familiar neighborhoods.

By staying in neighborhoods you know, you can ensure that Halloween treats will only be received from people who you know and trust. Plus, you don't want to encroach on other kids' candy turf. That's just asking for trouble.

10. Always watch out for cars.

Even if you're staying on sidewalks, using crosswalks, or not crossing streets at all, motor vehicles can still pose a safety hazard. Keep your eyes peeled for cars backing out of driveways, coming into and/or out of apartment parking lots, or speedy vehicles taking blind curves in a reckless fashion. 

That just about wraps up this article. We hope you found it informative and enjoyable. If there's anything you feel we left out, especially in regard to our safety tips, feel free to leave a comment. 

Have a safe, fun, and happy Halloween!!!

                                            Happy Halloween!
