Going out to an entertainment event is one of our oldest cultural traditions and has stayed just as relevant today. Even with the ability to instantly watch live shows and sports from the comfort of our couches, we still crave the experience of spectating.

From movies to sporting events to musicals and even comedy shows; seeing a performance in-person is a different experience.

Organizing a group of thousands to all sit in an assigned seat seems like a logistical nightmare. However, with the use of seating tags and nameplates, identifying the correct seat as a patron is quick and easy.



The main function for seating tags is to assist event-goers in finding their correct seat. Clear and easily visible marking can make the difference between a frustrating experience and a positive one.

Everyone who goes to events has had that experience when you can’t find your seat at the venue and you miss the opening pitch or annoy everyone trying to see the show.

As a venue your job is to make your patrons as happy as possible so they will return to the venue time and time again.

By making the process of getting seated seamless, event-goers will have a favorable opinion about the experience.


Longevity is a key concern for seating nameplates. This is especially the case for outdoor concert venues and ball parks. If the markings on your seats are faded away, they are not effective at all.

Ensuring your tags are durable enough for the application is crucial for an effective identification solution.

Types of Venues

There are too many types of venues to name which rely on this type of identification for their seating. Some of the most common examples include:

  • Ballparks
  • Football Stadiums
  • Basketball Arenas
  • Theaters
  • Movie Theaters
  • Concert Venues

Marking Processes for Seating Tags

Photo Anodization

The biggest factor regarding tags used in this industry is will they hold up to the potential exposure to the elements as well as wear.

A marking process is worthless if it will easily wear away. Seats are built to last, and must be usable for decades if not longer.

Photo anodization eliminates any of these concerns with its 20+ year outdoor durability. The process embeds the design underneath a protective aluminum layer, protecting it from the weather or other harmful elements.

This process also allows for the ability to add full logos or other designs. This can feature a team logo, stadium information, or even a security phone number that guests can call. The possibilities are endless.


The stamping process offers one of the highest level of durability for marking processes. Designs can be any type of basic text or number. Custom stamps can be produced if a logo is required.

These indented tags are more than ready to hold up against constant wear from the environment and from guests.


We rely on entertainment to improve the overall quality of our lives. We flock to sports venues and theaters to take a break from the stresses and monotony of everyday life.

Making this experience as easy as possible makes for a better day for guests. Seat nameplates are a simple but effective method for improving this experience.
