There are countless ways you can get the perfect custom x-ray markers for use in your imaging office. Whether you are looking for x-ray markers with initials, personalized x-ray markers, and even what you might call cute x-ray markers, here are all the different options and ways you can customize positioning indicator markers and x-ray lead markers to best serve the needs of your hospital, clinic, and medical imaging facility.



The first option you have to choose from is what type of material you need your markers to be made. You can choose between either Plastic Markers or Aluminum Markers. The most common between these two materials types are Plastic Standard Markers and Aluminum Standard Markers.


Position Indicator Markers contain unique encapsulated beads which act as a position indicator for quickly identifying image orientation. Most often they come in left and/or right, and are sold individually or a set.

Custom x-ray markers come in many different sizes to suit your specific needs. Sizes can range from the following:

  • 5/8"
  • 7/8"
  • 1/2"
  • 9/16"
  • 1"


Markers can be made with and without initials or characters. The number of letters or symbols can range from:

  • No characters
  • 2 characters
  • 3 characters
  • 2 lines with 3 characters per line


If you would like more than just initials or characters, you may have full words on custom xray markers. Word markers assist you to quickly identify specific notations on an x-ray image. 

They are typically available with 1/2" (0.5") or 3/8" (0.375") sized letters and will easily display virtually any word or message that you require. Both Plastic Word Markers and Aluminum Word Markers are sold as a single marker with a maximum of up to 15 characters.


You may not require letters or words so you can get an arrow indicator. This type of marker features a 1" arrow with no characters. Aluminum Arrows and Plastic Arrows are sold as a single multi-directional arrows, and come in multiple color options.


Xray markers may be either vertical or horizontal in their orientation. 


The most commonly used colors for x-ray markers are red and blue, but you can fully customize your markers from 50 different x-ray marker color options
