I have actually considered making an "Aloha, My Name Is Hamo" name tag for times just like this....

Well, I was recently working on another non-tiki project where I was designing some custom buttons, so I decided to actually produce that "Aloha, My Name Is" button at the same time:

I found some appropriate free fonts, and used GIMP to create the image and Speedy Buttons for produce the button, which measures 3.5" by 2.5". I don't know if I'll ever actually use it, but it turned out nicely.


I like it! As someone with long hair this would be great since stickers just end up stuck in my hair after about 10 minutes.


Very well done!
