FAQs - Dog Tags

When we receive an ONLINE order with payment, your metal dog tags are generally made and shipped the next business day. Dog tags are shipped via Courierpost in New Zealand and TOLL Priority for Australia and will normally take 2 to 7 days for delivery.

We sell thousands of sets of dog tags every year and the majority of people just order dog tags with personal identification information such as: NAME, STREET ADDRESS, CITY, HOME OR MOBILE PHONE NUMBER, WORK PHONE NUMBER. We also get many requests for custom dog tags with personal verses, medical information, love messages, company sales promotions and team building, event entry ticketing, identification for girl and boy scout troops, and mementos and souvenirs for special events.

The first tag is suspended on the longer necklace chain which is approximately 24″ in length. The second tag is suspended on the shorter extension (4″ chain) so it hangs no further than 2 1/2″ under the first one. Silencers (a rubber cover for the dog tag) are used to prevent clanking of the metal dog tags.

Each dog tag will take up to 5 lines with up to 15 letters, characters or spaces per line.

Genuine military dog tags have the information embossed/stamped permanently into the tags. They generally have the text in the following order: IDENTIFICATION NUMBER LAST NAME / SURNAME FIRST NAME / MIDDLE INITIAL BLOOD TYPE RELIGION
