Welcome to EZU Signs
Engraving for You!
Technology is wonderful but...Recently my granddaughter purchased a new cell phone. She was unable to transfer her stored numbers from the old phone as it was non-functional (lost or dropped or something). A situation developed where she needed to contact a family friend whose number she had stored in the old phone. She attempted to contact people who might know the phone number she needed to no avail. She asked me if I could think of someone else she could call to get the needed number. Fortunately, the friend whose number she needed is also a senior citizen (like me) who had an old fashion phone – the ones with a chord attached. You guessed it. There was also a listing in that book we use to boost up little kids who have graduated from hi-chairs and I had not yet recycled my copy. I instructed her in the use of the PHONE BOOK and she was able to make the call!
A New Era
The shows at Harrisburg were my last appearance “on the road”. I'm now concentrating my efforts on the web site. I’m pleased that many customers I’ve dealt with at dog shows the past 32 years have followed me to the site. I’m also excited that many new customers have found me via the internet. So I’m not retiring just beginning a NEW ERA. I’m looking forward to the challenge of supplying engraved signs and tags to past customers and finding new ones.
I must say, however, I won’t miss some things that came with doing 80+ shows a
year. Like the mud and being towed out of a show site, high winds causing tents
to go down and shows to be canceled, having the LED screen on the computer run
slow because it didn’t like 30 degree temperature, changing a tire on my cube
van on the Capitol Beltway during rush hour, listening to the PA announcer call
(for the 4th time) for a vehicle to be moved “immediately or it will be towed –
the tow truck is on the way”, watching flood waters rising in the parking lot
and seeing the wheel chocks float away as I pull my trailer to higher ground.
I will miss the comradery of my fellow dog show vendors. I expect to continue to share in the excitement of achieving a new title when I get the order for a crate sign and a new puppy with the order for a pet tag.
Our New Engraver with the Latest in Technology
Now that we're not doing the dog shows, we're taking this extra time to bring on a new engraving machine and add some of the latest technology with our new software. We are now able to engrave custom logos, and provide customers with previews for their input. Please check our Custom Logo Engraving and now you can add your Kennel's logo to your crate signs!

"Dewey, I received my crate and collar tags today. They are perfect, as expected. The two-sided collar tags, which are the small cat-size, have all the information needed to facilitate a fast return of my dogs should they ever become lost. Ordering from you through your website was as easy and fast as ordering at a dogshow. Thank you for your advice and fast turn around." Amy ( Sumners0307@comcast.net )
"I received the replacement signs and they are perfect. Photo above. Thanks! I will surely order from you again in the future."

Jessica at Riser_roni@yahoo.com - 2" x 8" Plastic Crate Sign with 3 Lines (phone number was blanked out)
"Just wanted to say thank you for such quick production and shipping! I bought signs from you 10 or so years ago which still look brand new, and found your site when looking for current show locations. Thanks again!"
My husband & I built a gate on my daughter's deck so her dog, "Sawyer" could sit outside with them without being tied up. Since it was "Sawyer's Gate" I wanted to attach a sign indicating that. Searching on-lin I was fortunate to come across your site and basically, "took a shot". The sign is perfect and the turn around time was amazing. I will definitely keep your info for futre use and recommend to everyone. Thanks again!

Our Featured Products
The judge's pins are solid brass. As the information is engraved into the brass, it won't wear off. I offer 3 types of attachment -pin, clutch (think tie tack) and at an additional charge, magnet. The magnet backs have become more popular as the strength of the magnets has improved. It also seems that the small size is more popular than in the past. Anecdotally, some clubs have ordered pins as judge's gifts. The list provided to me often includes a title - Mr., Mrs., Ms., Dr etc. However my experience has been that 90% ot the time a pin is ordered by an individual, no such title is requested.
We also now have the Classic AKC Logo and the Current AKC Logo. Sample images coming soon...
Crate signs serve multiple purposes: Identifying the dog for kennel help; associating the owner and/or handler with the dog, advertising the kennel name, providing ownership and contact information, acknowledging blood lines, and of course acknowledging accomplishments (bragging?).
Crate Signs can be used to identify crates, x-pens, runs, rooms, etc. and are available in sizes from 1.25” x 3.5” to 4” x 6” .
Crate signs are also great to use with color coding for dogs that can play or stay together. So, use crate signs with the same colors for dogs that can be put together, so it's very clear to the help!
I choose to call the flat rivet-on style IDs "collar tags" or "collar plates" to differentiate them from the hanging type. They come with rivets for mounting. A hammer is needed to set the rivet. For do-it-your-selfers, the toughest part usually is putting a hole in the leather or nylon. Some customers send me the collar so I can mount the tag. Others have me send the tag to the leather maker for them to mount the tag. Once mounted there is nothing to jingle or catch on something.
