What our customers say about working with Leading Marks…
Matalco makes new products and aluminum billets from recycled materials. They are using the Bepop printer to make safety-related labels and PPE diagrams. In addition, Matalco is making labels for things around the plant to improve visual literacy such as daily production information, safety metrics, and labels for hard hats to show certification information. They plan on expanding their use of the tool to label storage locations to make sure things are put away and improve efficiency. Before the Bepop printer, Matalco would have to call a graphics designer, create a PO, have it printed elsewhere, and pick the labels up. “Today if we have an idea, boom, we can do it today. We don’t have to wait a week…we can do it right here.” Matalco stated that the system was… Read more “When we have an idea, boom, we can do it today!”
I would recommend Leading Marks and the EBS260 Handjet printer to anyone needing an easier, cleaner way to mark their material.
We have been working with Leading Marks since 2017. Laurie Barcaskey is very responsive and pleasant to work with. We needed a way to mark our plates with large letters/numbers that would not fall off when pulled for fabrication or to ship. JADCO purchased the EBS260 Handjet printer to mark our steel plates. Laurie stopped in several times to show us how to work the printer and try it out on our plates prior to purchasing it. We were using stencils and spray paint prior to this. The steel stencils were heavy to carry around and would get caked with the spray paint over time. The Handjet printer is light to carry around and easy to maintain. It also marks the plates much nicer than the stencils did. I would recommend Leading Marks and the EBS260 Handjet printer to anyone needing an easier, cleaner way to mark their material.

We learned about Leading Marks via google when we searched for “new marking equipment.” Laurie not only responded to our email but she came out to see our processes and learn more specifics about our marking and production needs. Initially we were interested in a dot peen system; but we began looking at other options when testing revealed that the indentations damaged our product’s EMI protection. Laurie suggested that we consider the Reiner JetStamp and it has been a lifesaver. Prior to using the Jetstamp we had to roll the mark onto the part using a 2-part epoxy ink with rubber rib type, and then affix a label. It was a messy process that resulted in poor quality marks – especially once the type was worn. Now we just use the JetStamp (a hand-held, ink marking system) to label parts with the required information. The time needed for this element… Read more “I would definitely recommend Leading Marks”
We found out about Leading Marks through the web. We contacted Laurie and she did a great presentation and was able to teach the system during the sales call. One of the things we liked best about working with Laurie is her expertise; She knows her products and their capabilities thoroughly. The dot peen marking system has served us quite well: No more smashed fingers, Clarity of the letters, and no problem training operators. I would recommend Leading Marks to other companies because they really understand and know their equipment. They are great to work with !!!!
Neff Automation, previously Intek Systems, shared office space with Laurie Barcaskey in the past. Since she started Leading Marks we have partnered with her for our marking requirements. She also makes referrals to us when automation is required. Leading Marks was able to help change our process for making panel plates. Previously we were going outside to engrave 2-ply materials, which caused lost production time for travel. With the new thermal printing process we are now able to print in-house and make adjustments to layouts as needed, and this printing process has also expanded our printing capabilities. It also allows us to use the printed label as a template for drilling holes for switches at the same time. We would definitely recommend Leading Marks. Laurie is easy and pleasant to work with, and responds to emails and questions quickly. We appreciate her broad knowledge on marking technologies and that if… Read more “Responds to emails and questions quickly, has a broad knowledge on marking technologies”
We found Leading Marks through a web search as we looked to improve our current dot peen equipment as we implemented the marking of the API monogram to our products. The team at Leading Marks was able to answer all of our questions all the way through; from the sourcing of products to setup and installation of our stamping machine. They provided knowledgeable feedback and guided us through the process with rapid responses and the utmost professionalism. One of the things we liked best about working with Leading Marks is her team’s ability to suggest multiple solutions to our needs, take our situation, and run with it. Many times we have found ourselves dealing with vendors who are looking for you to have done all the work prior to speaking with them and… Read more “The customer service before and after the sale and the ongoing technical support is fantastic”
We have been working with Laurie Barcaskey since 2014. We originally purchased a Laser Engraver for marking our parts only for identification purposes. One day shortly after purchasing the engraver we found ourselves with a rush order for some debossed parts and the vendor we typically purchase our graphite anodes from could not meet our customer’s timeline. We do not have a high speed mill able to make the fine detail on the anodes required to meet our customer specifications and typically outsource this item. We were able to utilize the laser engraver to cut the graphite anode and then using our EDM sinker make our own debossing tool with laser point accuracy. This cut our lead time down from weeks to minutes and eliminated the cost of outsourcing completely. She offers good pricing, provides good service and is able to answer our questions. We would recommend her for your… Read more “Prompt response and broad knowledge made it simpler for change our marking process”
