Creative Etching

One of the stores our shopping script buys packages from is Creative Etching run by Jerry Ringling out of southern Maryland (you can see more of Jerry’s work on Deviant Art at He uses digital images and analog techniques to work the metal. Our script buys shoelace tags and keychains from him with emoticons and nifty sayings like ‘Do you know where your wand is?’ and ‘Cthulhu for President’.

Each tag is individually made by Jerry using an acid-fee electrolytic etching technique. The tags work well with boots and shoes, both adult and kids’ sizes.
