The Golden Era of Travel provided extraordinary travel-themed artwork in the form of luggage labels. They were used to advertise hotels, cruise ships, train companies, airlines, and other exotic destinations. There is evidence to suggest that hotel trade-cards were occasionally affixed to items of luggage, probably to facilitate their transport to the correct establishment. Ultimately, luggage decorated with labels from important and exotic places became a symbol of one’s class and status.
The PDF downloads are crafted from digitally enhanced quality images from original vintage luggage labels. Files can be saved to your PC or MAC and then used over and over again. Each label on the sheet measures 2 1/2″.
These digital sheets are formatted to print on Avery® White High-Visibility Labels for Laser Printers 5294, 2-1/2″ which can easily be purchased online. When used with self-adhesive printer paper, these labels can be printed and pasted on many surfaces like books, laptops, boxes, pieces of luggage, and much more. They make fun party stickers too!
You can alternatively print our PDF files on any A4 paper your printer allows, like for instance a full A4 sheet sticker, and cut them off individually by using a round 2.5″ glass or shape, and a cutter. You might also want to use stickier paper if you want to paste the labels on your suitcase, as the Avery labels are easier to peal-off over time. Keep in mind that after printing, leave the labels to dry before using them, as the ink could rub off if you use them immediately.
