What Are Asset Tags?

Metal asset labels are used to identify, track, and manage items in a variety of industries and applications. Most commonly, these tags are used to track inventory within a business. This could be things like equipment, materials, or a finished product.

By utilizing custom asset tags, businesses can simplify their internal record-keeping to be more organized internally while also continuing to offer support for their products after they are sold. Many of our metal tags are made from anodized aluminum, but materials can vary depending on the application.

What our metal labels offer that others don’t is long-lasting durability and legibility. If a piece of machinery is outdoors for multiple years, other asset management solutions may deteriorate and be hard to read. Our labels have proven to last over 20 years and still be just as strong and readable as the day they were made.

What Industries Use Our Asset Tags?

Our tags are versatile, durable, and able to withstand the high temperatures of industrial settings. That being said, these tags have found use in many different settings with many different niche applications. If you need a customized metal asset tags solution, we’re confident we can make it for you.

Here are some of the industries that we regularly support:

Metal Barcode Tags

One of the most popular methods of asset tracking is utilizing a barcode label scanning system. We produce metal barcode labels that are compatible with any type of inventory control system your organization uses.

  • QR code tags ability to store large amounts of information Scan with your smartphone or barcode readers
  • Coupled with asset tracking software for the biggest impact

Data Matrix Codes frequently used for tracking Military Unique Identification Tags (UID)

Numbered Tags

Implementing a barcode scanning system isn’t the right fit for every organization. Whether you prefer to keep things simple with basic metal signage, or just don’t want to invest in barcode technology, we offer a more straightforward solution. 

From machinery to utility poles, our serialized number asset tags are used to track and manage inventory across the country. These tags are relied upon for inspections, tracking, servicing, and more. Numbering your inventory is still considered effective asset tracking.

Inventory Management

Many organizations need to keep track of inventory levels. This may include simply monitoring stock levels, or even automatic reordering systems when quantities get low. By using a scanning system, the inventory control process becomes considerably easier. This can be beneficial for insurance reasons, inventory valuation, and more.

This can be beneficial for insurance reasons, inventory valuation, and more.

Theft Prevention

In addition to asset management, throwing a metal tag on your expensive tools and equipment can help to prevent tamper attempts. A simple “property of…” marker can deter someone from sneaking off with that new company drill. Labeling your equipment is a fast and simple way to help prevent unwanted use or theft. 

Custom labels can also provide contact information should a tool or component go missing or end up in the wrong hands. For example, a construction site with many contractors may result in equipment mix-ups. By marking your gear with security labels, the likelihood of loss is much lower.

Photo Anodization for Foil Asset Tags

One of our most popular processes for foil tags is photo anodization. This process seals your design beneath an anodic layer of anodized aluminum, providing outstanding durability (20+ years outdoors). 

For aluminum labels, it is hard to beat photo anodization. The durable tag markings it produces are high quality, easy to scan, and won’t easily wear off if exposed to the elements or harsh environment. This process also allows for more than just barcodes, as it can include custom logos, designs, and more. 

Anodized aluminum labels can be attached directly to physical assets using permanent adhesive.


For organizations looking to use serialized number tags for inventory management or equipment marking, we provide custom metal embossing. This process creates highly durable raised characters in the material. These tags are sometimes preferred due to their simplicity, and extreme durability

The raised metal can hold up to even the harshest industrial conditions. The embossing process allows for top-level durability, with upwards of 20+ years of usage in most environments for marking physical assets. Organizations turn to the embossing process when they need the utmost durability while maintaining easy-to-read id tags. Destructible ID tags are not particularly useful in hard-hitting industries.

Digital and Screen Printing

We also offer printing methods, whether it be on metal asset tags or custom decals. One major advantage to printing is we can include a full-color logo or additional branding, alongside a barcode label or data matrix. Vinyl or polyester tags are less durable, but provide a good alternative in some situations such as GHS asset labeling. These ID labels attach with adhesive backing, just like applying stickers.
