Our State of The Art Laser Engraving Stands The Test of Time…No Bones About It!
Deep Engraved Tags
Deep engraving along with hardness of material is what makes an engraved pet id tag last. Silver Paw uses a very powerful state of the art fiber laser which actually vaporizes metal to engrave a surface. Our deep engraved lines are actually ruts that have been removed from the metal with a depth of .004 of an inch, well beyond what ordinary pet tags have to offer. The deep engraved 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.
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.
Change of Address or Phone
We guarantee the engraving on our engraved pet id 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.
We use an arial block, comic sans, or segoe print font. You get to decide which font to use when you fill in the engraving on your virtual tag during the order process!
Engraving Information Suggestions
Because our tags are all round, we suggest you place lines with fewer characters at the top and the bottom of tags when possible. The center lines can accommodate more characters without information becoming too small. Of course we realize this is not always possible.
If you place your dog’s first and last name on line 1 of your engraving, the characters are going to look smaller than on the other lines. Placing a last name on line 2 can sometimes be a better fit.
We recommend placing phone numbers on center lines where they can be made nice and large. Phone numbers are often the most important information you can place on your tag. If you have a land line and cell phone, include both. You may be out looking for your missing dog when the phone rings at home and no one is there!
There is NO need for zip codes on your tag if you already have a town and state listed. If you wish to save space, you might want to include only a zip code.
