Freebies from the Crib: UBrand

This freebie comes from Michelle Warford, once a producer for Yahoo! and now mother of two and creator of cool and practical UBrand luggage identification tags.

Just like any good invention, this one came from Michelle's personal experience which made her think "there must be a better way."

“I had just taken a flight alone with my two young children. There I was - waiting for my luggage with my antsy four-year-old daughter and an impatient one-year-old son - trying to herd in the kids with one hand and find our bags with the other. It was then that I realized that there needed to be an easier way to identify luggage. Luggage tags are useful, but can be hard to spot because they attach to the top of a bag, which isn’t always visible right away. I needed something - preferably cuter than duct tape - that made my bag immediately obvious to me and everyone else around me.”

When she returned home and searched for the perfect luggage identifier, she found nothing beyond the colorful luggage tags and ribbons she had already found to be less than "identifying". That's when the idea for UBrand was born.

UBrand tags are made from a 3-D polymer based construction that are water, UV, heat and cold resistant which attaches using a semi-permanent adhesive. What does that all mean? Basically, these tags can handle the extremes of severe travel conditions, stick well to luggage while still being removable (without leaving a nasty sticker "goo") and are simple to use (no sewing!).

And with the cute designs and newly added monogram letters, they aren't just for travelers anymore. UBrand tags can also be used on jackets, backpacks, lunchboxes, diaperbags, and sporting equipment! In fact, Michelle's kids (now 4 and 7) and all their school mates go crazy for them and love collecting the UBrand tags making Michelle one of the coolest moms on the block.

Now's your chance to be a cool mom too. Michelle is offering 2 free Ubrand tags to each of this week's FIVE freebie winners. Which tag will you choose and what will you decide to "identify"? Make your comment now to be
