Tiger Lilies Pet Tag
What Size Should I Get?
I generally recommend my Extra Large ~35mm tags for the biggest of dogs, my Large ~32mm tags for medium to large sized dogs; my Medium ~29mm tags for small to medium sized dogs, my Small ~25mm tags for small dogs, puppies, and even cats, and my Extra Small ~22mm tags for the smallest of dogs and cats/kittens. Of course, it all comes down to preference.
For reference - silver aluminium is the lightest weight option, and is the best fit for Extra Small tags, rose gold copper is my next lightest option, then gold brass, leaving silver pewter to be the heaviest option, and best for the bigger pets with bigger tags. Silver pewter also is the most rustic and organic shaped tag, as it is formed by melting and pouring liquid pewter into their round shapes.
Please note, my designs are standardly made for Large tags, so some details may be lost in the Medium, Small, and details will definitely be lost in Extra Small tags.
What's Included and How Will My Tag Be Shipped?
I include a matching extra strong jump ring and matching extra strong split ring with each tag purchase. This means that as long as you do not attach your pet's leash to their new Little Striped Fox tag, the tag will stay secure to your pet's collar under normal use. I choose to use a jump ring and split ring to allow your fur-riend's new tag to face forward once attached to their collar, and to reduce the likelihood of the tag snagging on something. For choking and other safety reasons, all my tags will release when under stress or abnormal use, and no refunds can be made for lost tags due to this.
You can also choose "Yes please!" to the product option "Would you like to add a matching clasp?" to switch out your included matching split ring for a matching clasp/clip. Clasps are just as strong (maybe stronger) than keyrings, and are easier on the fingers to put on and take off of collars/harnesses. I also carry black and rainbow/iridescent of most split rings and clasps, so feel free to ask if I have a colour!
Your tag will be standardly shipped through Royal Mail, already assembled and ready to go. The base shipping method within the UK includes tracking. However, outside the UK, standard shipping is untracked, and can take some time given the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
I would highly recommend upgrading your shipping if you do not want to wait upwards of a month or more in some cases. Please see below for more information on shipping and COVID-19.
My current processing time to make your tag is currently about 5 to 11 business days.
Will My Tag Really Look Like the Pictures?
The images included showcase the standard layout I will use when designing your tag. However, the placement, spacing, and indentation will be slightly different than what is shown, simply because your tag is handmade with love. And of course, clasp, hammered edge, and colour, etc., will all depend on what you choose in the drop down!
And as noted above, my designs are standardly made for Large tags, so details can be lost in the Medium, Small, and Extra Small tags.
Little Striped Fox tags are designed for real life. I know your new tags will be in the elements, getting bumped and scraped. That's why my tags are made from solid and strong metal. Thus, no care is necessary to upkeep your tag's integrity.
However, Gold and Rose Gold tags will develop a non-harmful patina with time. If you ever want to give your tags a shine up, you can clean your tags with a tomato sauce, like ketchup (I KNOW!). You can also add on a polishing square to your order, which will remove patina and keep your new tags shiny for longer.
If your tags' impressions ever get faded, you can easily touch them up with just some rubbing alcohol, an old cotton rag (or paper towel), and a permanent marker. First, completely colour in all the impressions with your marker. Then, dip your cotton cloth into the rubbing alcohol until lightly saturated. Finally, gently rub the cloth in a circular motion on your tag to remove the excess marker. Repeat as needed until only the impressions have ink.
More Information on Shipping and COVID-19 Update
Due to COVID-19, shipping times have greatly increased. I highly recommend selecting the tracked shipping option at check out if you live outside the UK to receive your tags in a reasonable amount of time.
Unfortunately, if you do not purchase tracked shipping, there is nothing I can do for you once your tags have been dropped off at the post office. This includes lost items in the mail. So please do consider upgrading to tracked shipping so that you can follow your tags' journey, and receive them in a timely manner.
There is no guarantee for any shipping times, as that is unfortunately out of my hands. However, on average, shipping times for non-upgraded mail has been as follows:
UK: 2 to 10 days
Europe: 3 to 15 days
Rest of World: 6 to 20 days
Again, delivery can take a different amount of time, and unfortunately even if shipping has been upgraded, once the package has left my hands, the time it takes to get to you is out of my control.
Thank you so much,
