Changing Trends From Briefcase To Custom Backpacks

More and more professional men and women are ditching the traditional briefcase and switching to custom backpacks, proving backpacks aren’t just for kids.

Gone are the days of carrying around stiff leather briefcases. Today’s modern executives now stroll into the office with their work essentials on their backs.

That’s right, the backpack is no longer for the school yard. Custom backpacks are now an office essential. Perhaps a result of business-casual dress codes gaining popularity, backpacks are becoming a staple for executives and commuters travelling to the office.

Custom Backpacks Have a Practical Use

Since laptops have replaced paper files, so there’s no longer a need for a rigid briefcase to hold your paperwork. Plus, with modern executives glued to their cellphones, both hands are required for texting and scrolling through emails. A briefcase ties up one hand, making it more difficult to text and scroll on the go. A backpack frees up your hands, ensuring you can multitask like a pro.

The New Executive Briefcase

Custom backpacks featuring your company logo are the new modern executive’s briefcase. Fitting given the more casual attitude towards business attire. Especially popular in start-up environments that have a more relaxed, casual dress code, custom backpacks are the new accessory to corporate executives’ wardrobes.
