Yes. Numbers can be engraved on both sides of the universal dual colored tags.
When numbering tags myself using the Dremel tool, should I engrave the numbers more than once?
When numbering the tags yourself, it’s best to make a light pass (not too deep) the first time. Slowly grind away the top layer until the center layer is exposed. You will then want to go back over the numbers again with the Dremel in order to expose the maximum amount of the center layer – going wider rather than deeper. There is no need to push excessively hard.
Why are Ritchey tags considered permanent?
Ritchey’s created a dual-colored tag that allows you to engrave through the top layer to expose the center layer. This center layer then permanently displays the numbers/letters ground into the tag – there’s no ink, foils or lasered numbers. The tags have incredible retention and legibility, saving time and money for producers.
Can I use any tagger with Ritchey's Universal tags?
Ritchey’s Universal tags are designed to work with most two-piece button system. You must use the proper tagger/tool pin for the corresponding button. At this time we carry the NEW Ritchey Button (cloverleaf back) in black only, Allflex buttons in white, black, and all colors, as well as the Temple Stockman button in white.
