Plate Tags for Fall/Winter 2022

August 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, we will have a limited selection of what plate tag tag styles will be available. This is our busiest time of the year for these shapes, so by limiting our selection to the most popular styles, we will be able to create better lead times for our customers. If you still need one of the tag styles not on our selected list, they will still be available for a one-time $50.00 charge per order.

Wet Tumbled Stainless Steel Tags with 1 Hole

Wet tumble is recommended for stainless steel tags that are going to be handled frequently. Stainless steel can have a rough edge, and wet tumbling is an extra feature that we offer to remove the sharp edges. If a tag has 2 holes, it is most likely being riveted/screwed onto something. This means it won’t really be handled, and it is ok to have rough edges. But, if a tag has 1 hole, this means it most likely will be dangling from something, where people are more likely to grab the tag. Or, if a stainless steel tag has no holes where it is going to be treated like a coin, or token, this would be another example of where we would recommend wet tumbling. Removing the rough edges from stainless steel tags will help ensure that anyone handling the tags won’t scratch their hands on the rough metal sides of the tags.

While wet tumbling does remove the rough edges on stainless steel, it can cause some scratching. You can see examples of wet tumbled laser etched tags here. Examples of wet tumbled stamped tags can be seen here. If you have any questions, or would like a sample of a wet tumbled tag to test out for your application, please contact us at 859-261-2035 or [email protected].
