IslandTopCustomTags Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway

Since receiving Carolyn, I've really come to appreciate and love customized items for her.  The love, dedication and labor put into a handmade item is really special and heartwarming.  I enjoy having pieces that nobody else has and you can't buy them at any old store.  I appreciate people's talents and it certainly shows in some of the favorite toys and blankets that Carolyn has that were handmade.



IslandTopCustomTags is a shop ran by owner Paula.  She specializes in handmade custom pet ID tags and personalized hand stamped pendants for people. The pet ID tags are fantastic and they are done through a rigorous stamping and soldering process.  The end result is a unique, made to order tag that you and your dog will enjoy for years to come. Not only does Paula write whatever text you'd like, she creates different designs and even a picture of your pet on the tag! She has a big talent and the pet tags would make a great gift for any new pet owner.

Paula graciously sent my Carolyn a hand stamped tag.  Since Carolyn is part westie, I thought it'd be cute to make her a tag with a Westie's face on it, and then her name on the back.  She has to be proud of her background, right? The tag came fairly quickly and I was very impressed with the results.

Look at the detail on this! I absolutely love it and I can tell a lot of love and time went into creating this piece!

I love the sweet little bow on the back. 

The tag is certainly a high quality piece of work.  I love the picture of the Westie, it's so cute! The tag is fairly large and the detail of the face is easy to recognize. The bronze with the silver is a nice color combination. I've attached it to her collar and there's been no issues with it bothering Carolyn.  My friends have commented on a what a cool, unique piece it is and they want to know where I had it made.  I recommended Paula's Etsy shop of course! I'm really satisfied with the piece and I smile whenever I look at it. 

I enjoy being able to offer custom made pieces for Carolyn to enjoy.  I also love helping small businesses too, it makes me happy. 

If you're looking for a custom tag to represent your dog or cat's personality, Paula's waiting for your order!

  4. My guy Shorty would look great with the bow tie tag. I'm surprised there was no crown because my Tia is a true princess ;-)

  5. Paula does amazing work, well priced considering the detail of the work. I am the proud owner of a golden retriever adopted last November and Finlay likes to wear his special bling. I had a memorial pendant made for myself with the name of all the dogs I have been guardian to, get lots of comments on it.
