Are you unimpressed by the same old tacky selection of engraved ID tags available at your local pet store? We certainly are. That's why we've developed Pawshhtag pet ID tags!
Modern, minimalist designs, and superior functionality.
Not only are Pawsshtags brighter and more colorful than typical metal tags, they perform better too! Our ID tags are quiet, extremely tough and durable, and can't rust or corrode!
Finally, dog and cat ID tags that look and perform how they should in the 21st century. We are initially offering four unique styles of Pawshhtag ID tags, as well as a dedicated contact info tag.
Each of our 4 ID tag styles are available in 8 colors - including glow-in-the-dark!
Every tag comes with a high quality stainless steel split key ring to securely attach your Pawshhtag to your pets collar.
Names can be printed up to 9 characters in length.
We think it's extremely important to do what we can to help support those around us that spend every day trying to make the world a better place for the ever-growing number of neglected pets.
We are founding the Pawshhtag product line with the promise to donate 10% of gross sales to any number of community non-profit organizations. This includes 10% of all pledges received in this Kickstarter campaign, as well as any future Pawshhtag sales through the lifetime of the product.
We would like your help in deciding who should get the first installment of Pawshhtag Community Contribution money. Please post in the comments with your suggestions for organizations you think we should donate to first!
Pawshhtag Pet ID Tags are a safe choice for you and your pet in many ways. They are free from harsh chemicals, such as BPAs and phthalates. They are extremely lightweight, don't make noise, and include important contact information. These qualities ensure comfort for your pet, and piece of mind for you.
Every year in North America, a staggering number of household pets become lost. Even if your pet is micro-chipped, having a phone number attached to their collar will always be the quickest and easiest way for anyone that comes across your lost pet to contact you. This is why we include personalized contact information with each of our tags.
- ID TAGS: 100% thermoplastic polyurethane - BPA and phthalate free!
- KEY RINGS: 304 stainless steel - 19 mm (3/4 in) diameter
- All dimensions are approximate.

- Infotag can accommodate two 10-digit phone numbers.
- Special requests will be considered on a case by case basis.
The pledge rewards are arranged into three categories driven by planned times of delivery. We've calculated the approximate number of tags that we can reliably produce in these time frames based on the volume of pledges we receive. We have been conservative with all our estimations so as to give the highest probability of achieving these planned delivery dates.
All prices below are shown in $CAD.
Most of the customized pet ID tags that you have come across until now use laser or mechanical engraving. This allows manufacturers to mass produce their generic designs, then the customization usually takes place at the time of purchase.
We are taking a different approach, and utilizing 3D printing to produce all Pawshhtag Pet ID Tags.
We believe that this is an application where manufacturing via 3D printing is not only viable, but is actually ideal as it allows for unlimited creative potential. Our products have gone from concept to production as follows:
1. Initial CAD modelling
2. Prototyping and Iterating CAD designs
Each Pawshhtag style went through several versions before a final design was chosen. This allowed us to ensure the highest quality final product in both appearance and functionality.
Our unique designs require a little bit of tweaking every time we introduce a new pet name and contact information. This is the last step before production.
4. Final Printing
Routine printer maintenance and dialed in settings allow us to consistently produce beautiful ID tags.
You may be wondering why we decided Kickstarter is the perfect platform to launch the Pawshhtag project.
Apart from a proven track record of providing creators the ability to showcase their products to amazing, forward-thinking consumers, Kickstarter will enable us to scale our operation as efficiently as possible - and we LOVE efficiency!
The more backers we attract to the project, the more we will invest in production. This will ensure that every Pawshhtag customer will receive pledge rewards in a predictable time frame.
Are you excited to be part of the first group of pet owners to receive Pawshhtag ID tags, but you've never backed a project on Kickstarter before? Don't worry, it's very easy!

Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter campaign, and similarly to our first, there is very little risk involved. Our first project - "Eh-Rings!" - was successfully funded, and all backer rewards were shipped within two weeks of the end of the campaign as planned. Like the "Eh-Rings!" project, Pawshhtag Pet ID Tags have made it through the prototyping and testing phases and are ready for production prior to launching the campaign.
Unlike the "Eh-Rings!" project, we can't start production on Pawshhtag rewards prior to the end of the campaign as each one requires customized information. Instead, we have structured our reward availability by delivery date to ensure all pledge rewards are received in a predictable time frame.
The only real challenge will start to present itself if Pawshhtags become as popular as we think they should be, and we make it into the third delivery time category. That is a challenge we will embrace with open arms and we will be absolutely thrilled to update you with our detailed plans on how to accommodate the increased production volume in the event we do exceed our targets.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
