Tags From Avalon Crafts

Etsy is the most amazing place on the internets.

When momma redid our tags we went online in search of a "non-jingling" or non metal tag.  For when we get new rabies from the new vet clinic (which will not have our names/phone number) going forward.  We didn't want to be replacing tags often due to metal on metal wear or risk having them unreadable in the even (knock on wood) we got lost.  We found nothing in rubber/silicone that was the right size or price for us.  Then we found leather tags.  Again we had a hard time finding any in the US that were a good size for petite puppers and a good price.  So we broadened our search to include overseas sellers.

And found Avalon Cafts page, an etsy store based in Singapore.  Oh my dog!  Leather tags, waterproof coating, perfect price, small shipping fee, and designs that are out of this world!  We searched and searched and finally found a design that was just right for us.   Once ordered Avalon Crafts pupdated their IG while working on our tags.  Which is just too cool that we got to see our tags in process.

Our tags were even featured in an etsy listing.  :)


Literally a week after shipping and 2 weeks after ordering they arrived.

All collared up they look even more fantastic.

The rainbow design on the gray base makes them coordinate perfectly with our current tags and collars.

On the back we asked the seller to choose a cute phone design and they blew us away! A phone with a paw print text bubble.  Seriously adorable!!!!

We did catch them on sale and have a paypal coupon but even without these tags range from $7-$15 depending on size, design and double sided personalization.  Which is less than the engraving machines at your local pet store.

We chose the 3cm size because we wanted a larger image and name on the front.  However for smaller pups they have tags as tiny as 1cm.  For those curious 3cm is the average size for most homeagain/rabies/city license tags.  Only ever so slightly thicker.  They fit in line quite nicely.  Also they are very lightweight.  We couldn't even really feel a difference in collar weight with it on.

From a 14 lb Poodle....

...to an 8 lb Chinese Crested they are a perfect fit.

We both highly recommend Avalon Crafts for your id tag needs.  The seller is FANTASTIC with communication, has AMAZING art skills, and a FINE attention to detail.

  1. Those are beautiful! Did you know that in 7 years Phod has only had his metal tag replaced once? It was because his name rubbed off? Lady likes us to have metal tags so she can hear us.

  2. Cute tags! We've always had metal tags, and Momma only ever replaced them because we moved, not because anything wore off. Phew! I like to be safe.
