New Travel Tags

So I'm probably going to go with one of the Paragon tags although I just emailed DD to see if I could get a sample bag tag from them to see what it looks like. So the options are a full color acrylic tag similar to the existing tags bug thicker (the blue one in the pic), a clear acrylic tag with a simplified design (I'd probably get clear orange acrylic), or a metal tag with a simplified design (I'm thinking green or orange).

DD has photo quality printing on their tags but I'm not sure how durable they are or if they have something that will delaminate, etc. Anyway, do you guys have any preference?

Considering these are going to be multi-year tags, I would aim for durability and go with the metal (albeit I don't know how acrylic tags compare as I've never had one).

Even on those, there's a tendency for the tags to fade. Try to go with a design where the numbers are prominent and large like the one on the acrylic tag pictured.

Do metal tags rust? If so, I like the Blue tag

I simply prefer metal... I handle enough plastic as it is.

Metal and acrylic going head to head, I'm surprised. I'm pretty sure the metal won't rust and it looks like I'll need to come up with a new travel tag design

I prefer the design detail of the one on the right, the one in the middle looks *yawn* like any other bag tag, but depending on how intricate of a design, or even something simple and smooth that pops, a metal tag could pretty well.

Basically what I'm looking for is something unique, maybe even slightly flashy, that will grab the attention of other people and either say "hey what's that?" or "hey, I have one of them, that guy know's what's up, I need to meet him and swap tags", I see something like the center one getting lost in a key ring of bag tags.

The one on the right would end up looking something like this:



I think for me it's between the metal and the full color one that pops as Martin said. The only thing I'm worried about with the full color tags is fading over time where the metal obviously wouldn't have that issue.

I think the clear acrylic would be freaking cool.
