The Basics Regarding CollarTag™ Contact Information:
Bottom Line First:
Whatever you key into the tag text fields on our site will be on the tag(s) you receive from us; we do not do any data entry here to fill your order, we download the actual text you key into the tag text fields on our site and use it to create your pet’s tag text.
We engrave whatever YOU FEEL will be most beneficial to the finder of your lost pet in their effort to contact you. You can key any text you want into any text line we offer. You can also transfer license and rabies tag information onto a second CollarTags™ and thus eliminate the need for any traditional hanging tags – rabies and license tags are noisy and not attractive.
Our standard format is illustrated in the pictures of the CollarTags™ below.
NOTE: This is not necessarily what I would recommend that you request to have engraved on your pet’s tag. Personally I feel cell phone numbers are of much more benefit than a street address, the finder of you lost pet is going to call you. On our own dog’s tags we do not list our address, we list our cell numbers and our vet’s phone number.
- We offer 5 lines of text on the 5/8, 3/4 and 1 inch wide CollarTag™ sizes. The mini size, correct for 3/8 wide collars, is limited to 4 lines of not more than 14 characters.
- We do not engrave text on the backside of CollarTags™ because the back of them is against the pet’s collar. However, to achieve more information you can install two or more CollarTags™ on the same collar.
- You may want to list several phone numbers instead of an address, you may want to have your vet’s name and phone number engraved on your pet’s tag.
- We do recommend that you avoid listing your last name after your pet’s name, this is obvious and will only serve to require the text on the pet name line to be smaller and more crowded looking. Also: zip codes are of no valued to the finder of a lost pet.
Regarding the image below:
- The CollarTag™ in the middle is the adjustable length collar style, i.e., correct for collars that close with a snap or clasp. They are guaranteed not to fall off your pet’s collar and any that do are replaced free of charge, I could not provide this warranty if they were not secure. This tag is FAR MORE secure than a tag that depends on a ring or hook to secure it.
- The CollarTag™ on the left is the single-ply slide-on style. The style that is correct for single-ply collars with a pin buckle.
- The CollarTag™ on the right is the double-thick slide-on style. Correct for double-thick nylon and thick leather collars.
