Project Published 12/8/18 Last updated on 2/28/20

Military dog tags and pet tags are super popular products at schools and in our community. This document contains a lesson on creating a jig and converting the art for the into a template. I also have examples and information on ordering the anodized aluminum blanks.

Preparing Art for the Laser: Here are some video tutorials if you are not familiar with how to prepare your art for the laser. We use a Universal and Epilog lasers. Your laser might have different requirements.

​Thanks! I need to teach my students (CTE high school) how to use Adobe Illustrator to use our laser engraver. This would be a great first project!
