How to Mark Model and Serial Plates Yourself

Companies everywhere often order their model and serial plates pre-marked, but there are a few that find such tags to be somewhat difficult to work with due to how they run their business. If you are one of those companies who need these tags for your merchandise but want to be able to have some freedom in marking these with what you need, there are ways for you to be able to do so.

You can order your tags with some parts unmarked, particularly the parts where the model number and serial number are found. These can be left blank and your company can add in these parts later with the help of a few methods and devices. The reason why some companies choose to have these tags come with empty spaces is for them to be able to use the same design tags for any and all products without having to worry about using the wrong tags on anything.

How can you mark these empty spaces with your model and serial numbers? Some companies have reservations when it comes to marking blank spaces with these very important details particularly if their marking method is one that can be easily erased or replaced. Writing on these with permanent markers or even silk screening will open these up to problems like erasures and the like.

In order for you to ensure that your model and serial numbers do not get tampered with or gets erased accidentally or otherwise, you should mark these with the use of methods that leave imprints that are difficult to alter or cannot be easily erased. You will also need a marking method and tools that can help you do these on your own, without having these done ahead of time or when you order these.

Your solution to this dilemma? Stamping tools that can be used on any kind of metal nametag. There are a number of hand operated stamping and embossing tools that you can use to create your own model and serial number imprints on your metal tags. These include those stamping tools that require the use of a mallet for marking and those that have their own stamping equipment that will allow you to mark these tags easily.

There are also marking equipment that help you create the entire serial and model numbers before you stamp these tags, and some that require you to stamp each letter and number on these nameplates individually. Whichever tool you choose, you will find that tagging these nameplates with the necessary information can be done by hand and can be made whenever needed. This gives you the chance to use the same tag for all of your model and serial plate needs without having to pre-order ahead of time.
