For what reason did you decide to purchase a tag for your pet? For many, the purpose is mostly functional. That is, the purpose of the pet tag is to provide readable contact information to someone who finds the pet if it wanders away from home. Now, while most people will be aware of the functionality of the pet tags, they may not be aware of the other benefits found with the tag. For example, it is possible to make a “pet fashion statement” with unique ID pet tags.
Ok, the notion that one can make a fashion statement may be a somewhat illusory description of unique pet ID tags. After all, pets have no one they need to impress! But, it certainly can be a good thing when a lovable dog or cat is treated with unique pet tags that help show a little additional affection towards the animal.
For example, you could easily attach a generic pet ID tag to your dog or cat’s collar. This would be functional but it would not be very assuming. But, purchasing a heart shaped unique pet ID tag would be a much better idea. Such an ID tag will add a nice touch whereas mere function might come off as purely antiseptic. It also will have the benefit of displaying your affection for your pet.
There are also functional aspects with unique pet ID tags. For example, most people assume that pet ID tags that come in the shape of a bone are intended to compliment the fact that the pet is a canine. In many respects, this would be an accurate assessment and there is more to it than that. Namely, a bone is shaped like a rectangle. That means it is possible to fit a great deal of contact information such as phone number, address, email, etc on the ID tag. This way, if someone needs to contact you regarding the pet, no contact information is left out of the equation.
And, best of all, this functional information is masked within the shape of the bone making it much more visually appealing.
Of course, it is not impossible to engrave both sides of a pet ID tag. However, most people will not immediately look to the rear of the tag for information. This is why it is suggested that something along the lines of ‘see reverse’ is engraved on the front of the tag.
There is a great variety to the types of tags that are available. That means no matter what type of aesthetic you are looking for in your unique pet ID tags, you can find it if you look. The manufacturers of these tags understand the need for variety and that is why they produce so much of it.
It is also important to point out that not all engraving needs to be functional. Sometimes, a nice saying or a loving mention could be placed on the tag. Really, when it comes to unique pet ID tags you are only limited by your own creativity and imagination.
