Security Barcode Labels


  • Destructible material tears apart if removal is attempted, deterring theft or unauthorized asset transfer
  • Unique coating aids in destruction of label and protects bar code and/or copy from cleaning and mild abrasion
  • Virtually impossible to remove in one piece

Secure valuable assets and deter theft with Metalcraft’s Security Barcode Labels!

Made from a destructible material that tears apart if someone tries to remove it, these labels offer customers a unique way to protect their property. The coating featured on these labels not only aids in the destruction of the label but also protects the barcode and/or copy from cleaning as well as mild abrasion. Add a barcode and/or human-readable number to the label and use it as a part of an overall asset tracking system.

Available with or without a barcode, Metalcraft’s Security Barcode Labels are produced using our digital printing process, which shows off even the most detailed logos, type and artwork. Custom spot colors and four-color processing are also available at no additional charge.
