To keep your Dog Tags looking at their best, this is what we recommend:
Wash in warm water with a mild liquid soap. Use a soft cloth to gently rub away any dirt on the tag and rinse. Dry thoroughly before reattaching to collar.
Please do not attach the lead to the split ring of the tag.
Our tags will eventually tarnish with time and wear – but this only adds to their charm
Every tag is lovingly hand stamped, making each one completely unique. Please note this means they will all be different, due to the nature of hand stamping the letters will not be perfectly aligned, some may appear to be stamped deeper and no two tags will be alike.
It is up to you to decide the suitability of this product for your pet, please check for wear and tear regularly. Do not leave your pet unattended wearing the product. No responsibility will taken if your pet comes into harm whilst wearing this product.
There are a few very important factors to consider before purchasing!
We have many different designs that have a layered design. The two discs will jingle-jangle. However, if the dogs don’t like the noise, then you’d be better off with a collar slide or a single, thicker disc that can have the number on the reverse. (You may get a slight reverse imprint due to hammering of the metal).
What metal should I choose for my tag?
This is mostly personal preference!
Copper,Brass, and Aluminium are all great options.
Here are the main notes about each one:
Copper: Copper will tarnish the quickest. It will turn from its shiny, almost rose gold color to a darker bronze over time.
Luckily, it is easy to polish up and will look brand new Copper is also very durable.
Brass: It will still tarnish, however it is a little slower than copper. You can clean brass the same way you can clean copper, Brass is also durable.
Aluminum: Aluminum is the softest of the three metal options. That means that it is the easiest to bend. If your dog is rough on tags, I do not recommend this option. Because of the softness of this metal, the stamps show up wonderful and are very deep in the metal. Aluminum won’t tarnish like copper or brass, but still gets dirty. Cleaning is a little bit easier for this metal.
Aluminium is a wonderfully lightweight metal. It has the beauty of any other metal but it comes with bonus points; it is cheaper, beautifully lightweight & it is hypoallergenic so perfect if other metals make you a bit on the irritated side.
Copper & brass will tarnish This can be remedied with a slice of lemon & a clean cloth or traditional metal cleaner like Brasso
Copper and brass are the harder metals.
Clanking against a food bowl, scratching, playing & generally being a dog will cause scratches & denting over time.
There is no guideline to timeframes as all dogs are different. Your dog may keep their tag for years, they may destroy it within 24 hours.
Please inspect item after each use. Avoid continuous water exposure
The blacking may wear away over time, the same conditions apply as above, Simply colour in the lettering with a permanent marker. Wipe away the excess with rubbing alcohol. The indented letters will hold onto the permanent marker.
