Recently I designed a logo that I featured in a luggage tag. I am a flight attendant, so the tag is visible almost daily, and many coworkers have expressed interest in buying one like it.
I`m sure this is "small potatoes" for most of you, but I was hoping for some advice. I assume my design should be copyrighted, so I`ll need to figure out how to do that.
I can insert my logo into any luggage tag, but I just love the tag that I have. Even though the tag is a simple design (round, leather stitched, but instead of one vinyl window, there`s a window on both sides) I can`t find anything like it anywhere, and I have looked everywhere; stores, Web sites, manufacturers, wholesalers...hours spent doing this. I`m just going to have to have them made. How do I find a manufacturer for a quantity as small as I need?
I plan to start small--just with a few bag tags, then maybe have the logo printed on tote bags, lunch sacks, aprons, ID holders, and other items that flight attendants use at work. It`s a small market that I`m targeting, but I know flight attendants--they will buy it! Wannabe flight attendants and girls who like to travel will too.
So, I thank you for any advice and if you could recommend any books I should read on the subject, that would be great.
