Stainless Steel, Etch & Fill Enamel

April 28th, 2014 by

Stainless steel is an excellent material choice for tags and plates that need to be durable and maintain longevity.  Two options for stainless steel are “Etch” and “Etch and Fill”.

Shown below is an etched stainless steel plate.  Etching is a process in which chemicals remove layers of stainless steel.
