Cruddy Tags 2011

by Jen on July 12, 2011

Once upon a time we got an email from someone who complained  that they bought one of our tags and that the ID info had worn off  & was unreadable.  We requested that the tag be returned so that we could examine it for defects since our tags don’t really “wear out” or become illegible.

When we received the tag, we noticed right away that the customer was right about one thing -


the tag certainly was illegible (black spot added to obscure remaining ID info) -

But it wasn’t made by Fetching Tags.

Here’s the replacement that we made.


And, No, you can’t send in your cruddy tags for a free replacement from us, but you can WIN one!

I never enter contests where you have to do more than fill out your name & e-mail ;-) Just laziness, nothing against the more sophisticated competitions. But I have to find Zoe’s first tag & get a picture. It is on one of Luke’s old collars & I just crossed out “Luke” with a sharpie and wrote “Zoe.” If she only knew how unfashionable she was!
