Thank you for visiting Tag-R-Up Designs by Justin Juliano! We are the only company to offer an exclusive Ocean City, New Jersey Beach Tag towel! The towel consists of every beach tag from 1976 up to the present! In addition to our famous beach towel, we offer many other products with our beach tag design on them! What started as an idea during the summer of 2011, came to be on October 10, 2011. The first product was created, and to date over 800 towels have been sold!
The official launch article is below!
Student Sells Beach Towels Showing History of O.C. Beach Tags Justin Juliano, a 17-year-old summer resident, is marketing his product on a new website.
Justin Juliano said he conceived the idea this summer (2011) after an Ocean City beach tag inspector asked him to show his tag.
Because beach tags have become such a part of the fabric of summer in Ocean City, Juliano decided to make a beach towel with beach tag designs as part of the fabric.
The 17-year-old Haverford High School student started a business, Tag-R-Up Designs, and is selling his beach-tag towels at www.tagrupdesigns.com.
Juliano researched the history of beach tags in Ocean City, and his towel includes a complete collection of designs from 2012 back to 1976, when the tags were first required in Ocean City. Seasonal tags cost $5 in 1976 ($3 if purchased before May 31). Today, the cost is $25 ($20 if purchased in the pre-season).
Juliano's family has a home on 28th Street in Ocean City, and he spends his summers working at Acme on 34th Street and selling papers outside Our Lady of Good Counsel at 40th Street.
He lives in Havertown, PA, and is a senior class officer at Haverford High School. He will be attending nearby Cabrini College in the Fall of 2012 as a secondary eduction-math major -- hopefully with a little cash in his pocket from a budding beach towel business.
Stay posted to our website for our new store location! It will be open by summer 2015 in downtown Ocean City, NJ!
