What is AlumaMark?
Introduced in 2001, AlumaMark® is the only CO2 laser markable material that produces photo-quality images on real metal without etching, engraving, or adding chemicals.
AlumaMark is specialized aluminum that may be imaged or marked using a
CO2 laser. Unique among laserable substrates, AlumaMark allows one to
create black, positive marks on silver, gold, bronze, brass, or colored
backgrounds. Designed so that it may be marked using low power settings,
AlumaMark is used to produce Nameplates, Name Badges, Plaque and
Trophy Plates, Labels, Interior Signage, and more.
Because AlumaMark is not etched or engraved, but rather marked through a
thermal reaction with the heat of a laser, it is possible to create lighter marks
and halftone shades. This makes AlumaMark ideal for creating photograph
and detailed artwork reproductions.

Why Use AlumaMark?
AlumaMark is not another painted metal or metalized plastic. Real metal means higher perceived value and higher profits.
Because AlumaMark uses a thermal marking process rather than an engraving or cutting action, it allows for very high detail and even shades of grey and brown to produce the most striking photo & graphic reproductions!

Unlike other metal marking methods, AlumaMark comes ready to mark – no sprays, tapes, or additional processing required, saving you time and ensuring consistent results for every item you make. Plus, AlumaMark can be marked using any CO2 laser, including those from the companies listed below.
