If you are looking for the best method to assemble a nameplate onto your product, consider these options:

Snap-In Aluminum


The snap-in feature does not require an adhesive backing. It is formed in the manufacturing process to precisely fit on the product.

Foam Adhesive


Foam adhesive varies in thickness and can accommodate for a gap between the product and the nameplate. The foam has adhesive on the front and back sides, which allows for a tight bond on the nameplate and end product.

Plastic Resin


Plastic resin taken on the shape of the nameplate back and is adhered to it. The resin hardens and becomes a snap in feature.

Support for Debossed Graphics


A plastic support piece is used with nameplates containing debossed graphics. The plastic support piece molds to the nameplate and is flat for the adhesive to effectively attach.
