Add Interest to Nameplates and Trim with Patterns

Starting with the Finish 

Aluminum is a great substrate to work with for decorative trim and nameplates.  The natural highlights and reflective qualities of the metal provide the foundation to build from. Decorating processes to manipulate the metal surface with laydown of colors, printing a logo, brushing and spinning offer unlimited possibilities.   The design of your nameplate or label can incorporate a finish or pattern to add interest.  Use the pattern as full background or as attention-grabbing accent. The finish can be subtle with a fine dot or pinstripe or it can be bold with a graphic or faux interpretation.  The beauty is that the possibilities are wide open.
