I brave the elements 2 or 3 times a week regularly and my tag already looks like $#*+ . Do you plan on changing the tag? What happens when these forever tag falls apart, order a replacement copy?

Never really thought about the wear and tear, I do order blanks where you can write the number in. I think ordering 2 of each might be overkill (and costly). Maybe put it in like one of those clear pouch things used for concert passes, etc. All of mine still look pretty good and I play quite a bit as well but it hangs more towards the top of the bag.

I have the last 2 on my bag and they still look ok. Any guess on when you'll have them in the store? I need to renew my subscription before the end of the year and figured I'll just do them both at the same time.

I haven't even placed the order yet so probably January some time. I haven't had time to update the travel tag page to the new, non-annual system yet.

Ok, so I might have over-exaggerated a tad. I was just thinking about wear over time. Here's a picture of the what my edges look like after a year of riding high on the bag. It's like that on every corner. Badge protectors are a good idea

With the Battle Tags it would work the same as it does now except you'd play for the higher tag #.

Any thoughts? Either way, I'm doing away with the annual thing so that there are more people to either swap with or play.
I was part of the league in Bakersfield and that's what we did: played for the lowest number, though, not highest. You wanted to have the #1 tag.

Why not order 300 with a green color scheme, when those sell out, start over with a red colors scheme, then blue, yellow, etc. This way you want to try for #1 and/or your favorite color.

maybe 200 or 500 is the right number. only sell the color you have on hand until they are sold out, so you could possibly sell the same color for multiple years in a row.

That's probably a little too complicated. I'll probably order a bunch and maybe change the background colors on re-orders for fun but keep the numbering scheme going up from where the previous tags left off.

Delamination of the existing tag style should be a reasonably big concern if you're talking about making these forever-tags. (I like the forever tag idea BTW.)

I suggest you take a look at the metal tag offerings from Paragon Disc Golf. They do good work over there.
