Old-Fashioned Luggage Labels (Dover Stickers)

A traveler might be lost without luggage, and luggage might be lost without a label. These reproductions of vintage luggage labels date from an era before supersonic jets, e-tickets, and suitcases that fit into the overhead bin. Stylish declarations of social status, they recall an age when travel promised luxury, adventure, and excitement.This treasury of antique luggage labels contains 53 colorful stickers from the heyday of the genre, which flourished from 1910 to 1940, until World War II brought tourism to a virtual halt. The privilege of travel belonged chiefly to the wealthy in the first half of the twentieth century, and these elegant stickers recall the grand hotels of Rome, Cairo, London, Amsterdam, Zürich, and other cities, in addition to carriers from around the globe, including Air France and Matson Steamship Line.Today these labels document a bygone age, and their reflections of a more gracious era in travel as well as their visual appeal make them highly prized by collectors. They’re also a great way to add a touch of well-traveled sophistication to any arts and crafts project.

I have purchased two books of these luggage labels, one to decorate an old suitcase and one for an art project. I was very happy with the sizes of these stickers and the variety of shapes. The color printing was of excellent quality and the stickers look as authentic as the real thing. I did find the adhesive on them to be a little weak and would suggest using some sort of glue if you are putting them on anything besides paper.

Good for smaller projects. The stickers in this book, though very colorful and historic, are also very small. Averaging about 2" x 3" or less. If you are looking for larger stickers of the size they actually used on luggage, this may not be the right fit.

These look great and would work fine if they could only hold on to the suitcase.I did all I could to prevent it - wore disposable gloves, handled them by edges, cleaned up the suitcase surface even though they were brand new.I then pressed on them so they would stick porperly. THey did. Unitl next morning when I found them almost half off....Should I use super glue now?? naah I don't think it's worth the hassle.

Like a couple of other sets I have ordered, these stickers just don't seem to be described well enough to meet my expectations. I guess they are OK for what they are (stickers), but I really bought these and the others not knowing what I might get. Not the stickers' fault, but the seller or manufacturer could probably do a better job of saying what sizes, quantities, and locations are represented.

Unlike the other individual labels I purchased these labels were in a book form. For some reason they did not stick very well. Although they have good quality, you will need to add glue to the back if doing a suitcase. Also remember that these labels are small, really small, so you would order these for a suitcase size project not a large trunk or steamer. They would be lost on that.

I'm very pleased with these luggage labels! The colors are vibrant, and the glossy paper is of good quality. Having read the multiple negative reviews about poor adhesive, I offer this suggestion: Scan each label separately and print out as needed, then add your own adhesive. (I bought these primarily for scrapbooking projects). If you scan these at high resolution and use quality paper to print them, you should be able to replicate the lovely colors--not to mention being able to scale them to your desired size. I think these labels are beautiful and quite a bargain!

Was kind of let down. Size was no more than a silver dollar and labels were limited.You had to apply more glue, and the location choices were obscure.

This booklet comes with a multitude of goodlooking old style travel/hotel stickers. Each has a white border so remember that for projects. Also, they have almost no stick, so be ready to apply a better paste or glue yourself. i bought them specifically to arrange artfully on the painted black wood frame around a mirro, then I applied decoupage over the entire placement. It made for a beautiful mirror wall hanging for a young person who someday hopes to travel the whole world :).
