Cornhole up date!

It’s going to be another big year for the cornhole game.  They now have their own song and video and coming soon is the cornhole movie.  Who would have thought that a game with little bags of corn would ever get so big.  I’m waiting for it to show up in the Olympics.  Thats right – “The US Cornholing team wins the gold!”  It’s way better than Curling, which is the worst Olympic game on my list.  It would be the only Olympic sport that would allow the teams to drink beer while they play.  “Today the US will be drinking Bud Light and Canada will be drinking Moosehead.”  YES, Canada has a beer called Moosehead.  I bet curling would be a lot better if they were allowed a beer in one hand and a broom in the other.  If the hockey teams played curling at least someone would get hit with a broom now and then.  That’s why I like cornhole – if someone isn’t paying attention just bean them with a bag….


It’s kinda like horseshoes.  You have two boards set up at a distance from each other.  Each board sits at an angle with a hole at one end.  Then you take bags full of corn and toss them, trying to hit the hole in the board.  There are rules and everything. For all the rules you’ll have to go to the ACA website.

I’ve been selling a ton of bags in my Ebay store.  I use the 350E to personalize them with anything your heart desires – maybe a person’s last name or a bar’s name like “Pete’s Pub”.   “The Corn Hole King” and “USA” are also big sellers.  The bags are made to regulation specs – 6″ by 6″ with 15oz of corn, double-stitched with upholstery thread.  You can’t buy bags like this at Walmart.

The college kids also use them as tag bags.  I shouldn’t have to explain this but I will anyway.  You run around trying to hit each other with a small bag of corn.  If you leave a bruise on someone you get points.  If it’s on his arm – 5 points, black eye – 30 points, butt – 40 points, groin – 100 points.  Yes, these are college kids – who else would make a game of trying to hurt each other?

Busy busy summer – Baggo/Cornhole business booming!

Thought I’d post something on Alaine’s blog today.  She rarely has time to post, as business has been booming.  The whole cornhole bag thing hasn’t let up.  In fact, it probably accounts for the majority of the business right now.  It seems like the big thing now is to request designer bags rather than plain colors.  Designer bags cost more – how much more depends on how complicated the design.  More complicated designs take longer to create, stitch out, and usually require more color changes.

If you’re looking for custom bags for your company – for instance maybe a bar would like to order sets with their logo on them – keep in mind a few things.  Bags come in 2-color sets.  Usually people pick fabric colors to offset their logo colors.  For instance, Facebook’s logo is white on a blue background.  They would probably pick blue for one bag color with the white logo, and then reverse the colors to have a blue logo on white bags.

Also, the best size is to keep the logo between 2.5 – 3.0 inches at it’s widest or tallest.  Any larger and it starts to wrap around the edges of the bag towards the seam, which can distort the image.

Some people might be interested to know that the corn we use is grown locally and is standard field corn from the local feed distributor.  It’s basically shelled corn, stored for livestock feed.

Corn Holing and Tag Bags

Yep!  Summer is here and backyard games are a big seller.  Cornholing is not a bad word – well, it could be – but today we’re talking about the game.  It’s kinda like horse shoes.  You have two boards set up at a distance from each other.  Each board sits at an angle with a hole at one end.  Then you take bags full of corn and toss them, trying to hit the hole in the board.  There are rules and every thing. For all the rules you’ll have to go to ACA website.
