We use very fine jewelers saw blades to cut and pierce all of our handmade pet ID tags and keychains. This is how we achieve the finest detail and quality in the business. Thank you for choosing TagsForTails, a well established Etsy shop, founded in 2012.

About

TagsForTails features the best materials, workmanship, and customer service!

"The idea for TagsForTails began with Louie, my rescue Rat Terrier." says owner, Richinda. "Having recently brought him home and not wanting to lose him, I decided to make a custom ID tag. The store bought tags were just not special enough! Making that first tag was fun, I used the tools in class while attending college for a Jewelry and Metalsmithing degree. After making Louie's unique tag, I thought others may want unique pet ID tags for their dogs and cats as well....TagsForTails was born. My Etsy shop opened for business in March of 2012 and has been going strong ever since."

TagsForTails has grown into a thriving Etsy store and expanded its selection from unique pet ID tags to personalized keychains, sterling silver and 14K gold-filled jewelry, and custom order items. We put our heart and soul into the 100% handmade items which we carry. Each item is made to order so it can be completely personalized to your needs.

Along with carrying great products, we also wholeheartedly believe in fantastic customer service. We will happily answer your questions, find out your needs for custom orders (so they are exactly what you have been searching for), and if we do happen to make a product you are unhappy with, we will work with you to make it right. We LOVE what we do, and hope you do too!

Thank you for choosing us :)

Shop policies

Last updated on October 25, 2016
Thank you for shopping at Tags for Tails. We believe in quality handmade items. Please feel free to message us with any questions after reviewing our shop policies.

***ABOUT OUR PROCESS: TagsForTails is different from the rest because we make everything in our shop 100% by hand. What does this mean? Well, we DO NOT use pre-made metal blanks like many of our competitors (every shape is hand cut from sheet metal with a very fine jewelers saw blade), your personalization message is added one character at a time with steel stamps and a hammer. The hole in the tag is drilled with a hand drill, edge finishing is done with a hand file. The only mechanized system we use is a rotary tumbler to add a final polish because it yields better results than hand finishing. Because of our unique production style, we are able to offer very high quality products that you can not find other places. We are also flexible with custom request shapes and messages. Choosing TagsForTails is choosing quality, unique design, and great customer service.

Your order will ship approximately 10-16 days from your date of purchase.

Your order will be cancelled and a full refund will be issued if your item has NOT been made yet. If your item has already been created then a refund can not be issued due to the custom nature of our work. This is why it is very important to contact us right away if you wish to cancel your order.

***MAKING CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER: If you need to make changes to your order (pet names, metal color choice, etc...) please let TagsForTails know ASAP. If the item has already been made, we can not change your personalization details due to the custom nature of our pieces.

***DISCOUNTS: Discounts on bulk orders vary based on quantity but start at 10% off on orders over 10 items, and caps at 33% off on orders over 100 items. Some items are excluded from this offer.

***WHOLESALE ORDERS: We never supply our shapes to other vendors at a discounted rate.
Shipping
***HOW LONG YOUR ORDER WILL TAKE TO SHIP: Product is handmade to order and takes time to complete. Current production time is approximately 10-16 days from date of purchase for your order to ship out. Items are made and customized after you place your order and are made in a first in first out basis, unless rush options have been discussed prior to purchase. Once shipped, a notification message with tracking number will be sent to you, letting you know your item is on its way.

***RUSH PRODUCTION: RUSH ORDERS WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED IF WE ARE CONTACTED PRIOR TO THE SALE. We have a standard 10-16 day production time (PLUS shipping) as every aspect of our items is made by hand . Rush orders incur an additional fee and are sometimes unavailable depending on holidays, current workload, or personal schedule.

***USA DOMESTIC SHIPPING: Product is shipped First Class via the United States Postal Service (USPS) and generally take 3-5 business days. We will ship your order to the address given at checkout. If this address is incorrect, please contact TagsForTails with the correct address ASAP. All USA Domestic orders will have tracking. Domestic orders over $75 will have tracking and insurance.

***APO/FPO SHIPPING: Yes, we can ship to APO/FPO boxes. If you are unsure how to fill out your Shipping Address at checkout, please contact TagsForTails and we will help you. This information has to be entered in a very specific way for it to be recognized by the Post Office.

***INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (outside USA): We will ship your order to the address given at checkout, please make sure you enter this information EXACTLY as it should appear on your package. If this address is incorrect, please contact TagsForTails with the correct address ASAP. Shipping internationally is at the buyers risk. If you would like shipping insurance on your international order, please contact TagsForTails prior to purchase (shipping cost will be higher). Shipping insurance claims will refund the purchase price of lost international packages. If no shipping insurance is purchased, the buyer assumes the risk and cost of undelivered items. Tracking is not available outside of the USA and all customs fees (if any) will be paid by the buyer. Once international orders are shipped, they are out of the sellers control.

***UNDELIVERABLE ORDERS: If an order is returned to TagsForTails as undeliverable, a reshipping fee will apply. We will contact you in the event an order has been returned. TagsForTails will not refund or remake your order if an incorrect address is given at checkout and your order is lost in the mail, as this is out of TagsForTails control. PLEASE make sure your Etsy shipping address is correct, if it is not contact us via Etsy Conversations ASAP.

***SHIPPING DISCLAIMER: TagsForTails is NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST, STOLEN, or LATE DELIVERY on packages. Please contact your local post office in the event this happens. We use the post office for their shipping service but have no other affiliation.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact TagsForTails via Etsy Conversations if you are unsatisfied with your product. We do our very best to find solutions to issues that may arise and will respond within 24 hours (unless on vacation).

***ORDER ERRORS (shop's fault): If we make an error on your piece (we are only human!) a remake will be made as soon as possible and sent out free of charge. Just send us a photo and short description of the discrepancy via Etsy Conversations and we will be in touch as soon as possible to remedy the situation.

***ORDER ERRORS (buyer's fault): We do not issue refunds, exchanges, or discounts for items which you have given incorrect information. This includes, but is not limited to: name or phrase misspellings and incorrect phone numbers. Make sure your personalization information given at checkout is correct (did you type your pets name and phone number correctly, or spell your message out exactly as it should be on your keychain?). If there is something wrong with the information you gave, please contact TagsForTails ON ETSY as soon as you can. Again, we DO NOT refund, exchange, or discount on orders with errors made by the buyer.

***MY DOG LOST THEIR TAG: If your furry friend loses their pet ID tag, we can not be held responsible unless an obvious defect in craftsmanship or materials (does NOT include split rings, see below) is present. Please send us a photo if you feel your tag has a defect. Our metal Pet ID Tags will last for years with normal wear and tear. Split rings (which attach the tags) are made to fail if seriously caught on something (see further details in 'Additional Information' below) and refunds or new tags will not be made in the event the split ring fails and the item is lost. Never use the split ring to attach the leash to your pet's collar, if your pet tries to run the ring will fail. We recommend checking the split ring once a week to look for signs of wear or loosening. If this is found, replace the ring as soon as possible.

***OTHER DAMAGES BY PET: We cannot be held responsible if your pet damages their pet ID tag (chewing, rolling on concrete, and other pet related incidents). IF your dog chews, there is a risk the tag will be damaged.


***A NOTE ON HANDMADE TAGS: Each letter or number is aligned and stamped individually by hand with steel stamps and a hammer. Due to the hand stamped nature of the item, letter alignment may be slightly irregular and stamping impressions may be shallow/deep compared to other letters on the item. This is the beauty of hand stamped items, they show the touch of a human hand. We do everything in our power to align letters, numbers, and words neatly. Refunds, exchanges, or discounts are not issued due to the natural slight variations by which this process is known and loved for. We will not send you a tag which we would not be proud to show off.
Additional policies and FAQs
***CONTACTING TagsForTails: We will not contact you via telephone with questions about your order, even if you request this form of communication. We have a personal line and have had privacy issues in the past, thank you for your understanding. If you need to contact us, we are quick to respond to Etsy messages and this is the best way to get in touch. Facebook and email is checked very infrequently and we highly discourage you from using either to contact us.

***CUSTOM REQUEST ORDERS: We LOVE custom orders! Contact TagsForTails with your design idea and we will go from there. Copyright and Trademark images can NOT be made due to copyright infringement laws.

***OUR FONTS AND SYMBOLS:
-4mm Large Block Uppercase
-2.5mm Small Block Uppercase
-1.5mm Tiny Block Uppercase
-2.5 mm Small Block Lowercase
-1.5-3mm Handwritten Style (in upper and lowercase)

***CREATIVE JUDGEMENT AND MINOR DESIGN VARIATIONS: We reserve the right for creative judgment and minor changes to the design without contacting you. This includes but is not limited to: word and number placement, size of letters or font, size of heart or stars, and placement of bail (hole where the keyring goes). Our goal is to make the most visually appealing item possible in the time frame given.

***SPLIT RING DETAILS: All Pet ID Tags and Keychain orders come with one 5/8" silver tone split ring per item to attach to a collar or key ring. These split rings are made to fail when they are caught on something because there is a risk of injury or suffocation to your pet if they did not come apart. That being said, they are durable and will stand up to everyday wear and tear. We recommend checking your pets collar or your key chain once a week to inspect for signs of damage and replace the split ring if it appears to be worn out.

***NATURAL PATINA, aka "TARNISHED" METAL: We use solid brass (gold tone), solid nickel (silver tone) and solid Copper. These metals will gain a patina over time. This means that they will "tarnish" and gain warm earthy tones. The copper will start to look like a worn penny, the brass a warm shade of yellow brown. The nickel turns slightly less shiny but overall retains its color the best of the three. This is a natural process and cannot be reversed. If you are concerned about this, choose "silver tone" at checkout or simply use a green Scotch Brite Pad to gently remove this patina when it starts to show. We do not use harsh chemicals to seal our products for your pets safety and ours. Refunds,exchanges, or discounts will not be issued if you do not like the patina your tag gains as it is a naturally occurring process which we have no control over.

***LEGAL DISCLAIMER: While we make every attempt to round edges and create safe products that will last for years we can not be held responsible if you or your pet is in any way injured because of our product.

BY PURCHASING OUR PRODUCT YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE ABOVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF TAGSFORTAILS SHOP POLICIES. We are happy to help with any questions you may have regarding these policies, just ask.

Sizing details

Sizes can be found in the item description of each product. MOST pet ID tags are sized for a medium dog unless otherwise mentioned (some are 'petite' size).

We can alter sizes to your needs (smaller and larger), but please contact us prior to purchase just to make sure your requested info will fit (and an additional fee MAY apply to larger sizes).

Care instructions

Check the split ring weekly for signs of wear and replace as needed so your wonderful TagsForTails keychain or Pet ID Tag is not lost!

Each tag or keychain will gain a natural patina over time. This is normal and will vary depending on atmospheric conditions in your area. We love the warm brown (copper) and golden brown (gold tone- brass) patina these metals will gain over time. IF you would like a tag that does not patina, choose 'silver tone' at checkout.
