Silver Paw tags are the most durable pet ID tag we have ever encountered. These tags are 1/8”-thick, 100% stainless steel, and deep-engraved for longevity. These tags will not corrode, discolor, disfigure, or wear at the edges.
Cheap pet ID tags typically wear out in under a year. That's because the pet's information is stamped onto aluminum. Aluminum is a very soft metal and the thin tags tend to bend and wear quickly. Sometimes the aluminum tags' information wears completely off without the owner knowing it, and the pet is in danger of going unidentified when lost.
On Silver Paw tags, the information is deep-engraved-- material is actually removed from the very hard stainless steel. Much deeper than a stamp can make in the aluminum.
The tags themselves are made at New England Castings in Hiram, ME, and the polishing and engraving is done in Brownfield, ME.
