At Metal Marker we provide nearly every metal tag solution on the market. One of our most versatile processes is MetalPhoto.


The MetalPhoto process uses a special photosensitive anodized aluminum material.

This gives us the ability to embed your design directly under an anodic layer of aluminum to provide outstanding durability.


Shape & Size

Photo anodized tags are made exact to your specifications.

Need a unique size or shape? We can make it!

We produce a large range of tag sizes, shapes, or thicknesses to meet your requirements. We will work with you to create the perfect tag for your usage.

Add holes to hang your tag from a wire or mount them directly with screws.

We can also add industrial grade adhesive backing for an easy peel-and-stick application.


With our photo anodizing process, we can add ANY information to your tags. This includes text, numbers, logos, and even images.

Need something different on every tag? We can add serialized numbers or variable information on each nameplate.


Want to use your tags for asset tracking? What about IUID tags?

MetalPhoto features the ability to add a barcode or QR code to your tag design.

Your custom information is stored in the code and accessible via a quick scan.

Add Color

The anodization process allows for a solid color to be added to the aluminum material. A colored background makes your tags stand out and has a wide range of uses.

Many organizations use this ability to color code their equipment, valves, or machinery.

Keep in mind that this process is only capable of creating a black design. However, you could also use a black background with your design showing up as the natural aluminum color (or the same hue as a colored background).


MetalPhoto is used by nearly every industry under the sun. There are such a wide range, but here are just a few examples:

  • Energy
  • Manufacturing
  • Oil & Gas
  • Aerospace
  • Construction
  • Military
  • And Many More!


MetalPhoto is one of the most durable processes we offer. It is made to be used in the toughest industrial environments.

Anodized aluminum is a highly durable, lightweight material. In addition, it is tough against weathering and is resistant to corrosion.

One of the things that makes photo anodization so unique is that the design is not just topical ink like screen printing. Instead, it is protected between layers of aluminum. As such, it is not able to be easily scratched or scraped off.

It is rated for 20+ years in outdoor environments. This includes wear & tear, weather, water, heat, and more.
