I have taken a step up in the world with new rugged 100% ultra-durable acrylic custom luggage identification tags offered by Zazzle. Paper airline luggage tags have been the way I identified my luggage and carry-on bags for as long as I can remember. I did have one bag that had a hidden tag compartment but even that had a paper tag that slipped out.
When I received my double sided custom Zazzle luggage tags in the mail I was quite pleased with the design result. I also wanted to offer a review for anyone interested in purchasing an identification tag. The print and my logo were sharp and clear. According to Zazzle, they are produced using the AcryliPrint®HD printing process to show designs, text and photos in vibrant clarity and brilliant colors. After two years, the colors haven't faded. I can now say that they have been through two years of airport baggage handling, hotel luggage carts, in and out of car trunks and back seats and on my purse. They've held up well and still look new.
When set next to a standard business card, the identification tag actually looks larger but you can see by the image at the right that it is business card size (2" x 3.5"). You can also see it comes with a sturdy leather strap and buckle. Below is a side view revealing two acrylic layers and a thin paper layer with the two designs (front and back) sandwiched in between. The Zazzle description explains that these tags are UV resistant and waterproof. I can now attest to the fact that mine still look new except for the outer scratches on the acrylic. As I mentioned in the first paragraph update those minor scratches don't hinder viewing the design and text.
How else can you use these sturdy identification tags? You might also consider them to identify items in storage. We use plastic containers for camping equipment and these tags make a great way to list items stored in containers such as kitchenware, tools etc.
