Decals for safety applications

Lets acknowledge a fact, adventures are dangerous, some more than others. Despite the dangers, there are some of us in this world, that will never be contented watching the Discovery or the National Geographic channel. We live life for the adventures.

Nowadays, the use of technology changed the meaning of “dangers” into “manageable risks”. In this century, is there anyone who goes on a adventure without a cell phone, sat phone or GPS? Thats just the basic modern day gadgets. In addition to the list, there is a whole bunch of sporting equipment for each specific safety reason that you can think of.

However, lets not forget the true essential basics for survival, food, water, flashlight(with batteries) and a good Leatherman tool. Sure, there are much more that I would want in my emergency kit, including the air-con 🙂 … but.. you know..

Anyway, that brings me to my point. In an emergency, can you locate your essential safety equipment and getaway? You may only have time to grab something and run. You definately want to be sure you grabbed the really important stuff.

There are some simple things that would really help in these emergency situations, especially if it happens to be dark all around. For example, you could mark your gadgets and emergency kit bag with reflective stickers such that they catch your eyes as you do a quick scan of your surrounding. By putting on stickers as shown, you increase the chances that you would see and grab these items as you evacuate.

Another great application of reflective stickers is in preventing panic situations from happening. Say, in a night kayaking expedition, your paddle drifted away while u were rumaging for food or water in your kayak. It would be so much easier to locate your drifting away equipment if it was marked with reflective stickers. Maybe its a paddle, or it could be your emergency dry bag with your travel documents or water bottle.

What have you got to lose marking your gear anyway? Nowadays, even our running shoes and Nike hats have printed reflective strips on the fabric. Thats for preventing accidents by making you more visible to the drivers.

Finally, introducing my new product offering, Reflective decals in standard shapes and sizes. This is the current offering. I hope to add to these basic shapes. Check out my sales website for new products, www.coolvinyldecals.wordpress.com .
