one thing I've found out is that Messenger bags are a hot hit, people will pay up to £30 for one with a good design on it!
I can imagine many people in Redbubble are either photographers, artists or illustrators, I know, being a illustrator, that I really want a Messenger bag with my own art/design on it or somebody else’s...
I always carry with me a leather messenger bag with me to nearly everywhere I go outside, to school, to shopping or just a day out with my friends and family, I put my camera, sketch pad, pencils and pens inside it and I'll love to make a change...
I don't expect Redbubble to sell leather messenger bags, instead I'll like Redbubble to sell "old school" cotton bags with the "front flap" plain with no pockets, allowing you to print designs on it.
Something close to this: http://www.popwuping.com/stuff/picts/chilewich.jpg
Colours I've seen from people's bags printed by other Redbubble competitors:
- light brown
Bags, such as Backpacks and Messenger bags. I bet designs on the bags would be really cool!
Have messenger type program for forums so you don't have to refresh pages, new message alert, active people list. Would be also great for challenges especially if they are short time limited. Would speed things up alot.
We need more variety of bags this would be great!
Surely this idea has got to be high up on RB's list of things to action. It's quite simply, brilliant! I'd buy a few bags right now if possible. There's so many existing designs around here that would work perfectly on them. Pleeeeeease!! ^_^"
I've found some more picture on what I'm (or we're) after:
- And maybe this too...
The message bag is a fabulous idea! Anything from fine art, photos, to fine art would work. It could be a canvas bag or a heavy duty paper bag.

That stuff is being done on Zazzle.com. The products are really cool to look at, but the cost of everything is astronimical. They do EVERYTHING you can think of there, all kinds of household products. However, therye a TERRIBLE company to try to work with. Its run by robots that decide whether something "is in DANGER of copyright infringement" or not. Its a great idea, all the merchanidse. They have OODLES of different kinds of bags. However, good luck getting your work sold on it. its overpriced, and most of what people are selling is ugly and generic. They limit you tremendously.
I have been wanting a messenger bag for a long time, but the ones I've seen are kind of boring/not interesting to me. I think it would be fantastic if RB would make them available! :)

I would love this. I do a lot of fractal art, and it looks great wrapped around things.
I think bags in general would be a great idea. Not just messenger bags and totes, but backpacks and handbangs/purses too! I know messengers and totes are most popular, but a lot of people like backpacks and handbags too
This would probably be the best thing ever.

Messenger and tote bags are an excellent idea. I think they would sell well.

I was also thinking about tote bags, just like flockadoodle. I think it would be great! People nowadays are crazy about these eco bags. I would love to have them in my shop. ;)
This! Plus tote bags are crazy popular, particularly as they're cheaper items for gifting...
I just joined this week because I love the idea of selling products with my designs/photos on them and messenger bags would be great. My daughter, a college student, has a ton of them and as I was heading into Manhattan for various appointments and to shoot photos yesterday with a batch of papers that wouldn't fit in any of my camera bags other than a large backpack, my camera, water bottle, etc. I was thinking that a messenger bag would be ideal. The bags appeal to all ages and I think they could be a big hit.
American Apparel makes good quality products and if you found a vendor with high quality bags like theirs, you could have a big hit.
Messenger Bags would be awesome.. not just saying that because i like collecting bags. But i have just planned many designs in my head already....
