Family Justice Center Tag

Custom Purple Luggage Tag from YourBagTag

While each one our personalized luggage tags are unique, we love doing custom luggage tags for events and organizations.  YourBagTags make perfect additions to event tote bags, gift bags, briefcases or even just as a standalone favor.  We have made YourBagTags for weddings and wedding showers, alumni and sorority reunions, school trips, humanitarian and missions trips, businesses,  sports teams, cheerleading and dance teams to name just a few.

For a minimal fee, we can even customize the blank address card insert with your logo and contact text as shown in the photo to the left.

This tag was done for the Family Justice Center Alliance organization to go on their conference tote bags.

Micro-Fleece Travel Blanket

Personalized Travel Blanket

Travel Blanket from YourBagTag

YourBagTag has just added another wonderful, personalized travel accessory.  The micro-fleece travel pocket blanket is a must-have travel accessory for anyone who gets cold when flying on airplanes. You no longer have to use those nasty airline blankets -- you know, the ones you can never find when boarding and you are always suspect as to when they were last cleaned. 

Our travel blanket design is similar to raingear and windbreakers that fold into a pouch. The pouch is sewn on one end of the blanket. The blanket is folded in thirds and then rolled into the pouch. Directions for folding are included. After being folded it becomes a Polarfleece Pillow. 

This blanket and it's materials are all USA made. They are made from the finest Polarfleece Polartec® by Malden Mills of Massachusetts. They are machine washable and dryable, non-pilling 100% polyester fabric; keep moisture away from the body; are light-weight yet warm and hypo-allergenic. 

Your personalized travel blanket look great on a couch, your boat's berth and can be carried easily under your arm for a sporting event to sit on and then open to cover yourself if the wind picks up. 

The blanket measures 50" X 60" and folds down to approximately 9" X 12" in it's self-containing pocket.  We currently carry the blanket in Purple and Gray.  Personalized text (up to 14 characters)  may be embroidered on the blanket pocket.

New Personalized Photo Mask Strap

Photo Scuba Mask Strap

Original Photo Used for Strap

We are very excited to tell you about our new personalized photo SCUBA mask strap.  Using dye-sublimation technology, we are able to infuse the photo image directly into the neoprene cover material.  It will stretch and won't crack or crinkle like a silk-screen image tends to do.  

Imagine a photo of your favorite underwater critter.  I took this picture in Bonaire about a year and half ago.

This is the first in a new line of products we will be developing over the next couple of months so stay tuned!

YourBagTag Adds Personalized Wetsuit Zipper Pull

YourZipTag™ - 8 Colors to choose from


We developed a new line of personalized wetsuit zipper pulls. After a recent diving trip aboard the Caribbean Explorer II, a liveaboard dive boat, we kept having trouble picking our wetsuit out from the other 5 hanging on the back deck that looked just like ours.  Hey, black wetsuits are just like black pieces of luggage!  They need brightly colored personalized tags to help pick  them out of the crowd.  In keeping with our other product names, we are calling them YourZipTags™. They are made of the same high-quality polypropylene webbing as our other Scuba products.  The YourZipTag is 3/4" wide and is approximately 24 inches long (the same length as the stock zipper pull currently on your wetsuit).

Own a dive or surf shop that rents wetsuits out?  Your wetsuits will stand out on that crowded beach or dive boat.  Add your URL and you have a great advertisement for your shop.

How about a dive or surf club?  Add your club name or nickname to the YourZipTag.

New YourOwnTag™ - Create Your Own Bag Tag Masterpiece

YourOwnTag Luggage Tag

Create YourOwnTag Masterpiece

Over the past year we have received many requests for a blank version of our YourBagTags.  Yesterday we made our new YourOwnTag available on our website.  It is a blank version of our very popular YourBagTag.   Made out of the same quality materials and you can select from 22 vibrant colored, sturdy ribbon handles.

Like all our other YourBagTags, inside each tag, behind a velcro flap, is a blank address card or you can slide in one of your own business cards.

Currently the tag only comes in black since some of the fabric paints we tested tended leave a dark outline around the painted area.  We are continuing to test other fabric paints to see if we can find a solution.

These tags make perfect inexpensive gifts for your friends, families, teachers, coaches, and others.  It is a great project for your art class, scout troop or after-school activity.  

We offer a set of 6 iridescent Scribbles® fabric paints from Duncan. 

YourBagTag Gets a New Logo

New Image

We started YourBagTag two years ago and to keep our costs down, our logo was just colorizing each of the word segments in YourBagTag with a different color  -  YourBagTag.  We wanted a new logo that would represent our company in a bit more playful and whimsical way.  We think our new logo captures that really well while holding on to our the roots of our simple start.

Custom Logo YourTankTags for Your Dive Club

YourTankTag™ - Personalized Name Tag for SCUBA Air Tanks

On the heels of the success of our SCUBA BC name tag, we are introducing the YourTankTag™.  YourTankTag is made of 3 inch wide polypropylene webbing which wraps around the air tank and has 5 inches of Velcro® sewn on to each end.  It can be personalized with your name, Dive Club or on-line SCUBA board nickname.  For dive shops or instructors, you make consider the names of your divemasters or instructors or even "STUDENT" to easily identify your class when doing those quarry or ocean beach dives.  The 3 inch webbing will facilitate a second line of text but it makes the letters smaller.

YourTankTag retails for $19.95.  You may also want to consider a SCUBA BC name tag

These personalized SCUBA tags make perfect gifts for those divers in your life.  YourTankTags are only available in black webbing.

Blank YourBagTag


Luggage Tags as Art


Add Your Own Flair


Be Creative


We are developing an idea that is a result of a number of you requesting "blank" YourBagTags.  This would allow you to create an truly unique YourBagTag with your favorite fabric paint, markers, etc.  To test the idea and the materials (paint) that would properly adhere to the tags, we asked a group of 8 year-old girls from our village's Girl Scout Brownie Troop to create their own YourBagTags with our blanks and fabric paint.

As you can see by the images on the left, they were very creative indeed. 8 years old is probably about as young as you would want to offer this type of project to.  Handling the liquid paint is a bit tricky and requires a pretty steady hand.  We thought we would offer the blank tags in a variety of our current base tag colors including black, red, neon green, bright blue, and pink but not all tag colors take the paint well (tend to bleed).  All of our handle colors would be available as a choice.

The price would be $4.95 per tag with quantity price breaks above 50, 100, and 500+.  We are also thinking of offering the a fabric paint set.

So are you looking for a great summer fun craft project or a unique and creative gift?  How about a personalized luggage tag for Mom, Dad, Grandma, or your favorite teacher?  Drop us an email and let us know what you think!
