At Big City Manufacturing, we offer engraved plastic tags, nameplates, and phenolic labels in a variety of shapes, sizes, and plastic material since our company began in 1976. Suitable for a wide range of uses, our engraved plastic tags are available in any size needed to meet your application.
Our plastics range from 1/32” to 1/8” thick and are 2 ply (meaning the material has a core that is 1 color and a top piece that is another color). Different materials for our engraved plastic tags are available for harsh environments or indoor use.
Both stock and custom plastic tags can be engraved with a wide variety of type styles, simple logos and graphics. Engraving depth and text size requirements (typically for ASTM specification) can be met as well.
Our phenolic labels and tags are manufactured with UV resistant plastic, offering protection from weathering and corrosion due to outdoor elements. Additionally, our plastic tags, labels, and phenolic nameplates provide unmatched resistance to scratching, tearing, and marring.
Common terms often used to reference plastic engraved tags include; phenolic, Bakelite, fibrous board, Gravoply, laminate, 2-ply, 3- ply and plastic. All terms are relatively correct in describing this acrylic-based material that offers a variety of overlays and thickness options.
Although phenolic is not as widely used in the tags and signage industry today, we are comfortable knowing that if you request phenolic for your nameplates or labeling needs, we will be ready to supply that type of specific, resin-based material, unless we believe we have another suggestion that will better suit your requirements.
