Making The Most of Your Guest's First Impression with the Best Welcome Bags

Very often the hotel welcome bag is your guest’s initial touchstone to you and your event. The right bag demonstrates your appreciation to travel weary lodgers. Here’s tips to making the best first impression:

Whose heart is not lightened by receiving a gloriously swathed package? Who doesn’t love to riffle through the tissue to discover the goodies inside? It’s easy to create a standout bag that will catch your guest’s eye as soon as they open the hotel room door.

A big mistake often made is using too big of a bag. Receiving a well stuffed over-flowing bag, regardless of the bag size is great fun. A bag with too much space will always appear sparse and lack-luster. When counting bags remember that it’s one bag per room- not per person. That being said, it’s nice to put two water bottles in a single welcome bag. The standard bag at securely and comfortably fits a couple of standard (17 oz) water bottles and a few snacks.

It’s fun to create a theme that begins in plain sight on your bag label and is repeated on products within the bag: the water bottle label, door hanger, or candy label. It’s nice to add a matching welcome note or itinerary to help set the event stage.

Adding a puff of tissue to the top of a bag is an inexpensive way to really finish the look. It’s really easy to achieve that perfect puff. Lay the tissue flat and pick a single piece by the center of the piece. If you lift it from the center the tissue will puff perfectly when you put it into the bag.

To score really big with all your guests don’t forget the kids. Check out to find everything you need to build the ultimate kids goody bag. Activity books and simple crafts make for grateful parents, busied children, and happier guests.

I would be honored to be a part of your special day and I promise to work toward exceeding your expectations. Please browse my site and know that the designs are fluid and most can be altered for you. Any design can be applied to all my available products, so if you don’t see it…. Ask me.

Frequently asked questions
How do I contact Best Welcome Bags?

Best Welcome Bags is an Internet based retail business based out of North Carolina. I am Tina Wexler, the owner and developer of Best Welcome Bags. My direct email is and my cell is 224-515-0570

What is your return policy?

I guarantee that our best efforts will always be applied, working to create products we are proud of and to please our customer. Each product is custom made to your specification and does not print without your approval. In the rare case that there is an issue with the material quality upon shipping, quantity, or approved accuracy, Best Welcome Bags will replace the substandard product within your time frame. By either placing a rush order or failing to review your product upon receipt, you negate the Best Welcome Bag refund policy in full.

How long until my order ships?

You play an important role in expediting your order. We require proof approval before proceeding to print. Proofs arrive in your email, but sometimes those emails can go directly into your trash, so it's imperative that you provide a contact cell (to be used only in as-needed during the proofing process).

Once we have received your completed transaction we will get to work on your proofs. Normally you should see proofs within 48 hours of a completed transaction. Once the proofs have been approved your artwork will move into production.

Most products ship within 4 business days of proof approval, with the exception of the welcome bags. They ship within 5 business days of proof approval. The welcome bag orders always ship USPS 2-3 day pr

Why do you need my phone number?

Any information provided to Best Welcome Bags including addresses, phone numbers, and payment information (i.e.: credit card, etc) will never be shared or used for outside solicitation. All sales on Best Welcome Bags will be generated only by the customers explicit action to do so.

A phone number is requested to provide easy communication during the proofing process only. Emails can be overlooked or routed to trash, so the phone is used to provide the most effective and timely processing of your order

Why do we pay before seeing a proof?

Unless you are paying for a custom design, you are making a design choice from completed artwork (prior to your personalization). With your purchase we will create your proof with the names and other personalization that you have provided and we will not proceed to print without your proof approval.
