Northern Engraving offers a diverse range of decorative processes on metal and plastic substrates. Typically, our customers use these options to create product identification in a wide range of markets. Occasionally a customer uses the same processes in an unexpected way. The knob insert shown here is one example of a non-traditional use for the doming process.
The cross-stitch designs are lithographed on aluminum using process color to achieve subtle detail in the designs. Adhesive is laminated to the back of the parts for assembly to the knobs. The doming process is the final step in the manufacturing of these parts. During this step a liquid polyurethane is applied and cured into a crystal clear lens.

The etch and fill process is used on the Brunswick pool table nameplates to create product branding which reflects the world class service and attention to detail the furniture is known for. Brunswick offers pool tables ranging from legendary heirloom-quality furniture to traditional yet durable pool tables. Aluminum nameplates are used as an attractive durable addition to the game room furniture.
Etching is a process which uses chemicals to cut into the surface of the aluminum. The etch and fill process begins with a printed resist. Areas protected by the resist will not be effected by the etching process. The fill process involves depositing an opaque color into the etched areas of the metal. This process combines with the simple classic design of the Brunswick nameplates allowing them to be beautifully integrated into the furniture.
This brass nameplate takes a completely different approach in design. Process color is used to reproduce the vintage graphics and antique look on brass.

Each product has its own unique set of challenges in creating a strong brand presence which differentiates the product in the marketplace. A nameplate can help a product stand out among others and deliver a clear consistent look for a brand.
Simmons wanted to create a cost effective nameplate that would catch attention on the showroom floor. They also needed the nameplate to be applied to a variety of types of fabric. Since the side of the mattress flexed in use, it was important that the label also flex.
The domed label that was designed met all challenges unique to a mattress application. A chrome polyester substrate was combined with a deep transparent purple tint for visual depth. This was accented further when a flexible urethane dome was applied to the label. The dome also complimented the mother of pearl effect used in the background of the nameplate.
The solution for applying the domed label to fabric was to stitch the label to the mattress right through the urethane dome. A pressure sensitive adhesive was used for initial placement of the label.
