Preprinted metal tags

Print-to-Order Metal Tags with Text and Barcodes

InfoSight Corporation has been putting barcodes on metal tags for over 20 years.

Our preprint service started when a customer asked us for a tag that forklift drivers could see without getting down from their seat. Next they asked if we would print those tags so it wouldn't disrupt their regular operations.

Since then InfoSight has become a leader in a highly specialized field: custom printed metal tags with text, images and barcodes, for use in places which destroy paper labels, plastic tags and directly applied inks or paints. Today we preprint 17 special purpose tags. Their range of use includes:


  • Extreme heat, including total immersion in molten zinc
  • Immersion in heated caustics and acids
  • Withstanding heavy abrasion
  • Enduring extended weathering
  • And surviving in maritime environments.

Usually, preprint customers have considered buying one of our printers, only to find preprints are more cost efficient. Our typical preprint buyer is an industrial operations manager or quality control director. They work in:

  • Steel and Wire Mills
  • Galvanizers
  • Product manufacturing
  • Water and power utilities
  • Pre-Cast Concrete yards
  • Metal fabrication shops
  • Chemical or petrochemical plants
  • Plant Maintenance companies
  • Forges
  • Repair Depots
  • Major Equipment Rental

Our tags are surprisingly adaptable. They are in use by off-shore oil rigs, military repair depots, medical device manufacturers, university medical schools… even a well know circus!

If your current tagging system isn't durable enough, please give us a call. We will:

  • Listen
  • Recommend a tag to fit your needs
  • Offer you free samples to confirm our tags will withstand your application
  • Help you design your tag
  • Explain how to email us your data
  • And take your payment through a secure online system.

Processing Custom Tags

Tags will be preprinted per your specifications, for both design and data.

We will create a tag layout for your approval before printing the order. You will receive a design proof by email. Tag production will not begin until the layout has been approved and payment has been received.

To include your logo or other images please provide us with a black and white version of the electronic file. The data to be printed on the tags should be delivered in an Excel file (please see Tutorial: How to prepare your data in a Microsoft Excel® Spreadsheet for InfoSight's Pre-Printed Metal Tag Service.) If a bar code is required, we will need to know the maximum length of the data to be embedded into the bar code, as well as the required bar code symbology.
