About Us

"Thomas Name Tags" was founded in 1985 to provide the military community a place where every member of the United States Military could get their name tags made to specifications. It was founded by a veteran and her active duty husband.

We began simply by making fatigue name strips for US Air Force personnel, by hand in the basement. The tags made by "Thomas Name Tags," and the business, made their way around the country following each successive Permanent Change of Station assignment. Finally, "Thomas Name Tags" made its way to and settled in Colorado Springs, Colorado in the early '80's. Once here "Thomas Name Tags" began to expand to include other types of tags. The United States Army organizations at Fort Carson, the training squadrons at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) and many High School Reserve training Officer Corps(ROTC) Detachments at area High Schools needed support; so we quickly began to broaden our inventory to include Army and Reserve Training Officer Corps and USAFA Squadron requirements.

We quickly became known for the quality of our cloth crew tags worn on flight suits and embossed leather worn on the flight jackets at the Air Force Academy. Soon we added dress uniform plastic tags for all services, including Civil Air Patrol and Reserve Training Officer Corps. As time went on, USAFA graduates began to ask us if we could do their unit cloth crew as well. We obliged with pleasure, and the reputation of the "Thomas Name Tags" products began to spread.

In the early '90's we added some new technology for our customers use. We added a FAX machine and an e-mail address, allowing people to fax and e-mail orders to us. This technology allowed military men and women to fax their orders for their name tags from places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, England, and the Philippines. Yes they could have gotten their tags done in those countries but not to the standards we have for our tags. The quality of our products seem to bring people back for more. We ship worldwide and all over the country.

We have since passed our twentieth year in operation and we provide nearly every type of name tag required by our military personnel, including the new metal tag required by the United States Air Force for their dress blues or "Class A" uniform. We have continued to add additional tags and products to our inventory. We also launched our web site to add another piece of technology to our arsenal. With the launching of this web site we are making yet another move to improve our support to the American and now Canadian military heroes of North America. "Thomas Name Tags" will continue to provide high quality nametags to military men and women as long as there is a need for our services.
