3 Options to Dress Up Aluminum Nameplates with Inlaid Finishes

It's a common question raised by brand owners in every industry and on just about every consumer product out there. How can I dress up my aluminum nameplate? You may be surprised how adding an inlay finish can increase the perceived value for your brand identity.

3 Ways to Use Inlaid Finishes with Aluminum Nameplates

  1. Transparent Tint for Contrast
    Bright aluminum is a classic look when designing for decorative trim. Adding a hint of transparent color provides opportunity to frame the logo and text. This adds an artistic flair to a straightforward design.

  2. Screened Texture for Dimension
    Fine, tactile detail can be added to aluminum nameplates with screened texture to give dimension. This provides opportunity for accent borders or text to have a jewelry like appearance, raising the perceived value of the product. A clear texture on brushed aluminum results in a simulated etched look.

  3. Faux Finish or Pattern for Accent
    Aluminum provides a versatile foundation for decoration to show a faux finish or other pattern structure with brand awareness. Faux finishes from wood grain and stone patterns to carbon fiber and animal skins can be translated into the decoration. Incorporating a finish like this provides an accent area to draw interest.
