I am surprised to find that their are so many bad reviews. I use this tag on my badge at work and my patients love to look at my kids! I love this product and order a new one every year!

Have many - all great!
I am surprised to see the negative reviews! I have several of these I use myself and many more I have given as gifts. None have broken! The photo printed beautifully. The back side is blank - just use a Sharpie. I agree with those who say put limited info on your luggage tag - I use a PO Box for my business mail so I just use that and my phone number.... and my sister's phone number in case things get really lost!
I would strongly recommend these. Going to buy a few more with the 40% off sale and stock up for birthday and Christmas.
Oh - the tags have survived three trips to Europe and many more within the US.

Not a good luggage tag
Its a plastic tag with only a picture, my husband travels and lot and it broke after a couple trips.

Like a user before me I should have read the reviews! The product has nowhere to put your contact information. You can write it with a sharpie, but that looks tacky if you have really bad handwriting.
I would think Shutterfly would make the option for consumers to have their contact information custom printed on the backside, but no.
Expect only the picture on the front side, do NOT expect a sleeve or spot to put your contact information.

The challenge I have with the luggage tags is that they are not very sturdy, despite the hard plastic. For a very frequent traveler (weekly), each of the luggage tags I ordered has broken. I just used a sharpie to put the name / address, but the breakage is a real problem.

I'll admit it... I should have read the reviews.
However, I've been very satisfied with everything we've previously purchased from Shutterfly. Who sells a Luggage Tag that doesn't have a way to put an ID card in there? I tried using a Sharpie, but that doesn't seem to do the trick. I'll end up using a label, but what a terrible product from a normally great organization. They should update the product to make it fully functional, but at the minimum the description should state the limitation.

Don't bother: Nowhere to Put Your Contact Info!
I just ordered one for my husband for Father's Day - he's a pilot so it was a cute idea from my 18 month old son with their picture on it.
The luggage tag has no where to put your personal contact info, should your luggage get lost! There is no sleeve with a piece of paper to put your name/phone or email - completely useless. Don't bother.

Luggage tag disappointment
This is the first and last time for me to get luggage tags from Shutterfly. Have always gotten them from another site, but they were temporarily out of the rectangular ones when I needed to order this time. I didn't notice -- my fault -- that these were only printed on one side. Big disappointment there. And they're more expensive than the other site's ones. Plus the ones I've gotten in the past have always been true to the colors and intensities on my monitor. These were very washed out and blah. Very disappointing.

These are quality luggage tags. I actually ordered them as gifts to my Mom of all the grandkids. She shows them off like a ''brag book'' of sorts. Because they can be hung anywhere, I ordered some for myself and hang them in my van, Dad's car and anywhere else I can think of. They make wonderful gifts. The editing tool offers so many ways to customize yours. I absolutely love these tags.

I would have ordered for a whole lax team, but....
I really wish you had the option of adding a photo or information to both sides of this tag. All three of my children play lacrosse and travel a lot for tournaments.
It would be so great to be able to put a fun photo of each of the players on one side using the caption for last name and jersey number, but have the logo of the team and a telephone number if someone finds a lost bag on the opposite side. One of my girls was on a team with a tag like this but it had the logo on one side and contact information on the other. My phone number happened to be the contact number because I was "team mom". Two years after the tournament, someone contacted me because one of the girls had left this tag on her bag and left it at a local tournament. I was able to contact her and she was able to get her equipment back. SFly, change the design PLEASE. People are begging to use your products, if you haven't noticed.

These made a great gift for Christmas this year, especially since in a few months is our family vacation.

Love the finished product. Like how very sturdy they are, and how crisp the image is.
I just took a SHARPIE and labeled the information on the blank side. NO PROBLEMS at all. You would do that for normal luggage tags anyways.
I would definitely purchase again.

These are sturdy tags, and the pictures look great. I used the "Caption" option to write my address and phone number on them and although it is not a super crisp text printing, is is definitely readable and works for the purpose!
ALSO! The customer service team here is AMAZING! Especially George (Jorge?). Thank you for your help!!

I was just going to order these
I was just going to order these for my kids school backpacks with mom and dad info on them, but realized you can not put information on them. I thought they would be like the cards and books where there would be a template for text to put information on the other side. you can even add information to Mugs, so why not the reverse side of these tags?

These tags are really sturdy and have lasted far longer than other tags I've purchased. I travel almost every week so my luggage gets a workout and these tags do well.
I've seen the comments from people who haven't figured out that you need to add a comment with your contact info to the tag. It's pretty obvious, and very easy to do.

I have used these luggage tags in the past and just ordered more. Other tags have been torn off our luggage but these stay on. I type my information on a piece of paper and then use clear packing tape to put it on the non-photo side. I've never had any issues with it coming off. I would recommend these tags to anyone who wanted one that is unlike anyone else's.

Responding to the reviews
I haven't purchased these tags yet (hence the fair reasoning for 3 stars), but definitely WILL now simply because the reviews are so mixed. I have to see/feel/use for myself.
I just want to say as the owner of my own small group travel business for women I do NOT recommend my travelers putting their detailed contact info on their luggage tags where exposed to all wandering eyes.
A Sharpie as mentioned by others would work just fine to put ONLY a cell phone number and first name on the blank side of the tag. That is the only information the airline needs if your luggage is lost. Put your detailed contact information inside the luggage.

You Can Add ID Info to Luggage Tags!!
There are several negative comments about the inability of adding ID info to the luggage tags. Shutterfly does indeed provide you with the option of adding this info by adding a "Caption" at the bottom of your photo. Check it out - it works great.

Having traveled all over the world i love these tags. Yes there is no room for your id BUT i use it to easily identify my bag no matter how the tag is flipped. Perfect gift for someone traveling!
December 11, 2012
I haven't purchased this yet, but in reading the reviews, I have a suggestion. For those displeased with the lack of ID info on the back, you can simply create a caption on the front that can include enough characters to add name, address, city, state and zip. I hope this helps.
