What Are Luggage Identifiers?

Luggage identifiers are additions to your bag that make it stand out, so you can recognize it among other bags.

Identifiers allow you to easily spot your bag at the baggage carousel and ensure no one mistakenly picks up your suitcase.

11 Ways To Make Your Luggage Stand Out

From custom-made luggage tags to bright and colorful rolling suitcases, here are 11 ways to make your suitcase stand out when you travel.

1. Invest In Bold, Colorful Luggage

The best way to make your luggage stand out from the crowd? Find a unique bag in a vibrant hue!

If you thought all luggage looked and performed the same, allow us to introduce you to our flexible line of luggage at Rollink.

From bright shades of yellow and green to lively hues of pink and blue, our wide array of color options will help your luggage stand out in a sea of mundane suitcases.

Available in a variety of colors and sizes, our luggage line includes the Flex 360° spinner, Flex Aura and Flex Vega (more on these below!).

2. Create Your Own Design

Grab some paint and get your creative juices flowing!

Whether you prefer geometric patterns or stenciling your name on your bag, nothing says custom ke hand painting your own design on your hard or soft shell luggage.

For soft shell luggage, opt for fabric paint. Looking for a durable soft shell suitcase? Check out our Flex Aura luggage collection!

For hard shell, grab a bottle of spray paint in your favorite color. Here’s some hard shell options from Rollink!

3. Spice Up Your Neutral-Colored Bag With A Luggage Tag

If you aren’t ready to trade in your neutral suitcase just yet, spice up your luggage with a smaller statement piece instead.

Whether it’s a classic leather tag with your name stamped on it or a whimsical unicorn-printed tag (just because!), a luggage tag is a quick fix when it comes to adding the perfect pop of color to your neutral-toned suitcase. Plus, your contact information will come in handy in case your luggage gets lost.

4. Strap On A Luggage Belt

If you’re looking for a functional yet stylish luggage identifier, look no further than a luggage belt.

From bright and chic designer options to heavy duty, TSA-approved luggage straps that add an extra layer of protection, luggage belts can help your suitcase stand out while holding your travel essentials together in the event of a zipper fail!

5. Wrap Your Suitcase In A Luggage Cover

If you’re concerned about scuffs and scratches while traveling, look no further than a luggage cover.

Made of either transparent PVC plastic or a colorful spandex and polyester blend, luggage covers provide your suitcase with extra protection and help you easily find your bag on the conveyor belt!

6. Add Stickers To Your Luggage

Show off where you’ve been, where you’re headed or your bucket list destinations by decorating your luggage with stickers!

Whether it’s flaunting that Taj Mahal sticker you got from your trip to India or plastering your suitcase with your favorite vintage travel decals, stickers are a great way to showcase your personality.

Rollink tip: Add a new sticker to your luggage from each place you visit!

7. Sew On Embroidered Patches 

Have soft shell luggage and your sewing kit at hand? Put your sewing skills to the test by stitching on an embroidered patch or two! 

Similar to stickers, you can flaunt your personality with travel-themed patches. 

Rollink tip: Secure your iron-on patches to your luggage by stitching the edges. 

8. Wrap A Vibrant Ribbon Around The Handles 

On a tight budget? Tying a colorful ribbon around your suitcase’s handle or zipper is the way to go. 

A bubble gum pink hue or fluorescent orange cloth can help you easily spot your luggage while waiting at the baggage claim area. 

The best part? You can find fabric scraps and ribbons at any craft store or recycle the ribbons you have at home from birthday presents and gift baskets! 

Rollink tip: Is your ribbon too long? Trim it down or tie it in a bow to ensure it doesn’t get caught in the conveyor belt. 

9. Cover Your Luggage With Decorative Tape 

Whether it’s glitter tape or washi tape in a vintage travel theme, wrap your luggage handles in hard-to-miss decorative tape so your bag stands out during those hectic moments at the baggage carousel. 

Rollink tip: You can purchase a roll of decorative tape from your local hardware or craft store for as little as $2! 

10. Strap On A Handle Grip 

From candy apple red to lime green and more, strapping on a handle grip adds to your bag’s personality and helps you get a better hold when scurrying to your boarding gate. 

11. Clip On A Luggage Tracker 

Tech-savvy adventure-seekers, this one’s for you! 

A recent industry report found that an estimated 220,000 checked bags among United States airlines were lost or damaged in April 2022 — a massive 135% increase from April of the previous year. 

While the carry-on lifestyle is one solution to prevent you from experiencing airmageddon, investing in reliable luggage trackers and smart tags can help you track down your checked bag even in the most crowded and chaotic queues. 

Luggage trackers can provide you with real-time location updates no matter where you or your luggage may be. They work using Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, cellular data or a simple QR code.
