New mini Cloakroom Tags now in stock

mini plastic cloakroom tag

We’ve just launched a new range of pre-printed Cloakies®, hurrah!

Our popular mini plastic Cloakroom Tags now include a blue raffle ticket design and a more traditional cardboard ticket design.

Both are available off-the-shelf as a pack of 100 pairs, numbered from 001 to 100, for just £45 + VAT.

We know that you wanted some more options for pre-printed Cloakroom Tags, so we’re more than happy to oblige. We’ll also be adding some new full-size Cloakroom Tags in the following weeks.

Made from durable, wipeable plastic, they can be reused time and time again – making them perfect for cloakrooms everywhere, plus events and offices.

The benefits of plastic cloakroom tags versus paper or raffle tickets

If you haven’t ditched the paper yet, here are a few reasons you should:

  • They look a lot more professional than raffle tickets.
    It goes without saying really that a quality plastic tag says a lot more about your company than a ticket you’d normally get in the school tombola.
  • They’re harder to lose.
    Plastic Cloakroom tags are unlikely to be thrown away or lost in the way a scrap of paper is. Good news if you run a club and want to avoid a queue of disgruntled people at the end of the night that have mislaid the ticket needed to get their coat back.
  • You can reuse them time and time again…
    …and they stay looking good over time. If you’re an Events Company for example, it means you can use them for multiple events.
  • They’re not just for coats.
    Our Cloakies® are flexible little things. Use them with our flexible plastic luggage loops and they’re ideal for tagging bags and luggage. Some accommodation providers use them for labelling sets of keys (one to the customer, the duplicate stays in the office).

Our Cloakies® are half the size of a standard credit card (54mm x 43mm).

We can also print branded Cloakies® to your own design requirements.

 

2016: A review in Cloakroom Tags

Cloakroom Tags Restaurants Rocksalt

As we look back on a year of some cracking Cloakroom Tag orders, we wonder what’s in store for 2017.

Here are just a few of our favourites.

We’d happily have any one of these looking after our coats. Must organise a road trip for later in the year…

JanuaryPontio, Bangor Pontio Cloakroom tag

Pontio, Bangor University’s Arts and Innovation Centre, opened its doors at the tail end of 2015. We proudly printed the Cloakroom Tickets for all the lovely people who’ve visited since.

FebruaryRocksalt, KentRocksalt cloakroom tag

This is by far one of our favourite Cloakroom Tags, ever. Beautiful branding, quirky messaging – exactly how it should be. We hear tell that the food is knock out, too.

Doesn’t need much by way of introduction. Suffice to say, we were pleased as punch to send these beauties down to London.

Simple, yet brilliantly effective. The bold colours make a collection of Cloakroom Tags that really stand out.

MayRoux at the Landau, London

It was a run of Cloakies® for Roux at the Landau, the gourmet French restaurant based in the Langham Hotel. This is one order we really wish we could have delivered in person.

JuneFairway Village in Wimbledon Wimbledon Cloakroom Tag

More Cloakies® – this time for Sports World and their hospitality offer at the Fairway Village, during the Championships at Wimbledon. Very jealous of the people who got their hands on one of these. And the strawberries and cream.

JulyThe Langham, London Langham Cloakroom tag Cloakie

Cloakies® again (can you spot a theme)? We’ve worked with the Langham for a number of years and just love their iconic pink, which is to be found across their wallpaper, teddy bears, crockery … and now their mini Cloakroom Tags.

Sky Garden Restaurant coat tagAugustSky Garden, London

Delighted to have printed more Cloakroom Tags for the spectacular Sky Garden with its breathtaking views across London. The only question is, which restaurant to choose?

 

SeptemberOxo Tower, LondonOxo Tower Cloakroom Tags

Why have one Cloakroom Tag when you could have four? It’s the first time we’ve ever printed a separate tag for coats, bags, mobiles and umbrellas – and since then, we can’t help wondering why everyone else doesn’t do it. Genius.

Dabaar restaurat cloakroom tagOctoberDarbaar, London

Next time you’re in London, we highly recommend you hang up your coat and get hold of one of these. Great food. Great elephant.

 

John Soane museum cloakroom tagNovemberSir John Soane’s Museum

If you’re on the road trip, you’re probably full up by now and in need of some culture. So go and pick up one of our full size tags or mini Cloakies® and enjoy all that the Sir John Soane’s museum has to offer. We think they look great together.

10 reasons you should swap to plastic cloakroom tags

 

Trevor Sorbie cloakroom tag
What does your cloakroom currently say about you?

If you’re still using paper cloakroom tickets, or (sharp intake of breath) raffle tickets in your cloakroom, here are some very good reasons why you should consider upgrading to plastic cloakroom tags.

1. They’re much more professional.

When is a raffle ticket ever a fair swap for a designer coat? Providing plastic cloakroom tags says that you care about the belongings you’re being entrusted with, and it speaks volumes about your business too.

2. You can brand them – on both sides.

As well as pre-printed options, you can personalise the plastic cloakroom tags to your own brand in full colour, front & back. Which means you could also include a promotion, or even advertise a sister establishment. Or just have a bit of fun with them.

3. They’re rarely lost (and easy to find).

Being plastic and just like a credit card, cloakroom tags are generally kept safe in a wallet or purse. They’re easy to locate and much less likely to be thrown away by accident, thus avoiding the disgruntled queue of people who are forced to wait until the end of the night to get their stuff back.

4. They’re wipeable and reusable.

You can drop plastic cloakroom tags in your Margarita as many times as you like and they’ll still come up smelling of, er, lime. The point is, you can use them over and over again, unlike paper. Even if you laminate your paper tags, they soon become grubby.

5. They’re much more secure, and difficult to copy.

If you buy ‘off the shelf’ paper tickets, then so could someone else and you’d have no way of knowing which is genuine. Printing a unique number on every numbered pair gives you further security. All our pre-printed Cloakies have unique numbers.

6. They support your ‘use less paper’ policy.

Because the tags are made from durable plastic, they can be reused time and time again, unlike paper tickets which are a one hit wonder.

7. They’re unlikely to be accidentally torn off or ‘lost’ in the cloakroom.

In a busy cloakroom or hotel where bags are constantly being moved around pre check-in or post check-out, it’s not unusual for paper tickets to be torn off.

Plastic cloakroom tags can’t be physically torn off coat hangers. And if they’re secured on to bags with bag loops, they withstand wear and tear and jostling about.

8. You can put a disclaimer on them (in the nicest possible way)

Whatever your Ts & Cs are for cloakroom use, print them on the reverse.

9. You can also use them for bags.

Our flexible bag tag loops make it easy to affix the cloakroom tags to luggage or shopping bags.

10. They just look nicer.

Which would you rather receive when you hand over your expensive jacket – a professionally branded plastic card, or something you get at the school Tombola?

Cloakies – the mini, quirky cloakroom tags

Mini branded plastic cloakroom tag
Go mini – and give your customers a branded experience throughout

The Card Network has just added full colour, mini cloakroom tags to their list of printed plastic cards –  Cloakies.

The Cloakie has been designed for restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions who want their own colour branded cloakroom tags but might have previously been put off the price. The Cloakie is half the size of a regular cloakroom tag or credit card but is the same height, so it’s still easily visible in a wallet or purse. And because it’s smaller in size, it’s also smaller in price.

Neal Smith, MD of The Card Network explains how it came about as an idea:

We have many restaurants and hotels who order plain plastic cloakroom tags because they want to move away from using tatty raffle tickets, but can’t quite stretch to their own branded version.

he Cloakie aims to bridge the gap. It’s smaller so it’s more cost effective, but it’s still big on impact. Initial feedback shows that our customers love them because they’re a bit different – they’re quirky.”

Stave off negative customer reviews

A quick look on Trip Advisor shows how damaging a poor cloakroom experience can be. Giving a cloakroom tag for every bag or coat checked-in significantly reduces the likelihood of belongings being lost or stolen. And a branded cloakroom tag will always look more professional than a generic one.

Cloakies are full colour on both sides, and are custom printed to a specified design. They are supplied in numbered pairs, with one card being given to the customer, the other slotting easily over a coat hanger. Made out of quality plastic, they are reusable and durable.

Prices for Cloakies start from £128.00 for 200 and include free design and artwork.

It’s not just restaurants and hotels that are seeing the benefits of custom printed cloakroom tags. The Card Network’s customers include hairdressers, museums, galleries, nightclubs, bars and private members clubs.
