WE’RE IT! ™
Known as ‘tags’ in many industries, also known as badges, labels, or placards depending on geography, industry, and dialect. No matter the term, we do them. A lot of them. Millions of them since 1997.
Custom Stainless Steel Tags and Plates
We can create stainless steel customized tags and plates to fit nearly any need. We can laser etch, acid etch, screen print or rotary engrave the image or text that you require. We can also apply these processes to specialty items such as boom angle indicators. If you need help determining which method to use, we are happy to guide you through the selection process.
Custom Aluminum Tags & Plates
We can create aluminum customized tags and plates to fit nearly any need. Tags and plates can either be acid etched, screen printed, rotary engraved, sublimated, or we can apply a vinyl overlay. If you are unsure of the method you need, we can assist in helping you determine which method will work best for your requirements.
Custom Acrylic Tags
We use high-quality Rowmark engravable plastics that are UV stable and suitable for exterior use. These materials can be used to create interior signage, control panels, control system tags, and safety signage. Acrylic customized tags can be either surface or reverse engraved, with a matte, glossy, or textured finish. They are available in most colors and sized up to 24″ x 48″ at either 1/16″ or 1/8″ thickness. The shapes, corners, and mounting holes on the product are nearly limitless and customized to your specifications. This material can be rotary engraved or laser etched to your specifications. To mount your custom engraved product, we provide a 3M™ adhesive. This urethane foam tape is 1/32″ thick and features a high-shear acrylic adhesive with high-temperature resistance for use in extreme conditions.
Custom Phenolic, Lamacoid and Traffolyte Plastic Tags
These materials are less frequently used. However, they can be manipulated in the same manner as acrylic. The terms ‘phenolic’, ‘lamacoid’, and ‘traffolyte’ are sometimes used generically to identify ‘engraved tags’. True phenolic is very brittle—it flakes and scratches easily—and is not UV stable, making it unsuitable for external use.
Custom Zinc Tags
Zinc plates feature a textured painted background with a silver, gold, or copper surface. The surface is etched for exterior signage and plaques, creating a contrast between the background and the metallic surface. These plates are available in .064″, .125”, and .153″ thickness.
Custom Magnesium Tags
Magnesium plates feature a textured background with a silver, gold, or copper surface. The surface is etched, creating a contrast between the text and the metallic surface. These plates are available in .064″,.118″, .153”, and .250″ thickness, and only for use on interior surfaces.
Custom Brass Tags
Brass plates can be screen printed or acid etched and are available in thicknesses of .020″, .040″, .062″,and .125″. Brass can be rotary engraved for use as valve and instrument tags. Also available in copper and nickel silver finishes.
Custom Tyvek Tags
Tyvek Tags are made of a durable spun-bonded olefin material, which can be supplied blank or printed to any color. They are tear-proof and weatherproof, making them suitable for exterior use in temperatures not to exceed 140°F.
Custom Vinyl Tags
Vinyl Tags are made of a durable, thick 0.15mm matte, vinyl plastic. They are tear-proof, oilproof, and weather-proof, making them suitable for outdoor use or manufacturing environments in which temperatures remain between -20 to 175°F. Fluorescent colors are also available.
Custom Cardstock Tags
Cardstock Tags are made from thick cardstock for indoor use. They are an economical and convenient way to label equipment and/or areas of your facility. We can handle your printing needs in-house, or we can ship the tags blank. Hole reinforcements are available.
