About

How Ebonypaws started

I knew no matter what I chose to do in life it would have to be something relating to animals. My intended career path when graduating from a Southern NH high school, was to be either a pet portraiture or a nature & wildlife photographer. Because I received a partial tuition scholarship, I found myself studying photography at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, PA.

Right time, right place. On the way home from classes, waiting for the walk signal to change - a little black kitten was thrown out of a bar! I scooped him up, brought him home and named him Ebony (ebonypaws :). He was with me for almost 19 years before he crossed the rainbow bridge at the very beginning of 2013.

Somehow I ended up on the pre-press, retouching side of catalog print production (not animal related). Seeking a way to make a little extra money on the side, I opened my first shop on Etsy summer of 2007, mainly selling my photography and a few pet tags. After losing my job in 2009, with little hope of finding a new job in a dying industry, I decided to build on designs I already had and started making pet tags full time. I now have over 350 designs and have added several other products - all featuring my photography or illustrations.

The inspiration behind my ideas comes from all sorts of places but
many of my ideas come from experiences with my pets, so I consider them to be part of my staff :) For instance: Ollie is a Border Collie Mix rescued from St. Martin. He is why we can’t have nice things.
Birdie Puggles has the vocal range of her Beagle side with a side of drama queen.
Jack the cat was the inspiration behind my tripping hazard tag after he tried to kill me at 2am by tripping me on the stairs.
Domino is just a fluffy hot mess.

  • Stephanie

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator

    I went to school in Pittsburgh, PA for Photography (pre-digital). I spent over a decade working in the catalog printing pre-press /retouching industry but I find myself slowly working over to Illustration :)

  • Ebony

    Curator, Namesake

    Ebony • 1994 - 2013 Rescued off the Streets of Pittsburgh, PA in 1994 at the young age of 4 months. Even at 18.5, he still ran the house and kept the others in line (Ollie included).

  • Oliver

    Maker, Designer, Touble Maker, Inspiration

    Rescued from St. Martin. He has a nose for trouble. A good amount of my tags have been inspired by Ollie.

  • Birdie Puggles

    Inspiration

    Half Pug, half Beagle. Her vocal range is definitely from her Beagle side. Any tag that has to do with howling is inspired by Birdie, plus she is quite the little drama queen :)

  • Jack

    Curator, Laptop Warmer

    Big goofball that loves to put his paws on the laptop track pad while I'm working. Also a Tripping Hazard.

  • Domino

    Curator, Photo Assistant

    Rescued from Lowell, MA by a great organization, Kitty Angels. He's big & fluffy, his nicknames are Velcro & Fireball and he really loves to help with Photo shoots.

A good amount of tags have been inspired by my own pets. For instance - Oliver is a foster failure/rescued, island dog, who's quirky, devious and a bit of a devil dog, who eats random things :) I also have 2 rescued kitties, Domino is a little odd and has a fluffy butt :) Jack is a giant, lovable, double pawed bowling ball :)

My shop is named after my cat Ebony who passed away in January 2013.

I love Appreciation Photos! Which I share on my Facebook page :)

** TIPS **
CHOOSING A SIZE:
Because pets come in all shapes and sizes, with varying degrees of fluff, it's hard for me to say this weight should get this size tag, etc.
US:
• Except for the XL, I have listed which coins represent the round part of the S,M & L sizes. **** Hold up the coins up to your pet, most of you will find that a quarter is not as large as you think :)
(Medium is my best seller online but Large is my best seller to people who purchase in person, at fairs)

SPACE ON THE BACK
I don't have a character count. I do my best to fit your info, to do that I have to
• Take out punctuation marks to save space
- for example:
--- quotes around pets name - "NAME" becomes NAME
--- periods at the end of street abbreviations - St., Dr., Ln. become St, Dr, Ln etc
• Abbreviate Street to St, Drive to Dr, etc
• If this is a tag that is going on your pet, your zip code is not needed. It usually ends up taking much needed space.

CUSTOM COLORS
• If you are choosing more than one color, please let me know which color goes with which part of the tag. For example: Chevron tags instead of just #22, 23 & 30, add a little more detail - Chevron stripes #'s 22&23, name stripe #30 with #22 text.
• When selecting custom colors, I will always use the number you provide not the color name ex: #34 - light pink. #34 is actually hot pink and is what will be on your tag.

WHOLESALE:
It is hard for me to offer these tags as wholesale since I have to add the custom info to the back of them at the time of ordering, so they can't really be pre-ordered.
• THAT BEING SAID - I can make both Aluminum and Stainless Steel tags, with my images on the front, that can be engraved on the back if you have an engraver or someone in your area that can engrave pet tags.
- Please contact me to purchase a sample tag for you or an engraver try out. (I will refund the cost of the sample tag once you place a wholesale order)
- Aluminum is available in the Large (1.25 inches / 3.17cm) only
Stainless Steel is available in the Large (1.25 inches / 3.17cm) & Small Bone (S- 1.5 x 1inch) only
