As far as I know, it's the same machine used to make the real deal, so I'd say there's a damn good chance it will. And I'm supposed to be working the dog tag machine, too...lol

ElCobra, HemiPowered, I will definitely do what I can to get those made up for ya...dunno if I'll be able to pre-make them, though.
