Engraving Materials

We use top quality Engraving Sheet Stock to create our products. This is a durable, layered plastic sheet made from Acrylic. It is a modern alternative to Lamicoids or Phenolic. We indclude two sided tape.


Phenolic, Norplex, Micarta, Lamicoid or Lamacoid? Often customers ask for these materials. Most jobs are better suited to use plastic engraving stock.

  • Lamicoid or Lamacoid: A generic term that refers to a layered plastic material.
  • Phenolic: A layered material made with paper or fiber and resin. It is ridgid, brittle and has sharp edges. Indoor use only. Used in specific military and heavy industry applications. This term is often misused. If your RFQ calls for Phenolic, we may ask you to clarify.
  • Norplex, Micarta: Brand names for the above.
  • Acrylic Based Engraving Stock: The right choice for most applications. Flexible and easy to laser or machine. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Cost effective. Widely used in commercial and industrial facilities. Available from a variety of vendors in many colors.

How are they made

We provide custom engraved plastic labels. The plastic has two layers in different colors. The laser removes the top layer to expose the inner layer. The resulting product is durable and legible.

USA made CO2 lasers engrave our labels. Beware some trophy shops using older rotary tools. Our laser engraved labels look better. The faster engraving speed of the laser helps control costs and shorten lead time.

What is a Legend Plate?

A legend plate is a piece of plastic (plate) with engraved text (the legend). The engraved text provides greater wear resistance. They are used in industrial areas where printed labels may not last. Legend Plates are available in a variety of colors and sizes. Easy to customize with your choice of text. A peel and stick backing makes them easy to install.
