South Africa's No 1 selling Instant ID Tags!

Instant Tags, based in Cape Town, has been in business since 2012 and thanks to people taking responsibility for identifying their pets it has seen fantastic growth over the years. We now have over 500 stockists country wide and are still growing.

The popularity of Instant Tags is not only because of the importance of getting an ID Tag for our beloved Pets, but also the fun side with many fun designs to choose from for each individual personality. I often say, it takes longer for customer to choose a tag design than it takes to personalise it!

Micro chipping is very important! But the first thing somebody who has found a lost animal will look for is a collar and ID Tag. This makes it very easy to reunite the animal with their owner as quickly as possible.

For my stockists, the ease at which they can personalise a Tag while the customer waits is a major factor, as it only takes a minute or two to put the name and number onto the back of the tag and seal it.

Besides the pet industry I do many Customised Instant Tags for other uses as I can do any logo requested.

Some examples of customised tags I have done are for Guest Houses (for their room keys), Car dealerships (for Customers car keys as these are very expensive to replace), Schools (for the children’s bags), Residential Estates (to identify pets specifically from that estate), naturally these are all done with the their own Logo on the front and contact details on the back. Please see Images attached.

A Tag In Time Saves Lives

In South Africa, one in three pets goes missing in their lifetime – a shocking statistic! Without proper identification, 90% of them never return home. Yet many owners do not have collars with TAGS on their dogs or cats.

It is important to note that even if your pet never leaves your home and garden, all it takes for your pet to go missing is for someone to leave an access gate or garage door open for a second. The person leaving your gate or garage open could be one of your friends or family, a visitor, pet-sitter, domestic staff, garden service, emergency or armed response personnel. And sadly it could be a criminal breaking in!

The scary truth is that all it takes is that ONE SECOND where someone is not vigilant and your beloved pet escapes.

When a pet is lost, the owners are often wracked with regrets and guilt, but after the fact is sadly a little too late.

Putting a collar with an ID TAG on your dog or cat is inexpensive but effective!
