A Look at Custom Pet Tags

Customized pet ID tags feature information chosen by the customer and can include personal messages, information about medical conditions or dietary needs. Made-to-order tags can be engraved, embossed, personalized, and reflective.

Engraved tags are available in different colors and styles such as bone, mouse, round, square, and more. They cost as little as $3.00. Large tags may have five lines of information and small may have only three lines of engraved text. Both sides of tags can have engraved text. Tags can have engraved art work and logos of the customer’s choice. Laser engraved tags displaying information on both sides are expensive. Personalized engraved tags can be made on order. Both computer and hand-engraved pet tags are available in the market.

Wear-proof and sturdy personalized pet tags can have engraved text on both the sides. The text may contain two phone numbers, and vet and medical information. All personalized ID tags should have name of pet and the owner, address and telephone number. They may carry a “reward” depending on owner’s willingness to pay a reward if lost pet is found. Tags can be designed in different shapes, sizes and colors. Light-weight tags come in stainless steel, plastic and aluminum. Personalized pet tags can be bought at as little as $3.00.

Reflective pet tags feature a reflective sticker on their back for reflecting headlights to make drivers aware of pets roaming on the roads. Reflective pet tag stickers cost as little as $1.00. They protect pets especially in the night. Reflective tags make pets visible even from a distance when vehicle light falls on the tag surface. Reflective tags without batteries save pets in the night and offer emergency data.

Reflective pet tags were introduced a decade ago. They are brightly colored stickers that shine. The reflective coating is placed on non-engraved side of the tags. The coating reflects only in very low light conditions.
