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."

"These just arrived today and I'm very pleased with the turnout! The detail is outstanding and colors are great. Now to come up with my next..
"We have only been making pathtags for about a year and have nothing but good to say about the whole process. These are genuine pieces of art and capture exactly what we are about. The design partners and the whole pathtag team deserve kudos for the easy process from inception to finished goods. These little gems have made a ton of freinds for us as well. Great job everyone!
"Got my first Pathtag. It is a signature tag of my avatar on my profile. I think it turned out awesome. It really looks much better than I had dreamed. Thanks...couldn't have had a better design. Exceeds all my expectations!
"Who would ever have thought last year when I had my first tag produced that I would be this addicted to pathtags? I have taken on an extra job to pay for my addiction, and now I will own more than 25 tags by the end of 2009. Every time I think I may need help, I realize how much joy those tags bring to me and everyone else. Thank you for an amazing product!
Stamp's Retired Tags
"Well, after receiving our first tags I was all set and ready with a new design, so off to photoshop I went and came up with a tag for my choppers. I wanted a different border on it, something that related to motorcycles, and so my chain border was born. It turned out fantastic, thanks again Pathtags. I have many more designs ready to submit, but have to wait a bit.
"We just received our first pathtag, I must say we are very happy indeed. The detail is amazing. Our design came about from a road way sign, discovered while away on the October long weekend event (We didn't start the fire) and a big thank you goes out to The Parrots for help with the design.
"This is my second Pathtag made and the first I designed. It's incredible how much detail is put into these tags. When you think about all the work that goes into making these tags it's amazing how little you pay for them!
"Love my first PathTag!! Came out wonderfully. It is amazing just ow small that print can cone out on these things. Shared a couple of my tags with cachers from the UK and Germany. They were not even sure what they were. Hopefully we have spurred some interest and PathTags will be springing up in caches over there.
Creation to delivery was pretty quick. Great communication too. I always knew what was going on with my tag. I still have plenty to share. Drop a note and ask to trade!!
"I just received my first set of 200 pathtags and they're beautiful. I have already ordered a refill for another 200 with a different background, and I submitted a third order with a totally new design. Talk about addictive, and I haven't even given the first pathtag away or even traded one yet. The tags look great, the service has been first class, and the customer support is awesome. You've got me hooked!
"I received an invitation to join the "Bird Club" I chose the Eastern Wild Turkey as my bird of choice because of my passion of hunting them. This tag looks absolutely great. The blueprint didn't do the tag itself any justice. The first day alone I traded 13 of these to other bird club members. Thanks for producing such high quality tags for us.
