Radmarkers.com is a South Florida family based company that manufactures custom lead X-Ray markers for radiographs. Their radiographic markers are made of radiolucent molds in multiple shapes and colors. The wide variety of unique markers includes a breast cancer awareness marker and an autism awareness marker.
Some of the products from Radmarkers include unique markers such as flip flops, skull, cat, butterfly, and paw shapes. A variety of colors add a bit of flair to the standard square pattern.
Radmarkers offer a product called Gecko strips or radgrips. These are reusable X- Ray marker grips that leave no sticky residue. The product is appears to be similar to the silicon sticky stretchy toys that kids play with. Even though they are washable with hot water, I personally would not want to worry about spreading infection with a reusable sticker.
