Devoted pet lovers around the world are no stranger to the struggle of setting out on their next adventure without their faithful companions at their side.

And while it can help to set a paw-fect portrait as a phone wallpaper to check in everytime the distance feels too much, it isn’t always enough – especially when you’re used to seeing their sweet little faces every single day.

Luckily, the people over at July have come up with a solution in ‘Petsonalisation’. It’s something sure to set tails wagging, offering pet parents the exciting opportunity to have their best friend’s face on their suitcase and travel accessories.

Forget limiting yourself to lettered monograms, all customers have to do is upload their desired pet pic, and then July will do the hard part for them – illustrating the image, and personalising the luggage, tags, bottles, kits, and notebooks on offer with the friendliest of faces.

“People love their pets, and often pets are the ones you leave behind when you’re off travelling. We wanted to create a way for all travellers to be able to take their pets with them, no matter the journey,” July’s Richard Li explained.

“Our personalisation offering has always been unique,” July’s Athan Didaskalou added. “We know that for something to be truly personal the offering needed to be diverse and inclusive. Multiple fonts, colours, emojis, and languages. In a world-first, I am excited to extend our personalisation service once more to include the most loveable beings in people’s lives: their pets.

“We’re a customer-centric business and our products are derived from what people want, with over 50% of orders already opting for personalisation. Your suitcase stands out even more on a luggage carousel and is less likely to be mistaken for someone else’s bag when it’s got your initials on it.

“A lot of people would love to be able to take their dog or cat on holiday with them, but with cost and customs, that’s just not an option. We like to think this is our way of enabling our customers to bring their pets on their travel adventures.”

Since launching in 2019 with their Carry On suitcase, July have progressed in leaps and bounds, now offering an entire suite of travel products – from luggage to backpacks, bottles, phone cases, notebooks, and various other travel accessories.

And now, the code ‘Petsonalisation’ can be applied for up to two pets per product on all of July’s luggage and accessories until April 25th – at $25 for accessories, and $65 for luggage.

While dates are limited for July’s pet offering, they’re no stranger to personalisation, and have been offering enthusiastic customers the chance to create truly unique items since 2019.

Their efforts are no small feat either, with shoppers able to “personalise up to five characters with 11 different font styles and 28 colours to choose from, even adding emojis”. And for those worried that they may not be limited in what they can write, July have an answer – they’re one of a limited number of companies worldwide, and the only one in Australia, to offer “personalised Chinese characters and additional Latin based languages such as French and Spanish for monogramming.”

There’s no stress when it comes to having it sent your way either – as anyone in Australia or New Zealand is aware, postage costs can be half the battle – as with orders over $100, July offer free shipping.

So, if you want to show the world your best pet friend, it’s time to hop on over to check out July’s range before April 25th, and get their face put front and centre!
