    Its a good "Free with frame" thing for seniors that have neurological issues. That way, if they lose them, the name, address, and phone number is right on the frame for someone to call to make sure they get them back.

    I find most decent size businesses have more than one pair of glasses in their lost and found that probably belong to seniors. Not to mention, they're the ones who are hardest hit by the expense of new glasses, and are least likely to remember where they might have left them.

    One of the big problems is that some temples are very thin and there is no where to print or engrave. I have a Brother P-touch label maker that I've printed phone numbers for customers. They work well if the temple is wide enough.

    CME4SPECS I think label maker is ideal only for Eyeglasses cases (to stick them on the cases or bag). It is a good note they only works for wider Temples.

    Please to all if you have more ideas or info to Print Text on Temples or engraving post here.

    Thank you

    Don't mean to be a Negative Nancy, but it may void frame warranties from the manufacturer.

    It certainly does and is definitely verboten on any Z87 safety eyewear product.
