IMPORTANT! Read this before you buy!
You are probably visiting several websites that sell tags, looking for the best value for money. Before you choose what to buy, and where from, there are some important considerations when buying pet tags. Here are some pointers:-
Is the tag a solid, good quality tag?
There are thousands of tags on sale on the internet, and a lot of these are badly manufactured. They are usually quite cheap, made from very soft metal alloys that may crack and break over time - particularly where the tag's hole is concerned.
Tags with a looped "ring" at the top are particularly vulnerable to breaking or snapping. Very often, these tags are not inteded to be pet tags, but simple "charms" or "pendants". Some sellers buy these very cheaply, then sell them as pet tags. You'll probably pay very little for them, but they may break within a few days or weeks - then you'll have to go buy another tag.
Are the tags DEEP ENGRAVED?
There are a lot of engraving techniques being used to engrave pet tags. Some engravers use what's known as "diamond impact" engraving, where a fine diamond-tipped "hammer" creates a small scratched dot on the surface of the tag. It may look OK when the tag is new, but because the engraving is nothing more than a superficial mark, it can soon wear off and be un-readable.
Other engravers will use laser marking, which is OK on some surfaces like anodised aluminium. But again... it is mostly just a superficial mark which can wear away quite soon as your pet bumps, bashes, scrapes and rubs the tag.
A pet tag must be DEEP ENGRAVED. Here, a diamond-tipped router tool literally carves a groove into the metal, removing the metal in the process. This leaves a permanent mark in the metal that will not fade or rub off. It is more expensive to engrave like this, because the cutting process blunts the diamond relatively quickly, but a good pet tag engraver will know that the text on the tag is perhaps its most important feature, so will deep-engrave your tag to make sure the lettering is PERMANENT.
We deep engrave all pet tags.
Is the split ring strong?
Practically all pet tag sellers will provide a free split ring to attach to the tag, but just how strong is this ring? If the split ring is not made of sprung steel, or is too "thin" or small, it will soon break or open up, allowing the tag to fall off.
We use hardened sprung steel split rings that are then plated with other metals to both protect them, and to match the base colour of the metal the tag is made from.
TagMakers GUARANTEES your tag against defective materials and workmanship. We will replace a tag free of charge if it is shown to not meet high quality standards.
If you have seen a tag you like on another site, but are not sure if it meets all the points we make above, then phone the seller and ask them questions, using our info above as a guide.
