When you need engraved labels, material options usually include plastic, stainless steel or another metal like aluminum or brass, and are engraved with a combination of characters (letters, numbers or symbols) dictated by our customer.
Considerations for label material choice include whether the label will be placed in an indoors or outdoor environment, the requirement for the color of the label and the color of the lettering, the surface the engraved label – whether it be metal, plastic, glass, wood ceramic or another surface, and resiliency requirements in the job specification.
Plastic Labels Engraved
Because quality is so importing to all of us with Action Engraving, all of our labels are made from UV resistant plastic material at no extra charge, making them excellent for indoor or outdoor use.
In addition there are over a dozen color choices for engraved plastic labels. Our customers use our plastic labels for general manufacturing and labeling electrical systems, control consoles and many other types of signage.
Our plastic labels are a good fit for commercial and light industrial applications because they are more flexible than metal tags. We get the information to engrave on plastic labels from from job specs, spreadsheets, emails, and sometimes hand written.
Stainless Steel Engraved Tags
Our engraved stainless steel labels have a very high resistance to chemicals and can handle the solvents and abrasion of frequent wash downs either indoor or outdoors. The marking on engraved stainless steel can be black or paint filled with color, usually red.
Other Metal Labels Engraved
Engraved anodized aluminum labels are often used for identification in indoor environments. Engraved brass labels are more often used for outdoor purposes like hydraulic systems and marine use because brass labels better stand up to weather.
