Back in July, feeling a bit patriotic and wanting to honor my Dad and nephew for their military service, I created an emergency ID out of military dog tags. When doing so the store made two; one with my name spelled correctly and one with it misspelled.
Could I re-purpose a ruined military ID?
Then Gayla, owner of Tri-Zone in Los Alamitos, saw it and asked if I could make more. If so, she’d sell them at her store. Heck yea!
Since then I’ve experimented with designing these stainless steel tags – playing with different colors and types of glue and fabric. Countless hours were spent @ BuildIt Workspace learning about laser printing, 3D printing, scanning and cutting.
Finally, the designs are ready.
They are called IRON Butterfly™
10% of sales will be donated to disable veterans @ CAF.
The tags are made from U.S. steel and manufactured in the U.S.
Stay tuned for more designs, and if you have a great re-purpose product, please share.
