Where can I purchase narrow tape with custom printing on it?

I've got a lot of stuff. People like to borrow my stuff. And they sometimes forget whose stuff it is and I never get it back! I had an idea to custom print my name, email, and phone number on narrow tape (perhaps vinyl based, similar to electrician's tape). Then, I can affix this tape to things that I loan out so that they're easily tracked back to me. I tried looking around at various shops online, but the options are overwhelming, and they seem to be geared toward packing tape and business applications. All I need is one or two narrow rolls, not an entire box of the stuff! Has anyone done anything like this that can share some of your expertise with me?

Book identification: old study skills book

Can anyone identify this 25-year-old book? It's a book on study skills (reading, note-taking, time management, etc.) for college students, published before 1985. There's one particular line. In the section on time management, the authors note (paraphrasing): This may seem like overkill now, but if you become (say) a lawyer, you'll need to manage your time far more intensively. Does anyone remember reading this? [more inside]

Interactive fiction game title...

I'm trying to remember the name of a piece of Interactive Fiction (IF) I once played, but remember almost nothing about. You start the game, sleeping next to your lover--and you can decide the gender of both your character and the lover--in what is essentially a hunting lodge. Your character can do something like shift into other times or other identities--I can't quite remember. I recall that it is supposed to be very long by normal IF standards. Any help?

Can anyone identify this gold ring with an odd design?

This ring turned up at my deceased grandmother's house and no one recognized it. General consensus was that it looked like a man's ring from the 1970s. The band/base appears to be gold and the design appears to be rose gold. Can anyone recognize the design or shed any light on this? Pics: 1 2 3
