New for November 2015. This is like our UK Armed Forces silver disc dog tag set but made from aluminium, rather than silver, which means it's lighter and less costly. Both tags are the same 0.9mm thickness x 35mm in diameter as the silver discs. While the official UK Armed Forces discs are made from steel and are surface marked, ours are 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 double tag and chain set weighs 16.4g; for comparison a UK £1 coin weighs 9.5g so it's a bit less than 2 x £1 coins in weight. 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 tag discs 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 one (or both) tags with a choice of image stamps (3 per tag max, space permitting) for 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 on a tag 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 include only a short 4-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.

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. Note, the tag preview only works for the upper tag in a double-set. However, you can use this to see how it looks with the text for both tags. When you've worked out what text you'd like, enter the text for the upper-tag in the top part and the text for the lower-tag in the part that says "Lower Tag / Side 2". The "Side 2" refers to our double-thick stainless tags only and isn't relevant here. ALL letters will be capitalised, LIKE THIS: lower-case letters are not available.
When you're happy with how it looks click "Add to Basket". The letters & symbols you've typed will be added to your order & your UK Armed Forces aluminium disc dog tag set will be made. All text will be centralised.
