This wonderful event is the reason why the new Gal Gear Grocery Totes were not posted last week. Herkimer CCC went to the NJCAA World Series in Tyler Texas. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to see this talented team play for the national title. They finished 3rd in the nation. Congratulations Herkimer Generals!!
It's been a while, but I checked my bag on a recent trip to Texas. Since the computers at DFW were processing so slowly, the airline agent at check-in decided to hand write the destination on our tags. Since they were processed without the aid of the handheld scanner they did not make the transition to our connecting flight. I guess they arrived in SYR later that night. US Airways had them delivered to us at home.
When I travel, I always place a luggage tag inside my bag, just in case the tag on the exterior of the bag is removed. This trip I decided to attach two tags to the outside of my bag; a Gal Gear yellow tag and the Hartmann tag that came with the bag. Much to my surprise, the Hartmann tag was ripped from the bag. (see red circle in photo above) The Gal Gear tag was a little dirty, but still firmly attached. The dirt was easily cleaned with "Simple Green®" all-purpose cleaner. I don't have an affiliation with the company that makes Simple Green, I just know it works well on vinyl. Simple Green® worked very well on the luggage, too.
Gal Gear Designs behind the scene
I'm involved in many other design projects. Here's what is going on behind the scene.
