Default Hand-stamped tags

So I've been mulling this over for a while... thought I would put the feelers out and see what people thought.
My sister has been doing some hand-stamped jewelry for over a year now. She made a really pretty necklace in memory of Happy. While looking for stamps, I found some really cute ones that I would kind of like... to put on tags for the dogs. Of course, they are kind of expensive to buy just to make some tags for my dogs, so that leads to the thought of "Well, maybe I could make tags for other people!"

I wouldn't really be intending to compete with Fetching Tags, who makes amazing stuff that is well worth the money; something cheaper, cute, customized, and if you, say, lost it in the lake, you wouldn't be totally crushed because it cost you $35! I would probably just be using pre-cut discs and shapes.

But then I think there's about a BAJILLION tag makers already out there. None that I have seen using the stamps I want, of course, but I'm just wondering if it would be a worthwhile investment or if it's a bad idea because it would be white noise? I don't make a ton out of my Etsy store right now but it certainly pays for itself, my webhosting, my domain names, and some other fun things. I'm not planning to get rich, but I also don't want to waste a bunch of time and have people just go "oh ANOTHER tag maker. Meh."

Any thoughts?
