This is a single, US-army specification 2.0" x 1.125" man's stainless steel tag for a briefcase, man-bag, aeroplane trolley with an 8.0" (20cm) detachable stainless steel chain to turn it a smart, useful and an attractive personalised gift. There's room for 5 lines of engraved* text. This is designed for attaching to bags that will travel in the passenger cabin and it isn't designed to be checked-in as hold luggage or to go through airport systems where it could get pulled off by a conveyor belt. It's designed to break if pulled hard so it's best for briefcases, manbags or cabin luggage trolleys. Both our stainless dog tags and stainless ball chains are manufactured in the USA for quality and sourced direct. This product is unique to 10STERLING. Note, the chain isn't polished and has a satin finish.
The tag is 0.3mm thick in the middle and 0.6mm thick round the outside. Note, this means it's strong but relatively thin. This is because it's not possible to emboss a thicker stainless steel dog tag: note though that it's the same thickness as the US military dog tags. At 4.3g (8.5g including chain) it's also lightweight (a £1 coin weighs 9.5g) but it will last forever and look good for a long time as long as the user doesn't deliberately try to bend it. If you want heavier a heavier luggage tag then please check out our 2.0" sterling silver dog tag keyring (1.0mm thick) or our double-thick stainless dog tag keyring (1.2mm thick), both in the keyring category which can be made as a luggage tag - please email us for details.
The dog tag in this luggage tag is given a single polish in our Windsor workshop to create a shiny finish: its not quite as highly polished as our thick tags (which are polished twice) but it's a near-mirror finish which looks great. The polishing also makes the steel dog tag feel silky smooth to the touch. The luggage dog tag can be plain or personalised (on one side) with up to 5 lines of text (note, all letters are CAPITALISED) with 15 characters per line, incl spaces.

Try out your chosen words with our live tag preview. The lines you choose will be the lines on the tag where text is placed. The Text menu below (left / centred / right) only tells us only how you want the text laid out (horizontally) on the lines you've chosen; it does NOT alter the vertical position of the lines which means that the lines on which you place text above will be the lines on which text appears on the tag: if you've put text on Line 2 above then it'll appear on Line 2 of the tag. For a plain polished unmarked tag leave this blank. When you're happy with how it looks & you're ready to purchase, click "Add to Basket". The letters & symbols you've typed will be added to your order & your stainless steel dog tag keyring will be made.
Be sure to use the 'Text' layout selector below to tell us how you want the words aligned on your steel dog tag: selecting this won't change the appearance of what you type into the live tag preview but it is captured for inclusion in your order. If you don't choose a text position we'll arrange the words in the way that looks best. All letters are capitalised, LIKE THIS. Lower-case letters are not available. If you require a special layout, e.g. with unusual spacings in some of the lines, please email us at email@example.com and we'll tell you what's possible.
