Virtually all products feature a company name or trademark as a symbol of the quality you expect to experience when purchasing the product. Using a nameplate to prominently position your brand in front of your customer allows you to precisely control that message. Embossing is a classic option for adding perceived value to your nameplate, badge or emblem. Embossing adds dimension to the nameplate. This article is the first in a series of four articles which focuses on options in three-dimensional embossing on nameplates. The examples used in this series are pulled from our collection of aluminum holiday cards.
This aluminum holiday card uses a three-dimensional emboss to create a faceted effect on the snowflake. The embossed snowflake combines bright aluminum with a multi-directional brush and diamond cut accents to create sparkle and draw your eye to it as the focal point of the card. The background combines mechanical finishes with etched detail to complete the elegant silver-on-silver look. The same processes are available to you as you work on your next nameplate or emblem. How would you use a three-dimensional emboss on a logo to add interest to a nameplate?
Adhering securely on flat or curved surfaces, custom domed decals and labels are a polished way to differentiate everything from electronics and sporting goods to cosmetics and appliances. This high performance urethane bubble provides a rich three-dimensional look. Although often used on oval and circular labels, this custom label illustrates using the doming process on a unique shape. The small size combined with chrome accents creates a jewel-like effect.

The Champion logo shown here illustrates the use of the NECODome process to create a bright chrome label for binder customization. Key to the success of the project was the ability to achieve straight walls on the edge of the part rather than a rounded look. This process is flexible allowing you to create either one of these options. The NECODome process reproduces your design using a die in the shape of your artwork to both cut and seal the image. Using this die, a sandwich of materials is heat-sealed onto a base material.
The relationship between embossed chrome graphics and a matte metallic background are juxtaposed in this furniture label. This label illustrates the versatility of chrome polyester (Mylar® film) to be used in a wide variety of applications offering the look of a metal label at the cost effective price of plastic. Sharp angles in the label design follow the shape of the logo. A new aesthetic emerges through this combination of precision and surface finishes.
Chrome polyester labels are available in custom shapes and sizes and in an unlimited range of color choices. Low cost tooling makes these labels and decals an attractive option for low volume needs. The labels are manufactured with permanent pressure sensitive adhesive and a carrier for easy removal of the liner. Overlamination is available providing added protection from abrasion and solvents.
