A touch of style for your pets collar with the Barker & Bone hand stamped dog tag. Each of these round tags are made from raw copper, are a durable 1.2mm thick and attached by a matching split ring.
All of our pet ID tags are hand made in our studio in Sydney's Hills District using traditional stamping & finishing techniques and will develop a beautiful patina over time.
Because of the traditional hand stamping technique you can expect the letters on your tag to have an authentic look which will make it stand out from laser engraving. Each letter will be carefully spaced however some inconsistency will remain- we believe this adds to the beauty of the tag!
Make sure everyone at the park knows your doggos name by getting one of these custom hand stamped, personalised dog tags.
The Important Stuff
Diameter: Available in 25mm (1") & 31mm (1 1/4") Thickness: 1.2mm (18 gauge) Material: Raw Copper
Please note- Due to the nature of hand stamping, we can only stamp on the front of each tag as a slight impression is always left on the reverse side.
The Care Stuff
The split ring is a round coil of metal that can be opened & closed to connect your dog tag to the collar. It’s important to make sure you clip your leash directly to the collar and not to the split ring as these aren’t designed to hold when heavy force is applied (like a dog pulling on a walk).
If the split ring starts to deform then it should be replaced.
The Metal Stuff
All of our brass & copper products are cut into shape from 1.2mm thick sheets of raw material. They are then tumbled to remove burrs and create a smooth edge.
As the brass & copper is in its raw form the metal will develop a beautiful patina over time. Each tag will have slight imperfections in the metal which give individual characteristics and make no two tags the same.
The patina on copper is a strong, distinctive colour and can develop quite quickly. This patina can transfer on to light coloured collars & for these cases we recommend choosing an aluminium or brass tag.
