Have a question about a nameplate or badge?
The Nameplate FAQ page covers common questions in the following areas.
A diamond cut nameplate features crisp distinctive graphics. The process involves embossing graphics and using a rapidly rotating industrial diamond to cut the surface of the aluminum. There are four commonly used options when diamond cutting an aluminum nameplate. I will review four of the diamond cut alternatives here:
A close look at the surface of graphics cut with the phalynx diamond cut reveals crisp diamond shapes. This process is controlled to offer sharp graphics with a detailed surface ranging from a very fine to coarse diamond cut pattern.
The look of a polished surface is creating on embossed graphics produced with the skive diamond cut process. This process is often used on nameplates with fine graphics. A secondary diamond cut pattern is not readily visible on skived graphics.
The most popular diamond cut surface on aluminum nameplates and labels is the zebra diamond cut. This process offers a variety of looks ranging from fine to coarse diamond cut.
A star diamond cut is most often used as an accent on a nameplate. The various star effects are all eye catching and create a jeweled look. The cut creates a high contrast look when placed on a black background. The same cut is successfully used on a white or silver background for a tone on tone look.
