    I'll have to check those out. I'd like something clip on like that rather than the bracelet, I think. Thanks for the tip!

      I was thinking the clip too, and they are cheap, I found them on ebay...I think the bracelet will be a little bulky, and the clips are pretty sturdy once clipped on clothes so I think they'll work great - they'll just remind me of another day at the office!!

      I'm also considering the retractable clip reel (with the string that you can pull out and then it retracts back in) Not sure if I want to pay the extra...

      If you want the seller I'm watching on ebay just let me know!

        I hadn't thought of a clip!! I was planning on getting a wrist coil key chain thingy... do you think those are too bulky? I do know that they are expensive

          I've been trying to find some "closing" holders too, so thanks for the link! Although I do have some open ones, and those are pretty cheap, so if they worked maybe I'll just stick with them.

          For the fastener, I bought some plastic cord stuff from Micheal's and was going to make it like a lanyard. They had tons of colors and it was only $3 for enough for all of them. Although I like the fastener idea too. Hmmm.

            I used pouchncoil.com for my luggage tag loops, and they were so helpful with all of my questions. They have the wrist coils, reels, and clips too!

              I think these key and tip holders are so cute, but we're not staying at an AI and I imagine everyone will just be charging drinks, including the tips, to their rooms. Guess I could still use them as a key holder, don't you think?

              Also, I can't pull up the templates just yet, but did someone say they are formatted by using a business card template? Is that the correct size?

                Most of the holders are business card size. And a lot of people use these at other places than just AI. Even if you are charging to your room most people carry some small bills for tipping. And yes I think they are perfect for keeping track of your room key.

                  autjo - That website is EXACTLY what I've been looking for!!! The wrist coils are the cheapest I have found so it's perfect, thank you! :)

                  Also, I keep debating on luggage tags... do you just give them to people in the OOT bag or before?

                    I really loved the idea of luggage tags, so I am giving them out ahead of time with a pre-travel info packet. I am using business cards to print luggage tags and also the keycard/tip holder!
