I was a little surprised to discover that I've never reviewed HalterTags.com before. From my very first order for his halter nameplate when I first got Connor, it's the only place I've ordered tags, and I've ordered from them five times since 2011.
|I think I've replaced this nameplate three times, but it really doesn't matter when it only costs $5.95!|
I always like to find products that are the perfect blend of affordable and high quality, and HalterTags.com absolutely nails that. Their slogan is "We engrave it deeper...CHEAPER!" and it's SO true.
I've compared it to other tags on my barnmates gear, and a lot of their plates (I'm looking at you, SmartPak) just don't look as luxurious or carefully crafted as the HalterTags stuff. Plus they cost, on average, over twice as much.
|Seriously, that's some quality craftsmanship. |
In order from top to bottom:
Longer Horse Halter Plate
Saddle Plate x2
My first couple of orders in 2012 and 2013 took a REALLY long time to get to me (like 6-7 weeks) and I would just like to publicly say THAT IS NOT THE CASE ANYMORE! They tell you that all orders are custom made and could take some time to get to you, but 6-7 weeks was not normal. I reached out to them for an update and quickly got a note back that they had some family health crises going on each time, and then got my order shortly after that. It IS a small business after all.
That said, I still thought the products and price were worth the wait, so I stuck it out. Cathryn's Secret Santa present was my fifth order, and I was shocked when they were at my door under a week from when I placed the order. Nice work, HalterTags!
|Cathryn's Halter Tags present - this is actually the Toy Dog Collar nameplate! Love mini tack!|
I have now ordered the following products from them, some multiple times:
Longer Pony Halter Plate - $5.95
Halter Nameplate Longer Horse Size - $5.95
Lead Shank Plate - $5.95
Dog Tag - $5.95
Blanket/Bridle Tags - $5.95
Belt Nameplate - $5.95
Saddle Nameplate - $5.95
Toy Dog Sized Collar Plate - $5.95 (You have to visit the website for this one, the example plate for a toy dog says "Cujo". Hahaha)
And, shipping is super reasonable (For example, the order above with the horse halter plate, belt plate and two saddle plates was $3.75 to ship).
Anyone else ordered from Halter Tags? Thoughts?
