The Faa Tote Bags Are Stunning

So I was able to see a tote bag and a couple of the weekender bags from FAA today. They are absolutely STUNNING. The colors are true and vibrant, and the handles are nice and solid. The stitching looks solid but there are a few stray threads where the sides of one bag is stitched together at the top. Shipping was fast, as they arrived in 7 days from the order date from North Carolina.

Even on tote bags with smaller printing surfaces, larger (in pixels) images do look sharper than smaller images. The Bighorn Brawlers bag was taken with a Canon 7D which will print at 40X60 while the Maligne Lake bag is a chunk of a stitched panorama that is a much bigger image. Even smaller products like this do look better and sharper with larger images when viewed up close. From across the room, the difference isn't noticeable. The snowbird bag is a smaller tote and a single image taken with a Canon 5D III and that falls in between the other two as far as the sharpness of the image.

All the bags are dry clean or spot clean only and the tags say in English and Spanish that they were made in the USA.

Hopefully they'll be nice and durable! The look like they should hold up well!

Unfortunately there is no sign of T-shirts ordered on Nov 20th but hopefully they will show up at some point.

Yours look great, Adam!
I ordered some last year during free shipping and am happy with the ones I kept for myself. Very sturdy. Use one to haul a pile of heavy books when I travel and the handles are still holding strong.

Love my tote. Use it every day, often overload it and yes, it holds up well. Bought a bunch to give as gifts this year as well.

Have ordered a number of them and passed off as gifts. They are awesome!

I LOVE the totes. Ordered my first ones in July 2015. Have used one of them as my everyday handbag ever since - so over 3 years. For a long time I carried one of those round, plastic bristle hairbrushes in it. That was chewing up the lining, so I stopped. However, aside from the kind of furry look to the lining due to that (which I consider user error), the bag is still as strong as when I purchased it. I chose a dark image so I haven't washed it that many times, but I have washed it. Really, I have ordered quite a few more through the years for gifts. My favorite size is the 16".

I use my tote bags to carry all my teaching clutter to work. This includes full sets of 30 exercise books. Tthey do the job brilliantly. The earliest seemed to shed its black lining but that had no impact on using the bag. One of them has been through the washing machine twice and came out as good as new. Highly recommended.

Oh great, just when I was thinking of dropping them! I've never seen one up close and personal. Yours look great, Adam! Good to read all positive reviews about quality here.

I love them, too. I use them myself and have given them as gifts.

I have two. One with Miss Hannah on, and one with Mr Darcy. I use them for their items when we go out now, but used to use them at the riding stables and they did have some pretty hefty weight in

They still are just as good today and I love them!

Good to hear. The canvas prints are fantastic so it makes sense.

@Peggy - I could see dropping them to reduce clutter on the site or because of low markups compared to prints but not because they’re lacking in quality.

They’ll be a good way to cut back on all those plastic bags from the grocery store. Actually having seen products can help to sell them as well as showing off a sample.

Using one with either an awesome local image or just something really vibrant and unique might draw some comments from strangers and provide just enough of an interaction to hand out a business card to someone who really likes it.

I just got a couple as promotional products. I put my website on the image and they look great. They are heavier than the standard grocery bags and not as heavy as LL Bean. I got a large and it's almost too big.
My next may be a medium... but I will get some more.
My bag had this image and as incentive to get people to buy them and carry them around I price my profit at 1 penny

Very good to know.

Jeff, LOVE the idea of adding your website info and selling them at next to cost. BRILLIANT!

Good to hear. They are great for advertising. I use mine as a beach bag.

I bought some a few years ago and I use them frequently. They wash well and are very sturdy. Mine still look brand new!

I will order one after the holidays! I want one with a black background. How does black show? Is it really black?

I have received tons of compliments of the quality and craftsmanship of the totes I have sold to my clients. Great job FAA! Thank you for all you do! =)
