Wow-how many people have asked you where you bought it? I bet a lot! Can I ask where you got your name tags? That is the exact style I'm looking for. The problem I'm having is that I want maybe 20 not 200! Love the name!!

I make up my tags As I need theThanks !!. I have the logo saved on my sewing machine and sew them up on about ! inch wide grograin ribbon as I need them. Or i do them on wool felt pieces. I found the bicycle motif on my machine and the skid are my initials , hence the name skid marks!!!
