Jeremy Posted July 2, 2003 Share Posted July 2, 2003 First off, the metal tags are great! Durable, imprinted and long-lasting. But they're also expensive to make and we're restricted as to what we can print on them. Before you read this, we will continue to make the metal tags for those who want them. Proposal: Change Travel Bugs to Plastic The new design will be made out of a durable plastic which I have been told will withstand the elements very well. We have the option to customize the card shape so it is easily recognized as a travel bug item. We'll continue to use the "serial" travel bug design and add some other design elements to it. They will be based on the key fob designs you get at PetCo and other places. Size is configurable. We propose to create 3 tags connected so you can snap them apart. The first tag is the one you attach to the item. The second tag is your "COPY" which will have both the tracking number, activation code, and activation instructions on it. The third will be an additional tag that you can attach with the travel bug with instructions on how to log it on the geocaching.com web site. (we may just use 2 bugs, but I like the instruction tag idea). We'll need to add a key ring or a chain to go with the bug so you can attach it. Any recommendations? Zip ties are also an option. If we go this route we can cut the cost of the bugs significantly, depending on how we customize them. Thoughts? Likes? Dislikes? Thanks!
