Etched Metal Nameplates

When you’re in need of an etched nameplate manufacturer, American Nameplate is your go-to source. We create decals, nameplates, and labels on a number of metal surfaces to clearly identify your business and machinery parts. Choose the design or metal you want, and we’ll create the etched tag you need to get the job done.

Overall Process of Etched Metal Nameplates

Chemically or acid etching is used to etch the words, numbers or designs you need in your choice of metal. The depth of the etch won’t compromise the integrity of the overall plate. We will then leave the surface as is or will add baked enamels and epoxies into the deep etches. This is referred to as the “fill thickness,” ensuring your color stays intact and emphasizes your etched markings.

In addition to the designs of your etched metal labels, you can choose the finish, the adhesive, any fasteners you need to attach to a surface and the shape or finish of each corner. You can mix and match the types of finishes and adhesives with the metal of your choice as well.

Stainless Steel Etched Nameplates

Stainless steel nameplates are some of our most commonly etched products. Choose from a thickness that ranges between 0.016 inches and 0.075 inches. A stainless steel etched tag works perfect for listing model and serial numbers as well as manufacturing information because of its crisp, finished look. It is also resistant to a variety of factors — corrosion, moisture, chemicals, and abrasions — so it can be displayed in extreme environments.

Aluminum Etched Nameplates

With a custom aluminum etched nameplate, you’ll find a wide range of flexibility with your design. Aluminum is a softer and more pliable metal, allowing for a range of thickness between 0.012 and 0.125 inches. Custom etched ID nameplates can also be color-coded to easily identify objects such as water pipelines. The color of the paint on your nameplate can be customized as well — for example, use a white ink for higher contrast with a brighter or darker aluminum nameplate background or choosing a Black Anodized.
