Since 1974 we’ve been dedicated to building our reputation for trusted permanent identification solutions created from Stainless Steel, Anodised Aluminium, Direct Laser Marking or Thermal Transfer.

From this well proven family of imaging processes, we create everything from foil thin barcoded asset labels and tags, heavy duty rating plates, to tamper proof certification stickers or even illustrated botanic labels and historic plaques including photographs. All tailored to be reliable when long term exposure to severe conditions is critical.

Follow the product selection guide below or give us a call or an email to discuss your project and how we can help. With a focus on building legacy customers, not sales, our Team gets the job done on time all the time.

At Metal Image you’ll get what it says on the tin – Durable Images Delivered with Passion and Precision. It’s what we do, and how we do it.
