Stylemark Polycarbonate Barcode Labels


  • Flexible polycarbonate with a unique texture and non-reflective finish
  • Ideal for highly abrasive environments
  • Roll format standard
  • Digital printing process provides for greater print capability with detailed logos or special designs
  • Subsurface printing protects label from caustics/acids

Metalcraft’s Premium StyleMark Labels use a flexible polycarbonate material with a textured, non-reflective finish.

Premium StyleMark Labels look great and work even better. The subsurface printing process used to produce these labels combined with the polycarbonate material makes these labels extremely resistant to abrasion. Subsurface printing also protects the label from caustics/acids while the specially designed adhesive provides adherence to plastic surfaces and can withstand temperatures up to 250°F short-term.

The durable, yet attractive nature of Premium StyleMark Labels makes them the ideal option for Original Equipment Manufacturers who need a label that will withstand tougher environments and still be able to proudly display a company logo. Our digital printing process combined with unlimited color choices, including four-color process, show off even the most detailed logos, type and artwork.

Potential Applications for Premium Stylemark Polycarbonate Barcode Labels

Asset Tracking – the barcode and human readable ID number on Premium StyleMark Labels can be used to track information about the asset the label is adhered to, i.e., laptops, furniture, containers, pallets, equipment and more.

For more information check out our case studies, Head of the Class or Tracking Traveling IT.

OEM Product Identification – the barcode and/or product identification number on Premium StyleMark Labels can be used for tracking purposes such as warranty and service information and typically contain one or more of the following: model number, serial number, or part number. Customers use the identification plate on products they produce and sell.

Work-in-Process – the barcode and/or identification number on Premium StyleMark Labels can identify a “batch” OR “lot” of product or just simply identify each product as it travels through the production process.

Bar Code & Serialization Barcode and human-readable equivalent is digitally printed – providing excellent clarity and easy scanning. Code 39 is the standard symbology with a range of 2.7 to 9.4 CPI (characters per inch). Optional linear and 2D symbologies available. Although this product is primarily marketed as a bar code product, we can produce it with human-readable numbers only or unserialized.
Label Copy The label copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs
Colors Standard colors include black, red, yellow, green, dark blue, orange, purple or blue. Custom spot colors are also available at no additional charge. Due to contrast needed for the bar code scanner, all bar codes are black.
Standard Adhesive High performance adhesive particularly suited for a wide range of polyolefin and other low-surface energy materials (powderpaints, etc.).
Sizes 1.5" x .75"; 2" x 1"; 2" x .75"
Packaging Shipped on convenient rolls with scrap matrix removed for ease of removal. Cartons are clearly marked to indicate serial numbers of labels.
