I happened to find a pretty cool deal for custom made "dog tags" and I decided I'd pass the find along.

For a very limited time, you can make one of these for $1. This is what I ended up creating, for use at events:

I don't know how these'll turn out, but I'm sure the limited time offer of $1 won't be around for long!

You simply upload your own image, they stamp and seal 'em on.

ArtsCow.com offers a Personalized Dog Tag for humans for $1 when you use coupon code COWTAG99.

Enjoy!

Hey Lucid that is pretty cool. Are you willing to toss out a template like the one that you have so we could add our own name to it for the non creative people... like me? I like the background and I have my own name design... I just know that I am not creative like that.

Sure thing-- I can post the template tomorrow. I don't have access to it right now, otherwise I'd post it. Looks like the "deal" is good until the 15th of this month.

Good deal. Then I can order it before I leave for the southwest.

Ok, here are the templates:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/11565/geocaching/forums/DogTag.xcf

I recommend using GIMP for a free, fast, and flexible image editting tool (http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html). Please note that the image must be rotated 90 degrees CCW. It might take a few tries to get it the way you want, but bear with it Smile

Looks like I missed the $1.00 per tag sale. They look like that are 8.99 now or am I looking at the wrong thing.

Enter the code COWTAG99 at checkout. It should work through today.

Ok, three things here, and I will certainly get lamblasted big time for two of the three..

Firstly, and least controversial, I put my order in:



Secondly, I think that the proper orientation of the image should be the green Minnesota at the top, indicating the Lucid and MNBrad did there's upside down. Just my opinion.

Lastly, and deserving of being flogged, for all these years, I thought Lucid's caching name was LucidONLINE. After looking up his official geocaching.com record today I see it is LucidONDINE, with a "D". I am certain that it was my subconscience telling me that Online is more of a commonly used word than Ondine. But after consulting the Hacks With An Agenda, it makes perfect sense.

Note, that I put the home coordinates of my home town underneath my name. I would have put my actual home coordinates, but I don't want to be hunted down.
