Announcement   Thanks for stopping by my pet-friendly shop! I design personalized pet tags for fur babies and custom metal pieces for humans. I hope you enjoy browsing through them.

Did you know? My USA-made designs are hand stamped by me, not by machine. Because of this, they are not perfect — they are charming and unique. :-)

My pet designs have become so popular, I can hardly keep up with production! Each piece requires a lot of personal attention to create, and are sometimes unavailable for purchase while I catch up on back orders. I appreciate repeat customers and referrals, so please check back or message me if you are looking for a specific tag or coin.

I'd love to hear from you! If you have any questions or comments, contact me by clicking on either the 'Contact' or 'Ask a question' button and I will respond quickly. Please visit my "About" page for behind-the scenes info!

My global branding is @fabupetdesigns, and I'm most active on Instagram, posting about my products and my pets.

I Love these pet tags!!! They are well made and were packaged extremely well. The only thing I would have changed was that the hole on my “Lucy” tag was just a little small and hard to manipulate the small ring around. However I would definitely buy more of these in the future, can’t find anything like them anywhere else.

About

Custom Pet Tags and Memorials. Internationally loved!

Welcome to Fabu Pet Designs ~ an online pet boutique dedicated in loving memory of my Miniature Schnauzer, Winston.

I value your trust in my ability to make bling for your fur baby! As a way to show my appreciation, I donate a portion of my sales to a local shelter where I adopted my own rescue pups. Your purchase also helps feed my dogs and horses, so THANK YOU for supporting this small handmade business!

I've been on Etsy since 2008, when I began selling handmade jewelry under the shop name of Fabu Beads. In 2015, I began hand-stamping on metal, and took it a step further by soldering metals into 3-D layers. These products became so popular with pet owners in the USA and Internationally that I changed my shop name to Fabu Pet Designs to align with the pet designs I sell today.

Your special Fabu piece will be handled with care -- wrapped in tissue paper, tucked inside colorful gift packaging, snug in a small plastic zip bag, and finally, my super-secret protective sleeve (you'll see). I ship in a bubble wrap envelope to ensure safe delivery to you or the recipient (I can add a handwritten note to a recipient, too!).

My global branding is @fabupetdesigns and you can follow my pets and products on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and at FabuPetDesigns.com.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions

WHAT MAKES FABU TAGS SPECIAL?

My Signature Style 3-D pet tags, pet memorials and medallions are soldered with at least two layers of metal, so that the indentation marks from the hand stamping on the backside aren't visible. The result is a high-quality, professional looking product. I don't use a machine to stamp the letters/numbers; it is all done by me, individually by hand. This means each one will have its own character and be unique.

WHICH COMBINATION OF METALS ARE BEST FOR FABU DOG TAGS?

For the best durability, brass and nickel silver are best. Copper is a softer metal and while it makes a pretty combination, it will show dings faster if it hangs on a collar with other tags. Copper also darkens from oxidation more quickly than brass and silver. For single layer tags, brass or bronze will hold up best. The life of any of these tags will last longer if they are the only tag on your dog's collar.

HOW ARE FABU TAGS MADE?

There are many steps involved in creating my Signature pieces for you out of raw metal. I personally complete each step myself. Because each design is handcrafted, there are slight variations in patina, stamping depth and spacing, making each piece totally unique. Depending on the design, each piece is:

> individual letters and numbers stamped by hand;
> hammered and filed smooth;
> cleaned, soldered, hole punched and cleaned again;
> patina applied to give it a shadow around the edges;
> polished by hand and machine;
> black coloring is applied to letters and numbers;
> protective wax sealant applied and buffed to help slow oxidation;
> a split ring or clasp is attached.

PATINA ON FABU TAGS

Many of my 3-D metal tags have a dark "patina" applied by me to the edges, which is unique on each tag and part of the design. Otherwise, metal tags and coins made of copper, brass, bronze or nickel silver will patina naturally over time (aluminum and pewter do not tarnish). I apply a thin protective wax when the piece is new to help prevent oxidation. On pet tags, the normal wear and tear of hanging from a collar and/or tapping against other tags will dull the finish over time, but it remains a durable piece. Buff it with a jeweler's polishing cloth to remove oxidation and restore shine. Letters can be touched up with a permanent marker.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Some metals are inevitably going to oxidize over time, especially copper. My 3-D metal tags and coins are coated with an invisible protective wax to help curb the oxidation process. I include care instructions and a complimentary polishing pad with my 3-D products.

As your tag or coin becomes dark or dull from oxidation, Google is full of ideas to clean it (lemon juice and salt, ketchup, etc.) but eventually the original wax coating will wear off. After cleaning your piece, buff it with a polishing cloth to restore shine. Maintain the shine by applying a thin coat of jeweler's wax or good quality car wax; it will leave a beautiful high polished finish and help prevent oxidation. Use a black permanent marker to restore letters and numbers.
