How does a custom logo set-up work?

Adding a logo to your tags is a great way to distinguish your cattle from other herds.

For returning logo customers, choose your tag layout then select "Use a logo already on file at Allflex." Please provide a short description of your logo and ideally include the logo code that was given to you when you originally approved your logo image. This information is helpful for our team to ensure we select the correct logo (especially if you have multiple logo files).

For first-time orders with a new logo, you will need to attach a file to your order (via the tag layout you choose). There is a one-time fee that is only charged again if you want to have a different logo on file, need to make changes to an existing logo on file, or change between laser and feedlot tags.

Important Note: After your new logo is set up (in 10 business days), we will email you a proof of your logo on a tag image. Once you approve the proof, allow 21+ business days for your tags to be ready to ship. **All hand-drawn or photo images are subject to an additional set up of 10 business days due to the conversion to a JPEG file for laser printing. Once your logo is on file and approved, the logo setup process will not have to be repeated. 

When uploading a file, please make sure that your file has one of the following extensions: .jpg, .gif, .png, or .pdf.  A clear black and white file of your image is preferred as logos will not be lasered in color. After your file has been uploaded, you can add it to your cart. 

Logos are laser engraved, meaning it is permanent markings burned into the tag.  Laser engraving offers a black/grayish imprint and is much more visible on a lighter colored tag. If you are ordering a black tag, the numbers will be a gray or off-white color. The laser engraving will ensure the tag is readable for the lifetime of the animal. *Feedlot tags are ink only - no laser engraving.

Our tags can feature the logo on the neck or the panel of the tag. For example on a Maxi size tag, a logo in the neck of a tag is usually ½ inch tall by 1 inch wide while a logo in the full panel (body) of a tag is usually 1 3/8 inch tall by 2 inches wide. Logo areas will vary accordingly on the other tag sizes. Maxi tags are featured in the visuals below.
