Pet Tags for Roses
In the unsatisfying search for garden labels, I have been considering getting an engraver. Even on eBay they are expensive. More do-able is a machine that makes pet tags. Some of these tags could be used as labels, but I was thinking more along the lines of tags to attach to the rose itself, similiar to the ones you sometimes get with a rose, but the info could be anything you wanted (name of rose on one side, your name on the other, or where you bought it and when, etc, etc). This way when the garden label blows away get chewed up by the dog or run over by the lawn mower, you (and posterity) knows what it is. You could even have your choice of shape. I think the blanks are about .80 a piece, and if so, I'd ask for 1.50 plus shipping.
I'm willing to spring for the machine if I've got a market. Please let me know if you are interested.
