Engraving tags for dogs play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and identification of our beloved four-legged friends. These small, personalized tags serve as a vital form of communication, carrying essential information that can assist in reuniting lost dogs with their owners. In this article, we will explore the significance of engraving tags, the key details they should contain, and the benefits they offer to both dogs and their owners.
Founddream offers engravable blanks to thousands of engraving businesses worldwide. We have the unique ability to manufacture these blanks in our facility using modern high-speed presses and highly skilled personnel. This gives us a big advantage in manufacturing: It allows us to compete even with overseas suppliers, while producing superior quality products.
We began manufacturing blank pet tags back in 1988. Since then, we’ve added many more items to our product line that an individual or company can purchase from us, and then engrave for in-house use or resell to their customers.
Over the years, we’ve made millions of engraving blanks for our customers, but we do engraving as well! Being engravers gives us an advantage when it comes to making the best blanks because we know what it takes to get good engraving results from each material we use to make them.

What Type of Engraving Machine Do We Recommend?
In recent years the engraving industry has switched from the rotary engraving machines of old to much more efficient laser engraving machines or as they are also called laser etching machines.
Founddream recommends to anyone starting a new engraving business that you purchase a laser engraving machine. Laser engravers are all computer-controlled and take advantage of software programs that allow for much higher efficiencies than did the old manual rotary engraving machines.
Even the newer computer controlled rotary engraving machines cannot compare to a laser engraver, because they still have to engrave one character at a time, making them very slow by comparison.
Laser engraving machines have a few key advantages over rotary engravers. Lasers engravers are what we would call non-contact engravers. The parts being engraved do not have to be held in a vise or fastened to the engraving table, like they do when using a rotary engraving machine.
This allows laser engraving machines to be loaded with an entire tray of parts, that are all engraved as a unit, rather than engraving only one at a time. That’s a huge difference in efficiency!
Laser engraving machines are also much easier to learn how to operate and are far more capable of engraving intricate logos and barcodes that your customers may need.
We’ve been using Epilog laser engraving machines for many years and have been very happy with them. They’ve been reliable and provide excellent engraving results. We use their C02 laser machines for cutting and engraving plastics and engraving anodized aluminum, and we use their fiber lasers to engrave brass and stainless steel.
We recommend purchasing an American made laser engraving system with a good reputation. There are many out there for your consideration. We don’t recommend an inexpensive imported machine because we’ve heard of too many instances where people were disappointed with the performance and reliability of these machines.
Engraving tags serve as a primary means of identification for dogs, especially when they are away from their homes. In case a dog gets lost or wanders off, a tag with engraved information becomes a valuable tool for helping others identify the dog and contact its owner promptly. The engraved details typically include the dog’s name, owner’s contact number, and sometimes even the address. Such information allows concerned individuals or authorities to reach out to the owner and facilitate the reunion.
Moreover, engraving tags for dogs are essential for ensuring their safety. They often include messages such as “I’m microchipped” or “I have medical conditions” to provide vital information to anyone who finds the dog. This helps in managing emergency situations or providing necessary medical care promptly.
