Deep engraving along with hardness of material is what makes a pet tag last. Unreadable information can make tags useless at a critical time. Silver Paw Pet Tags feature a very deep engraving of .004 of an inch, well beyond what ordinary pet tags have to offer. Our depth of engraving stands the test of time and sets us well apart from the rest.
Silver Paw uses a very powerful state of the art fiber laser which actually vaporizes metal to engrave a surface. Engraved lines are actually ruts that have been removed from the metal. The lines are left with a blackened crust which is actually carbon that has risen to the surface of the metal due to the intense heat created during the laser process. The blackened lines are an added bonus feature enhancing readability. It takes approximately 10 minutes to laser engrave a 4 line Silver Paw tag and that’s after the casting and finishing processes have been performed.
Many companies are currently using laser machines but they are not powerful enough to do any more than lightly etch a surface and will wear quickly over time.
We guarantee the engraving on our stainless steel tags for life. If you have a change of address or any problem whatsoever with your engraving, we will take the pet id tag back, regrind, polish, and engrave it all over again! Try finding that service anywhere else... WE are 100% committed to our tags and our customers.
Watch how a state of the art fiber laser actually vaporizes stainless steel lines working horizontally and vertically at lightning speed.
