We make high quality / durable plastic tags.
“Boomerang tags are the only tags we use for our dogs and they literally last their lifetimes. We always order their plastic tags, recommended to us by a dog rescue/adoption organization. They are lightweight, practically noiseless & come in a variety of colors to match collars. Boomerang tags are a great value!” ~ Linda M.
Sadly, because so many cut rate plastic tags are produced these days many people believe the material is not suitable for Pet ID Tags. This is not the case if a thick ABS plastic is used and a stainless steel eyelet is staked into the attaching hole, which we do. Not one of our competitors I am aware of makes a plastic tag equal to the ones we produce. Ironically most Pet ID Tags these days are made of aluminum, but, believe it or not, my plastic tags will outlast a tag made of aluminum by a factor of 4 to 1. Our plastic tags do not delaminate, break, or color fade and we guarantee them to last at least two years. Plastic tags must have a stainless steel eyelet or the tag will fall off very soon after it is attached to the pet’s collar. Brass eyelets are just a small step above no eyelet at all and a regular steel eyelet will quickly rust. We put a stainless steel eyelet in every plastic tag we make.
This is interesting: In situations where people can see our tags on a display in a pet store, our plastic tags outsell stainless by a factor of three to one. On the internet where people cannot see our tags “in person,” the stainless tags outsells plastic by two to one. Also, many of the humane organizations that buy tags from us buy choose our plastic tags.
To sum up, I have only one priority when I make a tag: durability. This is because I know that your pet’s safe return may very well depend on the tag you purchase from me. I am an honest and honorable person and providing the best tag I can is a responsibility that I take VERY seriously. I will not produce any tag I would not trust my own pet’s safe return to. A pet store owner told me “I put one of your plastic tags on my dog and it was still readable eight years later..” No traditional hanging tag will last forever, but our plastic tags are durable while still being colorful and the text on a plastic tag will always be easier to read due to the contrasting letter color.
NOTE: No plastic tag can stand up to being chewed on, not even ours. In general, this is only a problem for teething puppies. We guarantee our plastic tags will not break during the first two years of the purchase date, but cannot guarantee them to be, “chew proof” – they aren’t.
