Military Metal Nameplates

When you work in a systematic, technical and advanced area of government, all of your equipment and business practices need to be kept organized and labeled. Anyone serving in the branches of the military knows how important it is for equipment to be easily identifiable — and to withstand the various environmental conditions they experience on a daily basis. At American Nameplate, we will customize your military equipment identification nameplates and create the metal labels for your government organizations.

Custom Metal Decals for Military Equipment

The nameplates and decals you use on your machinery should be durable, flexible when needed and designed boldly and clearly. American Nameplate creates aluminum and stainless steel metal nameplates, as well as polyester, vinyl, and foil decals & labels. For those working in and around aerospace, you might find a vinyl label or even a plastic decal works better for your military aircraft. ID labels can be etched or screen printed to meet your needs.

Our metal military nameplates are designed to withstand heat, cold, exposure to chemicals and potential abrasion from things like sand. Your nameplates will offer features and characteristics like:

  • Resistance to exposed chemicals
  • Abrasion protection
  • Durability
  • Waterproof
  • Resistance to extreme heat or cold
