Stamping and Embossing are reliable solutions that indent or raise characters in the blank metal tag itself. Embossed metal tags are a popular solution when durability is a larger factor – such as pole tags where the tags are subject to the weather year-round. The embossing process also allowed you to easily create duplicate or sequentially numbered tags for a lower cost.
The photo anodization process embeds information under a protective layer in the aluminum material. It is fully customizable and includes the option for barcodes on tags.
These solutions are highly durable (rated for 20+ years outdoors). Our metal labels are heavy duty and made to hold up to the grit and grime of harsh environments.
Other processes include engraving, etching, or screen printing onto the blank tag.
Engraving and etching provide highly-customizable labeling options for whatever your metal label may be. Engraving leaves deep cuts in the metal plate for visibility, while etching can provide a solid color fill.
For custom metal tags that require full-color designs, screen printing is a great choice. These processes are excellent options depending on your environment.
One of the most important factors when it comes to identification or inspection tags is durability.
Our metal tags are made with a variety of materials and processes to best fit the application.
Make sure you know what type of environment the plate will be used in – this is a major factor in your product labeling selection.
In addition, knowing your attachment method is also important. For example attaching your tags with bolts or fasteners will require your tag to have included holes.
Other processes include engraving, etching, and screen printing.
Engraving and etching provide highly-customizable identification tag options. Engraving leaves deep cuts in the material for visibility, while laser-etched metal labels can provide a solid color fill.
For applications that require full-color designs, screen printing is a great choice. These processes are excellent options depending on your environment.
METAL TAG MATERIALS
- Aluminum tags
- Stainless Steel tags
- Cold Rolled Steel tags
- Brass tags
Custom metal tags are used in nearly every industry and application imaginable. Anodized aluminum tags are customizable with any image, design, or information. This is often used for asset tag marking.
These metal labels are great for equipment tags by adding barcodes. The high durability of using metal labels means your ID solution will hold up in harsh environments needed for heavy-duty applications. Applications with exposure to the elements such as valve tags are perfectly suited for durable metal materials.
Industries such as aerospace rely on metal tags for their identification needs where plastic tags would not hold up. Aircraft placards are vital tag options for safety, as well as meeting required aviation standards.
