Last year a neighbor called me because she found the metal pet ID tag for my dog Shadow lying on the sidewalk. The tag had broken apart while we were taking a walk and I didn’t notice it was missing. This might sound silly, but discovering that Shadow’s ID tag was gone was as upsetting to me as losing my cell phone. I consider having a pet tag as my first line of defense to keep my dogs safe so I was very interested when Dura-tag™ asked me to try their new personalized photo pet tags.
The Jolly Awesome Pet Tags are made with an easy-to-use online design tool that let me upload pictures of my dogs on one side and print my contact information on the other. The process was pretty simple, even for someone with limited computer skills like me.
I loaded pictures of Sophie, Cody and Shadow onto the template labeled “F” and added text on the template labeled with the letter “B.” I had to resize my picture a bit so it covered the entire tag and that was the only slightly tricky part.
I created this three tag set:
Dura-tag™ started JollyAwesomePetTags.com after the founder of the company tried to replace the ID tag for his own dog. He found all sorts of aluminum pet tags that came in lots of shapes, but none that were truly customized with photos of your own dog or cat.
Since then, pet owners have been using the ID tags on their animal’s collars to keep them safe and in some interesting ways that Dura-tag™ didn’t expect. Customers have used the tags as key rings, added them as luggage tags and as ID for pet and sports gear. For some people it’s like keeping a permanent picture of their fur kid with them at all times.
You can also give them as gifts with the Jolly Awesome Gift Card.
The tags are durable and scratch-resistant little original works of art. They’re designed to take abuse and come with a one year guarantee that includes if they get lost or if you have a change of address. The Mix or Match pet tags come as a set of three for $16.95 or you can buy a single ID tag for $12.95.
I had fun creating my set of tags and I’ll keep you posted if I find a new way to use them.
