    I'm still working on my tags, but what I did was bought the clear holders, I first bought them at staples, but then found much cheaper ones at walmart, so I returned the first ones.

    Then using the measurements of the cases, I chose one of the avery templates in word, that you use for printing labels and stuff, and just made them in there, that way I knew they were the right size. Then I'm just going to print them on the card stock I bought in my colors and put them in the cases.

    hope that makes sense let me know if anyone needs help.

    I was planning to print everyones name, address, and phone, but just leaving a blank line seems so much easier!

    I'm also going to mail them out ahead of time with a newsletter to update everyone on anything they need to know. Each person will get 3 luggage tags.

        I was going to print names as well, but thought it to be much easier just to make the lines, they turned out to be pretty easy!!

        Heidi, those tags look great!!

          I definitely agree - using the lines is MUCH easier!!!

          Julie- here are 2 verisions - 1st with brown outline, 2nd with light pink (personally I prefer the brown!):

            Oooh, I love them both, so I might do half and half.

            Is there anyway to send them to me so that I can edit them? I would like like to move our logo down a little and maybe make the outside line (the one you changed the colour of) a little skinnier. And, I do not want you to have to keep making the changes, you have done more than enough already.

              well the edit-able version would be in Publisher...

              how's this-

                Sorry guys, for some reason at work I can't open any attachments I get in my hotmail account. Not sure why. So, this is how we are doing it.

                I love them. The only thing is, I sound so picky, they look perfect, but when I print them out, they are really small. Can we make them a little bigger? If not, no worries, they are perfect and I love them.

                    Umm, I don't know, luggage tag size. LMAO. We are just going to laminate them and punch a hole and put ribbon on them, at least that is the plan now, I will try it and see if I like the look. So, just bigger, big enough that you can see it when looking at it. Does that help at all??
