Custom Bag Tags for Team Sports

As a Minnesota-based company, we take hockey pretty seriously here. Other youth sports are important as well, but hockey is kind of our thing. And having the proper equipment--and having it labeled it correctly with custom team bag tags--is a key component. 

Bag tags might seem like a random piece of team equipment to bring the forefront. But when you're in a locker room with 20 other kids, with identical bags and gear and jerseys, having some piece of personalization is important for order. 

Team Spirit in Custom Bag Tags

Adding tags to team bags keeps equipment in order, but also adds in another factor to cultivating a team atmosphere. Team organizations can utilize bag tags for a variety of uses. It's not just for their equipment but an overall marketing strategy. Being able to utilize a logo and colors across a team, an organization, a tournament, or some other association gives a greater sense of connection. It's a badge of pride for many athletes and their parents. Not to mention, it's also the perfect swag for tournament gift bags.

In the example to the side, you can see the custom bag tags we've created up close. Some of them are focused on a tournament, others are teams. Both can be personalized with names and numbers. Sunrise can implement any content you want to utilize on your personalized tags, as well as any colors or fonts you provide. 

On and Off the Ice

Custom bag tags are a great addition to any team regalia set or tournament swag bag. They can be used on equipment or even on luggage or any thing that could use labeling. We're a big fan of these types of projects (well, we love all our projects, TBH) but being able to support youth sports has a little extra special feel to it.  If you are looking for an inexpensive add-on for your youth sports team, custom bag tags are the way to go.

Such is the case for one Steve Diemer. If you don’t know him by his name, you probably know him by his product. Steve is the inventor of Little Cloud Nine™ travel pillow and we were lucky enough to get to pick his brain about it.

“Little Cloud Nine ™ was a travel pillow idea born years ago while I was in agony on a coach-class seat somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. Since then it’s been tested, refined and tested again. With the Little Cloud Nine ™ travel pillow, you can rest and relax in an amazingly comfortable sitting position, keeping your head, neck, and spine aligned. Our vented support cushion is reusable, inflates and deflates quickly, and stores flat in a purse or carry-on bag. Little Cloud Nine™ can be used on planes, trains, buses, cars and any other preferred mode of transportation. Little Cloud Nine™ makes a great gift for your traveling friends. Make your coach seat feel like first class with Little Cloud Nine.”

How was Sunrise Packaging able to assist in bringing the Little Cloud Nine™ to life?

 

“My product needed special welding of an inflatable material and I was stymied by not having anyone with the know how to put my product together. I called the company that makes the specialized welding equipment and asked if they would give me the name of someone who used their equipment and was good at it. The company spokesman did not hesitate. He said Rod Herdina, Sunrise Packaging, Blaine Mn was the best he knew. I called Rod and asked if he would see me and take a look at the idea. He was most gracious and invited me to come and see him. We had made several mockups and he was able to visualize how a cylindrical shape could be made using materials impervious to air. Without Rod Herdina and Sunrise Packaging it is doubtful my product would have made it to market.”

little cloud nine sbs paperboard packagingWow! Thanks, Steve! That’s high praise!

From the early stages of Steve’s design, Sunrise was there working with him from the initial concept. We used RF sealing to create the actual pillow. RF, or radio frequency, sealing uses high frequency electromagnetic energy to bond materials. In the case of the travel pillow, it was a medical grade flocked plastic that we sourced just for his product.

 

That’s right, we didn’t just packaging his product, we made it! Of course, in the end, we used our specialties–logo silkscreening and sbs paperboard packaging–to finish the job all under one roof!

You can struggle with concept planning, you can search for mockup artists, you can bounce around from manufacturer to manufacturer trying to all the pieces in place–or you can put in a call to Sunrise Packaging. We get the job done from start to finish.
