This is a single US-army specification, 2.0" x 1.125" stainless steel dog tag. The normal configuration is the 2-tag set but this is a single tag version, newly re-introduced for Sept 2014. Ball chains are available in lengths of 18" - 30" (46cm - 76cm). This steel dog tag can be engraved* with 5 lines of text or left polished but blank. Both our stainless dog tags and stainless ball chains are manufactured in the USA for quality, and sourced direct. It's lightweight, simple and makes an attractive personalised gift. This product is unique to 10STERLING. Note, the chain isn't polished and has a satin finish.
The tag is given a single polish in our Windsor workshop to create a shiny finish: its not quite as highly polished as our thick stainless tags (which are polished twice) but it's a near-mirror finish which looks great. The polishing also makes the tag silky smooth and it feels great next to your skin. The tag can be either plain, or personalised with up to 5 lines of text (note all letters are CAPITALISED) and 15 characters per line, incl spaces. That's 75 characters in total. This is perfect for practical contact information, a (brief) romantic message to or from loved-ones, or as a (brief) medical dog tag for listing conditions or medicines etc. If you want to include more info then the double-set, or double thick tag, has twice as much space.
The tag is 0.3mm thick in the middle and 0.6mm thick round the outside.This means it's strong but also lightweight. Worn next to the skin they'll last forever and look good for a very long time. Want heavier dog tags? Please check out our 2.0" silver dog tags (1.0mm thickness) or our double-thick stainless tags (1.2mm thickness). The chain is a break-in-the-middle style 3.2mm-thick, stainless steel ball chain with a no-nonsense military tube connector for years of trouble-free use. Note, this chain is designed to break when yanked hard to save the wearer from injury: this is a good feature in something that goes around your neck. Just make sure no one 'yanks yer chain' and it'll give years of trouble-free service. Note, the chain is not polished.

Try out your chosen words with our live tag preview. The lines you choose will be the lines on the tag on which text is placed. The Text menu below (left / centred / right) 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. When you've worked out what words you'd like enter the text in the preview. 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 single stainless steel dog tag will be made. Use the 'Text' layout selector below to tell us how you want the text on each line laid out. 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.
