The FIXX ID, named in honor of Jim Fixx, was the first ID we ever created. Needless to say, many long hours went into the design of the FIXX ID. We wanted our first ID to not only be fun to wear, but also be very high quality. Different from any other form of ID in the market, the FIXX ID allows you to make a statement about yourself by incorporating one of our 231 images images on the front side to express your personal interest, passion or motto.
The back side can be laser engraved with your emergency contact information. This trusty old dog comes in High Polished Stainless Steel with a 27" stainless ball chain. The FixxID is available in both Original and Interactive versions. $25
How many front-side images are there?
Currently, we have 231 images. We are, however, always adding new ones. Click here to see them.
Do you have suggestions as to what I should engrave on the FIXX ID?
Sure do! Check out our suggested text. Click here.
Are they guaranteed?
Of course! All of our products come with a genuine satisfaction guarantee. In addition to this, the ID tag (the stainless steel part of the ID) has a lifetime guarantee. If you are tough enough to wear your Road ID out, then we will replace it at no charge. I challenge you to destroy them (through natural wear - gunshots and hand grenades don't count).
Always remember that wearing ID is important for everyone in your family that enjoys the great outdoors.
Will it bounce when I'm running?
Absolutely Not. Many people, especially runners, picture this thing bouncing all over the place. They can just see it slapping them in the face and then bouncing like a brick off their chest. But, it doesn't. I can't honestly explain why, but it just doesn't bounce. Many women runners just tuck the FIXX ID in their sports bra and forget about it.
Should I put the Medical Alert symbol on the front?
Not unless you really want to. Medical personnel (Doctors, Nurses, EMTs, etc.) are trained to look for ID. Whatever you have laser engraved on the front (be it the "medical alert" or the "two runners") they will find it. One of the coolest things about the FIXX ID is that you can put an image that defines you, what you like or affiliate with on the front side. Your medical condition is not who you are, it's something you have - put that info on the back.
Can I put more than one image on the front?
Sorry, but we currently can't do that. You see, each image is "digitized" to a specific size. Reducing an image, so as to laser engrave another one, just isn't that easy. To do that, we basically have to create an entirely new image, and it takes an artist at least an hour to create a new image.
What's up with the shape of the FIXX ID?
The shape (including the notch) is actually the same shape that was used for official military dog tags manufactured between 1941 and the early 1970's. We selected this shape for a number of reasons. First, the military dog tag is the most recognized form of identification in the world. Second, we look upon the dog tag with pride - as a symbol of those who served in the military and as a symbol of the freedoms we enjoy today in
