Embroidered Scuba Mask Strap Covers Make Unique Wedding Gifts 0
I have highlighted custom embroidered scuba mask strap covers in our blog before but I thought this was really a fun example of a unique wedding gift for a couple who may be going to a dive resort or liveaboard dive boat for their honeymoon. In the past, we have made matching mask straps with some of these quotes:
- Just Married
- His & Hers
- Bride & Groom
- Wife & Husband
- Mr Right & Mrs Always Right
Aluminum 2-Sided Equipment Tags Are Here 0
Many of you have been asking us for a custom equipment ID tag that can be engraved on both sides. We have secured an american manufacturer of high quality anodized aluminum tags in two sizes, 2 inch diameter circles and 1.5 inch diameter circles. We are able to laser engrave on both sides of these tags or we can also print full color on both sides.
If you are trying to decide between our plastic equipment ID tags and these aluminum tags, here are a few things to consider:
- While they are quite strong, the aluminum tags are a bit more prone to surface scratching than our plastic ID/gear tags.
- Both can be used in a saltwater environment. The aluminum tags will develop surface pitting if you do not rinse them in fresh water after diving for the day. The plastic tags will take more abuse in this area as well.
- If you need information engraved on both sides of the tag, the aluminum tags may be a better choice since our ability to engrave on both sides of our plastic tags is very limited - red with white lettering only.
Introducing a New Full Color SCUBA BC Name Tag w/Emergency Medical Tab 0
When we first designed the full color SCUBA BC Name Tag, we had a desire to add an option that would feature an emergency contact tab - one containing important medical and "In case of emergency" (ICE) contact information. Now that option is available for you.
The SCUBA BC Name Tag features a plastic tab that can be engraved with up to 9 lines (20 characters each) of emergency medical and contact information. Our example includes:
- Diver name
- Date of birth
- Blood type
- Drug allergies
- "In Case of Emergency" Contact Name
- Contact relationship
- Contact phone numbers
Other ideas might include the Divers Alert Network - DAN emergency number, medical insurance info,
The tab slides down and fits snugly behind the name plate so data is not visible but is easily accessed by pulling up on the tab. The only visible line is "Emergency Info" that serves to visibly alert others to the location of the information.
Every SCUBA diver should have one of these on their BCD.
