Maybe try silkscreening it then. Embroidery work is expensive, what's done on bags is a combo of embroidery & applique and it can range from a very simple design for a few bucks ($20 or so) to extremely complex for lotsa bucks (hundreds!)
You'd also have to pay (or risk a lil DIY that could cost you the bag) to have the flap removed as having the emboidery done through the flap & liner would kill the waterproof aspect of it. The tons of little stitches would suck water in like it was thirsty. Commercial embroidery is spensive and done by machines, the complexity doesn't matter then but rather the stitch count / colours.
it'd be less than a pro job but even more tiny stitches and they really wouldnt want to do it through the liner as it tends to grab onto the smaller needles used so you'd still have to get it off and on again.
