  • Reduce unnecessary equipment purchases 

  • Discourage theft  

Understanding what the equipment you’re tracking goes through, the environment and different surfaces will help get your application the right asset management technology. And if the solution is not available now, we can customize and create one that is exactly right for you. These types of innovations are what make our IT solutions ID Made Better®.  

Metal Barcode Tags are ideal for customers who require permanent nameplates to stand up in harsh environments.

Metal Bar Code Nameplates combine reliability with the durability you have come to expect with any Metalcraft product. And now we’ve made them even easier to apply with a convenient break-away tab to assist with liner removal.

The 002” polypropylene Valumark label conforms to uneven and curved surfaces and adheres tightly to plastics that resist labels under moderate use. Subsurface digital printing eliminates lamination and keeps graphics bright when used, primarily, for indoor asset tracking.

Metalized Polyester Labels are polyester asset labels that have the appearance of expensive metal without the accompanying price tag. These silver polyester labels are digitally printed which allows for crisp, clean company logos as well as consistent, reliable barcode scans.

Durable .002" polyester Premium Polyester Labels adhere to uneven and curved metal and plastic assets. The .002” pressure-sensitive adhesive gives a strong bond. The subsurface, digital printing ensures barcode readability and crisp graphics.

Foil Bar Code Labels are ideal for customers who require a flexible label that will conform to most surfaces, yet will withstand chemicals, abrasion, solvents, and high temperatures.

Discourage theft and keep your property in tact with Metalcraft's Tamper Evident Labels. If someone attempts to remove the label, the word "VOID" is left behind on the surface of the asset and the back of the label.

Made from a flexible polycarbonate material with a textured, non-reflective finish, Premium Stylemark Labels look great and work even better.

This top-of-the-line polyester label features our thickest polyester combined with a .0035" thick adhesive.

ID Advantage labels are ideal for high volume applications in a mild-to-moderate environment. The optional .001" thick clear polyester over laminate provides additional protection to the bar code and/or copy.
