Never Lose Your Gear Again (Gear Labels)
They're back with new designs! Because you asked (and asked again), I'm offering gear stickers again. Stickers are pretty time-consuming to design, cut, ship, and send, so I'm hoping to spread out the orders in batches before the holiday rush.
A bulk order is the only way to make printing cost-effective, so I'll need groups of 12 to order before I send the designs to the printer.
Orders must be received by December 6th in order to have them to you by the holidays.
Because I'm printing these in bulk, it's impossible to split designs or contact info in a single order. However, many couples use last names and double phone numbers to share an order. Thanks for understanding!
Size: 2" tall by 1" wide. I put the name and contact information on either the bottom or top so that you can easily trim the stickers to put on very small items (such as carabiners). I use the mountain part for sealing envelopes and other decoration.
Quantity: 125. Enough to add to your climbing rack, Tupperware, art supplies, ski gear, water bottles, mountaineering equipment, packrafting accessories, and chargers.
Material: Durable, weatherproof, UV-resistant vinyl that lasts (pretty much) forever, resists scratching, and has bright, beautiful colors. Mine held up to a winter on the Pika Glacier (after which I had a snow picket returned), the dishwasher (all my Tupperware and lids) and whitewater trips (though my paddle is still MIA somewhere down Six Mile). I've seen people put them on shoes and cloth goods with varying success.
Write the information (name, email and phone number) you want to be on the sticker in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll send you a proof before the stickers go to print. YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL so I can send you the proof. If you use Paypal, it will delete the comments. Please email me the sticker information at email@example.com.
You must get your order in by November 28th. That's the only way I can get them designed, printed, cut, sorted and shipped out before Christmas.
The story: In May of 2018 I did a volunteer ranger patrol on Denali with the wonderful rangers. It was one of the best weeks of the year, and there was tons of gear. Climbing gear, skiing gear, cooking gear, personal gear, books, thermoses, and rescue equipment. Keeping track of all the different pieces was a huge effort, except for Katherine. She had handy name stickers on all of her items that said her name and phone number. She said they had more than paid for their worth because she had so much climbing gear mailed back to her from all around the country.
Since I love stickers, I took the idea and ran with it. I made colorful name tag stickers for the people who watch my dog, lend me their inReach, or do other similarly lovely things.
Stuff I would have otherwise lost:
Insulated coffee thermos
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
