Make Your Own Signs, Labels, Decals … In Under Five Minutes.
WHAT IS ID-MARK?
ID-MARK® is a photosensitive, water processed imaging material for creating custom signs, labels, nameplates, and decals in less than five minutes.
ID-MARK is ideal for prototyping or on-site, short-run production of signs, labels, plaques and nameplates. Available in aluminum or plastic, each ID-MARK sheet comes pre-applied with high-performance pressure-sensitive adhesive for easy mounting and finishing. The result is custom, colorful, and chemical resistant identification that is quick and easy to produce on-site.
ID-MARK is ideal for indoor usage, and has an average outdoor life of 5-6 years with a protective overlaminate. Because ID-MARK is imaged with a simple exposure device and developed with water, it can be used at your location to produce nameplates, labels or signs where and when needed.
ID-MARK is also available in photo-luminescent and retro-reflective substrates that can be used for safety and emergency signs.
