Have a question about a nameplate or badge?
The Nameplate FAQ page covers common questions in the following areas.
Explore options in embossing aluminum to create dimensional nameplates for product identification. The embossing process uses a metal die to create a three-dimensional image in metal by squeezing the metal and raising the image. It is one of the final steps in manufacturing a nameplate or label. All brushing, spinning and printing is applied to the sheet of metal prior to the embossing operation. A topcoat protects the decoration during the tooling operations. Precise registration of printed decoration to embossed details is achieved through a combination of printers marks and guides.
Debossing uses a metal die to create a recessed image in aluminum. Options include recessing graphics or raising the background area leaving the graphics at original height giving the effect of recessed graphics. Debossing is basically the embossing process used to create recessed graphics. Special considerations need to be taken into account when choosing an attachment method for debossed nameplates to assure good adhesion.
