Next in our collection of DIYs for pets are these DIY pet tags. They are so easy to make with just some shrink film! Our designer Krista created a bunch of different design options, so choose your favorite and get to customizing.
Tools & Materials
- Hole punch
- White Shrink Film
Customizing Your Tags
- Download the PDF below and choose your favorite design.
- Download the corresponding font (listed below).
- Edit the ID tag with your pet’s name and your phone number.
- Print onto shrink film and trim the designs.
- Use the hole punch to create a hole at the top of the tag.
- Bake the tag according to the package instructions.
- Pull the tags out of the oven and use a book to flatten out the tags as they cool.
There are two font options, a slab font and a script font. Before editing the names, download and install the free fonts Tulia and Grand Hotel. As you see in the download, there are two shapes of the pet tags, a bone and a circle. You will also find versions of each with space for just a name, or space for both a name and phone number. And to be as thorough as possible, there are also designs for both shorter pet names and longer pet names! Print directly onto the shrink film and then cut with sharp scissors. To add some cute variation to our DIY pet tags, we also cut some of them with a scalloped punch. The colors on the tags look pastel when printed, but they will become much more vibrant after you bake them. Make sure that you are punching a hole at the top before you bake them!
