Custom Faceplates, Nameplates and ID Tags

Posted by Matt Martin

custom faceplatesThroughout any given building, warehouse or structure there can be hundreds of custom faceplates. Ubiquitous, but often overlooked, face plates are used for any number of purposes. We commonly see face plates marked for use as model and serial number plates, warning and instructional plates, machines ID and gauge or button control plates.

Face plates can be used for identifying machines, equipment, property and utility location. Regardless of intended purposes, however, face plates can be custom marked to suit nearly any need from reference to instruction to decorative purposes.  

Custom face plates offer up a wide range of options for customization. Custom face plates can be stamped, engraved or printed to meet customer specifications, even for use in rugged environments.  The face plates themselves can be fabricated from a wide range of materials, including:

  • Paper
  • Plastic
  • High-performance polyesters
  • Metal labels and scales

Engraved Custom Nameplates

A close kin to face plates are nameplates. Also often overlooked, nameplates can be found identifying things like:

  • Push Buttons
  • Pilot Lights
  • Rotary Switch Dials
  • Signs
  • Selector Switches
  • Control Dials
  • Push-Pull Switches
  • Joy Sticks
  • Control Panels
  • Machine ID Tags
  • Panel Fronts
  • Valve Tags

Much like faceplates, custom engraved tags and nameplates can be custom designed to fit almost any need. The wide range of available materials (most commonly brass, plastic, aluminum, and stainless steel) offer a wide range of customization options.
