While you are waiting for your new ID tags to arrive, here is a very basic but effective "temporary tag" you can easily make straightaway to make sure your pets have some temporary form of ID tag on at least...

A temporary free pet ID tag made from an icecream container and a plaster...- Take the lid of an icecream container, preferably white or light colour
- Stick a plaster on the back (unprinted) side
- Write the critical info on the centre of the plaster in
permanent pen preferably, or ballpoint pen. 
- Cut around the plaster in a circle using scissors so that the details on the plaster are in the middle of your tag
- Using a compass, or your best steak knife etc carefully make a little hole at the top.
- Find one of those twisty ties lurking in the back of the drawer and attach it through the new hole to the collar.

Definitely not flash, but it does the trick! (if you don't use a plaster, the writing rubs off really easily, even with
permanent pen...)
