Dog Tag, Id Tag, Plaque Militaire, what's the difference?
Let's be clear: they're all the same! American soldiers wear Dog Tags, and the French wear Plaques Militaires. Except that they don't have the same format or geometry, and aren't necessarily made of the same metal, depending on the era and whether you live in the USA or elsewhere in the world. In fact, when we write"Plaque Militaire Dog Tag", we're referring to one format, that of the oblong 5.0 x 2.8 cm American dog tag.
What about the ID Tag?
Obviously, if we take the literal translation of the term Dog Tag out of its military context, wearing a Dog Tag fora woman or a man isn't very glamorous! Although in its original sense, it evokes the warrior who defends the nation like a dog protects its home. With the popularization of the dog tag, which even reached the point of being worn on fashion shows, an evolution of language has refocused on theidentification of the person or object wearing a tag (a beacon, a plate, a label). ThusID Tag [ pronounced Aïe Di Tag (pardon the barbaric phonetics) ] was born.
A common misconception is that you have to be a soldier, gendarme, fireman or hunter to wear military plates... Well, not at all! If you're tempted, let yourself be tempted - it's as simple as that.
Thanks to our ID Tag generator and 10 years' experience in metal marking, we've selected some of the most frequently requested compositions. YOUR ID Tag, which you can of course adapt and personalize as you wish.

Based on military steel Dog Tag plates, MonIDtag offers printed ID Tags. The technique used is UV printing on one side of the plate (the side with turned edges), followed by "cold enameling" (Doming). This involves the deposition of a polyurethane resin, creating a convex relief to the touch and providing a UV barrier for increased longevity.
These printed military plates are usually used as key rings, but can also be worn as fancy pendants.
