Here’s Where it All Began
The bag tag is one of those inventions that is so ingenious that we more often than not take this indispensable little invention for granted. Indeed, the inherent usability of these nifty little promotional items is one of the reasons why custom bag tags make for such a perfect corporate branded product.
We’ll get into all of that later though. For now, let’s take a brief moment to go back to the start…
The luggage tag has officially been around since way back in 1882 when it was patented by a New Brunswick resident named John Michael Lyons as a smart way for travelers to keep track of their luggage should it happen to go missing while in transit. As a quick fix, he came up with the simple idea of using some kind of identifying marker to attach to the luggage so that if it did happen to end up somewhere it shouldn’t be, it could easily be identified and returned to the rightful owner.
Thankfully, printed luggage tags have come a long way since their original appearance as a bland paper ticket. That is not to say that custom bag tags are not more popular than ever. It is now standard practice for passengers of all sorts to mark their bags when they travel, and many prefer to do so with their own signature style statement that can easily be used for identification purposes.
Today, corporate luggage tags are embossed and printed in a huge variety of eye-catching styles, shapes, and colors to provide a convenient way not for people to keep track of their luggage in style, but to help maximize exposure for your brand.
An Easy Way to Generate Huge Returns and Worldwide Exposure
Research by the Advertising Speciality Institute has found that overall, the branded product advertising is the most respected and highly regarded form of advertising, especially with millennial and generation X’ers. In fact, the average American household owns no less than 30 promotional items. That’s a lot of swag!
So the question becomes, with all the great options for branded merchandise out there, why choose branded luggage tags?
Below, we are going to break down some of the main reasons that custom luggage tags are a smart investment for any type of company.
1. Bulk Luggage Tags Are Incredibly Affordable
Sure, engraved bag tags are already an inexpensive way to leverage your brand’s exposure. But the option to purchase bulk luggage tags also means that the more you buy, the more you save.
With prices as low as 26 cents an item, there is no good reason not to get generous with this highly practical and easy way to promote your company name and what it stands for.
2. Take Your Brand Across the Globe
The great thing about investing in a branded product like custom bag tags is that they are not only affordable but are designed to travel. This means that your brand could be raking in tons of free exposure as it makes its way around the world attached to a piece of luggage.
Custom bag tags don’t just make travel more convenient, they are built to be looked at. Since they are literally designed to make traveling more convenient, numerous passersby are likely to sneak a peek as an attractive bag tag comes floating by. This means that you can count on generating the type of long-distance exposure that would be hard to drum up otherwise.
3. So Much to Choose From
Choosing from the great variety of luggage tags available to sport your logo is almost as fun as using them.
For instance, gorgeous Metallic Luggage Tags are an instant classic that will look great on almost any type of luggage. The minimum order is just 100 tags, but the more you order the more you save. This means that you could be paying as little as $1.99 each for bulk luggage tags with your company logo screen printed or debossed into a durable soft touch Polyurethane tag with a handy adjustable strap.

4. Practical and Functional
Research by the PPIA has found that functionality is one of the top three reasons that people will be more likely to keep a promotional product.
