Fifteen years ago, Toni Bissell began N-Style ID, and changed the way we think about medical ID bracelets. Liberated from the drug store chain designs of most medical bracelets, Toni has spent the last fifteen years creating medical IDs as beautiful as they are informative. Toni’s vision of easing the struggle of wearing medical alert jewelry by developing stylish and fun alternatives is reaffirmed with every N-Style ID purchased.
When her daughter Camille, was diagnosed with diabetes, Toni found it difficult to change her family’s eating habits as well as learn how to administer and schedule insulin injections. But what was more problematical, was finding a stylish medical ID bracelet Camille would wear. Since medical ID tags should be worn continuously, designing jewelry for all occasions was necessary.

Does this bracelet look familiar? It debuted last Wednesday as our ID of the Week. The Universal Sport Medical ID Band with the Contempo ID was a creation of our own to meet an overwhelming number of requests for an interchangeable sport band. We have found many customers wanting to use separate bracelets to serve different functions while using the same ID. A chain medical ID bracelet for everyday use, a beaded medical bracelet for more formal events and a sport medical band for the gym or a hike. This Velcro locked, quick dry band is the first compatible, comfortable and convenient sport option for our Contempo ID. The Universal Sport Medical ID Band is also compatible with our Wave and Max Contempo ID tags. Go ahead, tell us what you think of our new addition.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, products ranging from running shoes to fruit snacks are all turning pink, and with good reason. BreastCancer.org states that every 1 in 8 women are at risk for developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime, which is up from every 1 in 22 women developing the disease in the 1940’s. But does buying a product with the pink ribbon really help save lives? The answer is, some do much more than others. Companies are allowed to print the pink ribbon on their products without even having to donate to find a cure. Businesses are very much aware of the fact that “the pink ribbon is arguably the most successful marketing symbol of our time,” says Karuna Jaggar, the executive director of Breast Cancer Action.
