Pigeon Bands from Spain


Did anyone else get the E-mail ad from a company in Spain selling bands? They are really cool. You can get them in any color and they have different Spanish Pouter and Spanish flags to pick from. If you can't speak Spanish you will have to get someone to order for you. The website is www.annillascolumba.com/eng/. Check it out, they also have links to some cool Spanish Pouter sights.

Re: Pigeon Bands from Spain


I have been getting my personalized bands from them. I highly recommend them.
This is the design I use for my Gaditanos

They are fast. It takes about 2 weeks to get the bands. Reasonably priced. They will customize your bands anyway you want them as far as background and text color, and will even use your own photo if you choose. I have not had a language problem with them, as long as I keep my English simple and to the point. They now accept Paypal, before I had to use Western Union, it was a pain and cost an extra 15.00. They will also do the year and consecutive numbers if you choose.

Here's some I ordered for the Flying Oriental Roller Society. The club raves about the bands.

Re: Pigeon Bands from Spain


What I am planning for next year is to have a different band for each breed I keep, with a picture of that breed on each band. Not only the Spanish Pouters but my other breeds as well. I think they are so cool emoticon

Re: Pigeon Bands from Spain


Try this: http://www.anillascolumba.com/eng/ They now have an English translation which makes it so much eaisier. I wonder if all my orders inspired them to get one in English
emoticon

I have done it all online, no phone calls. Their English is limited but they get the job done and fast! It takes 8 weeks to get personalized bands from Foys. It takes these guys only two weeks. In fact they are made and shipped in about 3 days. The rest of the time is due to overseas shipping.

Another important benefit I forgot to mention is they have three sizes to choose from. The smallest size is what we call a size 8. Those would be for Gaditanos, Marcheneros, Picas, Horseman etc. If you are banding bigger birds such as Laudinos, Jiennense, Granadinos, get the largest size. It looks like the sizes are in the area of 8 - 9

If you use your own picture, he will charge a little more. Make sure the picture background contrasts with band background color you choose. It would be best to have a full body shot of the bird, not a group shot. The band picture is going to be very small, and you want as much detail showing as possible.

Allan what is the approximate cost per 50 in US dollars. I have been to the site and will probably get some but don't understand the cost in Euro's.

It looks like the cost in Euros for 50 bands including the shipping is 30.50.. or .61 per band. That's without the extras such as custom picture and consecutive numbering.
