Stamping ProcessStamping Process

Stamped tags are created in a similar fashion as embossed plates. This produces either raised or recessed text, designs, or copy on such plates, depending on what your specification are. This particular marking method is used on military dog tags, which are made out of stainless steel, and on serial number plates, which can also be made using stainless steel, bronze, brass or aluminum plates.

By stamping into the metal with a steel type, the characters needed for the nameplate is produced. These tags are almost as durable as etched plates, but without having to spend as much. For this process, the copy is generally set with existing steel type from our inventory, but a special die can be produced if other typestyles are needed. For special dies, please contact us so we can have this specially made for your stamped metal nameplate production.

Stamping can also be done by hand with the use of any of our readily available hand-held stamping devices. These marking devices are often used to create unique alphanumeric combinations that can be added to asset tags, model and serial plates, and inventory tags. Hand-stamping can be done with detail presses, typewriter-type stamping devices, and dies that need to be struck with a hammer in order to create the recessed designs and details that you need.
