Using Pattern for Dimension in Aluminum Nameplates

Just look at the dimension created when a technical pattern is used in the background!  The border of this nameplate appears to be a higher level than the background, resulting in perceived depth without need for a custom emboss tool.

Can you incorporate a pattern into your next nameplate or trim design?
