What should decorators consider when incorporating metal marking into their business?

You should make sure you have the capabilities to cut custom sizes and/or shapes from sheet metal to fit custom pieces, if not using premade plates or plaque plates. You may need other tools such as a corner notcher or hole punch. 

If you would like to mark on items such as stainless-steel tumblers, it’s important to know if the material is raw stainless steel and doesn’t have a coating on it. Also, fully read the directions of whatever marking spray you are using in the application.
