A lighter, often more cost-effective option; plastic nameplates are growing in popularity. We have two featured product options that include:

  • Flat plastic nameplates: Our flat plastic nameplates are made of polycarbonate (Lexan), polyester, and acrylic. You have the option of screen, digital, or litho-printing. We provide an endless array of colors, halftones, brushed, matte, and different levels of glossy textures. Flat plastic nameplates are cost-effective, lightweight, durable, and water- and chemical-resistant.
  • Injection-molded plastic nameplates: Our custom injected-molded plastic nameplates are made of polycarbonate (Lexan) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). You can choose from hand or robotic spray printing, engraved plastic, and hot or pad stamping. There are many colors and textures to choose from including 3D shapes and custom textures.

Materials for your custom nameplate

Choosing a material that can last for years in your custom nameplate’s environment is important, which is why we always take the time to truly understand where and how your nameplate will be used before beginning the project. Here are a few materials we often use:

  • Aluminum: Aluminum nameplates can be used with multiple finishes and are durable and scratch-resistant.
  • Stainless steel: Stainless steel offers a strong, long-lasting nameplate option that can be combined with multiple treatments and finishes.
  • Acrylic: This clear plastic is durable and can withstand moderate wear-and-tear.
  • Polyester (Mylar): Polyester nameplates are very durable and can survive extreme temperature and chemical environments.
  • Polycarbonate (Lexan): Polycarbonate nameplates are heat, water, chemical, and scratch resistant. Polycarbonate is a strong, transparent plastic.

Aluminum nameplate finishes and textures

Aluminum nameplates are one of the most popular nameplate choices because they offer limitless options.  Aluminum nameplates can incorporate embossing, die-cut shapes, screen or digital printing and infinite custom textures and finishes.
