FAQs About Waggy Pooch Pet Tag, Handmade Dog Collars & Leashes
What is the difference between hand stamping and engraving?
Engraving is usually done by a machine and gives a very uniform look. Hand-stamping on metal is a craft and art! Each letter and design is carefully stamped on the tag one by one. The metal stamps we use are sourced from around the globe and are very high quality.
The stamping by hand gives the piece a unique and quirky look. Each pet tag is a one of a kind and can vary from the shown image. Due to the hand making process, the writing, depth, and designs can vary slightly making the piece you receive totally unique!
How should I care for my dog tag?
Metals like copper, and brass naturally tarnish and get a patina over time. This is a normal occurrence that can't be prevented! If you don't like that look and want the tag to be shiny a little bit of simple maintenance will keep your dog tag looking like new!
★ Use a mild soap and water together with fine steel wool to clean off the natural patina. A metal polishing cloth can also do the trick.
★ Don't use harsh chemicals or cleaners on the tag.
★ If the letters, designs, or numbers have faded you can use a black permanent marker like a Sharpie to touch them up. Wipe off the excess with fine steel wool or a polishing pad.
★ Exposing the tags to salt/chlorinated water and harsh chemicals will tarnish the metal
