Personalised shiny stainless steel dog tags
US Military dog tags in polished stainless steel.
In contrast to regular issue US military which are matte, this tag set feature a shiny polished finish.
The shiny finish makes them really eye catching with the reflections in the embossing giving the text greater contrast and texture.
Aside from the finish, this set conforms to the MIL spec and both chains and tags are sourced from US Government GSA vendors and manufactured in the USA so our usual high quality is maintained.
If desired, the tags can be polished to a literally mirror like finish using metal polish like autosol.
Made from shiny finish 304 grade stainless steel the dog tags and chains are non allergic and extremely durable and hard wearing.
US military embossing format
You can choose whatever message you like for the embossing on your tags but many people like to follow the US Marine Corps format or something close to it for an authentic look.
The tags shown in the images follow the correct format for a member of the US Marines Corps.
The general format for a standard military tag is as follows:
Line 1: Surname
Line 2: First name, initials, Blood group
Line 3: Social security number / DOD ID
Line 4: Unit (eg. USMC for US marine corps), gas mask size (US, S, M, L, XL)
Line 5: Religious preference (or "NO PREFERENCE")
Personalise your tags
Of course you aren't limited to steel tags and chains or black silencers. By using our tag builder you can personalise your own bespoke dog tag set with your own choice of message plus a wide range of silencer and chain colour options.
Medical / ICE
Many customers also choose dog tags to keep important medical or emergency contact details to hand. If that's what you need then it's worth looking at our iceQR option that includes a unique QR code attached to the back of the tags on a permanent label. By scanning the QR code with a smartphone or tablet first responders can access up to 1500 characters of text and 10 images. Simply tick the iceQR option in our tag builder to add the iceQR feature.
If you're giving the tags as a gift then you might want to consider our custom steel presentation case which you can add by ticking the option in the tag builder or at checkout.
