    Tom Bihn Logo Luggage Tags?

    Do they exists? I was hard pressed to take the paper ID tag off the bag I'm looking at 'cause I like it so much- then it hit me. There must be a way to get accessory durable luggage tags made with the TB 'tag' graphic on one side and a slip-in clear ID holder on the other!
    Talk about subliminal marketing!
    just leave out the prices ok? ;)

    Love Luggage Tags

    We used to have some, with an older logo of ours. I liked them, for sure. I think they would look extra cool with our new logo in it. Thanks for the suggestion!

    . . . or you could use them as gift cards. These are really cool looking. I'm attaching an image (with annotated text) so that people can see how nice these look.

    It's tough finding a really cool luggage tag that's not made of leather but is made in the U.S.A. We're still looking for the perfect one. If you guys have any favorite brands of luggage tags, we're all ears...

    A source for custom printed luggage tags

    Hi Darcy,

    Here is a link to a company that does screen printed luggage tags:

    http://www.ctlaminating.com/Pages/ID...g-Holders.html

    Or, for much less you can have your TB card printed with TB graphics on one side and lines for customers to fill in their personal information on the other.
    Then either supply them with a laminating luggage tag with a foil sleeve for the customer to laminate with a hot iron or take to their local Kinko's to run through theirs.

    Here is a link to a supplier of laminating supplies:

    Bump.

    I also think it would be great to have a Tom Bihn luggage tag. I think the link to Connecticut laminating would be a fine option, looking at their website.

    Hi Darcy,
    I have a luggage tag that I LOVE, made in the USA. It's generously sized and visually distinctive. Graphic on one side, room for owner info. on the other (best written with a Sharpie or other permanent marker). Lugtagz produces their own line of designs, and also has a custom service that can produce just the kind of logo-design tag being talked about here.
    Take a look at http://www.lugtagz.com, or http://www.lugtagzcustom.com/
    if you're interested.
    I have two Tom Binh stickers on my major around-the-world suitcase, and I'd be delighted to have a TB i.d. tag, if you find a suitable supplier.

    I too will second a custom Tom Bihn luggage tag, seems like a good source has been found, and I think it would be a cool idea!

    Red Oxx has recently added luggage tags and ZIPPER PULLs
    to their merchandising mix. I ordered 20 zipper pulls from
    them.

    I've ordered samples of the luggage tags that LWarren and h2c911sc have recommended. We used to have luggage tags similar to those that h2c911sc linked to.

    What would you guys think of a luggage tag that was basically a Clear Organizer Pouch?

    Generally, it'd work well. I'd lose the zipper--just leave enough space for a business card to fit tight(or any card stock)

    And then would you guys embroider a cool design on the other side?

    Probably not: we don't do embroidery in-house. But it would come in cool colors!

    A clear Velcro closure patch, like Blackhawk, Hatch and other Pro-Tactical bag makers use. That's a great Idea! Maybe if it was permanently sewn into the luggage then it would never get lost or shorn off. If you include a hidden slot behind the clear slot, then we could stash a secret card behind the publicly visible tag. Who knows, maybe one day that secret slot can hold an RFID tag making lost or stolen luggage a thing of the past ;) Merry Christmas Darcy !

    I definitely like the idea of a clear pouch that is sewn into the bag. Something that would fit a standard business card would be great.

    I don't think I'd like just a clear pouch that hung off the bag - too soft.

    For my Aeronaut, I'm using a luggage tag I found at REI: http://www.rei.com/product/761418

    I actually like it quite a lot. It's not too big, fits a business card perfectly, and has a cable that connects. The material is like a flexible rubber. It has some heft to it, but isn't really heavy. It would be perfect if it had the Tom Bihn logo on it.
