Stamps Before Camps

Posted on

Hey, Camp Kids!

Leaving your mark in one fell stamp is always a satisfying feeling. A handy little piece of technology, people have been using stamps for a very long time. Stamping is still widely used today to designate documents or show ownership. Our customers at Everything Summer Camp love the ease of stamping their kid’s camp clothing with our convenient Clothing Stamp! But as you mark your camp clothes, have you ever pondered how this little handheld wonder came to be?

Used to press an inscription or a picture into clay throughout ancient times, the first stamps date back to roughly 4000BC and they were made of stone or metal. These devices were simple handles with the inscription piece fit on the base—typically made of brass. The bottom was dipped in ink and used to transfer the inscription to any paper. Back in the day, mailed envelopes were enclosed with a brass stamp dipped in wax to seal the document.

These stamps were nothing like the folding tuck-away Clothing Stamp contraptions that we offer at our shop. They stayed in this old-fashioned manner and it took all the way to the mid-1800’s when something interesting happened.

It’s not settled exactly when it was that the first rubber stamp was invented. Some say it was in 1844 when Charles Goodyear first witnessed the process of vulcanization when he accidentally dropped some rubber and sulphur on the stove. Others say it took until 1866 when James Woodruff applied the manufacturing technique of rubber molds for dentistry to the printing stamp.

They've come a long way over time! The rubber on the stamp that we offer comes as a liquid gel to begin with. It then gets 'baked' with a negative that has your name printed on it. The gel that got baked had your name on top and the rest was unexposed so it remained liquid gel. We wash away the unbaked gel and there you have your Clothing Stamp rubber print!

Lovely, Lovely Laundry Bags

Posted on

Hey, Camp Preppers!

Not all camps require that campers bring their own laundry bags, but some do—and, whether the camp requires it or not, it’s always a handy item that will help ensure that your kid brings all their camp clothes back home after camp is over! And if you’re kid’s camp stay is any longer than one week, then a Laundry Bag will be much appreciated by the laundry service at camp. 

Of course, you can find a bunch of cool laundry bags at Everything Summer Camp; we carry a variety of fabrics, styles, and brand names like Mint and Buckhead Betties.

The brand name I’m highlighting today isn’t necessarily known for their Laundry Bags, but perhaps you’ve heard of them, they’re called Everything Summer Camp. It’s one of our very own Laundry Bags: The Everything Summer Camp Premium Laundry Bag!

Available in eight colors as well as three patterns—Blue Camo, Green Camo, and Tie-Dye, complete the look by choosing how your Laundry Bag strap contrasts with the color or pattern of the bag! That’s right! You can pick the color of the strap as well from multiple options. This gives you more than 50 color combinations to test out and decide which you like best.

This is not some cheap lightweight laundry bag! The bag is made to last through multiple years at camp. Cinch your bag shut with its drawstring to keep your dirty laundry out of sight and out of mind. This bag also features a large shoulder strap for comfortable carrying.

Manage your camp clothing with a fashionable means of containing them and design your own Premium Laundry Bag by clicking here on the Everything Summer Camp online store. You’ll love the look as much as the convenience at summer camp. As always, thanks for reading, Camp Folks!

Happy Hydrations

Posted on

Hey, Nalgene Lovers!

In this day and age, it’s pretty common for everybody to have their own water bottle, but that wasn’t always the case. And folks seeking the rugged, camping lifestyle didn’t know much better than to burn aluminum cans and bury their glass bottles in the wilderness and other recreational areas. But by the 1970’s, conservationists had begun to spread the word that such means of disposal were not cool with the environment. Campers and thrill seekers needed a solution.

The Nalge brand (named after the creator’s wife’s initials NLG) was started way back in 1949. They produced plastics that were originally intended for use in the laboratory. They constructed containers like bottles, jars, test tubes, graduated cylinders, and Petri dishes. These products were lighter than glass and sure not shatter if dropped so they were far superior to glass.

Scientists of the company who also had an interest in the outdoors slowly realized what a convenience these products would be for their outdoor use. That or it was the Nalge Company president who discovered his son’s Boy Scout troop was using Nalge laboratory containers for camping (though that may just be company lore).

However it came to be, these plastic laboratory equipment had found another purpose. For some time, hikers and alike who were in the know about Nalgene would contact suppliers of lab equipment or perhaps found access to these products in workplaces of their own.

But by the 1970’s, Nalgene had repackaged their plastic products and marketed their items to the wilderness-loving subculture that was delighted to get their answer to their camping disposal conundrum. Of course, it only makes sense that you can find the classic 32 oz Nalgene Wide Mouth Water Bottle available right here on the Everything Summer Camp online shop. Stay hydrated and be nice to the Great Outdoors! And, as always, thanks for reading, Camp Fans!
