Hattie Rex Pet ID Tags are personalized by you and handmade by three talented metalsmiths/dog tag artists in a downtown Bozeman, Montana studio, and retail store.
These unique dog name tags are made by hand from start to finish. Starting with thick sheets of metal, including copper, brass, aluminum, nickel silver, and sterling silver. After cutting the metal pieces of each handcrafted dog tag using a disc cutter, a pancake die with a hydraulic press, or by hand using a jeweler’s saw. Any metal burrs or rough edges are removed with a belt sander. It is then sanded down first to make sure an even, flat surface is attained before the next step.
The metal pieces are then placed on a steel bench block and an antique hammer is used to meticulously hand-stamp your dog’s name and phone number (and any other information you like) on the dog tag. The hand-stamping process is what differentiates the handmade dog tag method from machined dog tags or engraved dog name tags and engraved pet tags. Every letter and number is stamped individually by hand, creating a unique, one-of-a-kind artisan dog name tag. The spacing of the letters is artistically executed, ensuring that your handmade dog tag isn’t mistaken for a robot-produced dog name tag.
Next, the pieces of our metal dog tags are soldered together using an oxygen and acetylene-fueled torch. Then it is placed through fire joining together two pieces of metal, creating a thick, sturdy piece of dog tag art. After soldering and cooling, they make their way over to the drill press where a hole is added for the split ring to go in later.
The dog tags go through a round of polishing in a tumbler. After tumbling, it is darkened to add contrast before they go through a final polishing by hand. For the traditional hanging pet tags, we attach a USA-made, heavy-duty, zinc-plated stainless steel split ring to attach to your dog’s collar. This makes your mixed metal dog id tags durable and safe to ensure that your dog tag art will last for years to come.

Why should your pet wear a tag?
Dog id tags can save your dog’s life if she ever runs away. Every year, thousands of dogs are lost from their owners. When they are found, how do they communicate their phone number and address without a dog ID tag? Wearing a tag --any tag -- is the quickest and easiest way for your dog’s finder to help your dog come home when she is lost. Whether you choose to buy a machine tag engraved dog tag, or write your dog’s phone number on her collar with a Sharpie, or treat yourself to a high-quality, handmade metal dog tag like ours, it’s imperative that your dog wears a pet name tag that includes a phone number.
While microchipping is a very common dog id method, the dog microchip requires that the finder take the dog to a veterinarian or animal shelter to scan the chip to retrieve the information. Although we all hope that anyone who finds a dog would take this step, there is no guarantee that someone would take the time to do this, or would have the time to do it quickly. Just think, every minute that it takes someone to drop everything and run your lost dog to the humane society is a minute that you are worried and scared because your dog is missing! Save yourself the heartache and make sure your dog is wearing an identification tag.
