DESIGN AND DISPLAY TI PS...

1) Use bold graphics: Avoid small type. The bag is a billboard and should convey an image.

2) Consider full background "Tints":With reversed out copy for maximum impact.

3) Display bags prominently: But only in attended areas.  Giving a bag to a trade show attendee gives you a moment to meet a potential customer one-on-one.
