- What is a Dogtag?
A dog tag is the informal name for the identification tags worn by military personnel, because of their resemblance to actual dog tags. The tag is primarily used for the identification of dead and wounded along with providing essential basic medical information for the treatment of the latter such as blood type and history of inoculations. In the event the member has a medical condition that requires special attention, an additional red tag with the pertinent information is issued and worn with the dog tags. Wearing of the tag is required at all times by soldiers in the field. It may contain two copies of the information and be designed to break easily into two pieces. This allows half the tag to be collected for notification while the other half remains with the body when battle conditions do not allow the casualty to be immediately recovered. Alternatively, two identical tags are issued. One is worn on a long chain around the neck; the second on a much smaller chain attached to the first chain. In the event the wearer is killed the second tag is collected and the first remains with the body. cited from Wikipedia article on Dogtags
Dog tags have recently found their way into youth fashion by way of military chic. Originally worn as a part of a military uniform by youths wishing to present a tough or militaristic image, dog tags have since seeped out into wider fashion circles. They may be inscribed with a person's details, their beliefs or tastes, a favorite quote, or may bear the name or logo of a band or performer.

- What's the difference between Embossed and Debossed?
Military issue dogtags are imprinted with one of two types of letters: Embossed or Debossed.
The United States Military currently accepts either type of text imprinting since they still use both types of machines, however the modern embossed type is far more common and is what mydogtag.com recommends for most people since it is easier to read and we offer a larger selection of characters than the debossed type. We allow you to choose either type of printing for any style of dogtag, both of which are made with the same computer controlled machine.
Embossing is the method where the metal is deformed so that letters are raised ABOVE the surface of the dogtag, similar to the way a name and number looks on a plastic credit card.
This is the modern military standard and is the type that most people prefer.
This was the most common type issued durring WWII, Korea and Vietnam era wars and was issued on a notched dogtag with the rolled edge down (we call this our classic WWII style dogtag). We recommend choosing the debossed type for the classic style dogtag to be consistent with the era.
We are one of the very few dogtag manufacturers to make our debossed dogtags with a modern computer controlled debossing machine to ensure accuraccy and uniformity. (Most other suppliers use WWII era human operated Addressograph machines).
- What Chain sizes and fasteners are available?
You should select whichever fastener is most appropriate for your purpose. You can choose a different fastener for each tag so you are free to mix and match. All of our ballchains are made in the USA
For wearing on your neck, you should opt for the traditional military style 30" inch long chain and the 4" short chain which attaches your second tag to the long chain. If a chain is too long for your liking, you can easily shorten it using wire cutters.
Our military grade stainless-steel chains are made in the USA and designed to last a lifetime!
Alternatively you could consider selecting 2 neck chains...keep 1 tag for yourself and give the other to a friend!
To open a ball chain connector, simply pinch the chains on both sides of the connector between your thumb and forefinger as in this photo. Then just bring your fingers together and the balls will easily snap out.
These chains are standard military-spec measuring:
Length: 760mm or 30" Bead Diameter: 2.4mm or 3/32" Weight: 7.4g
Similar to above except made of solid brass. These are a good match for our brass dogtags.
Please note that they may patinate (oxidize) over time
Our brass chains are made in the USA
Our 30" and 4" black ball-chains are made of stainless steel and coated with a tough black epoxy. These will not rust out and are a good match for our black dogtags.
Our black chains are made in the USA
Choose the tough braided wire with screw-lock to attach the tag to luggage or other items.
- Stainless steel
- Length: 6"
Also known as speedy or rapid (nickel plated) rivets, they are ideal for attaching our 2-hole dogtag to leather or fabric wristbands, dog collars, tack, belts, straps, etc. Easily installed at home using a hammer or pliers to compress the rivets together. This product is sold as 2 sets of 2 pairs.
Snap-hooks are ideal for attaching the dogtags to items which require them to be easily removed. Works great for zipper-pulls!
- Nickle-plated or brass plated steel
- Length: 1"
- Diameter of large curve: 3/8"
- Diameter of small curve: 1/4"
S-hooks are ideal for attaching the tag to a pet collar as they are a robust way for affixing the tag. Pliers are required to crimp the ends of the S-hook thereby closing the loops.
- Nickle-plated steel
- Length: 3/4" Length (Top of S to bottom of S)
- Diameter of wire: .072"
Split Key rings are ideal for using your tags as a keychain or for attaching to a pet collar.
We recommend putting your email address on your keychain tags as this is the safest and easiest way for a stranger to contact you if your keys are ever lost.
If you have a small pet with a collar 3/8 inch or less in width, use a ring and put it onto the collar as follows: First, put the ring on the tag. Next, thread the collar THROUGH the ring instead of attaching the ring onto the collar hardware. This method eliminates the "dangling" look, which is particularly obnoxious on small pets. As well, the tag will face more directly outward. On larger pets, this method isn't going to apply and the tag attachment (S-hook or Keyring) method should be a matter of personal preference.
- Nickle-plated or brass-plated steel
- Outer Diameter: 1"
- What are silencers for?
Silencers are the elastic pieces of silicone rubber that fit around the edge of your dogtags. Their military purpose is to prevent the tags from "clinking" together thereby limiting noise in the field, but they also look pretty cool!
We offer a wide choice of colours and patterns to suit your individual preference, and you can preview what they will look on your tags with the tag previewer!. Sometimes the silencer may cover a tiny portion of the text on your tag, however it can usually be manipulated so that all of the text is visible.
Installing your silencers:
- Slip the dog tag into the inner channel of the silencer.
- Line up the hole in the dog tag with the small hole in the silencer.
- Stretch the silencer around the tag.
Please note that the silicone rubber will eventually wear down over time and may tear, this is especially likely when used with pets like dogs as they are exposed to much more friction due to pet's activities. Furthermore, your pet may try to chew off the silencer and eat it which may be a health hazard. We recommend that you not select a silencer if this to be used on a pet.
- Why do some dogtags not come with silencers?
Silencers are included for free with our mil-spec and most standard shaped dogtags, however they are not included in the following situations:
- Non Standard shape or size... because silencers are only available in one size for standard shaped dogtags
- Notched dogtags... because notched dogtags are traditonally not worn with silencers. A silencer would cover the notch, thus defeating the aesthetic purpose of a notched tag.
- 2-Hole dogtags... because a silencer would cover one of the holes, thus defeating the purpose of a 2 hole dogtag.
Nevertheless, if you still require a silencer for one of these forementioned tags, you may still purchase is seperetaly from the silencer accessories page (it is not included in the cost of the dogtag set).
- What can I put on my Dogtags?
You can have any text you want stamped on the dog tags...it's entirely up to you and it will not be censored by us. Many choose to have their tags stamped in various miltary styles with last name, first name, social security number, blood type, and religion.
- What characters are allowed on my tag?
- UPPERCASE Letters: A thru Z
- Numbers: 0 thru 9
- Special Characters:
- - (minus sign)
- + (plus sign)
- = (equal sign)
- & (Ampersand)
- " (Double Quote / seconds)
- ' (Single Quote / minutes)
- ° (degree symbol)
- . (Period)
- , (Comma)
- : (Colon)
- * (Asterisk)
- # (Hash/Pound/Octothorp)
- ? (Question Mark)
- $ (Dollar Sign)
- ! (Exclamation Mark)
- ( (left parenthesis)
- ) (right parenthesis)
- / (Forward Slash)
- \ (Back Slash)
- Special Symbols:
- @ (at sign - for email addresses)
- © (copyright)
- ★ (military star)
- ✝ (crucifix)
- ♥ (heart)
- ♣ (maple leaf - for Canada) note: represented by ascii symbol ♣
Our extensive selection of special characters is NOT offered at most other dogtag manufacturers! The @ sign allows you to put an email address on your dogtags, the brackets can be used to make smileys :-) and the © symbol allows you to copyright unique phrases on your dogtags! The star ★, cross ✝,heart ♥, and maple leaf ♣ symbols are custom made and are not available anywhere else! Use your imagination!
- How can I fit more characters on my Dogtag?
Our various dogtag styles allow for different number of CPL (characters per line) depending on the size, shape, and special characteristics of the dogtag.
Additionally we do offer two CPL format options for our regular sized dogtags depending on your requirements: STANDARD and MAXIMUM:
Our STANDARD format dogtags consist of 5 lines with the following number of characters per line:
This allows for a silencer to be installed on a dogtag without covering any of your text so that it is readable. This is our default format and we recommend using it unless you absolutely need more space.
If you require a little more space (due to a long name for example), choosing the MAXIMUM format option will give you one more character per line. In order to make space for one more character the entire line is shifted a few milimeters left towards the hole, however this is at the expense of edge characters being covered up and partially or completely hidden by the silencer (as per the image shown here):
In this instance we recommend that you do not order a silencer since it would make your dogtag harder to read.
- Are these real military dog tags?
Yes - these are the real thing - shiny stainless steel, rolled edge, embossed using the same machinery and font for current United States military spec dog tags.
We also engrave Canadian Forces military style dogtags which are designed to be broken in two, see here for the official specifications.
- Why are two tags issued in each set? Can I order only one?
For traditional military purposes, two dog tags are issued to each soldier. In the unfortunate case that he is killed in combat, one tag would stay with the body (sometimes attached to the toe using the short chain) and the other tag would go with a scout and eventually to the next of kin.
To keep things simple, we only sell our tags in sets of two, and as you can put different text on each tag, we're sure you can find a use for both of them!
- How do you make your dogtags?
We purchase the blank tags from the same manufacturer who supplies the United States military. The embossing data which you submit online is fed directly into our ultra-high precision computer controlled embossing machine, avoiding the possibility of human input error. Watch a movie of it in action!
- Are dogtags suitable for small children?
As the tag sets contain small parts, they pose a choking hazard and as such are NOT suitable for small children, infants, or toddlers. However they do make great souvenirs for the birth of military babies!

PayPal only provides us with your address to facilitate shipping, and your order details for your dogtags and other shopping cart items.
After your order is shipped we retain your shipping address information in case your package needs to be resent, however we NEVER provide or sell this information to a 3rd party.
The information you put on your dogtags is kept fully confidential and passes straight from your order file on our computer system to the automated embossing machine, it is never re-typed by a human. Although our staff may discretely review your dogtags to ensure accuracy and quality control, our policy of non-censorship ensures that whatever you put remains none of our business! However you do assume the risk and liability in the unlikely event that your order is lost or stolen in the mail in which case the information on your dogtags may be compromised.

Dogtags on Chains
For advanced webmasters we suggest that you preconfigure a custom dogtag generator template for your website users so that when they click on our banner they will see dogtags on our site that you have already created for them! You can even set a discount promo code (if you pre-arrange it with us first).
To configure this, simple create your dogtags on the dogtag generator page and then click the "Show URL to dogtag design" button . You can then copy and paste this code into your own website.
Please note that if you are using an image created by the dogtag generator on a commercial website it must be hyperlinked back to www.mydogtag.com.
