When it comes to choosing nameplates for your business, one of the choices you will probably find yourself presented with are embossed nameplates. Other choices you may also think about considering are engraved, printed and stamped nameplates. The question you might be asking yourself would probably then be why, with so many choices, should you choose to use embossed nameplates instead of these other options.

To better understand what embossed nameplates are, and to know what benefits one can get from these things, let us first understand what embossing is. Embossing is a marking method that is used on a number of different material types. You can find materials like metal, leather and even paper marked with the use of such a method.

How Are Embossed Nameplates Crafted?

For nameplates, you will find that metals that are easy to mark, such as aluminum and stainless steel sheets, are what you will be using for such items. The process by which these will be marked uses two dies, a female and a male die, which when pressed together with the metal in between them, forms the patterns that are found on such marking materials. The pronouncement of the embossing on these metal sheets will depend on the amount of pressure used on such dies during such a process, with the more pressure being applied producing a more pronounced design on the metal.

Embossed nameplates can be used with desk holders or mounting brackets and can be used for almost anything from concierge desks to reception counters to manager’s office doors. These can also be made to carry the name of the person occupying an office or a desk in an office and can be painted on to make the wordings and designs on them stand out. This means that these nameplates are very versatile and can be used for a wide array of purposes, with your imagination being the only limit for such usefulness.

Benefits of Using Embossed Signs and Plates

Of course, aside from versatility, embossed nameplates come with other features that make it ideal for those who need such signage made for their businesses. For one, these embossed metal plates are durable due to the materials that are used to make them. The choices you have when it comes to the materials you can use for such items include mostly tarnish and rust proof metals like aluminum, brass, zinc, stainless steel and bronze.

Aside from the durability of the metals being used for nameplate creation, you will also find that the markings on these plates are rather impervious to vandalism and damage as well. Since these markings are produced with the use of pressure and two metal dies, the resulting impression would be very difficult to deface or scratch. This makes for a very durable metal nameplate that you won’t need to replace anytime soon, making it a cost-effective nameplate for your business.

Using embossed nameplates as compared with other types of nameplates will give you the kind of advantage that others cannot give you. For example, if you were to use painted or printed nameplates, unless if these plates were protected with a heavy-duty overcoat, you will soon find the painted on or printed on text or designs on these plates easy to scratch away. Engraved nameplates on the other hand are almost as durable but may bring with it maintenance issues that include the need to remove dirt from the crevices of the text on these plates every now and then.

These are but a few of the reasons why embossed nameplates should be your choice when it comes to choosing the nameplates you will use for your business. Not only will these be the wiser choice when it comes to cost-effectiveness, but it is also the best choice in terms of aesthetics, versatility and durability.
