Faux Leather Finish on Aluminum
Sometimes the best decoration for a nameplate is to allow it to take on the look of natural surfaces. Aluminum provides a good surface for hand crafted looks since it is reflective and therefore adds to depth for highlights and shadows.
This badge shows the level of detail that can be achieved with standard printing processes on aluminum. I love the look of a sewn-on leather label complete with wrinkles and pulled up edges. The brand logo has a dimension achieved with shadows and half tones to give the illusion of embossed graphics.
