Custom Gift Bags Promote the Empowered Poor at its Changing Lives Golf Outing

In August 2023, Empowered Poor hosted its annual Changing Lives golf outing. Empowered Poor is a nonprofit based in Huntley, Illinois, dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty among the underprivileged and marginalized in India and South Asia. It does this by making economic opportunities available to individuals, thereby building strong and stable communities.

DigiWrap was a part of this special event from start to finish. Empowered Poor began by handing out custom gift bags filled with everything guests would need for the day, including a sleeve of golf balls and snacks to enjoy while on the green. At the closing ceremony, custom bags full of prizes were handed out to winners. DigiWrap was happy to help promote this great cause. Learn more about the benefits of using custom gift bags at your charity or business event.

The golf outing, dinner, and program took place at Whisper Creek Golf Course in Huntley, Illinois. The event raised $30,000 and will help 200 families in India. We are always happy to see our products used for a good cause.

Digiwrap Shares Shark Tank and Business Experience at Downers Grove North

When Downers Grove North called to ask if Charlie Williams, one of Digiwrap’s founders and an alum of the school, would come speak to students in the Entrepreneurship Course last May, he was more than happy to oblige—it was sure to be a far less intense experience than when he and co-founder Brad Boskovic swam with ABC’s sharks on a December episode of Shark Tank last year. Charlie was happy to return to his alma mater and share about the whirlwind experience.

When Williams attended school at North, he had no idea business would be in his future. Students found his speech totally inspiring and were excited to receive business advice from Williams and gain insight into his journey of appearing on Shark Tank.

“This was an incredible opportunity for North students to learn from a successful young entrepreneur. While students loved hearing about Charlie’s experience on Shark Tank, this was an opportunity for students to make a connection with an entrepreneur who was walking the same hallways only a few years earlier,” said Entrepreneurship teacher, Drew Himes.

Here are a few photos from our presentation:

Digiwrap Wins an Inkspiration Award from DScoop

Digiwrap recently attended (and presented at!) DScoop, an experiential and fast-paced conference for those in the digital printing and graphics industry. While there, we decided to enter into their “Inkspiration” contest, where members submitted their most innovative and creative work to be reviewed by a judging panel of industry experts.

We were excited to submit, but when reviewing the categories, we had a hard time finding one to match up with our product and unique printing processes. We decided to submit a fully custom gift bag in a high resolution photography category. When we say the bag was fully custom, we mean it—everything was printed, including the bag, tissue paper, and ribbon handle.

The judges agreed that the fully custom gift bag didn’t fit a category, but they were excited to award us with something because they thought the product was superb. Later we learned that one of the judges was so enthusiastic about the quality of the product and printing, she said, “They just have to win, so they will win!” They ended up creating a “Judge’s Choice” category to recognize the product!


We are so honored to have won this award from experts in the industry!

We were asked by one of the judges to speak with her on stage at the “How Show” in Chicago on May 3 and 4. Stay tuned for more info on that event!

Wedding Favor Idea: Wrap it with Custom Tissue Paper

You want your big day to be everyone’s favorite wedding. You want people to be in awe that you thought of every detail. Use custom tissue paper with your wedding date and names to wrap the favor so they can take home a reminder that you thought of everything. This way you can wrap up anything—candy, almonds, a sampling of items from where you live—and it still has a special, personal touch your guests will appreciate.

Design ideas for wedding custom tissue paper:

1. Name Design. Use your wedding colors and create a design with your names and the date. We even put together a Wedding Fleur design (pictured above) that allows you to simply insert your name, wedding date, and even customize your own colors!

Wedding TIssue Paper

2. Photo Album. The four color process on Digiwrap custom tissue paper is beautiful. Use your favorite photo. Or better yet, select several photos from throughout your relationship and create a repeat pattern design. We also have a “Quick Order” design that you can just upload a photo into and go!

3. Customized Colors. Wedding colors are important, and you want tissue paper that matches your vision exactly. (Just ask Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias—Sally Field, playing her mother, called her colors “pink and pink”, but Julia Roberts’s character knew just what shades she wanted—”blush” and “bashful”.) Order custom tissue paper if you are looking for the perfect shade you can’t find anywhere “off the rack!” In our Plain Tissue Paper selection, we offer almost 100 different shades (including 10 different shades of pink tissue paper alone!)
