Designing Asset Tags for Proper Asset Management

WHAT IS AN ASSET?

Asset: “property owned by a person or company, regarded as having value and available to meet debts, commitments, or legacies.”

WHY DO ASSETS NEED IDENTIFICATION?

Some businesses may want a simple asset tag that has their logo and “Property of” on it to show that the asset belongs to them. Other businesses may want a more complex tag with a serial number or barcode so that they can track the asset. Asset tags are an important part of asset management. Asset tags can help to track an asset’s location, discourage theft, show ownership, track maintenance, repairs, and more. All of these reasons make Asset Tags valuable to both large and small businesses who want to have a proper asset management system in place.

 

design asset tags for your asset management needs

DESIGNING ASSET TAGS – WHAT TO CONSIDER:

  1. Where is your tag going to go on the asset, and where is the asset going to be? This will affect the size and shape of the tag you need, as well as the material. We have metal tags for flat surfaces, labels for curved surfaces, or flexible plastic tags. If your asset is going to be in a harsh environment, a heavy-duty metal tag will last longer than a thin plastic tag.
  2. How are you going to attach your tag to the asset? This will determine if you need holes, slots, or adhesive backing. This will also determine hole/slot size and placement on the tag.
  3. What info do you need the tag to relay? Logo, barcode, phone number, serial number, text, etc. are all things we can customize your tag with, but it’s up to you the tell us what information and numbering you want.

Upgraded Well Permit Tags

New, Improved, QR Coded Well Permit Tags

Well Tags need to last outside in harsh environments year-round to make sure wells are properly identified. The old DNREC Well Permit Tag featured on top is plain aluminum and is stamped. The Well Permit Tag on the bottom is UV Stable Black Aluminum. On this tag, we use a laser to etch the text, which creates a highly visible white text on the black background, which won’t fade away. The new UV Stable Black Aluminum tag has a QR Code on the tag. This allows anyone with a smartphone to scan the QR Code and go to the Department of Natural Resources’ website.


Well permit tags with a QR code

Every well is required to have a Well Tag (in most states), to ensure a clean and adequate supply of underground drinking water. There are programs in place to prevent contamination of aquifers from improper well construction, drilling, or abandonment. Before drilling, a licensed well driller must first obtain a permit. The unique ID number on the Well Tag makes obtaining important information about the well easier.

Our Well Permit Tags are customizable in shape, material, and layout, so you can get the exact identification you need. We offer custom slot sizes for your tags so you can strap these tags onto the well. Available slot sizes are 1/8″ X 9/16″ (for 1/2″ strapping), 1/4″ X 7/8″ (for 3/4″ strapping) and 1/4″ X 1-1/8″ (for 1″ strapping). Click here to view more samples of Well Permit Tags.

Asset Labels

Asset Labels are custom laser etched and custom shaped with a laser. These heavy-duty labels are made from a military grade 3M™ 7847 polyacrylic matte black stock. Labels can be cut to any shape or size (up to 4” x 7” inches). Each label can be customized with logos, graphics, barcodes (linear, 2D data matrix, or QR Code), text, and sequential or custom numbering.

This material is great for barcoded labels because of the high contrast, easy readability, durability, and flexibility. Some of the high-performance features of these labels include:

  • Rugged durability
  • Ability to conform to curved or uneven surfaces
  • Resistant to thermal shock and extreme temperatures
  • Resistant to sunlight exposure
  • Resistant to chemicals

Make sure that all your equipment, assets and inventory are properly identified, tracked, and accounted for. Serialized asset tags will help with asset and inventory management. Send us a sketch of the label you need to tags@nationalband.com along with the quantity for a free quote.
