It's so hard to loose someone you love, someone who has meant the world to you. It's hard to know someone, a friend or co-worker who has suffered loss as well. Here at Enchanted Memories, Custom Engraving & Unique Gifts, we take great pride in creating custom sympathy gifts that will, perhaps even in some small way, bring a bit of sunshine back into the day.
We've all lost someone that we would give anything to bring back, a husband, wife, mother, father, grandparents, even a child. The heartbreak can be unbearable and sorrow that you feel seems as though it will never end.

A short story we would like to share with you regarding these sympathy dog tags -
Nearly 11 years ago we had a couple come into our store-front looking for an engraved item for a remembrance of their grandson. This couple chose to have his photograph engraved on the front side of a military style dog tag and a beautiful "In Loving Memory" quote engraved on the backside. The couple began to tell us about this six year old child - Gavin had lived most of his life fighting the battle of childhood cancer. He was a beautiful child and the entire town had wrapped their arms around this family and this child. He had firemen, police officers, strangers and friends rooting for and raising money for this young family. Gavin lost his fight and the heartbreak was felt for miles and miles. Once their dog tags were completed and Gavin's story had been told, we stood together crying and embracing. They left with the engraved dog tags hanging around their neck and a smile on their face. A few weeks later, we had a visit from Gavin's mom and dad, a little later, Gavin's other grandparents, and before we knew it, we had done hundreds of these dog tags with Gavin's photograph so perfectly engraved. We had created these as gifts for the firemen, the police officers and for everyone who had done all they could do to help this little boy and his family. We felt like we knew this little boy, we left the pain that this family was feeling. Gavin's family still shops with us all these years later. They order happier gifts now, engraved gifts for weddings and anniversaries, they order birthday gifts, and "just because" gifts. To this day, Gavin's photo hangs around their neck and it looks as beautiful as the day it was engraved 11 years ago. This, our friends, is why we do what we do.
Our full color photo dog tags are becoming just as popular, though we have only created these for a few years. Here's a little more information - What a beautiful way to keep your loved ones close. With our Full Color Photo Memorial Dog Tag you will always feel as though they are always a little bit closer. Processed and baked at 400 degree, your full color dog tag will capture the vivid color of your special photograph. Simply upload your photograph and submit your order, we will take care of the rest. Text may be added to the back at no additional charge and each Full Color Photo Dog Tag comes with a 34" ball chain or split ring for keychain (please specify at time of order). Dog Tags are made of aluminum so they are sure to last for years!
How sublimation works: An imprint of your image is taken and baked together with the material of your choice at or above 400 degrees. As the material heats the ink turns to a gas penetrating the item. Once cooled the gasses are trapped inside the material, leaving your image permanently imprinted.
So, you see, it doesn't matter which one of these memorial photo dog tags you choose, they are both going to withstand the test of time, they are also very affordable with the engraved photo dog tags selling for 19.97 and the full color photo dog tags for only 24.97, you can not go wrong with this gift. Remember the one you love with an engraved photo dog tag or a full color photo dog tag and see if you too don't feel a tiny bit closer to the one you've loved and lost. You'll be glad you did!
