The TPC tag process
As a pet owner, you know how important it is to keep your furry friend safe and easily identifiable. One of the best ways to ensure this is by using pet tags. But why settle for a plain, generic tag when you can have a custom-made, hand-stamped, CRYSTAL tag? At our workshop, we take great pride in the process we use to make each and every one of our hand-stamped pet tags.
The process begins with a hand-cut piece of metal. We use high-quality materials that are durable and long-lasting, ensuring that your pet's tag will withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. This is where the magic happens: next, we use individual character or design stamps and a hammer to stamp each part of your tag's design- no machine engraving here! Because it's all done by hand, alignment or placement will not be exact or evenly spaced, which gives each tag its own unique character and charm.
Once the stamping is complete, we round the corners and edges, then smooth them out. This ensures that your pet's tag will not scratch or irritate their skin. We then drill the ring hole and crystal settings, and remove any burs, creating a smooth surface. The crystals are individually set by hand, allowed to dry for a bit, and then the stamped design is painted.
Tags are left to dry for about 24 hours, then they're given a final clean up and polish, split rings are added, and then the tags are packaged and shipped to their new homes.
During the dry time, shipping labels are printed- this is why you may get a shipping notice a day or two before your tag is actually in possession of the USPS.
The beauty of our hand-stamped pet tags is that they are all unique, one-of-a-kind creations. No two tags will ever be exactly the same, which means that your pet will have a truly personalized tag that stands out from the rest. Our tags are also made with the utmost care and attention to detail, ensuring that they are not only beautiful but also functional and long-lasting.
In conclusion, our hand-stamped pet tags are made with a meticulous process that involves cutting, stamping, smoothing, setting, painting, polishing, and packaging. We take pride in creating each and every tag with care and attention to detail, ensuring that your pet's tag is not only functional but also a work of art.
