How much text you can engrave on your custom Necklace - Dog Tag

Here’s how much space you have to engrave text on a necklace that carries a dog tag:

  • Line 1 - 25 characters / spaces
  • Line 2 - 25 characters / spaces
  • Line 3 - 25 characters / spaces
  • Line 4 - 25 characters / spaces
  • Line 5 - 25 characters / spaces
  • Line 6 - 25 characters / spaces

As a general rule, we will centre the text (unless you ask us to do something different).

The exact size and position of the letters will also depend on the text you send to us. For example, a shorter message can be engraved larger, and vice versa. Also the letter "M" is bigger than the letter "i", so this makes a difference when the text is laid out as well.

If you would like some words to be larger than others (for example one large word, with smaller text underneath), then please let us know when you place your order and we will do our best to achieve it for you.

IF YOU ENTER TEXT IN CAPITAL LETTERS, WE WILL ENGRAVE IT THAT WAY. But if you would like a mix of uppercase and lowercase ... Please Enter It That Way.

Rest assured that we will achieve the best layout possible with the words that you would like engraved. If we have any questions or suggestions once we see it, we'll get in touch.

If you have any questions about your wording or layout, please get in touch on
