National Band & Tag has a new laser machine that now allows us to successfully laser etch on brass tags. When placing your laser etched brass tag order, you now have the choice of a “frosted” surface. “Frosting” means removing the shine that brass has, to make it easier to read. The examples below on the left with a more yellow look are frosted, and the darker brown samples are regular brass. Brass is hard to take a picture of because of how shiny the material is. The shine will not work in certain environments, so for an additional charge, we can remove it for you. This allows you to have all the benefits of brass material, without the shine.
Not sure if brass tags will work in your environment? Contact us for tag samples to test before you buy. If you have any questions, comment below and our in-house laser etching expert will respond. Learn more about “frosting” on stainless steel and aluminum material here.
