GBC Brand Self Laminating Luggage Tag Template

Recommended Posts

This is my luggage tag template for GBC brand “SelfSeal Self Adhesive Laminating Pouchesâ€. The size is 2 7/8 X 4 5/8. I bought them from Staples online and they come 5 to a pack with loops: GBC® SelfSealâ„¢ Clear Laminating Pouches, Luggage Tag Size with Loops at Staples®


I downloaded a luggage tag template from Becks and it gave me a great start. Thanks you Becks!!! I quickly realized after trying to print my draft we had completely different sized tags. Having Becks template helped me a ton to at least get an idea of what to do before altering it to fit my tags.


I added a square and text box to each space on the template so you could see where to lineup the photos and personal information.


If you arenâ€t familiar with PowerPoint all you need to do is copy and paste each slide on the preview pane to create an exact copy.


We also added our logo to the bottom right corner of the personal information side. For the font we used Maiandra GD, 18 pt with the shadow setting turned on. We picked a default font that Kinkos would be sure to have so we didnâ€t have to make last minute changes when we got there.


Before printing we deleted all gridlines on the personal information page and followed the lines on the photo side for cutting. That way you wonâ€t have any gridlines visible on your finished product.


We burned the file to a disc and took it to Kinkos. We chose a heavier grade paper (not cardstock). They have nice paper cutters available so we chose to cut them on our own. They wanted a ridiculous amount of money to cut them for us.


If you are using the self laminating pouches a little tip: Make sure someone is there to help you! Once you peel the backing off the tag it wants to close itself and grab the bottom. Itâ€s nearly impossible to do it one handed. I highly recommend having help.

Let me know if you have any questions! Good luck!

thank you soooo much:) I am going to buy the staples laminating tags right now. I know my guests will take FOREVER to get me personalized pictures so I am going to try Perto Vallarta postcards instead. Your original idea is 20x better and more personal!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
