A colleague recently mentioned: "There are so many nameplates produced at Northern Engraving that are located throughout our homes and we often look past them." Daily use of an item causes us to forget what brand it is or how long ago it was purchased, and a new focus is directed toward its function.A remote, for example, is readily used, especially since the amount of televisions in a home has dramatically increased in the last few years. As a child I remember the remote my grandparents had for their only television. It was a Magnavox (very similar to the one pictured) and functioned for a majority of my childhood. Though somewhat irrelevant in terms of the fondest of memories from my time spent with my grandparents, looking at a faceplate from that remote does bring back some very special memories from that time period.What brands can you recall from your past?

The above nameplate was designed for an IBM manufacturing system in the 1980’s. The nameplate is an aluminum substrate with an embossed IBM logo and one overall color application. It is a very simple design, yet very recognizable in terms of the company brand.This version of an IBM is not what we normally think of in terms of computers or processing systems. The 7540 was developed in 1983 for manufacturers to enhance their speed and accuracy. IBM made a programmable tool to handle weights of up to 55 pounds. When paired with an IBM personal computer, the manufacturing engineers could create programs to make the 7540 work through IBM’s custom robotic programming language.When we think of personal computers today, a laptop or iPad often come to mind. IBM created the first personal computer over 25 years ago, and what a long way the world has come since that time.
The household name, Spalding, is featured here in the form of a gold nameplate. This nameplate incorporates bright aluminum, gold tint and printed matte black lettering.
Spalding began in 1876 by former major league baseball player A.G. Spalding. Since the beginning, the company has been known as the leader of innovation and quality in sporting goods. This reputation started with the production baseballs and baseball gloves. From there, footballs, basketballs, volleyballs, baseball bats, driveway basketball hoops and golf balls have all been recognized through the Spalding brand. Some of these products also became official sporting equipment of the MLB, NBA, WNBA, Arena Football Leagues and professional volleyball. Though most of us were not fortunate enough to become professional athletes, Spalding equipment graces our garages and driveways.
This example of packaging is featured on a 5 CD Box Set and an accompanying guitar carrying case which houses the CD set (not pictured). The logo is printed on a bright aluminum substrate, with a matte black finish surrounding the logo. In addition, the logo is embossed to enhance the bright aluminum and offer a recognizable contrast from the black finish. Many fans will appreciate the longevity and durability the aluminum gives to the nameplate used for packaging.
The options for packaging a product are endless; however adding an aluminum insert to this CD set gives the opportunity for the product to stand out among all others. Not only is the decoration attractive, but it boasts durability and uniqueness. Through the four-color process the desired design is achieved.
Process color uses four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black to create multiple colors. Some typical uses for the four color process include: multi-color graphics, faux finishes, illustrations, and photos. Process color provides a variety of possibilities for building your design and brand image.Other examples of process color:

The Electrolux brand has evolved over several decades. Not only have the appliances themselves gone through changes, so have the nameplates. Below are just two examples of the evolution in nameplate design.
On the earlier nameplate version, a one-side-bright aluminum substrate is used with embossed lettering and an embossed border. The colors are opaque, which do not allow for the bright aluminum to shine through, but instead give a more distinct design.
The updated version of the nameplate includes a brushed aluminum substrate with a gray-toned coating. The lettering here is also embossed, with a metallic gray color. There is also a formed edge that enhances the level of the nameplate on the appliance.
