16 Apr

april-tervis2Are you a superhero or do you know someone who is?  According to Wikipedia, “a superhero is a type of heroic character who possesses extraordinary talents, supernatural phenomena, or superhuman powers and who is dedicated to a moral goal or protecting the public.” If you identify with Warner Brothers Superman™, Batman or Marvel’s Captain America, or Spiderman, you can now enjoy your daily beverages in a personalized superhero Tervis waterbottle.

In addition to superheros, you can pick from Peanuts Snoopy, Hello Kitty, Dorothy’s Ruby Red Slippers from the Wizard of Oz or Disney’s Minnie Mouse ord Mickey™ Mouse for your design.  These are beloved characters and icons available now for the first time on your personalized water bottle.  Hydration on the go has never been so fun!  What wonderful gift ideas for kids of all ages!  These would make fun gifts for camp gifts, birthdays, friends who love to work out at the gym, and more!

These high quality, shatterproof double-walled water bottles come with an easy-open snap lid that you can access on the move.  The opening is large enough to fit ice cubes and the 24 oz bottle fits most cup holders.  Most superheros want their water to be ice cold, right?  Personalized with your name in script or block lettering in your choice of imprint color, the addition of your name to your choice of fun design creates a water bottle that will be loved. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Made in America. Tervis Tumbler products are BPA free and made in the USA.

The A, B, C’s of Luggage Tags

22 Jun

june-luggageTags

Have you ever wondered the best way to personalize luggage tags?  There is the typical “name, address and phone number” answer but it really depends on how the tags are being used and who will be using them to know what’s appropriate.

Of course luggage tags can be used for suitcases, which is the traditional purpose.  But some other uses include identification of gym bags, backpacks, diaper bags, camp bags, athletic bags, computer bags, ski bags, golf bags, tote bags, musical instrument cases, brief cases and more.  Deciding which type of tag to choose and what information to include depends on the purpose of the tags.

For adults using luggage tags for suitcases while traveling and for other bags being carried by adults, the printed information should primarily include the following information:

(1) Your full name or at least your last name;

(2) A mobile phone number.  If your luggage is lost, the mobile number will be the easiest way to reach you. If there is no mobile number available use a home number;

(3) An email address.  Depending how security-conscious you are, you may consider skipping your primary personal e-mail address and setting up secondary e-mail just for your travel purposes;

(4) An alternate phone number. Consider listing an extended family member’s number who can assist if you are on the road.

Remember, since your luggage is out of your hands when you do short or long domestic or international travel, you do not want to publicize too much personal information. A number of experts suggest not listing a home address, as it can easily alert burglars that you are away from home when they see you traveling.  And it’s very infrequent that anyone would ship or deliver a lost suitcase to your home without contacting you first.

For items being used by teens or adults, the luggage tag should include a full name (or at least last name) and a home or mobile phone number.  If the tag is being used on a young child’s bag, for security reasons, consider simply an imprint such as: “Call (123) 456-7890 if Found” without a name or other information at all to prevent any issues with strangers.

If you wonder what type of luggage tags are best, we would suggest adding brightly colored luggage tag if you use a standard black suitcase.  This will make finding your suitcase much easier as there are usually so many bags that look the same when traveling.  A unique tag might even prevent the wrong party from picking up your suitcase thinking it was theirs.

Luggage tags are a practical and stylish way to make identifying bags easily.  When selecting a luggage tag you might notice different materials, such as laminated, brass, leather, or acrylic.  They are all very strong and useful.  So simply determine a style you feel the user will enjoy.  There are designs and materials suitable for everything from executive travel to a diaper bag!
