Need Gold plating on dog's rabies tags
December 15, 2008
Customer of ours has two dog rabies tags (so, most likely are aluminum, but MAY be steel) she would like plated with gold.
I have already attached 14K gold bails to them, FYI.
Please respond if you are willing/able to do; approximate price to do both, please. They measure approximately 1-1/8" square each.
I am willing to ship anywhere within the 48 contiguous states.

Hi, Babs. Some plating shops do not have the necessary pretreatment processes for aluminum, so your posting will get a better response if you identify the material. Steel is easily distinguished from aluminum by the fact that it is magnetic. Good luck.
