Ok, so I created a tag, and created an account.. And I have a credit of 10 free one sided tags, and you pay for shipping. It's about $4 each for shipping.. Think I might order 1 and see how it looks.. I like the design I've got, just hope the TB tags show up OK behind my name...

*Edit* Look at the special sale tab.. $199 tags with free shipping! Go get 'em!*/Edit*

I ordered some when they were a buck and they turned out really nice. One comment though - the finished tag size is about 2" x 1.25" and they are beveled so the smaller writing along the bottom will probably not be readable.

Glad to see you got the .xcf image to work and... is that bling on your name? Smile

The bevel will make it difficult to read the fine print down at the bottom. I'm seeing LOTS of these at events!

I actually created this from the .png. If the coords don't quite come out , that's OK. I don't think there's too many that want to go to the center of Minneapolis. Very Happy (Maybe there's a BM nearby.. interesting to check..)

That "Bling" is TB Tags 'hiding'. Very Happy What was the average wait to see your tags? 2 weeks?

I like these dog tags and I saw some at the last event I was at. I just ordered 7. They have a deal for 1.99 each, double sided with free shipping. Thanks for sharing your templet and the links to the software, LucidOndine. It all worked out for me.

If these turn out, I might try the double sided tags.. Didn't really think about the double sided option...

My real question is, are you guys hanging these off your bags, or actually wearing them? Embarassed

So many of us ordered the tags all at once, there was a delay in shipping. I think I got mine in about 3 weeks.

Many of us wear them during events. I'm not sure if anyone uses them for bling on swag bags or not.

'Sticky' is just an indication that section of the forum is 'stuck' at the top, and won't move down the forum as other sections are commented on. As you can see, the icon is different. Kind of like a splash of goo, holding the topic in place.
