The bags include the BG955 sublimation backpack, the BG963 sublimation digital reporter and the BG965 sublimation messenger bag, all of which offer a large HD sublimation image surface.

Front Row’s washed navy Canvas Holdall (FR960)

Front Row & Co

Traditional, sophisticated holdall

Front Row & Co has introduced its Canvas Holdall (FR960), a 410gsm, 100% cotton holdall with 35 litre capacity that comes in what the brand describes as “an understated yet sophisticated washed navy colour”. The striped navy blue and ecru shoulder straps are easily detached thanks to the use of antique-style brass metal clips, which add to the traditional theme of the bag. There is also a strap at the end of the bag, giving people a handy alternative to the longer, over-the-shoulder strap.

There is a brass-effect zip on the outside of the bag and a second internal zip with the same brass-effect to create a quick, easy access space. It is, the brand says, “essential for carrying all your Front Row gear”.

Moving away from bags, Mumbles offers teddies for those looking for a promotional product with a difference.
