I have just begun my research into this topic of stenciling Luggage and Totes and wait until you see the many, many clever and creative options that abound!
MarkMyStuff.com will make a custom 1-line stencil from sturdy oilboard for $15. A visit to their website will net you some inexpensive ways to quickly identify your luggage from everyone else’s on the conveyor belt at the airport.
The red stenciled suitcase, shown left, comes from the ehow blog, where you will find complete “How To” instructions. [Editor’s Note: This tutorial is no longer available on the eHow website.]
I found a great little book of travel poster and luggage label stencils. This book by Penny Vedrenne contains a series of multi-overlay stencils for you to cut and use.
