mystery product revealed
According to the World Tourism Organization, international tourist arrivals surpassed the milestone one billion tourists globally for the first time in history in 2012. When multiplying that by the luggage each traveler carries and the valet services that support traveling, it becomes apparent that small but critically important components in the travel industry are luggage and valet tags. Badger Tag & Label Corporation is seeing a resurgence in requests for these tags and the complexity of features that make up each tag.
Luggage tags are not those that an individual traveler places on his/her suitcase, rather they are commonly known as a bellman's tag, claim tag, front desk tag, or baggage claim tag. Used extensively by hotels, this type of tag may include room number, bag quantity, and agreement. A combination tag and label allows hotel staff to adhere a numbered label to each bag, further assuring each piece ends up in the proper room. Tour companies are also high volume users of luggage tags.
Valet tags are used by hotels, restaurants, airports, athletic clubs, hospitals, casinos, and other facilities that offer valet parking service. Typically they are three- or four-part tags with the parts perforated between. The parts may consist of a windshield or dashboard section, stub that remains with the keys, and claim ticket. Information printed on the parts may include matching numbers, vehicle details, agreement and vehicle diagram.
