American Stationery may be best known for their stylish and affordable stationery options however, there are quite a few other products that we sell.
One of those products are luggage tags. Personalized luggage tags are a luxury that virtually anyone can afford. They come in handy, as luggage tags are the number one thing that people realize they forgot when they arrive at the airport. They also make terrific gifts, especially for your favorite jet setting friend.
Luggage tags are so important when traveling. Not only do they help you in identifying your luggage but, personalized ones aid in getting lost luggage back to you.
Many articles suggest that you should use two luggage tags per piece of luggage. One on the outside of the bag and one placed inside the bag on top of your belongings. Whatever you choose, it’s always a good idea to be a bit overly prepared and have your luggage stand out than have them blend in with everyone else’s.
Need help deciding what items you should use them on? That’s easy all of them! You will want to place tags on pretty much everything. Both checked and carry-on bags. As it is possible that what you had hoped would be carry on will become a checked piece because of compartments filling up quickly.
Also go ahead and place them on things like strollers, and children’s bags such as small totes or diaper bags. This way if (heaven forbid) your child gets separated from you, you will be easy to contact right away. Place your name and cell phone number on those bags. Some places even suggest a recent photo of yourself so you will be easily matched. Keeping everything color coordinated will also assist in locating your belongings in a timely manner and keeping them together.
Worries about your safety and security raise a lot of questions for what you actually want listed on your luggage tags. Many experts suggest putting just your last name or first initial and last name on the outside tag. Along with your cell phone number, work number or phone number of the hotel at which you will be staying. But, not your home phone as worries arise that thieves could reverse look up your phone number and find your address. With that said many experts also suggest that you list your work address or email address instead of your home address. Worried about using your real email? An easy solution to that would be to create a free email to use for travel purposes only.
