How do I attach the shipping label?
Your shipping label should be securely attached to your bag to avoid shipping delays, and this can be done in a few ways! The preferred method of attaching your label is to use a carrier luggage tag (a “Fly Tag”), but you can also attach your label using shipping tape or a LugLess provided tag. Just make sure that it is impossible for your tag to detach from your bag.

What is a fly tag?
These Fly Tags are self adhesive, and wrap around the handle of your luggage
- Pack as you normally would for airline travel but avoid prohibited items.
- Insert the COPY label inside your luggage as a backup. If you have more than one bag ensure the tags correspond with the correct luggage or you could incur additional fees.
- Lock your luggage using a luggage lock or a zip tie.
- Attach the label securely to the outside of the luggage with either a clear packing tape, a fly tag, or a LugLess tag. See below for bag specific instructions.
Label attached with a fly tag
If you didn't purchase a shipping kit, the most reliable way to secure your label to a canvas bag or luggage handle is with a "Fly Tag" that can be obtained at your local FedEx® and UPS® shipping center.
Label attached with a LugLess tag
If you opted for a shipping kit, you will receive your shipping label, a LugLess tag, and two zip ties (per bag). Simply insert the label into the tag, slip the zip ties through the holes on the tag and around a non-telescoping handle, and zip them closed!
Label attached with tape
If you don't have access to a "Fly Tag" then you can secure the label using clear packing tape. Be sure to wrap the tape completely around the bag, as shown below:
Please view an example of an improperly attached tag below. When a label is not securely attached, it is at risk of falling off while in transit:
