Laser Etching Tags Using Your Data!
Data Transfer Instructions
Using our laser etching machines, we can etch or mark your data directly onto the tags in a wide variety of layouts. Additional text such as titles, prefixes and even your company logo can be added to the custom text to make the tag look the way you want it. You can layout the tag in nearly any configuration. If your data is formatted differently than what we require, we may be able to reformat it for you for an additional charge. If you have an example of how you want the tag formatted, please email the image to [email protected] or fax it to us at 800-261-8247. Questions about this? Give us a call 859-261-2035.
For non-sequential or custom data, the data can be sent to us via email ([email protected]) using the following format:
One continuous column of data saved as a MS-DOS.TXT (text) file. Filenames can be any logical name desired – just be sure to save it as a text file. Do not use leading spaces, imbedded carriage returns, delimiters or other characters that you do not want to appear on your tags. Please be sure to tell us what character height you would like for each line on your tags.
