SwaggerTag: the new best travel friend!
Naomi knows that life is full of ups and downs, and that’s how she came about naming her blog, This Roller Coaster Called Life. She is also a huge fan of all things Disney, and was looking for a tag she could customize with some of her family’s favorite characters. I believe she learned about SwaggerTag from another blog review, and then connected with me on Twitter.
In her October 15, 2013 review, I love that Naomi calls SwaggerTag her new best travel friend! Here’s more of what she said:
“So, I saw this really cool product and had to try it out!”
“Here’s my new best travel friend, SwaggerTag!”
“First of all, it can be personalized. (…) Too cool! Really, the sky’s the limit in personalizing these. The SwaggerTag comes with a small paper ring that makes cutting out an image to just the right size simple.”
“[M]y son is begging for the green SwaggerTag. Yes, he REALLY likes it that much!”
“Planning your next trip? I think SwaggerTags would make a great addition to your carry-ons. I know my carry-ons will be sporting SwaggerTags for my next journey!”
Naomi is also an Independent Vacation Planner affiliated with The Magic For Less Travel. While her specialty is vacation to the varied Disney destinations, she’d would be happy to help you plan vacations to other destinations, as well.

SwaggerTag ID Tags get a listing as a WC Cool Finds
The word is spreading: SwaggerTags are cool for school! I’m very pleased that we’ve been included in the September 2013 issue of West Coast Families Magazine. You can find us on page 9, or take a peak at this online issue.
WestCoast Families Magazine is the longest running, largest family publication in the Greater Vancouver area, with 50,000 copies printed each issue, 9 times per year. They focuses on information that is important to local families with regular features like family travel, health, education, contests, cool finds, and parenting, and have become THE Lifestyle guide for local, active, urban families.
How one woman leverages her words.
<Pamela Maynard is a social media force! When we first connected, I was very happy to hear she was interested in reviewing our personal tags and running a contest. I was flattered because her “Mom Does Reviews” blog had an impressive reach. It wasn’t until yesterday that I learned she had so much more on offer.
When Pamela posts, she invites a connected group of other bloggers to post her review to their own websites. Instead of reaching one blog, SwaggerTag was posted to at least 10 (I may learn of more) on August 22, 2013. Given that each member of this group has impressive followings of their own, her review packed quite an amazing punch. Good thing she’s really liked SwaggerTag. And just to add a cherry on top of it all, SwaggerTag’s enjoyed a welcome upswing in Facebook “likes” and Twitter “followers”. Woo-hoo!
Thank you, Pamela; and way to make it work, ladies!
Picking up on Tweets about SwaggerTag
I love Twitter for all the connections you can make. It’s so cool that I was able to see the tweets about SwaggerTag from @TheStephGlover, @TodaysEveryMom and @JoulesDellinger in an exchange July 17, 2013. I had recently mailed a few samples to Stephanie Glover of A Grande Life for review, and she was obviously quite pleased about receiving them. She, and many other bloggers are heading to BlogHer13, the 9th annual conference for women bloggers, taking place at the Sheraton Chicago July 25 to 27, 2013. I hope everyone has a great time.
After receiving her package, Stephanie sent us an e-mail: “I love them! You guys are so great with customer service. I was surprised with the custom tags! I am using them for BlogHer so I’ll make sure to snag some pictures of them in the airport and have my review up after I get back!” I’m really looking forward to Stephanie’s upcoming review!
Swag for any Bag
PBG Lifestyle Magazine features Swaggertag as a creative tag solution for back-to-school.
Hollie Hosler of PBG Lifestyle Magazine paints a compelling picture of why every kid’s school backpack should have a SwaggerTag in her August 12, 2013 posting. And this happens to be the original catalyst for why these creative tags were developed:
“You spend a horrific amount of money on the backpack at the mall that your lovely child just “had” to have this upcoming school season. As they get into their homeroom class, they see three other students with the same exact bag, overtaking the spotlight that your child was supposed to have. The room, now overpopulated with identical book bags, becomes a worry for you, and a nuisance to your youngster. Here’s the answer: SwaggerTag.”
Here’s a little more of what Hollie had to say in her article:
• “Once you have your tag, let the creative juices flow as you customize and personalize your tag any way you want.”
• “This locket-style product lets you keep personal information on the inside, so it stays private unless it’s opened.”
• “[T]heir backpack will go back to its rightful owner if it was ever lost or got mixed up.
• “They are built to last as well.(…)The ties are strong enough to endure any extracurricular-active lifestyle.”
• “Not only are they useful at school, but SwaggerTags are perfect for anyone!”
PBG Lifestyle Magazine was created in 2008 to appeal specifically to the over 50,000 plus year-round residents of Palm Beach Gardens and visitors to this Everglades, Florida area. As the headquarters of the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of America and the self-proclaimed “Golf Capital of the World,” the city has become a magnet for high net worth individuals and celebrities from across the country and the world.
SwaggerTags are Sturdy Travel Gear Tags
You know how it is. In the rush to get the family off for vacation, a few things are left undone despite your planning and best intentions. This was the case for Marlynn Schotland of “Urban Bliss Life” who posted her review of SwaggerTag Identification Tags July 25, 2013 as great travel gear tags. As such, I only recently found out about it.
Marylyn and her family tried them out on a long weekend family trip to Seattle, and here’s what she said:
• “You can open the compartment of the tag easily to replace the factory images with your own. Then they snap back together and remain solidly closed. I was skeptical, but they really did remain closed throughout our entire trip.”
• “They handled really well throughout our road trip. Kids can be pretty tough on these type of objects, and these SwaggerTags are sturdy.”
• “The colors are cute, and I like the round design of the tags. I also like that our contact info is hidden and not just hanging out for everyone around us to see.”
• “SwaggerTags are extremely well-priced. At just $3.99, I think this is a high quality product that is functional and reliable for everyday use, travel, dog tags, you name it.”
“Urban Bliss Life” is a Lifestyle Blog for Modern Mom Entrepreneurs. Marylynn is a former broadcast news anchor/reporter and public relations director. She’s been loving living life to the fullest as a busy mom entrepreneur since 2005, and writing in the blogosphere for a loooong time. She started a mom blog called Maternity to Madness in October of 2004, and have since blogged about travel, style, design, food & wine, fashion, entertaining, motherhood, entrepreneurship, social media, public relations, marketing, Portland, Oregon events, book reviews, and work/life balance. So why does she call her blog “Urban Bliss Life” when she lives in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon? Urban Bliss is a state of mind, not a location.
SwaggerTag triple-heads it as a great travel accessory into JustLuxe, Tripatini & Gastro Traveling.
Steve Mirsky has done SwaggerTag tripple service by posting his review of SwaggerTag as a great travel accessory to 3 great travel blogs: JustLuxe, Tripatini & his own blog Gastro Traveling. His article showcases 3 new travel-related products that make traveling a little easier: “At first glance, it may seem that luggage tags, portable electronic device protectors, and smart phone stands don’t warrant a spot on the latest must-have travel accessory list. But as travelers know, simpler is better and the devil is in the details. Is your smart phone protected from twisting and bumping? Is your neck pillow too bulky for stuffing in your carry-on? Can you quickly identify your luggage at baggage claim or are you one of the stragglers staring at the rotating sea of Samsonite black? Here are 3 new travel accessories that solve these problems.“
Steve then wrote: “Baggage tags…you absolutely need one but don’t want prying eyes quickly reading your personal info. SwaggerTags meet the balance of providing a unique identity without giving away everything else. The best part is you can customize your tag (which really looks like a funky locket) with any picture that matches your expression of the moment! As you can see, mine isn’t a fuzzy kitty or a beloved daughter.”
Steve’s passion is helping readers gain a better understanding of food through travel via his own blog gastrotraveling.com as well as a regular contributor to snoothmedianetwork, tripatini.com and wine2.net.
SwaggerTag picked up in The York Regions Small Business News.
On July 10th, The York Region Small Business Review picked up my re-tweet about Yashy Murphy’s “Life & Baby” blog post about SwaggerTag. So, yes…that’s a tweet of a tweet of a tweet…or re-re-tweet. I’m not sure exactly how it found it’s way into this great Toronto small business daily online publication, but I was certainly pleased to see it there!
HeyDoYou reviews SwaggerTag I.D. Tags
It’s been a bit of a whirlwind lately on the blog front, and I just caught tweet of another great SwaggerTag I.D. Tags review by Bella Mumba of the lifetyle blog HeyDoYou. My samples arrived a day before she was leaving for Zambia, and she was able to really put them through their travel and ‘airport carousel’ paces, given her 3 flight transfers.
Bella posted that: “For those of you who don’t know what SwaggerTag I.D. Tags are, they are personalized and customizable I.D. tags that make identifying your belongings WAY EASIER. Whether it’s luggage, backpacks, dog(s), bicycle, guitar case, you name it; SwaggerTag I.D. Tags allow you to personalize and customize your tags according to your needs by adding your own photo, image, or logo, as well as your personal information such as your name, phone number, address etc, which can be hidden until opened.”
She went on with my new favorite quote: “I didn’t know how they would hold up during my 24 hours of flying and 3 flight transfers, and to be honest I figured they’d be destroyed by the time I got off the plane, but I was pleasantly to surprised to see them intact and without a scratch! I need more of these for everything!!”
