How to revive your metal pet tags

Posted by Ashley Vondervoort on

Our ID tags are made of high quality metals. For your pets safety, they are not coated with any protective finish. The tags may develop natural patina (discolouration or dark spots) and surface scratches over time, with wear. 
Purchase our tag revival kit here. 
How to revive your tag;
Step 1:
Remove all hardware including the split ring. Replace the split ring, if it is no longer holding it's original shape. 

 Step 2:
Wash your tag with mild soap and warm water, to remove any dirt and debris. A small soft bristled brush may be used to remove dirt from the recessed areas. Dry with a paper or cloth towel.
 Step 3:  
Gently rub your tag with fine steel wool to remove the patina, oxidation and minor surface scratches.
Step 4:
Using the polishing pad, gently rub the tag to bring back the shine.
How to darken the impression;
If you notice any fading of the design or text, you can re-darken the impressions using a black Sharpie by going over the design. Leave the marker on for a few seconds, then wipe away the excess marker with paper towel  If there is still excess marker on left the tag, use the fine steel wool and the polishing pad to remove it.
Your tags can be refreshed as often as needed and ready for your next adventures!
