Hmmm . . . what can I say? I agree with everyone else. Like Attroll said, I wouldn't rush into things. Do a few caches first and collect a few signature items to see what others are doing for their signature items . . . and to see if this is something you want to do long-term. As Laughing Terry said, most folks try to go with something that is unique and ties into their user name . . . and his rubber chickens definitely fit that bill. And as Robt said, you can get laminating done at Staples . . . although I happen to have a laminator in my office that I use for my tags that I attach to my signature item ladders.
Incidentally, welcome to the world of geocaching and in particular to geocachingmaine.org.
