What Information Should I Put On My Personalized Luggage Tags?
The purpose of personalized luggage tags or any other kind of luggage tag is to help you identify what belongs to you in a sea of sometimes similar looking luggage. Thus, information that goes onto a luggage tag should be useful in aiding you with picking out your luggage from an airport carousel or other such terminal.
Not only that, but the information you put on your luggage tag should also help others return your luggage to you in case it is misplaced or lost in transit. The advantage of personalized luggage tags is that they give you flexibility with exactly what kind of information you want to go onto the tag.
Here are some of the basic pieces of information that should go on to your personalized luggage tag:
This can either be a full name (Christian and surname), first name and initial, initials only, or a nickname/penname. Just make sure the version you put on your luggage tag is one that cannot be easily confused with someone else’s.
This will come in useful in case of misplaced luggage in transit, or if your luggage has to be delivered by courier. Fill in your address details carefully and include information such as zip, city, street, building, flat or house number.
Including a viable contact such as telephone, email or cell phone number on your personalized luggage tag comes in handy in the case of switched luggage. The person who has your luggage may choose to contact you directly; this will cut down on time spent retrieving your luggage because the two of you do not have to go through the process of returning the luggage to the airline before the switch can be made.
Mantra or slogan
A personalized luggage tag is about you. So if you get a custom luggage tag that allows for you, include a favorite mantra or slogan that speaks to you and tells the world about you without a word crossing your lips.
If it is a kid’s tag for a school bag or lunch box, then a name should be sufficient because he or she will most likely misplace the bag in the same place ( school), and a name will be sufficient to locate the owner. It might be useful to include your child’s grade.
If you are going to use tags as gift favors during an occasion, then you will likely put your name and the occasion on one side, and the name of the recipient on the other face. This can be coupled with a short message of appreciation.
If your personalized luggage tag is doubling as a way of branding your business, then other than name and other such pertinent information, you should include your business logo and a catch phrase that surmises your company philosophy or motto. You may want to include the company website address in case people want to get further, detailed information.
