The “lightbulb moment” happened when I saw cell phone tower registration signs being etched by a laser. They had to hold up to the weather and each plaque was unique. With my horticulture background, I knew exactly what to do with this technology. That was the start of Lark Label. It took some time perfecting the process and learning about metal, which is way different from pulling weeds.
Since Karl had that “lightbulb moment” and made the first Lark Labels, we have been making many innovations to that original sign.
Besides using a laser to etch into black anodized aluminum, our nameplates are black on both sides and the stakes are also black anodized rather than painted.
We were the first, and only, plant display marker company to warranty our markers for ten years.
Our Classic Nameplates have rounded corners and the Lark Label Stake Anchor which helps keep your markers in YOUR garden! Our stakes have the Safety Point, which is a true point with blunted end to keep it safer.
Plants come in every color but black and white which is why we came up with our full color Spectrum markers. We can make them any size, from a small marker to a larger interpretive panel. We guarantee these not to fade or delaminate for ten years.
During our time in business, we’ve built a professional plant database of botanical Latin names. As we know these Latin names can be confusing, and change often, we spellcheck your names against our professional plant database to ensure accuracy before printing.
