FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

We also frequently get asked all sorts of odd things on long runs (involving toenails, GU and relationships), but we’ll leave those out.

Deep breaths, Larry. Ordering should be the easy part of your race preparations. If we could run them to you, we would.
If you’re out of town, choose Priority Mail to get it there in 2-3 days (though since the USPS does not guarantee delivery on Priority Mail, we can’t either). If you need it sooner or are worried about cutting it short, choose Express Mail to get it there overnight.
We do custom make the bibs so depending on how many orders we have, we can take 2-3 days. If you are sweating (but not from running), let us know your rush & when your race is by using the comment section when you order or the form at the right. We’ll work with you to get it to you on time or let you know if it’s just not possible. (In that case, we have emailed PDFs of our pace bands).

Because we think pace bands are better.
Reason 1 – It may be cold for your race and tattoos don’t show up through long sleeves.
Reason 2 – We like to carry goal A, B and C bands and change in the middle of the race if we must – tattoos are kind of permanent.
Reason 3 – If things go south, you can’t rip off your tattoo, crumple it in disgust, curse it and throw it in the gutter. Instead, you must stare down your failure, inked to your arm for the rest of the race, and likely all day and all night.
Reason 4 – Tattoos are a real pain to print to order.

Sure. We can design a bib and host an easy to use download page that is designed to make printing a snap. We can also offer your virtual runners an affordable purchase option for waterproof printed versions. Contact us for details.

Wouldn’t that be the life. No, we have to rely on elevation charts. But for the right price, we will offer personal pacing services, as long as the race is in a nice place, with good weather and you are nice company.

Our bibs and pace bands are printed in full color on tearproof, waterproof paper. It’s so waterproof that you can study your pace bands in the shower & they will hold up. Promise.
Our Cheering Signs are printed directly on plastic corrugated board and are weatherproof.

We will do our best to give your order a special touch. Just ask nicely. If you saw something in our gallery that looks close, tell us which one.

Contact us using the form at the right. Let us know the details (approximate number needed & date of event). We will respond back to you as soon as we get in from our run!
