What is a Lamacoid ?

Lamacoid (also spelt lamicoid) is the term that was used for many years to specifically describe the 2-ply and 3-ply plastic material that was used in making industrial and construction tags. However, it has now come to include all sorts of tags, plates, valve tags, wayfinding signage, nameplates and more using a wide range of materials. Lamacoids can be very cost effective and can be fully customized as they come in a variety of materials and colors combinations. Most of the materials used are UV stable and weather resistant. Therefor they work great to create long lasting and durable products.

Engraving Laser

Process or Making

All lamacoids made at Star Name Tags are etched using a modern CO2 laser as apposed to older rotary and scratch engraving techniques. This process produces much higher detail therefore leading to both crisper text and high-quality images.


We accept vector files typically in .eps, .ai and .pdf format. Likewise, are also happy to create files for our clients as necessary, building your layouts from scratch and providing no cost digital proofs. We do not typically charge a set up fee. commonly found in the industry.


Materials such as plastic products can also be cut on the laser. However, metal products like aluminum, brass, and stainless steel are sheer cut. Therefore producing smooth clean edges.


We can provide our customers with reverse engraved and color fill products to further customize lamacoids.


The laser process along with Star Name Tags commitment to customer satisfaction enables a very quick turnaround time for production.

Jeff was a pleasure to deal with. He understood just what I needed and helped me make a great gift selection that he engraved for me. A beautiful retirement gift that I’m sure will be appreciated for years to come.

I phoned, a nice man answered the phone. Said he worked out of his home but was at another job as well. That was fine. Asked me to text him a photo of the keychain I wanted engraved to see if he could do it. I did this right away. He never got back to me. I texted him later, still no reply. I texted him the next day, still no reply. I will not do business with him unless he apologizes to me for being so unprofessional.
