Has anyone made their own luggage tag STD's / Logos????

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am trying my best to lower as many costs as possible and thought I would take a stab and making my own STD's. I love the luggage tag ideas and found that you can buy the clear luggage tag holders and Staples or Office Max. I think that a normal business card template would be the correct size, but I am having some issues trying to create them. I am also trying to creat a logo and have tried using Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, Excel, etc. and can't seem to get it right. All of my logos end up looking so cheesy! Where is everyone getting the backgrounds and the monograms that look so nice?? All of the clip art I can find is kind of goofy & doesn't look so classy. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

On a side note, I am a brand new member and every time that I try to open an attachment on previous posts, it tells me that I don't have enought points?? Do I just get points by participating? Sorry for asking such a stupid question, but I have no idea what I'm doing on here!!

 

Thanks,

Becky

Yes Sarah (aquarider) made her own luggage tags, it should be in the DIY section.

Becky,

I will do my best here. First of all to open an attachment you need 50 points. I had the same problem when I first started. I just gave you some to play with.

If you search around here Maria has been a great help in sharing how to make logos in Powerpoint. Once you get a handle on how to do it you will addicted! Hopefully she can let you know how to do it.

Good luck!

I have instructions on how to download clipart and make your own monograms/logos on our website. There are also a couple templates you can use by just adding in your own date/name/location.

Hi Becky! I have not made the luggage tags yet, but have been looking into them so that I can send them out to people right before the wedding. We found an inexpensive laminator at Office Max (or Office Depot...can't remember which one...). We wanted them to be a little sturdier, so are going this route. We priced the sleeves at $5 for 25.

 

I've also priced out places like Kinkos to have them laminate them for us and we found that buying our own laminator and the sleeves was much less expensive. We are also using the business card size - haven't started my template for this yet.

 

Best of luck with your project! Melissa

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
