Clear Vinyl Backpacks from The Clear Bag Store

It’s unfortunate that in today’s modern world, more and more schools are introducing policies for clear vinyl backpacks to promote additional safety and security for students and staff.  We say unfortunate, because, sadly, the world is not as safe for our children as in days gone by, and with the terrible school tragedies of recent times, schools are being forced to re-examine their security procedures.

Enter Clear Vinyl Backpacks

Clear vinyl backpacks may not sound very exciting but they have actually become quite popular as a fashion accessory.  A clear bag can be individualized to suit the personality of the child, they’re durable and strong, it’s quick and simple to find what you’re looking for. With clear vinyl backpacks it’s much easier to be organized.

Plus there’s the cleaning issue.  Traditional school bags are notoriously grubby, and over-packed.  With clear vinyl backpacks it’s very simple to see exactly what needs to be taken out the backpack daily. Wiping it out with a soapy cloth and drying, then re-packing it’s a breeze. Voila!  You have a clean and organized school backpack.  How often can you say that now? Don’t forget we have clear plastic bags wholesale also.

Clear Vinyl Backpacks: Privacy for Students

If you’re concerned about the invasion of your child’s privacy, don’t be, because surprisingly this isn’t an issue at all.  Personal items can be placed in smaller opaque bags or folders within the clear vinyl backpack, and these can be used for carrying money, toiletries, make-up etc.  So your personal stuff stays personal.

The bonus with these clear vinyl backpack is that they’re water-resistant. You do not have to worry about the elements and all your precious stuff inside getting wet. Clear handbags from The Clear Bag Store are made from very tough, durable PVC and they’re going to last for a long time.  They’ll survive all the rough playing that school backpacks have to endure. Tough because they are being thrown around, kicked, pushed under lockers and chairs, dropped, and everything else in-between.

Another bonus with these clear backpacks is that you and/or your child can decorate the bag to your own individual style.  Just remember you can’t cover the whole bag because that would defeat the purpose of using clear vinyl backpacks. You can certainly go to town on it with stickers, glitter, whatever your child likes to make it their own personal bag.  What a great way to spend a wintery day indoors. So send us your ideas for decorating and personalizing your children’s clear vinyl backpacks!

Clear Vinyl Backpacks from The Clear Bag Store. It’s All About Security and Safety for Our Children

And now down to the real reason why policies for clear vinyl backpacks are being implemented in schools like our good friends at Ritenour High School – security! Not to mention all the sporting facilities, businesses and organizations that have already implemented clear bag policies.  It’s all about keeping our children safe, and what better way than having all students carry clear bags, where inspections can take place very quickly. With this new ramped-up security measure, smuggling drugs or weapons into schools should become a thing of the past.

Incidentally, this is a great relief for parents too. If you’re having concerns of our own regarding what your children are getting up to, now you can check your own children’s clear vinyl backpacks before and after they leave your home.

Using clear vinyl backpacks for security in schools is such a simple step. It’s a great one, because it helps to keep all students honest, and it will also help in keeping our students safe while away from home. But also, we have the one of a kind pink clear vinyl backpacks. Stylish indeed!

Why A Little Girl’s Dance Class Made Us Redesign Our Website

If there’s one thing that clear bags have taught us, it’s that everything changes. Just a few years ago no one had even thought of clear bags as fashion statements, as security necessities, or as practical organisational tools. No one could have predicted the clear bag revolution we’ve witnessed. And yet here we are – in a world where the clear bag is quickly becoming a staple of everyday lives all across the globe.

Things change all the time. Recently, a note from one of our customers made us realise that our website needed changing – a refreshment.

The Clear Bag Emergency

Our customer is a mother of three who has a busy life – not only raising three energetic kids, but running her own home-based business and keeping up a healthy social life. And she loves our clear bag offerings, so we’re obviously destined to be best friends.

Anyway, our customer sent us a note with a rare tone of sadness in it, relating how she’d found herself out one rainy night, taking the kids to three separate activities (football, dance class, a schoolmate’s house for a sleepover) when she noticed that her daughter’s clear bag used to haul her dance shoes and other equipment had seen better days. So, while sitting in the parking lot, she’d tried to go to our site on her phone and quickly order a replacement before she forgot.

But, and here’s where the sadness comes in, she couldn’t, because the site didn’t work well on her phone. She tried for ten frustrating minutes, then gave up. And then forgot about it … until the next dance class, when the same thing happened.

Time to Act

We’re nothing if not responsive to our customers. When we heard this tragic tale we knew something had to be done – and so we apologised and got to work making our website better. And we’re proud to say we think we’ve succeeded. Check out the new-look Clear Bag Store!

We’ve got a clean, new modern look that makes finding the perfect clear bag for your needs a snap. We’re mobile-friendly, with a responsive site that’s engineered to look good and be easy to navigate no matter what screen you’re viewing us on. We’ve got lots and lots of big, clear photos so you can see what you’re shopping for.

Most important, though, is what hasn’t changed. Behind all the glitz and glamour of this new design is the same dedicated staff of folks who have helped build The Clear Bag Store into one of the leading clear bag websites in the world. We still have our philosophy of “the customer always comes first,” and we still have our eye for design and our insistence on top-quality materials and manufacturing.

We’re still the same company – we’re just a lot prettier and a lot easier to shop with! Come and check out the new site. Do it now – we’ll look great on your phone or tablet, we promise.

Clear Travel Bags: Your Fellow Passengers Will Thank You For It

Your fellow passengers will thank you for remembering your carry on clear travel bags for cosmetics. If you travel as much as I do, then you know the frustration of standing in line at the baggage screening point. Maybe the person at the front of the line has to carefully unpack their entirely too large carry-on bag to find the rogue nail clippers that set off security. And if you travel as much as I do, you likely know the embarrassment that comes when it occasionally turns out to be you.

My most recent such encounter had me speculating on the advantages clear baggage provides when traveling. Sure, clear bags are clearly advantageous when trying to work out what seemingly harmless device in your bag has you sent to the naughty line. But there are other advantages as well.

For instance, every time I leave the house before a long work trip my mind is racing. Did I pack everything> Where are my keys? Does my bag always feel this light? Most of the time this is just pre-travel jitters, but occasionally I have actually forgotten something important; like my medication or laptop charger. Of course I only remember what it is I’ve forgotten when I try to find said object (I was sure I packed my toothbrush) or once it’s too late to do anything about it.

Clear travel bags help to overcome not only that unpleasant nagging that you’ve forgotten something, but also the opportunity to easily identify when you have forgotten something. When packing for a trip I find that my carry-on baggage always takes longer to pack than my checked baggage even though it is smaller. While a lot goes into our checked baggage, there are very few size restrictions and most of it is simply made up of clothing. While forgetting to pack your favorite shirt is annoying, forgetting to pack your travel documents has a much bigger impact on your trip.

Clear handbags help to overcome this by giving you an easy way to quickly confirm the contents of your carry-on baggage. All of your important travel paraphernalia is visible when using clear travel bags. It’s as easy as giving the contents a quick once over before you walk out the door. Not only does this assuage that nagging thought that you have forgotten something; it virtually guarantees that you haven’t actually forgotten anything.

An additional benefit of using clear travel bags for your checked baggage is the satisfaction of knowing that you are very unlikely to be the person holding up the queue at the baggage screening point. Even if you do get asked by security to pull out a suspicious looking object, it will be a matter of seconds to find it and present it for inspection.

It seems obvious to me that anything which reduces the stress and hassle of travel is a worthwhile investment. Clear travel bags are a great first step towards making your next trip, trouble free. Plan ahead, visit us and safe travels from The Clear Bag Store.

Clear Bookbag: The Ultimate In Kid Safety

We all know that a clear bookbag is great for the security at our kid’s school. Clear school bags are great for keeping organized and making sure every child gets the right bag on those crazy, hectic mornings before school. That they’re hip and cool right now so your kids get the extra treat of being in style when they go to school. All of these things have already made a clear bookbag required school gear even in school districts that don’t literally require a clear bookbag. You can check out all clear handbags and clear bookbags here at The Clear Bag Store.

But there are even more ways you can make your kid’s clear bookbag work overtime to keep them safe. With a little creativity, in fact, there’s almost no limit to the ideas you can come up with. Here’s a few to get you started.

The Burner and A Clear Bookbag

Did you know that cheap, pre-paid cell phones sold at many stores are known as “burners” in street slang (and on cop shows on TV)? A “burner” can be tucked in one of the pockets of your child’s clear bookbag and forgotten about. It’s a cheap phone that’s not connected to any plan or credit cards, so even if it’s lost or stolen it won’t matter much financially – but if your child gets lost or finds themselves in a scrape and their regular phone has gone dead or been dropped or stolen, the “burner” could be a life-saver – and the clear bookbag pocket means it will be easy for them to locate it in an emergency.

For young children, the idea that they might get lost or become separated from a class during an excursion or even from you at a busy shopping center or similar place is terrifying. Try this for some peace of mind: Print on one side of a sheet of paper IF FOUND OPEN ME and on the other the child’s name, address, and your phone number. Now, if a stranger stumbles on your child lost somewhere, they’ll be able to get in touch with you immediately. It gives their location – and you’ll sleep better.

Decoy Money and Clear Bookbag

You’ve raised your children to be smarter than to find themselves in bad areas of town, but you never know. Stick a few small bills in a visible pocket of the clear bookbag and tell your kids not to touch it. If they’re ever noticed by unsavory types, the obvious money – the decoy money – will attract their attention and most likely your kids and their actual lunch money or valuables will be overlooked. Most criminals are looking for an easy, fast score – give them low-hanging fruit and keep your kids safer. Plus it’s emergency ice cream money when you forget to bring cash!

Keeping your kids safe is always priority one. A clear bookbag offers plenty of opportunities to improve the safety and security of your children like our clear plastic bags wholesale friends at Shelby County School. All it takes is a little brainstorming – and a clear bookbag, of course.
