Re: Stickers/stamps for signing logs
No one seems to have commented on the first part of the question. But I guess comments on where people acquired their stamps and/or stickers provides an answer in itself
I personally don't use either. I have no objection to anyone using them, but I do wish that some people would take more care with how they place their stickers. I've seen many instances where the sticker is slapped on the outside of a book, or across other people's names. It's like the person is only interested in getting their mark on the paper in some way then getting out of there as quickly as possible.
I've also seen a few cases where the sticker is just whacked in the container, no time taken to bother opening the logbook. And one memorable occasion where there was an outer container for protection, with the log inside a puzzle box contained within, the sticker was on the outside of the puzzle box
. I checked with that one - there was no sticker in the log book itself, and the cacher had claimed a find
Before any sticker users get all defensive - please note that I said SOME. Not all. I've seen many stickers placed neatly in a log book. It's just the badly placed ones that stay in my mind.
I have contemplated making up a set of stickers for long road trips, but have never got around to it. I would never buy a stamp, because I know I would lose it. I lose enough pens as it is
