Luggage Tags in Black and White?


 Share

Recommended Posts

We have always printed the luggage tags out at my wife's work using a color printer, but she's still working from home and only goes to the office once every couple weeks.

Should we make a special trip to print them in color, or will black and white be okay?

With all the hoops to jump through in order to cruise, this seems rather inconsequential now that I've typed it out, but oh well.  🙂

One thing I have found is that if you buy the luggage tag you should consider the environment in which they will be used.  I have found that in the tropical climates where humidity is prominent the printed tickets tend to discolor the plastic sleeves of the luggage tags.  I combat this by printing the tags and then covering over them with clear packaging tape.  This prevents the color or B&W ink or laserjet ink from marking up your tags.

We finally bought some of those for our last cruise in Jan 2020.  They are great

My TA provided me with luggage tags .  But I usually carry on my luggage.  I have had too many issues with damaged luggage on cruises.

I carry mine on too, but still affix the luggage tags anyways.  Gotta make sure the people on the airplane (that I'll never see again) know I'm getting on a boat 😆

after 18 months of no cruising, I'm looking forward to repeating this ritual in just 3 weeks!

I've wanted to do this but I scared of the baggage handlers at the airport getting confused and either ripping it off or losing my luggage

Yup! same! There's something both really relaxing and really exciting about putting them on at that stage. Like both 'finally we're at the last step' and 'OMG IT'S HERE!'

We'll be feeling the same way twice...passing the Antigen test AND putting the luggage tags on just before the embarkation process...it's a two'fer! 🤣

My TA sent my edocs and luggage tags today, super excited. Also FedEx just delivered my home test. We will be in Orlando the week before our cruise so I will affix my tags that Sat night. I ordered the clear plastic tag holders, so I don't have to wear my bathroom the entire cruise 😝.

I feel like seeing that "negative" result will be when I can finally breathe and say, "Holy crap, this one isn't getting cancelled, we are really going!" (Two cancelled cruises, three other cancelled vacations, and two years later)
