Most universities provide gift bags for students when they arrive at the start of their first term. These will usually contain orientation materials and other fun products, but it’s the bags themselves, complete with printed university logo, that students tend to value the most. If you’re still undecided about what type you should use, here are 5 reasons why canvas messenger bags are well worth considering.
- Perfect for Different Supplies
Uni students will use bags to carry almost anything, and messenger bags are perfect for just about all of them thanks to their wide openings, flexibility, strength, and rectangular shape. Whether someone needs to pile in the textbooks for their next class, fill it up with their laundry, or pop in a few bits and pieces for an art class, the messenger bag works perfectly.
- Easy to Customize
Everyone knows that university students like to stand out from each other. All you need to do is have a quick look at the nearest halls of residences to see that every room has been decorated a little differently. Canvas can be easily etched upon and its light colour makes such customization easy.
- Lightweight and Foldable
Messengers bags are more commonly made from materials such as leather. Such bags are going to be a little too expensive to simply give away, but that’s fine: canvas is great since it’s extremely portable. If a student is heading home, all they need to do is folded up the bag and then stuff it in a suitcase.
- Easy to Access and All-Purpose
Students are always on the go, and they typically won’t have lots of bags to suit lots of different purposes. This is why they prefer things that are easy to manage, and messenger bags come out on top in terms of practicality. Their large, wide openings mean that you can get at almost anything right away, whether that means grabbing a book or fishing out a snack.
Finally, canvas is an eco-friendly product that can be sustainably harvesting and recycled. That’s always a plus, but university students tend to be more concerned about such matters than the general population. It’s cool to care, after all.
