Luggage Transfers

Hi Guys

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, wasn't sure where to post.

Me and my DF are buying new suitcases for our honeymoon and have settled on these:-

They are great space and size wise but they are just too plain. The store doesn't have them in any other colours which is a bummer. So I was wondering, if anyone over here knew the best way to decorate these so that they stand out when collecting them.

I was thinking iron on transfers, but not sure if that would work on these as they're polyester.

What do you guys think?

I used some stencils and stencil paint on our luggage. its held up pretty good over the years. cant say the same thing about the suitcase itself.

Im sure you could use iron ons on a piece of fabric, cut it down and use a good fabric glue to glue them on.

Have fun!!

My mom used fabric paint to paint a fencer on my brothers bag. He did fencing and it worked out when he went to japan, he was able to spot them a mile away

Oh I'm glad you asked that and someone answered! I think i'm going to paint on my luggage with a stencil now! I can cricut out a mousehead and use the negative image for the stencil.

I have used E6000 to glue on iron-on patches on suitcase type material and it held up well. The item was a garment rack inside what was basically a suitcase, but it has not gone through airport handling.

I also did iron on some gemstone patterns and they went on well also, but I was very worried about messing up the fabric, so I stopped at one design.

Thanks for that We ended up buying a different suitcase which was slightly larger and is blue. We're thinking about buying the bright neon straps and some neon padlocks for decorative use.
