Trackable number for vehicle
« on: August 20, 2013, 06:56:31 »
Soooo how does one go about tagging a car or canoe or whatever with a trackable number? Buy a tag and use its number? Or is there a way to simple register it?

Thanks, FB

You can buy car travel bugs stickers, as well as magnetic ones from many geocaching stores such as Cachers Toy Box, Landsharkz, and Cache At Night

I bought mine from a place in California because they offered multiple sizes and offered the TB tag cheaper than any other place I have seen.
They also will make up stickers if you have your own TB number.

Yeah, basically how it works is you buy a Travel Bug tag to get the tracking number, then that number can get printed on anything you want -- a T-shirt, a magnet, or vinyl stick-on numbers to go on your vehicle. Most of the time when you order a travel bug car tag you are paying for both the TB tag itself and the vinyl stickers, but as BlackRose67 said, there are places who will just cut you the sticker if you provide the numbers.

My wife gave me a new routed wooden sign for our cottage last Xmas - and found someone who would carve a TB and its number into it.

I am surprised I haven`t run into anyone yet with a TB tatooed onto their arm!

I met someone at the last GAG dinner that has a TB tattoo.

TyggerBob has one.

I discovered quite a few TB tattoos at Spring Fling this year.

I'm trying to find someone in Canada that does this, as I need to get my vehicle TB reprinted to put on the new wheels.

Here you go:

They are located near Vancouver BC. I've ordered from them before (in fact, I think my own TB decal might have come from them).

Thanks for the link.

Looking at the way it's worded, options, pricing, etc. I think they outsource to the same company in the US that I bought mine from originally.

Landsharkz does reprints.  Not sure how I missed that when I was looking at the Vehicle TB page.
