How Your Custom Messenger Bags Are Made And Printed

We use the finest materials to create your custom printed messenger bags that you will love to use over and over again. When your design is uploaded, it is printed by our team of technicians onto the smooth Nappa leather. When you design your own messenger bag over time it will get that stunning, distressed look. This charming and timeless aesthetic will give your bag longevity, authenticity and years of wear. Thick webbing material is used to create the strap for your bag, which can be adjusted according to your preference.

The Nappa leather is sourced via Italian tanneries for printing and finishing in our own in-house atelier studio. This work is by hand and to order. As a full grain, bovine-calf leather, it is graded to the highest level for print and manufacturing quality.

Care Instructions

We recommend wiping your bag clean with a damp cloth. The classic, slightly creased leather appearance will naturally develop after 12 months of use.

  • Wipe Down
  • No Soak

Design Tips

Your artwork is printed onto the front of the custom messenger bags. Consider the black leather and appendages when choosing which designs to upload. Design your own messenger bag with delicate and soft prints. Designs with bolder, more vibrant colour schemes will just come alive on the leather. Your print is surrounded by smart black piping, which helps elevate the design and make it leap off of the bag.

Reviews for Messenger Bags

Rated 5/5 based on 3 customer reviews

  • Very good product Good quality. Excellent fast service . Very happy with all my purchases

  • Bags of Love Genderless cross body bags are what I call them. Being male, I find the small size is ideal for keeping phone, wallet, glasses case etc rather than having to find pockets for them. Robust quality and design are enhanced by my own graphics and I don't have to wait an age to get it. Winner!

  • Hi-end A genderless cross body bag of good quality with my own graphics was the aim. My expectations were high and I was not disappointed. It arrived quickly, packaged well to protect it on its long journey.

Sling it comfortably across your body for security and create a design that will inspire you in your journey. It's the perfect size for your camera, phone and travel journal.

  • Business

    If you run an events planning business, then you most likely have a lot of staff. Whether it is a party, a corporate event or something like a concert, there are always essentials that your staff need to have to hand at all times. Walkie talkies, phones, flyers, notebooks etc. Design your own messenger bag with your logo or company name and give one to every staff member, so the essentials are always to hand and they are promoting the business at all times.

  • Design Brand

    Designing your own messenger bags is a great way to appeal to a fresh new audience. These printed messenger bags are unisex and a good size for men, women and even children. Upload your original designs and artwork onto the genuine leather and watch it take on a whole new context, as it is made into a practical and fashionable accessory. Add your logo in the corner of your design, so the wearer can proudly display their new designer find.

Frequently asked questions:

What are custom messenger bags made from?

This classic leather messenger bag is crafted from beautiful, supple genuine leather. Your design is printed directly onto genuine nappa leather, which produces superior print quality.

Does the messenger bag have pockets?

It does! All three bags have a zipped rear pocket, and the large size messenger bag also benefits from two internal pockets as well - great for keeping those smaller bits in that you don't want to lose at the bottom.

How do I adjust the strap?

The adjustable strap has a sliding clasp on it which will adjust the length of the strap. All three size options come with this adjustable webbing strap so you can wear the bag where it is comfortable. The strap can also be removed.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)


    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding. If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
