Laser Etching: Material is etched with the laser. The lines are etched into the surface of the material, deep enough that you can feel it with your finger nail. On anodized and colored aluminum the metal with change color from the base color to white, thus providing a high contrast character.
Laser marking: Available on Plastic Materials. The characters are marked onto the surface of the material. With this method the desired result is a bold contrasting character. The characters are dark gray (near black in most cases).

Laser etched bar coded tags are designed to perform in a wide variety of conditions. Laser etched bar codes perform differently than printed bar codes because they are physically etched or infused into the surface of the material. It is always best to determine if your scanner will acceptably read the tags before and after submitting them to your specific environmental conditions. Depending on the bar code scanner or imager, you may get better results scanning at an upward angle, not straight on. For your convenience, we pass on our bar code equipment discounts to our customers and distributors. Please keep us in mind if you are in need of any equipment or would like to demo a scanner. Pricing is determined by the cycle time required to produce the image on the tag. Therefor, the larger the image, the higher the cost. Because each job is unique, we do quote each one individually.
