The stamping process indents your data into the metal material. This produces a highly durable recessed design.
In order to stamp custom information into a metal, a custom stamp with your information must be produced. This can include a logo or design, as well as additional characters.
Keep in mind this will add setup time and additional cost.
Embossing presses the metal upwards, creating raised text. This is not only highly visible, but incredibly durable as well.
Serialized (numbered) tags can be made using this process. In addition, variable data may be added using an embossing machine.
Another common option is metal engraving. This process provides a high level of customization. Engraving creates long-lasting deep cuts in the material.
The downside to engraving is that it is a very time consuming process. It has to cut out each character one at a time. Due to the slow run time, the cost for engraved tags is often significantly higher than other processes.
There are two main methods to the etching process. Laser etching uses a high power laser, while chemical etching is a specialized process which removes only the desired areas of the design in the metal material.
Color may be added to etched designs with a colorized fill. Etched tags have moderate durability, but any color infill is likely to deteriorate if subjected to wear and tear. It is unlikely to last the lifetime of the tag.
Here are just a few examples of the uses for stainless steel tags:
- Telephone pole tags

- Asset tracking
