The Trace Mark identification stamp is a precision instrument that provides proof of ownership to individuals who wish to permanently identify their belongings, without defacing or devaluing them. Recommended by law enforcement agencies world wide & discussed in the book Loss Prevention and Security Procedures.
This is also an excellent tool for jewelry manufacturers who need to put a mark such as 14K, STERLING etc. on small items such as earrings, pendants or charms, where the larger, typical hammer stamps just won’t work. The Trace Mark stamp does not require a hammer! Simple hand pressure is all you need to make an impression.
Originally created for the home user to place a mark on their personal belongings, the Trace Mark stamp is also used world wide in major industries such as electronics, jewelry manufacturing, law enforcement, libraries, universities, medical, aerospace and more. Libraries and universities world wide are using the Trace Mark to discreetly mark rare books. Electronics and Automotive industries use the Trace Mark to stamp wiring harnesses, cables and other components. The Trace Mark is especially popular with watchmakers and clock makers as well!
The Trace Mark stamp permanently impresses your name, driver’s license or personal code with characters as small as .010 inches tall. This size is not visible until magnified, and there are larger sizes available to chose from. The largest size .5mm is just at the visible range, yet still very small. This seems to be the most popular Trace Mark size. Please note that the Trace Mark stamp is used for small marks. Its is not intended to create a mark that will “jump out” at the reader like an advertisement.
Almost invisible to the naked eye, the Trace Mark stamp, when used to identify valuables for security purposes passes unnoticed by thieves and is therefore not removed as so often happens with product serial numbers. In the event of a theft, however, the identifying mark left by the Trace Mark provides an indelible link to the recovery of your valuables.
Trace Mark’s curved tip makes it easy to use on both round and flat surfaces. Simple hand pressure and a roll over motion yields what appears to be a tiny scratch. Yet as little as 5X power magnification (included) reveals a clear, legible ID code that can be traced to the rightful owner.
Please bear in mind the 15 character limit when selecting an identification code.
