New for November 2015. This is like our UK Armed Forces silver disc dog tag but made from aluminium, rather than silver, which means it's lighter and less costly. It is the same 0.9mm thickness x 35mm diameter as the silver disc. While the official UK Armed Forces disc is made from steel and is surface marked, our tag is embossed and the softer aluminium we use works well for this process. Also, because it's embossed the lettering will always be readable. This tag will fit on chains up to 4.0mm thickness. Each tag and chain weighs 11.7g; for comparison a UK £1 coin weighs 9.5g. If you want a heavier tag then check out our silver disc tags or our El Dorado gilding metal disc tags, both of which are weightier.
There's room for 5 lines of lettering (note, all letters are CAPITALISED & each line is CENTRED) on each disc. Lines 1-3 can accommodate 12 characters, line 4 has space for 10 characters, and line 5 has room for 8 characters. For info, the official UK Forces dog tags usually have: surname, initials, blood group, forces number, religious preference, and RAF number (for RAF only).
As well as the letters shown, we also offer this tag with a choice of image stamps (3 per tag max, space permitting) at a small additional charge. See picture below for available images. Choose from palm tree; crescent moon; yin & yang; star of David; football; angry skull; skull & crossbones; smiley face; left or right foot; dolphin; plain heart; linked hearts; twirly heart; Christ's cross; or anchor. If you want one stamp then leave the bottom line blank. If you want 2 stamps then also leave the bottom line blank and we'll put both there. If you want 3 stamps then leave the top line blank (or use only a short 5-letter word) and leave the bottom line blank. Please type your stamp request (the letter denoting the stamp you want) in the Comments box which you'll see during checkout. We'll email you if your request cannot be fitted in.
