    I like to permanently mark my birds by wing bands, but I want colored wing bands (2 different colors) and leg bands (any color but green or red) in size 7, 9 and 12.

    Thing is...I've found two separate supplies but only one has the better pricing for the bandettes, but don't have the wing bands I'm after.

    Can anyone suggest a supplier that carries colored wing bands (that might be able to be engraved) AND bandettes in 7, 9 and 12 at a reasonable price?

    Thanks!

    Haven't yet...it was really hard to understand their website so I haven't been able to decipher them yet. I did find a place up in Kansas that may have everything I need for a good price, but I'm not sure if they're in business anymore?

    I've seen the Smith site, I have personally never ordered from them. I did just check out the website again and the home page says it was updated 10-1-2013 so it looks like they are still in business.

    I contacted both of them via email. Thanks for the help! I hope I can get some quotes on the engraving and the special ordered colors.

    I really don't want to use Red on any of my birds. Why create a problem when there isn't one ya know?

    The best deal and easiest to work with by FAR was the National Tag and Band Co.! It was great! Supposed to ship on Nov. 1...cutting it kind of close to shows, but...
