I loooove seeing photos of our tags still going strong! Luna is one of our original customers from way back when I very first opened shop over a year and a half ago, and still likes to show off her tag. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ“ท:@luna_petunia_the_mutt โ€” As my maternity leave is coming to a close, my processing time for tags will be going back down. Instead of the current 2-3 month turnaround time, Iโ€™ll be processing all tags within 3-4 weeks starting today! Iโ€™m hoping to eventually cut back to my normal 2-3 weeks, but Iโ€™ll let you all know when that happens. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€” All current orders will be processed within the next 3-4 weeks max and shipped out to you! โ€” And to celebrate the faster processing time, Iโ€™m offering 20% off all tag sales now through Monday. Use code 20OFF at checkout! โ€” #weeklyfluff #bestwoof #excellent_dogs #dogsandpals @dogsandpals #husky #thevisualcollective #animalsco #animaladdicts @animalsco @animaladdicts #siberianhusky #husky #dogsofficialdog #mydogiscutest #hikingwithdogs #ilovemydog #dogsofinstagram #ruffpost #adventuredogsofficial #thedodo #wolf #instadog #adventuredog #dogs_of_world #dogsthathike #topdogphoto #huskiesreq @puppystagrams @babyanimalstagram @pups #dogscorner #whpscale


Thanks for hanging in there with us, everyone! โ€” For those who donโ€™t know or havenโ€™t caught up, I was pregnant & gave birth to a beautiful little girl on September 11th! And thatโ€™s why Iโ€™ve been a bit MIA from Instagram. ๐Ÿ™ˆโค๏ธ โ€” Iโ€™ve still been processing orders, just at a slower rate, while I take time to heal & learn how to become a parent to our daughter. As of right now, the processing time will remain anywhere between 2-3 months, but as the end of November draws near, Iโ€™ll be lowering it back down to 3-4 weeks where it will remain for a bit. โ€” I should be checking Instagram more regularly again, but a surefire way to contact me is via Etsy, as I always get notified and check that daily. Feel free to reach out with any questions! โ€” #smallbusiness #smallbusinesslove #dogtag #handmade #handcrafted #sewing #summerlaunch #metaldogtag #wildlingdesignco #wdc #wildling #dogsofinstagram #business #dogshop #shopsmall #ilovemydog #dogsofinstagram #campingwithdogs #ruffpost #adventuredogsofficial #thedodo #wolf #instadog #adventuredog #dogs_of_world #dogsthathike #topdogphoto #huskiesreq #dogsonadventures #wildernessculture #whpmotion


Newest design up in the shop, first one to go out to @ripley_theborderaussie. ๐Ÿ˜ โ€” Please remember that all communication for orders is done through Etsy, and to check your messages on there! I *cannot* continue to make your tag without your font choice, color choice, and especially your approval of your proof. โ€” Reminder: all tags purchased at this time have an extended processing time, due to my maternity leave. See the shop announcement on Etsy for more information.


โ€ผ๏ธREMINDERโ€ผ๏ธ Today is the LAST DAY to get an order in and shipped within the 2-3 week timeframe before I head out for maternity leave! โ€” Orders submitted AFTER today will have a 2-3 MONTH turnaround time. I will be accepting orders during my leave, and will be checking messages regularly, but will be taking the time to learn how to become a mom first & foremost. โ€” The 2-3 week timeframe WILL return roughly 12 weeks after baby is born; Iโ€™ll announce an exact date as things approach. Thanks so much for understanding! ๐Ÿค— โ€” Updates on orders during my leave can be given at ANY point to see where things are at and if I have an idea as to when your tag will be finished - feel free to reach out anytime!


Hey all! For those who donโ€™t know the person behind @wildlingdesignco, Iโ€™m Melanie! Iโ€™m also the owner of the @expeditionhusky pack! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• โ€” I started this business a bit over a year ago and found out just how much I loved designing and creating custom, unique tags. While the process isnโ€™t as easy & takes more time compared to something like a stamped tag, itโ€™s fun to be able to get those personalized, custom designs on tags for you guys. โ€” At the end of last year, I found out I was pregnant ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿป - my husband and I had been dealing with infertility + treatments for over a year. Due to the wonderful news, I was forced to close shop due to the process involved in getting the design onto the tags (I donโ€™t use laser!) and my current home shop setup was not conducive to a pregnant lady. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Thinking it was all a pipe dream and Iโ€™d never be able to open shop again (at least for 5-7 years ๐Ÿ™ƒ), I decided to completely shut down everything, as hard as it was. โ€” With the help of my husband, we were able to sort some things out, adjust some things with setup, and get the shop up & running again so I could continue to make tags starting in June. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป โ€” Now, with all of that, Iโ€™m due with our little girl in just 3 weeks (already?! holy crap!)! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ And with that will come a bit of time I wonโ€™t be able to make tags again while Iโ€™m learning to become a mom to our baby girl, and as I ease back into a routine Iโ€™ll be taking some time to catch up with orders. โ€” So, the LAST DAY to order a tag to be made & shipped before I lay low for a bit of maternity leave will be this coming Sunday, August 19th. ***Any orders placed AFTER August 19th will be accepted, but have a processing time of 2-3 months*** โ€” If you have any questions regarding an order placed or to be placed AFTER August 19th, Iโ€™ll still be checking in on here and on Etsy, so feel free to reach out any time. โ˜บ๏ธ


Itโ€™s been a hot minute since Iโ€™ve posted. ๐Ÿ™ˆ But how perfect does @topaz_themini look in their new etched Pine Forest tag?! ๐Ÿ˜


All our bandanas come with the option to snap closed - this allows for both the ability to tie, snap, or both for added security!


Love seeing happy mail! ๐Ÿค— โ€” Getting back to the grind tomorrow to make some etched tags for gorgeous pups like River from @thenortherndogs, and Cleo from @lilpittiecleo! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป


Nearly all of my materials, and gear needed to make the bandanas and tags comes directly from other small businesses like my own! From the fabrics, to the metal, to the vegan, faux-leather logo tags used. โ€” I strongly believe in supporting other small businesses to help them achieve their goals, and letโ€™s be honest, most stuff you find in a big box store is boring, cookie-cutter, and totally not worth it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€” Iโ€™ve added a whole bunch of our original etched tag designs to the shop! Click the link in our bio to see all of the options & get your order placed! ๐Ÿ˜


Letโ€™s talk tags. โ€” My shop offers two different types of tags: Etched, and Stamped. Both types of tags are brass, both are hand designed and created, but whatโ€™s the true difference? โ€” Stamped tags are simply that: stamped. An indent is created from the design (or hand-created), filled with a black finish, and sealed to help protect the tag from tarnishing too soon. โ€” My etched tags are created via a lengthy process that makes them more unique than something pushed out of a laser etching machine, or something from a big box store. They are 100% hand designed, and each step is a delicate process to make every detail right. The etched tags have a 3D effect to them, allowing the design to pop, surrounded by either a darkening finish, or a color of your choice, and then sealed to help preserve the color and resist tarnishing. โ€” Etched tags also allow for much more fine detail than a stamped tag, which allows for far more intricate designs, and far more customizable designs. โ€” Any of our tags come with a specifically-selected TITANIUM split ring to apply to your dogโ€™s collar, or attach to a clip. These rings are sturdy, strong, and durable, and meant for the adventurous dog. โ€” For care of your tags to make them last, check out the FAQ section of our Etsy page! โ€” (Collar in photo by @bandedpines ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป)


๐ŸŽ‰ DOG TAG GIVEAWAY!๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜ฑ In honor of adding stamped tags to our shop alongside our signature etched tags, I wanted to offer up a custom designed stamped tag to one lucky pup. โ€” Rules: - Follow @wildlingdesignco! - Tag as many friends below as youโ€™d like EACH ON A SEPARATE LINE! One comment/line = one entry. โ€” Prizes: - Stamped tag shown in photo with your pets name added (1โ€ square, brass). - One bandana of your choice from our shop. โ€” Thatโ€™s it! Giveaway will run until Sunday 6/24 at 12PM EST. Winner will be announced in the evening. โ€” [This giveaway is not affiliated with Instagram]

In the coming weeks we will be able to offer our signature etched brass tags again! As of right now, only the decal tags will be available (link in our bio to order yours!) but as the weeks progress I will be adding more of our fun designs to the shop. โ€” In addition, stamped tags will be available soon as well. โ€” Etched tags go through a process that takes a bit of time to complete, therefore, expect about 2-3 weeks turnaround time to complete your tag. Each tag is completely handmade, hand-colored, and hand-sealed. I donโ€™t use laser, I donโ€™t use an etching machine, but I do work diligently to make your tag beautiful. ๐Ÿค— โ€” Also - to celebrate Etsyโ€™s 13th birthday, everything in our shop is currently 10% off! Discount automatically applied at checkout. โ˜บ๏ธ


Our Rose, Gold, 'n' Mint Bandana is now available in the shop, featuring beatutiful tones, and finished off with gold stitching.
