This article is the third in a series featuring three-dimensional embossing on aluminum. The example shown here is from one of our aluminum holiday cards. It highlights the effective use of a blind emboss. A blind emboss utilizes the same finish on the embossed graphics and the background for a subtle effect. The finish used here is an anodized gold surface. The text in this graphic is embossed in multiple layers giving the illusion of being placed one on top of another in layers. How would you use this type of emboss on a nameplate?

Mack Trucks celebrated their one-hundredth anniversary in style with a custom aluminum badge. The nameplate features a tone on tone gold surface. A low gloss gold background is accented with bright gold graphics and border. The eye-catching 100th graphic is embossed and diamond cut creating crisp dimension and a polished surface. The diamond cut surface is anodized gold to carry the gold theme across the graphics. The result is a premium look for the nameplate marking the heavy truck makers' anniversary.
This nameplate illustrates how the same tooling can be used to created multiple looks. Updating the printed aluminum with new graphics and colors results in a different look. This example includes the diamond cut process but is not anodized. The bright aluminum and matte background compliment the silver diamond cut graphic.
What look would you prefer for an anniversary badge or nameplate? Bold and bright or premium elegance? What processes might be used to help you achieve the effect you are after?
