These cups are nifty

You know how you go to a party and they've got a marker right next to the cups so you can label them? Well, at our party Tuesday, someone brought the coolest little cups. They're called etch-it cups. They've got a black space that can be "etched" with your name, just using a fingernail. (It's a lot like a scratch-off lottery ticket but the black part is nice and thin--not a lot of black dust under your nails.) So neat!

Over and over, guests raved over them. What a great invention! (I think we had 100% drink-labeling compliance!)

Love 'em! Do you know where they got them? We have 20-something people at our family gatherings. I'd love to have some of them. ;)

Awesome idea!

I like it! Except I would've ruined your "100% compliance" because I'm pretty sure I would've written something other than my name on the cup. Like "mine". Or "bourbon". Or "Sue".

What a wonderful idea -- one of those that you think "why didn't I think of that!" :)

What a saver these cups must have been. Where did they come from?

Do you know where they got them? Those are so cool. Hmmm.. looks like etch-it.com is on the bottom of the etching part. My family is HUGE (about 50 immediate at family functions) and we're always losing the marker. Usually cuz a kid took off with it to draw on butcher paper. :)

I love them! We recently tried the marker idea, only to have a kid accidentally write on our wall. :-(
