Small order quantity? Digital printing is the best option. Unlike conventional printing methods, digital printing doesn’t require films, screens or traditional ink and material waste. That means a variety of design options and cost-effective price for low-quantity runs. Digital printing also saves time because the nameplate is printed directly from a computer file, without the hassle of film or screens.
Should You Pick Polycarbonate, Polyester or Aluminum Nameplates?
Anodized aluminum nameplates are used for rating plates, dials and scales, templates, instructional tags, corporate identity and serial numbers. Aluminum nameplates also meet ANSI, military, UL and CSA specifications. Aluminum nameplates are a favorite among our clients looking for an attractive finish in a hard, scratch-resistant material. Our die-cutting equipment even allows us to cut your aluminum nameplate into any shape you need, no matter the thickness.
Like aluminum, polycarbonate nameplates have superior mechanical strength, toughness and clarity. They can also survive extreme environmental conditions, such as high temperatures, chemical abrasions and corrosion. Polycarbonates are known for their dimensional stability, optical clarity, printability and graphic design freedom. They can have a clear or textured finish. They can be embossed, die cut, lasered, selective textured and/or selective adhesive can be applied. They are also available in a wide range of thicknesses, from .005” to .030”, depending on the application.
Polyester is a versatile material that has many applications, including use in electronics, magnetic media, packaging, product identification, imaging and graphing. Both materials are great for harsh indoor and outdoor environments. Polyester nameplates meet a lot of rigorous job specs, including high tensile strength, durability, clarity, resistance to abrasion and solvents, resistance to shrinking and stretching and low electrical conduction.
