    So here's how to make my luggage tags. They really were very simple and cost effective. Sometimes I love running my own business--I get to write off all of my office supplies!

    These were my supplies:
    • Laminating Machine - normally $100 but I got it on clearance at Staples for $48 and I had a coupon!
      Paper Cutter
      Luggage tags - The Office Depot brand are way better than the Staples brand. Both were $12.99 for 25 tags and straps
      Photos - 2 per page, 3x4 and .26 each page =.13 each photo

    I mail merged all of my guests info into a word lable document. I did a custom size of 2.3"x3.8".

    All photos were royalty free images from the internet. I just right clicked and saved to a flash drive for easy printing. I have no idea if they are from Jamaica or not! I figured a palm tree on an awesome beach would do the job just fine!
    ** I do recommend that the files be 50MB or higher so the pictures come out clearly. My Bikini Girl is a little fuzzy around the edges but you have to look really closely!

    You will have to crop the photos down to a 2.25"x3.75". There is an option of doing 2x3" photos at 4 per page, but I thought these might be too small. If I ever make luggage tags again, I'll try them and let you know!

    In total it was about $.75 per tag

    Here is the finished product! I was really pleased with them!
    Our guests that are couples going on the 5/4 trip will get 1 tag each. Those going for the full week 8/7 will get 2 each, as will the singles. The bridal party members will get 3 each so they can label their carry-ons. That was probably unnecessary, but I was having a lot of fun with the laminator!

    I'm mailing them out to everyone with my psycho pre-travel letter.

    Here is the link to the template and contents. It's for Jamaica in general, Negril in particular, and Couples Swept Away specifically.
