The tags were printed on vinyl, and laminated with a protective coating to minimize scuffs and scratches. The vinyl was then mounted to a sheet of 1/8th inch white acrylic, and then laser-cut.

Once the tags were finished, John and Sam made a trip to the Exergy "service course" (the team headquarters) to mount the tags.

Small holes were drilled into the case itself, and pop-rivets were used to permanently mount the tags to the luggage.

The finished product is an excellent example of how Trademark can add a personalized touch to just about anything. The tags are stylish, unique, and should withstand a full season of international travel.
