Have a question about a nameplate or badge?
The Nameplate FAQ page covers common questions in the following areas.
Etching is a chemical process using chemicals to cut into the surface of metal creating graphics or a design. The etch and fill process starts with a screen printed chemical resist on the front of the metal. Everything covered by the resist will be protected from the chemicals during the etching process. The fill process involves depositing an opaque color into the etched areas of the metal. The etch and fill process is available on aluminum, brass and stainless steel.
Rating and serial tags use the etch and fill process because of its timeless nature. Etched graphics stand up to the test of time, chemical abuse and weather leaving the etched copy legible. The etch and fill process is also a durable option for nameplates.
