British Bags is the brain child of British Tags, a dynamic and creative labelling and packaging company, as well as suppliers of promotional items. We offer a bespoke service and work with you to enhance and reinforce your brand.
British Tags was founded by our current MD’s grandfather in 1947, so our knowledge and passion for our business is in the blood.
Originally based in Tottenham Court Rd and then Old Street in London, expansion in 2005 led us to relocate to Guildford in Surrey for larger premises with warehouse facilities. We also have offices in Leeds, Hong Kong, India, Turkey and China.
Our global presence enables us to maintain a consistent brand image for you wherever in the world your products are made.
If required, we can hold your supplies in a chosen location – FREE OF CHARGE – for up to 12 months. This enables you to order in bulk to take advantage of large-run cheaper unit prices, without having to pay up front or use up your own valuable storage space. We keep a close eye on stock so that you don’t have to.
We send you computerised reports as you require them, and work closely with you to ensure repeats are ordered on time so that you never have to panic about running out of stock. You can call off supplies as you require, and we will deliver 24 hours later to wherever in the world you need them.
DESIGN AND SAMPLING
Your first contact is with one of our knowledgeable sales teams who will guide you through the many design and manufacturing options that are available on all our products. Remember, everything we do is bespoke so tell us what you want to achieve and we will work with you to deliver it.
We offer a free of charge, full creative design service with colour layouts and 3D visuals, which are often with you within 24 hours. Sampling is quick too; for example our free of charge woven sampling takes around a week and a half. Once you have approved your sample we will place your bulk order. Production times vary depending on the product, our product pages have more detailed information.
PRODUCTION AND QUALITY ASSURANCE
For printed products your designs are turned into plates or stereos. For weaving they become ‘iprons’ (computer generated stitch patterns). Your product is then monitored, both physically and by machine, on the presses and looms. In finishing, whether folding, stringing, laminating, embossing or die cutting, our focus is on producing the highest quality product for our clients.
Our commitment is to rigorous quality assurance for your branded woven labels, swing tickets, printed boxes and carrier bags as well as for promotional items. If, for any reason, we make a mistake, we will remake your branding urgently for you free of charge.
We are very conscious of the need to protect our environment, and to that end we offer ranges of biodegradable fabric carrier bags, recycled boards, paper bags and ecological yarns on woven labels, within our own environmental policy.
Our aim is to deliver from our offices anywhere in the world within 24 hours, wherever possible. We also offer global courier, airfreight and seafreight services and we can assist in tracking any shipment for you. We can also work with your own nominated freight carrier if you prefer.
