Engineers, Electricians and Contractors
In the manufacture of plastic tags, lamicoid labeling and signage we have become a resource and supply for professionals and trades men and women seeking a high quality product, reasonably priced and expeditiously prepared. Our customer base to date includes numerous engineering firms, electricians, HVAC, building controls, cable and pipeline, plumbing and heating, solar installers, manufacturing, transport, warehousing, and more. Our tags can be found in the air, on and below ground , on water, and below the waves as well. We are easily reachable by phone, email, fax, or cart and will ship to your office or site location at the speed of your choice. We are a custom fabricator whose intention is to create tags to suit your needs rather than maneuver you into accepting our stock items.
A sizable portion of our customer base are electrical installers. Typically small companies that need one job of circuits, switches and panels labeled. Many of these are repeat customers who have used our products for years. We offer a consistent and reproducible product for legend plates and engraved identification tags. Cable installers usually order cable tags that have two quarter inch holes left and right which get connected with pull ties to wiring bundles. Other electrical and electronics installers prefer a one hole hanging tag. The new SafeTmark material works well in sensitive applications and where fire safety is a consideration. We also stock phenolic for this purpose. Airline manufacturers use small round tags for their wiring harnesses.
Solar installers are increasingly using our services since the wording on photovoltaic systems warning signs vary between systems and must be custom made to suit. Solar systems tied to the grid need more warning signs than those that are free-standing and off grid. Locations of breakers are typically unique from house to house. Custom engraved signs and tags are perfect for such applications. These long life signs hold up well outdoors especially when AUTO tape, which is used to put trim on cars, is used as the attachment method.
Simple orders can best be transmitted by email or our cart. We do not take orders over the phone. Larger or more complex orders and quote requests should be sent with detailed drawings and text in Excel spreadsheets, if possible. We offer "Quick Quotes" for those not wanting to enter all their company information into the "Formal Quote" form. Often on larger orders or where we are trying to match existing tags, "proofs" are emailed for pre-approval to ensure our customer’s needs are being met. Samples are available upon request for large jobs.
When you have long lists of text where each tag is different, text files are preferred. Excel spreadsheets with one tag per row is our desired format. Use as many columns as you want lines on that tag. A three-line tag will use three columns. Please note that for us to work from a fax or some PDFs, we have to retype in the text, and will charge accordingly. Excel, Word documents and some new PDFs give us workable text.
Typically we use engraver’s fonts designed with machine paths pre-set for engraving instead of perimeter vectors or bitmaps. However we can create custom machine paths for fonts that are traditionally used as printing fonts. The same process of machine paths creation can be used for designs and logos for more elaborate signage. This typically incurs some additional cost due to layout and design time requirements. On engraving fonts we use decimal point measurements for letter height. We can achieve two decimal points of accuracy. (The old system offer four decimal points.)
Small orders are generally shipped within 48 hours of receipt. Larger orders are completed and shipped commensurate with manufacturing time estimations agreed to in advance. Tags are packaged sequentially as ordered and in labeled units not only for inventory purposes but for ease of sorting during installations. We can also split orders and send to different locations if requested. We extend ourselves to the utmost to provide a top quality product, reasonably priced and delivered as expeditiously as is possible.
We produce plastic tags, lamicoid labels, and signs based upon your orders and your assessment of your needs. Due to broad variability of circumstances, we can only make recommendations based upon your evaluations. We guarantee the manufacture of products as they have been ordered. If there is premature failure of product due to deficiencies in materials it will be replaced. However we cannot ensure that everything we produce will endure in every occasion and under all conditions. That is specifically the responsibility of our customers who are familiar with their needs and the environments to which our products will be subjected. Additionally terminology is important. Do you really need a true phenolic or is that term only being used generically to imply a modern day acrylic lamicoid. Do you need an insulator or a conductor for static dispersal? Our business depends upon customer’s satisfaction and repeat orders. We strive to do our utmost to satisfy our customer’s needs. Add us to your resource list and we will do our best to make the finishing touches on your endeavors have a long lasting professional look and feel. We have been in business 35 years and have many long term repeat customers.
