Our Story

LuggageTag in the Cloud is a service offered by Aptika, a company with a 20-year history. We have been in the ID card business all that time and still ship to 89 countries. We sell all the equipment to manufacture ID cards and we are the developer of IDpack, a software solution for designing and printing ID cards.

Hi, my name is Martin, I'm a 46-year-old Canadian and I'm the person behind Luggage Tag in the Cloud.

I travel a lot for my job but also for pleasure, and there are two things that have been disturbing me for a long time:

  • Having to fill in a cheap paper airline luggage tag each time, and do it quickly on the corner of the desk. With a family of four and lots of luggage, that's too many tags to fill out.
  • Having to disclose my personal information on my luggage. Among other things, it's a good way to say hello, my house is empty because I'm not there.

That's how I started thinking about Luggage Tag in the Cloud at the beginning of 2018. Having 20 years of experience in the ID card business, we know how to develop software, we often advise tradeshow security, we have customers in airports, the military, government and police. We have worked with QR codes since they began and Aptika has been offering a free QR Code generator for years, so using them was logical.

When all this experience is mixed together, you get LuggageTag in the Cloud for trouble-free travel, 24/7, anywhere in the world.

A robust PVC tag printed at 600dpi, 85% thicker than a regular credit card to withstand travel turmoil and rugged handling. All your personal information protected in the Cloud, encrypted with 2048-bit SSL and available worldwide. A unique code and a simple QR code so you can be contacted easily if your luggage is lost. An SMS and email messaging system to automate the process in real time (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), and that's it. That's how you get Luggage Tag in the Cloud.

Please don't hesitate to contact us, we love hearing from you. Suggestions for the site? Yes, go ahead! LuggageTag in the Cloud is evolving every day to offer you the best travel experience.

We hope you will enjoy our LuggageTag in the Cloud as much as we do; all my family and friends are using it too. Special thanks to everyone who helped and contributed to making this project a reality!

Best Regards,

Martin Bourdages
