... I start the annual retail tag manufacturing ritual/grind/chore/ -- @$%(^*%!!! lol. I've several thousand to go, (3000+) but gotta great start on it this past weekend with 650 tags made. Improvements to the tags for 2018 are laminating, shortening the tags a bit, printing on glossy photo paper, and finding an alternative to the twist tie at the base of the tag. Always work to do in the display beds and the field too.

Timothy ~ Prince is helping! Just think how frustrated you would feel with making the tags if he wasn't there to calm you down!

I agree

He is making sure the mice dont steal the tags your in the process of making. Just think of the ramifications,if the rats or mjice stole them.
