    So now we haev 49bags, and 49 iron on transfers, and I'm not really sure where to go from here.... This is what our bags look like:

    Do you guys think that buying some canvas and sewing on pockets to do the transfers would work? Or do you think that would look stupid!? Any other ideas?!

      What about just printing your logo on a fairly large sized piece of cardstock and hanging it from the straps? You could put a message on the back too.

        Is that a hole where the bag melted? Can you put the iron at a much lower heat setting and just hold it longer?

          I think Sarah makes a good point. How about creating luggage tags to label the bags instead? Then our guests can use them on their luggage when they head home.

            Yikes...I am SO sorry that happened!

            I say go with the tag/logo. You'll get the same effect and won't have to worry about the iron and bags melting.

            If the test bag is still in tact enough to try it at a lower setting, I'd say give it a go. But if the bags are a non-natural fiber, you may not be able to get the iron hot enough to melt the transfer and not melt the bag.

            I know that there are also some low-temp transfers available at Michaels and elsewhere, so you might check there, too.

            Otherwise, the hang tag/luggage tag is a great idea.

              I Like the luggage tag idea - then if people want to take it off and use the bag again they can!

                  I think the luggage tag idea is great as well!

                    Oh no! At least you figured it out after one and didn't ruin them all. :)

                    I agree- tags would be an easy way to go. Making a pocket and sewing them all on would be PIA. You don't need more wedding projects- trust me.
