What Should You Engrave On Plastic Tags?

Engraving Nation Engraved Plates

You should engrave any custom image or text you want permanently displayed on plastic tags. Unlike other signs, name plates, or labels made from other materials, engraved plastic tags remain readable over time, because they’re ENGRAVED! When a laser head engraves plastic, it’s heating the material on the top in a designated pattern to reveal the color underneath. This leaves you with a permanent inscription engraved to plastic. The material is so specialized to the laser that it does not change in extreme temperatures, climates, environments, and near elements like electricity.

Plastic tags are used for all different things, from engraved plastic electrical panel labels, equipment tags, phenolic labels, to even wall plaques! The plastic we use works well in various environments and purposes. Even though these signs are SMALL, you can put BIG ideas on them! Engraved plastic tags have been used in so many creative projects that we can’t stress this enough!!

Is There Anything You Shouldn’t Engrave on Plastic?

Not really. Since laser engraving plastic is chemically engineered to be properly displaced lasers, its versatility and durability is vast. Engravable plastic is industrial grade and thoroughly tested to withstand extreme temperatures and environments. The only potential harm engraving plates can have is if you place engraved metal tags near electrical wires. As most metal plate are conductive to electricity, a metal tag reacting to electric can cause a misfire or machine malfunction, which can start a fire and hurt someone! This is even more so of the reason why we recommend ordering plastic tags, especially if the plate will be near live electrical wires. In any other scenario, if you see a metal engraved sign (e.g. aluminum, bronze, brass), it’s probably engraved that way for appearance.

Bronze, aluminum, brass, stainless steel, and copper are usually picked for their appearance. Custom brass, copper, and bronze plates look great on trophies and plaques, while aluminum complements industrial machinery and wall plaques nicely. Likewise, stainless steel looks great on appreciation plaques and employee recognition awards.

As well as laser engraved plastic, metallic materials can be laser cut into different shapes for different reasons. If you think it can be done, it probably can be. So now you know, what will you engrave next?
