August 2016:  Get Your Glow On!

Glow is back!  This opportunity allows you to add one of 11 great glow colors to your design at no additional cost!  The use of glow relies heavily on your design parameters.  Wide open spaces (like a big moon) will work much better than small spots (like eyes or small lettering).  If we are unable to accommodate glow in your design you will be notified when your blueprint is posted.  Pick your glow color on the "Glow" tab during the ordering process.


Pacific Lamprey Challenge

When the US Fish and Wildlife Department wanted to create a challenge cache series to educate the public about the Pacific Lamprey, they wanted to give participants something to remember the experience by.  They were looking for a gift that would be meaningful to Geocachers, but which is available on a budget.  They selected Pathtags!

The only way to get their beautiful tag is by completeing the cache series, located just Southwest of Olympia, Washington.

Here are all six mystery cache sites:
 
The overall goals of this program are:
  • Educate the public about the Pacific Lamprey
  • Educate the public about the Chehalis River Basin and the partners working to conserve/restore it.
  • Connect People With Nature via geocaching

Walton Robotics FIRST Team 2974 Pathtag

FIRST is a nonprofit organization founded by famed inventor Dean Kamen to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers among young people. The vehicle for making this happen is a program of competitive robotics tournaments for children as young as Kindergarten through high school.

In 2013, Walton Robotics Team 2974 decided to do something special to leave a lasting impression on the people they "crossed paths with" at their competition.  They created a Pathtag to give to other attendees! 

Lisa Malice, one of the team's mentors, said "The pathtags were a big hit with the students because it was a unique give-away and because of the creative approach to spreading our message. Geocachers I met loved it, but the muggle families I talked with were really intrigued! We are starting to see log ins pop up on our tag map, including the ones I sent to Australia and Oregon to collectors who agreed to place them in geocaches."

"Hi there - Just received my pathtags and they are even more gorgeous than I imagined! Thanks so much!!"

"When I found my first pathtag I moved it to another geocache not knowing what I had found. After learning more about them, I found another a few months later and I kept it. Then another few months went by and I had the priviledge of meeting Jellyfish and trippy1976 at an event, within minutes I was hooked! Ed and Mike not only were able to answer my questions, they gave me a few tags to help fuel the desire to create, gift and trade my own. I've since created 2 tags with 2 more planned for the near future, with more to follow. Another pathtag addict is born, thanks for helping with the addiction! ~Lion "

"We just got our BEAUTIFUL Path Tags yesterday, thank-you so much. And I really want to thank Pathman for helping us with our first tags. "



"Just wanted to say that this pathtag turned out very well. Being our first pathtag, the details needed to be just right. After a few iterations of blueprinting and redesigning, the blueprint was accepted and then we waited for it to be produced. When we got them in the mail we were shocked on just how awesome they turned out. Way better than expected. The fine details were amazing. We love our first tag. Thanks for making a signature item that is both affordable and detailed. This was money well spent. "

"Got my pathtag today...simply amazing how detailed and beautiful this little piece of art is! Thank you so much for such a nice item! Can't recommend you guys enough. PS much faster service than I expect also"

"I got my tag about the time I was expecting it and was really impressed with how it looks. I can't wait to start trading. "

"I started geocaching only about 4 1/2 months ago, and went to my first event when I only had 2 finds under my belt. I met a lot of nice people there, one of whom had brought his collection of over 300 pathtags. Of course I was curious about these little pieces of art, and asked to take a look at his collection. Right then, I just knew that I had to have my own! Later the same evening, I was given a signature tag by the tag's owner, and that only confirmed my desire to get my own! I resisted the temptation to hastily design my pathtag, but within 2 months I had placed an order. The blueprint confirmation process was a bit problematic for me, but now that my tags are here, I am absolutely thrilled with them! I'm so proud of the way they turned out, and am enjoying face-to-face trading with geocaching friends, and a little bit of trading through the mail so far. I can tell already that I will have to come up another design or 2 (or 3, or 4...)!"
