Objective: Consider what the overall intent is for your nameplate. 
What is the statement you want your nameplate to make? Does it need to work across your product line on a variety of different colored products? Do you need it to stand out and catch attention? Are you looking for a refined elegant look? Is this an industrial application that requires a durable tough look? What is the budget for this project? These are some of the questions to consider when beginning the nameplate design process.

Graphics: Determine what graphics are to be include on the nameplate.
Many nameplates include simply a logo. Others incorporate a model or product name into the nameplate. Borders are often added for visual interest or to set off key elements on the nameplate. It is possible to add patterns to create additional detail. They can be subtle or bold and printed to create a subtle texture.

Shape & size: Consider what the overall dimensions and silhouette are for the nameplate.
Many times your specific logo or graphics will provide visual cues which help you determine the appropriate shape for the nameplate. A block logo or font may be more appropriate on a rectangular nameplate. The nameplate can also be created in a silhouette of the logo with a minimal amount of background supporting the graphics. In addition, stock dies are available in a wide variety of sizes and offer a way to help control tooling costs.

Colors: Determine what colors are to be used in your nameplate design.
This one sounds straight forward. I want black and silver and I'm done. The reality is there are options with each color. Consideration also needs to be made for what gloss level is desired. Metallic colors have small metal flakes in the pigment. They are naturally low gloss and contrast nicely with bright colors.

Appearance: Consider what overall effect you would like to achieve in the nameplate.
You're well on your way by the time you are at this step in your design. However, there are still additional considerations. Do you want a dimensional look to your nameplate? Will your nameplate sit in a recess? Is the nameplate applied to a contoured surface? Embossing, debossing and forming are tooling options available to add dimension to your nameplate. Doming can also be used to add depth.

Environment: Provide a listing of product specifications or environmental requirements to be met.
The environment your nameplate will be used in determines what protective topcoats we will use in the decoration process. The clear topcoat provides the overall gloss level for the part and protects the nameplate from harsh environments. We offer different topcoats depending on your end requirements.

Attachment: Review options for attaching your nameplate to your product.
A wide array of pressure sensitive and heat activated adhesives can be used to attach your nameplate. Foam adhesives are available in a variety of thicknesses and are often used for attaching to rough surfaces. In addition, mechanical options such as snap fit, tabs and studs can be used for attachment to the final product.
