ABA member stores that have placed orders for IndieBound reusable bags bearing the movement's popular "Peace. Love. Books." slogan should be receiving them soon. W.G. Ellerkamp Inc., the bag's supplier, expects to begin shipping the tote to stores sometime next week.
The attractive tote, which can be used over and over again, is great for resale and for promotional giveaways. The bag, which is red with white print, measures 13" x 5" x 13".
Bags are priced at $1.80 each, and have a suggested retail price of $3.95. Booksellers can order bags customized with their store logo on the reverse side at a price of $2.30 each. There's a 300-bag minimum and a $75 set-up charge for customized bags.
Orders can be placed directly with W.G. Ellerkamp by calling (800) 805-0012; sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by faxing the Resuable IndieBound Tote order form to (603) 924-0044. Ellerkamp also offers a line of recycled paper bags.
This week, ABA also announced the availability of special volume discounts for ABA members on customized ChicoBags, which compact easily into an attached pouch that fits in a pocket, backpack, or purse. (Read more.)
