Favorite Nameplate | Aluminum Nameplate shows Dimension

Guest Blogger

This article is part of a series of articles from my co-workers on their favorite nameplates. Jerry Chenoweth, our guest blogger this week, chose an aluminum nameplate which he uses to showcase possiblities of decorating aluminum for a dimensional look without the cost of a custom embossing tool.

I especially like to show this part if the customer is talking about embossing their graphics but I suspect the tooling cost may be prohibitive to do so. It is a nice looking example of a common size and shape being available using a stock die.

The mechanical finish engine stripe on the aluminum graphics creates movement and the visual effect that those graphics are higher than the background. Perceived depth is also achieved by the texture design of the pattern in the background and how it appears to move and sway depending on the viewing angle. 

Due to the way the light reflects off this part it is very eye catching and eye pleasing. The tactile feel to the background pattern adds to its elegance. The overall effect is a very high end looking nameplate which adds perceived value to the product it is adhered to.
