How do I know what size of bracelet to order?
  
Take a measuring tape and measure your wrist at its smallest point. Take a true wrist measurement-not too tight or too loose. Then, add 1 inch to that measurement. Remember, the tag does not bend. So, you will need to add an inch to your wrist measurement. (This only applies to all bracelets unless you have a bracelet buddy to assist you to put it on and then it could be a little tighter at 1/2" large than your wrist - HOWEVER WE RECOMMEND 1" LARGER). Be sure to measure carefully as there is a $6 return shipping and handling fee to exchange the bracelet for a different size.


What Should I Have Engraved?

-Be sure to indicate if you are on a medication or allergic to the medication.
-Unless you are listing several numbers for the same person you do not need to indicate that it is a cell or work number.
-The shorter the line, the larger the font will be on the tag.
-The tag will be easier to read if the lines are evenly spaced.
-When listing allergies say “peanut allergy” instead of “allergy to peanuts” because it takes up less space.
