This is a pair of conventional US-army 2.0" stainless steel dog tags, joined back-to-back to make a man's double-thick tag (1.2mm thick) rather than the single tags used by the US military. Each side can be engraved* with up to 5 lines of text. Each side of this thick tag, plus the stainless split ring, is professionally polished by us in a 2-stage process to make it gleam and feel super-smooth: you can literally see your face in it. A polished stainless steel split ring is used to keep the tag lying flat against the wearer's chest. Using a split ring means it's less costly to make and it also means the ring can be detached. 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.
Each side of the tag can be either plain or personalised with up to 5 lines of text (note all letters are CAPITALISED) with 15 characters per line, incl spaces. This is a perfect tag for practical contact information, romantic messages to or from loved-ones or a place to record details of the important things in your life, including medical information because there's 5 lines of text on each side of the tag giving 150 characters in total.
Included is a 3.2mm break-in-the-middle style stainless steel ball chain. The standard length of the main chain is 20" but other chain lengths from 18" - 30" (46cm - 76cm) are available - see below. The tags are precisely and permanently joined using our own secure and durable method. The double-thick tag measures 2.0" x 1.25" (50mm x 28mm) and is 1.2mm thick. With the chain it weighs 21.3g in total: for comparison, the weight of a £1 coin is 9.5g. Note, the chain is not polished.
This product is delivered in a free protective plastic pouch. Other packaging options are available including a 10STERLING-branded black-fabric pouch. If you'd like a gift-box (no fabric pouch) please choose from either a black & silver gift box or, to really impress, a luxury high-gloss wooden gift box. See pictures opposite.

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) tells us only how you want the text laid out (horizontal alignment) 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 double-thick tag please leave this blank. Note, the tag preview only works for one side of this double-thick tag. However, you can use this to see how it looks with the text for both sides. When you've worked out what text you'd like, enter the text for one side of the tag in the top part and the text for the other side of the tag in the lower part that says "Lower Tag / Side 2". Note, the pendant can be worn with either side facing out. All letters are CAPITALISED, LIKE THIS. Lower-case letters are not available.
When you're ready to purchase, click "Add to Basket". The letters & symbols you've typed will be added to your order & your 2.0" stainless steel thick dog tag will be made. Be sure to use the 'Text' layout selector below to tell us how you want the words aligned on both sides of this tag: please note, 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. If you require a special layout, e.g. with unusual spacings in some of the lines, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll tell you what's possible.
