Build Your Brand with Custom Nameplates That Last

A nameplate showcases a company name or brand on a product. It is your opportunity to make an impact and get noticed. An attractive nameplate or label reinforces the perceived value for your product. Whether looking for a bold metal badge that draws attention or a simple plastic decal to build your brand, work with a company with a proven track record of collaboration and meeting deadlines.

Durable Material

No matter if you are searching for a rigid or flexible material, care is taken to understand the application and help guide selection so that the end result meets expectations. Versatile metal and plastic options are offered that are suitable for use with indoor and outdoor applications as well as on products that are exposed to harsh environments including sunlight/UV rays, hot or cold climates, and exposure to chemicals or cleaning products.

Metal

Metal is a durable material suitable for product identification across all markets, especially products exposed to harsh environments. 

  • Aluminum - metal of choice for durable, cost effective nameplates, emblems, and data plates. It can take on the appearance of other metals like brass or stainless steel by applying transparent tints of color to the surface.

  • Stainless Steel - popular substrate for product identification in indoor or outdoor applications, usually within harsh environments. It is corrosive and dent resistant. Its strength makes stainless steel ideal for industrial settings and applications.

Plastic

A variety of plastic material options is stocked that provide the right protection along with the functionality, durability, and custom decoration needed for your design. 

  • Polyester (Mylar) - thin, flexible material that typically is coupled with an overlaminate for robust resistance to chemicals and harsh elements. 

  • Polycarbonate (Lexan) - available in thicknesses up to .030", offering a durable solution that resist abrasions and stand up to exposure to cleaning solutions, chemicals, or other harsh environments.

  • Vinyl - material of choice for caution and warning labels due to its flexible nature and relatively low price point. It can also be used for asset tags and point of purchase display branding.
