There are a lot of steps to making your pet’s BLING tag, metal is cut, pounded, stamped, soldered, tumbled, polished, sealed with a clear coating to protect the metal from natural tarnishing. Each tag is handmade by me once the order is placed. I try to get orders shipped within +/- 14 days. Requested custom orders may take longer.
All tags come with two split rings, so it’s ready to hang on your pet’s collar.

What can I have engraved on the back of my tag?
Small size tags 7/8, 1, and 1 1/8 inch tags only have room for one phone number.
Medium/Large tags 1 ¼ and 1 3/8 inch can have two phone numbers as long as the pet’s name is on the front of the tag. If the name is on the back you will have room for name and one phone number.
Large and Extra Large tags have room for two phone numbers and MAYBE a short street address.
I feel that it is important to have the information clear and easy to read in case your pet is lost. Putting a lot of information on the back makes the font (lettering) smaller and harder to read. So it is best to decide what is REALLY important so you are contacted quickly.

Most orders are shipped in about 14 days +/- a day or two. Exception to this is holidays, custom requested orders and large orders may take longer.
You will receive a shipping notice with tracking once I have shipped your order.
Once my tag is shipped how long will it take for me to receive?
I ship USPS First Class through the United States Postal Service with tracking. IslandTop Custom Tags does not guarantee shipping of any kind.

International and Canada - Unfortunately orders from outside the US do not carry tracking numbers. Shipping outside of the US is therefore at the risk of the customer. IslandTop Custom Tags does not guarantee shipping delivery or times. NOTE: SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF THE US is taking upwards of 3 weeks (more typical is 2 weeks) due to some extra security border/customs.
What does the sealer do that you use on your tags?
All metal will scratch and tarnish. I put on a clear coat to seal the metal and slow down the natural tarnishing of metal. Without the clear coating the metal (especially brass and copper) will tarnish in a matter of days. The clear coating does help but it is not armor and will scratch and wear off depending on how active your dog is, if you have other tags on your pet's collar or just from everyday wear. I wish there was something out there that would protect my tags forever.
How do I keep my tag from scratching so quickly?
I’ve had people tell me that their tag still looks great after a year or more and other’s will start to show some wear after a few months. It is best to not to hang a lot of tags on your dog’s collar, they will rub together and will scratch each other. Metal rubbing metal is never good. Also it is best not to hang the tag low on the collar to avoid dragging and getting caught on something.
How can I clean my tag if it is showing some tarnishing?
Wash with soap and water and dry. Than you can use any silver polish cleaner. You can also send the tag back to me and I will polish it and reseal it. At no cost to you other than shipping.
