Can I use dog tags as pet id tags on my pets?

Because of the size of these dog tags they may not  be suitable for some "toy" sized dogs or cats. These dog tags make great pet tags because the text is deeply embossed and will not rub off in time like most pet store 'engraved' pet id tags. They can be ordered at: Pet Tag Order Form and come complete with a dog tag silencer in your choice of colors and a 'S'-Hook to attach to the collar.

What sort of information can I put on my dog tags?

We sell thousands of sets of dog tags every year and the majority of people just order dog tags with  personal identification information such as:

  • NAME
  • STREET ADDRESS
  • CITY, STATE AND ZIP
  • HOME PHONE NUMBER

We also get many requests for bible and personal verses, medical information, love messages,  company sales promotions, identification for girl and boy scout troops, and mementos and souvenirs for special events. See samples at link below:

How do I use dog tags as a fundraiser?

A popular fundraising idea is to order a large quantity of dog tags for your group to resell. You take the orders and we will  sell you the tags at wholesale bulk prices. These orders are easily ordered using our Fast-Quote system. Further information for customizing your fundraising using these large bulk orders is available at our Bulk Order Information page.

How long will it take for my dog tags to arrive?

When we receive an ONLINE order with payment, the dog tags are generally made and shipped the next business day. The tags are shipped by U.S. Mail and will usually arrive anywhere within the continental U.S. within 1 week.

We have found that shipments to Canada can take up to 2 weeks to arrive.

MAIL orders, which have the longest delay,  can take a week to arrive here and another week to be shipped back.
