The order was a tad delayed, but a quick email to them informed me they had some personal issues that slowed production but they got my order out immediately and offered a discount on a future order with them.
As annoyed as I was for the extended wait, when the plates showed up I was pretty impressed with the quality.
One thing I like about HalterTags is that most of their "smaller" products are all just a flat rate of $5.95. It's way more affordable than ordering through the main tack suppliers and I think they look much more substantial. The brass is thick (really thick) and the engravings are deep. The hardware that comes with is also high quality and they even give you a choice of what sort of fasteners you want (depending on your preference and/or handiness with tools).
Installing the plate on Prair's Bridle was a little tricky given her thread-through crown, but I'm really happy with the results. Also, now I'm confident that when Gus's tack gets used for lessons it's a bit easier to keep track of his girth and accoutrements.
I will definitely be ordering through HalterTags again whenever the need arises!
