  • The less text you use, the better the results. The auto-sizing of text is based on character density, # of lines used and total width of your text.

    Handling Typos + Change Requests

    It is very important that you please proof your engraving instructions before submitting your order. The customer is responsible for any typos or incorrect information provided for the order. Note: It does not matter what you "think" you may have entered for the order. Whatever actual information is listed on the order itself (which will appear in your order confirmation email, sent automatically after your order is placed) -- is what our production team will be using to engrave your ID tag.

    Note: Due to our efforts to process and ships our orders quickly, we CANNOT guarantee the ability to honor change requests once your order has been submitted, regardless of how soon you contact us after the order is placed. To see about the possibility of requesting a change, email us ASAP at help@madebycleo.com with the details about your requested change.

    A change order fee of $5 per item will be due for any item that has already been engraved by the time your change request has been reviewed (if you still wish to go through with applying the change).


    A Note About Slide Tags (Guidelines & Reqs):

    • Slide tags are considered a specialty ID tag —they are our best-selling tag option, due to their elegant & sleek profile (and their silent, non-distracting advantages), handy for pets who dislike or are unfamiliar with wearing collars. However, slide tags also have certain unique compatibility requirements & guidelines that differ from the traditional "hanging-tag" options that most people are familiar with. Please note them below before purchasing.
      • Slide tags lie flat & silent on the collar,similar to a nameplate (i.e. they do not hang down and dangle). 
      • Only the front can be engraved. The back will not be visible.
      • A slide tag is permanently attached to the collar it is installed on -- it cannot be removed (unless you cut it off).
      • If you wish for all of your collars to have slide tags on them, please order the same # of slide tags as the # of collars.
      • If you strongly prefer being able to use the same single ID tag on multiple collars, please consider our traditional "hanging" tags (circle / heart tags) instead, which ARE removable and interchangeable.
      • Ordering a slide tag requires that you order it at the same time as a collar purchase from our shop (This is mandatory because it is not physically possible to attach the slide tag AFTER the collar has already been sewn together -- the buckle parts will not fit through the narrow tag slots).
      • When adding a slide tag to your cart, please specify (in the designated form field above) which collar in your order that the slide tag will be paired with. For example, enter a description (e.g. "Blue plaid collar") or the style name (e.g. "Kingston")
      • A slide tag will reduce the maximum adjustable length of the collar it is on by 1.5 inches. That is, your collar's minimum length will remain the same, but the maximum extended length will be shorter by 1.5".
      • If your pet's neck size is already close to the maximum end of the adjustable size range for your collar, please either select the next collar size up, OR add a note in the 'Special Instructions' box indicating the exact current neck size of your pet. (This will allow us to make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the collar fits your pet well (even with the slide tag on).
      • Collars with slide tags on them are considered "custom / non-returnable"items due to the personalized nature of this type of custom modification. "Slide tag collars" cannot be returned for a refund or an exchange simply on the condition that the buyer changed his/her mind or ordered the wrong size. Please order carefully and with certainty when getting this type of custom product.
      • All collars in our store will fit the slide tags we sell in terms of width, regardless of the neck size you choose.
      • If you wish to mail your slide tag from a previous purchase for re-use  or have any other questions that we might be able to assist you with, please email us.

    It is perfect. Thank you so much.


    Perfect addition to the collar. Easy to read.


    Excellent customer service and quality product. I am so happy with the collar I purchased for my new kitten !

    Hailey S.
    Very cute but phone number incorrect

    This charm is the perfect size and absolutely adorable! Unfortunately the phone number I wanted on the charm was not engraved correctly so I will need to get a new tag with the correct number. Love everything else I’ve ordered here!


    Attached style does not fit the width of the collar perfectly and causes minor curling but quality with clear lettering otherwise

    Sizing & Hardware Options

    Standard Collar Sizes (listed in inches)

    The numbers listed below represent the shortest & longest adjustable length range for the neck size options we offer. We strongly recommend measuring your pet's neck before ordering, if this is your first time. Tip: A simple piece of string or ribbon (or equivalent flexible household item) can be used to assess the collar length your pet needs -- then measure the amount of string you used, laid out flat alongside a straight ruler. Often, customers may not realize their pet is smaller (or larger) than average prior to measuring!

    If your pet is in-between sizes, select the closest size from the dropdown menu, but be sure to provide your pet's exact neck size measurements in the "Special Instructions" message box (on the Cart page before checkout) so that our seamstresses can make any necessary custom sizing adjustments to ensure an optimal fit for your pet. We'll take care of it as long as you give us the measurements!

    Kitten 6-10" (inches) Fits small cats
    Adult Cat 8-13" (inches) Fits average-sized & larger cats
    XL Cat 12-16" (inches) Fits extra large, big cats
    Tiny Dog 6-10" (inches) Fits very small pups (measure to be sure)
    Mini Dog 8-13" (inches) Fits Chihuahuas, Yorkies, toy breeds
    Small Dog 12-16" (inches) Fits Beagles, Jack Russell Terriers, Pugs

    A Note About Adding "Slide" Tags to Collars: If ordering a personalized slide tag name plate to be put on your collar, the length of the tag will reduce the maximum length of the collar by 1.5 inches. If your pet's neck size is very close to the maximum of a certain size range and you plan to get a slide tag with the collar - to avoid any fit issues, we recommend ordering the next size up, or adding a note in the "Order Notes" box (located on the Cart page before checkout) to let us know your pet's exact neck size so our studio can make any necessary adjustments as needed.


    Collar Terminology & Options

    "Size" refers to the collar's adjustable length (in inches).Note: The standard width of our collars is 1/2", regardless of the size option / length you select. To see a quick demo on how to adjust the size of your pet collar and achieve an optimal fit, watch the video below.


    "Buckle Type" refers to the black or white standard plastic side-release clasp shown in all collar product photos in our store. On every collar product page, you will be given the option to select whether you prefer a "Breakaway" or "Non-Breakaway" plastic buckle clasp. Both types look the same as what you see in the photos — the difference has to do with the internal pronged mechanism, which makes them function differently. See the illustration below to compare the visual differences. Please Note: The details regarding the differences shown below will apply whether it's pertaining to a white or black buckle clasp:

    The functional differences are as follows:

    "Hardware" accent color refers to the various standard metal components that are part of the pet collar— i.e. the collar length adjuster, the round split ring for cat collars (or D-ring for dog collars), and the included removable bell. Note: The hardware color choices do NOT apply to the plastic buckle clasp - the buckle will always be plastic (unless you specifically order a metal buckle upgrade to go with your collar).
