No one knows more about designing and making quality pet products than “the mad stampers!” No sewing collectives or outside manufacturing involved. Each collar (from sewing to engraving) is done by us; Rod & Cindy; right here in the usa! We’ve assembled only the finest usa components to design and build a collar so strong and comfortable; no other collar even comes close. Whether you are purchasing this collar to use with one of our unique hand-made tags, or you’re ready to go tagless: Check out these features, we dare you to compare our collar to any other collar on the market. Premium nylon webbing (Tensile strength: 4,200 lbs.) 100% Aluminum buckle (no cheap die-cast or plastic here.) Fully captured “D-ring” (pulls with the buckle for maximum strength, no more twisting against the webbing ~ which causes unnecessary wear.) Absolutely no exposed ends that can fray or irritate your pet’s neck. Box “x” stitch used throughout (Recommended for sewing on webbing material.) We don’t turn your collar into an advertising billboard, plain and simple. Check out all of these advance features by viewing our thumbnail photos and compare our collars to any others on the market before you make a purchase ~ you will be glad that you did!
