This new service allows customers to order sets of 100 blank stainless steel tags, up to 10 sets (1,000 tags) and they will be quickly shipped within two business days! As a manufacturer we produce all our tags in house, and it typically takes at least a week to manufacture blank tags. But we listened to our customers and we responded, with a way to get your blank tags faster!

We currently have three different sizes available for the quick ship service: 1” x 3” inches, 1.25” x 3 inches, and 1.5” x 3” inches.

Our .030” stainless steel tags have a type 304 2B finish, which is dull, not attracted to magnets and is non-corrosive.  Tags also come with two 1/8” holes on the right and left side. This is our most popular hole size and is great for making tags easily attachable to pieces of equipment, pallets, shelves, and other assets.

Blank tags allow you to stamp or engrave your own information on site when you need it, such as serial numbers, dates, inspection checks, inventory counts, and more! Click the link below to be taken to the online order form for the Industrial Blank Tag Quick Ship!

Celebrate “World Rabies Day” with National Band & Tag

World Rabies Day is approaching! September 28th is the day that brings awareness to rabies worldwide.  It is estimated that over 40,000 people in the US are exposed to rabies each year.  This exposure could come from your own dog or cat or after your dog or cat had an encounter with a raccoon, skunk, fox or a bat that has rabies.  People have associated rabies as an issue for dogs, but in 2009 there were 3 times more cat rabies cases reported than dogs, 81 to 300.  Rabies as a global issue affects 55,000 people and the cost associated with rabies is estimated to be more than $300 million in the US alone.

So, protect your family and pets and remember to get your dog and cat their rabies vaccination shot.  And don’t forget to change the tag on their collar.  The shape and color of the recommended tag changes every year.  There are 4 shapes and colors that are recommend by NASPHV and the shape for 2016 is the red heart.  The shape for 2015 was the green bell.  These shapes and colors are recommended for the 1 year vaccination.  By having the proper tag on, health officials will be able to determine if your animal is up to date with their vaccination.  This might just help keep your dog or cat alive.

White Nose Syndrome – Bat Tags

fruit batDid you know, bats are crucial to our ecosystem, without them the insect population would grow out of control, and ecosystem balance would be completely thrown off? Many species of bats have been put on the endangered species list with the Indiana bats’ population dwindling down to just a few caves in the country. A contributor to the dwindling of the bat population is White Nose Syndrome. White Nose Syndrome (WNS) causes bats to grow a white fungus on the skin of the muzzle, ears, and wings. This fungus causes the bats to come out of hibernation in the winter and is detrimental to bat populations, as bats cannot survive in the winter with the cold temperatures and lack of food. The infected and healthy bats have to be tracked and carefully monitored to make sure the populations do not suffer further.

At National Band and Tag Company, we manufacture tags for bats, which help in the process of identifying non-infected bats. Our bat tags are light weight tags that bends over the wing and don’t pierce the membrane. Click the image below to learn more.

Time to Harvest the Grapes – Vineyard Tags

vineyard tagsWine harvesting season is upon us as the summer comes to a close and the leaves begin to change, fall is right around the corner! Each wine is harvested at a different time through the months of August to October in the northern hemisphere. The time depends on the grapes of course, but each one ripens during specific weeks throughout this time period.

How can National Band & Tag Company help with your harvest?

To distinguish between the multiple rows of differing grapes, some form of identification is needed. Our custom vineyard labels have been the solution for numerous winemakers. These vineyard tags come in many styles and materials including polyurethane and UV Stable Black Aluminum. Our UV Stable Aluminum is fantastic for outdoor uses such as this, and will stand up against time and weather. These tags can be laser etched, bar-coded, or can come with logos and graphics.

National Chicken Wing Day – Chicken Wing Bands

The people of the United States love chicken! July 29 was deemed National Chicken Wing Day by the city of New York where Buffalo Wings were first invented. More chickens are raised for food than all other land animals combined, and Americans alone consume 8 billion chickens a year. Most of these chickens are farm raised for different fast food chains and grocery stores. These large corporations raise hundreds of thousands of chickens and need to identify them.

At National Band and Tag, we love chickens and love to make bands for chickens!

For this purpose, we make identification wing bands and leg bands for the chickens in order to track, breed, process, and produce chicken. Our most popular style of wing bands are metal. They can be closed without an applicator and can be laser etched with numbers and bar codes. We have many different styles of bands, colors, and options depending on your needs. Let National Band & Tag help you with all of your identification needs today!
