Which packaging is best for you?

While the tags are the most important part, attachments and how you want your tags packaged are important too! Do you need some help deciding on what kind of packaging is right for your company? Check out our multiple ways of packaging Rabies Tags below.

What Colors of Aluminum Do We Have?

One question that we receive at National Band & Tag often is about our colored aluminum and what shade it is. You’ll see a chart of the colors we offer below, however, keep in mind that different computers and devices show colors differently. This means a blue tag on your smart phone might look a different shade of blue on your desktop computer.

Dog, Cat, and Industrial Tag Aluminum Colors

Also, when we purchase our material, there is a certain amount of shade variation from one order to another. One batch of red may not be the same shade of red as another. It usually stays within a certain color range, but we cannot guarantee that the red tag your received last year will be the same exact red you get this year.

The most accurate way to see a color is to request free samples of the styles you are interested in. Our free samples come from overruns of current orders so it is coming from our current material stock. Colors can vary by products as well and by what we have in stock. Please contact a sales representative at 859-261-2035 to find out what colors are available or what can be ordered.

Our aluminum colors for dog, cat, and industrial tags include: plain, red, blue, green, orange, yellow, gold, black, white and purple.

Our aluminum colors for wing bands and poultry products include: plain, red, light red, blue, light blue, green, light green, yellow, orange, light orange, pink, light pink, purple, light purple, brown, light brown, tan, black, gray and white.

National Cat Day

national-cat-dayOn October 29, we celebrate a day dedicated to one of the most popular American owned household pets. You guessed it; National Cat Day! Approximately 30-35% of American households own a cat, that’s approximately 70-75 million cats.

On your cat’s day, show them you love them and care for them.

Similar to dogs, cats also need three tags on them at all times:

Although more dogs get lost each year, cats still need identification and a way to return home as well.

Make sure your cat’s day is purr-fect! Let them toy with your shoestrings and cuddle up next to you.

What’s your cat’s name? Does he/she have a license tag?

 

World Rabies Awareness Day

IMG_9629In case you didn’t know, this coming Monday is World Rabies Awareness Day. Rabies is a virus that attacks the central nervous system of mammals and is transmitted through the bite of an infected animal. This virus is deadly, but luckily there is a fast-acting cure.  The number of rabies cases has gone down as animal vaccination has increased, however, rabies is still deadly and people should exercise caution around animals exhibiting abnormal behavior.

So, what are National Band and Tag’s association with rabies vaccinations?

We manufacture Rabies Vaccination Tags for many veterinary offices. Every time your cat or dog gets a rabies vaccination, they must be wearing the updated vaccination tag alongside their pet license and name tag. Without this tag, it can cost you if your pet gets lost. Keep your pets safe from rabies by keeping them up to date with their vaccinations. Not only are you protecting your pet, but you’re also preventing the possible spread of this deadly virus. Check out the samples of our Rabies Tags!

 

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.

How much do you love your pet?

Happy Pet Appreciation Week! Every year the first full week of June is Pet Appreciation Week (June 7-13, 2015) dedicated to your beloved pets! A pet is so much more than just an animal, they are a symbol of companionship, love and happiness. Some people even consider their pet to be a family member! So make sure to give your pet extra attention this week while also following some National Band & Tag tips for caring for your dog!

Tip #1.) Get your pet their license.

Did you know, it is the law to have your pet licensed? Many states require you to renew their license annually! Dog licenses on average cost $10-$20 dollars which is less than the fine you will pay if your dog is caught without a license. Other benefits include improving chances of animals being returned if lost and license fees support local animal shelters.

Tip #2.) Get your pet up to date on their rabies vaccination.

Depending on what state you live in, your pet may receive annual rabies vaccinations or receive them every three years. Rabies is a severe viral disease of the central nervous system that can be passed by salvia. The most common method of transfer is an infected wild animal such as a bat, fox, raccoon, or skunk biting your pet and infecting them. Rabies vaccinations are also required by law in all states.

Tip#3.) Get your pet a name tag.

This is simply a tag with your pet’s name on one side and your contact information on the back so if your pet is found they can be easily and quickly returned to you!

In all, your pet should have 3 tags on them at all times, pet license tag, rabies vaccination tag and name tag. This will help ensure that if they get lost they will be returned to you while also following all the laws!

Happy Pet Appreciation Week from National Band & Tag Company!
