What unique "signature" items are out there?


Recommended Posts

Signature item collecting is a big thing here in Michigan. We wanted a "coin" but found the cost to be more than we wanted to do right now. We thought about a custom wooden nickle or wooden dollar...... do a search for wooden nickle and youd be amazed at what you can do. Then we stopped at a shop that does trophies and plaques.... the also do custom medals.... we are getting one made up with our own design and some engraving. They look wonderful and won't be as expensive as a coin, but will look almost as good. There is also a discussion and some ideas on a thread about signature items at www.mi-geocaching.org going on right now.

 

Earth First!!! We'll cache the other planets later!!

I've recently started leaving bits of hand made, European-style 4-in-1 chainmail as a signature item. Doesn't cost a lot, but it takes some time and effort to make the links and assemble them into chainmail.

Check out the geocoins and other geo-creations sections of our home page for some ideas. One of the latest additions to the list is Little Boy Geo.

The Geoferret Clan has used a cloisonne lapel pin in the shape of a ferret as our signature item since the very first cache we found.

This one is like the pins we place in caches we hide for the first 3 finders to take if they wish. The ones we leave in caches we find have all white enamel rather than the browns, black, or gray colors. They've become a bit of a "collector's item" among local cachers, which has been very fun for us!

Someone above mentioned wooden nickels. I bought a pack of blank wooden nickels, a rubber stamp that looks like a compass rose, and a custom-ordered stamp with the name of our team. Stamped the compass rose on one side of a wooden nickel, and our custom stamp on the other. Makes a neat personalized item. If the finder doesn't want our info to show in his/her display, they can turn it so the compass rose shows. PS--ordered the custom rubber stamp from cistamps.com
