Shopping Bag Dielines

Shopping Bag Templates & Designs (Downloadable Template)

The perfect shopping bag relies on the perfect design, and the perfect design can only be accomplished with a realistic and accurate bag mockup that truly shows your design team all the nitty gritty details. After all, nobody wants to be surprised by a design flaw, however minor, after 10,000 bags have already been printed and distributed to customers. That’s where a shopping bag template (or dieline) comes into play.

These templates allow designers to mockup a design, review all the tiny details, and download the mockup PSDs or PDFs directly from their inbox. We’ve worked with thousands of designers throughout the years, and are confident that our easy-to-use shopping bag mockup dielines can help take the guesswork out of shopping bag design.

Tips on creating the perfect shopping bag design

When it comes to making paper shopping bags, there are a few key factors to consider. Our CareDesign team can walk you through all the intricate details, but here are some things to consider when it comes to using your bag as a free advertising tool:

  • Logo placement A shopping bag is a great advertising opportunity. If you want your customer to advertise your brand as they walk through the mall, make sure your bag mockup includes your brand’s logo in an eye-catching place on the paper shopping bag.
  • Brand colors Although some brands can get away without a logo, and can instead incorporate their brand colors, we recommend adding your brand colors AND logo to your bag.
  • Premium features: As you create your bag mockup, you’ll want to think about which premium features you’d like to add to the paper bag. A premium, hefty handle? Holographic elements? Be sure to include these items in the bag mockup itself. This way, the rest of your team isn’t surprised by anything once the bag is printed.
  • Themes based on industry : Another thing to think about is including certain themes relevant to your industry. Some examples include: QR codes for food bags, child-proof features for cannabis shopping bags, etc.


As mentioned, our CareDesign team can help walk you through the entire paper bag design process from start to finish. We can be as involved or hands-off as you prefer.
