Metal asset tags

Metal asset tags are made out of some of the toughest materials around, and since the printing on the tags is embedded in the metal, information on the tag will never fade or chip. These labels come in a variety of different thicknesses and are ideal for identifying and keeping track of valuable items, including bicycles, computers and outdoor equipment.

These labels come in a variety of colors and are easy to customize. A reputable tag or label retailer should always make this process a breeze — and offer an affordable price.

When choosing which label is best for you, be sure to consider what kind of item the label will be applied to, as well as where the item will be used and stored. You’ll also want to consider the shape of the item’s surface (for example, whether it’s flat or curved). If you’re looking for a label for an outdoor lawn mower, an AlumiGuard™ label is probably your best bet. But if you’re looking for a label for a power drill, you’ll probably want to go with a PlioGuard label instead.

AlumiGuard™

AlumiGuard Asset Tags

Tough enough to outlast chemicals and heat, AlumiGuard labels are perfect for items that are located in hazardous or outdoor environments. These labels feature three layers of materials, ensuring that it will stand up to the toughest conditions. The first layer is a thin, rigid sheet of aluminum. The image and text are embedded on the second layer. The top layer is clear and anodized, which makes the label resistant to chemicals and dirt. They can feature barcodes, numbers or just text, and a high-bond adhesive on the back of the label ensures that the tag will permanently adhere to most surfaces.
 
PlioGuard™

PlioGuard Asset Tags

Need an asset tag for a curved surface? Then PlioGuard™ labels are what you’re looking for — they’re made to conform to different shapes. Perfect for tools, microphones or other electronics, these tags are made out of annealed aluminum, which increases the label’s flexibility. They also feature embedded print that’s sealed between protective layers of aluminum, so whatever your barcode or text needs, your label will be legible for years to come. For labels that feature numbers, the digits are indented, making them permanent. While there are a variety of adhesives to choose from, all labels have a high-quality adhesive that will permanently bind to the label to the item of your choice.
