While there are obviously many elements to consider in the process, and therefore a multitude of design options, below is a brief overview of some of the most common types of exposure that nameplates face and the materials best suited for each.
Exposure to Heat:
Etched zinc nameplates are the ideal choice when exposure to high heat is a factor in your decision. On top of being highly heat resistant, etched zinc nameplates are highly popular because they can be rendered in nearly any shape with multiple colors and tight registration.
Three-dimensional nameplates comprised of individual letters have become increasingly trendy because of their streamlined look and overall pop.
Each letter seems to float perfectly on its own, creating a distinct type of branding on the surface of cars, equipment, musical instruments, etc. Think of the YAMAHA nameplate and the impact that the bold letters have against the background of a motorcycle.
With this type of nameplate, the letters of your copy constitute the nameplate itself, making the actual surface of your product the background. If your product is brightly colored, for example, so is your nameplate, against which individual lettering stands out boldly. Because of the clean look of individual letter nameplates, they can be placed on any number of backgrounds to create both brand consistency and aesthetic versatility.
It is easy to consider signage an exclusively visual medium of communication, but it is also critical to ensure that necessary information can be conveyed to the visually impaired.
Braille is a form of written language, comprised of a series of patterns of raised dots correlating to the alphabet, that are felt with the fingertips in order to give the visually impaired the ability to read. ID3 Logos is proud to render nameplates with Braille lettering for your workplace or your products in order to effectively communicate to a wider and more inclusive readership.
What is it?
In short, "brand trust" is customer faith in particular brands as a result of said brands consistently delivering what they promise.
Brand trust absolutely must be earned, and it benefits companies by continually building a loyal customer base. Brand trust is what keeps businesses successfully running long-term and what keeps customers happy—so it is essential for all parties.
The importance of workplace safety labels cannot be overstated. Ensuring that your employees are aware of potential dangers in the workplace--both indoors and out--is critical to guaranteeing that no one is injured on the job.

A logo is the visual emblem of a larger, overall brand identity system. While the logo is a critical piece of branding that both embodies and transports a brand, the logo does not carry meaning singularly. A good logo exists when it is backed by a beloved brand that is loaded with meaning, sensory experiences, and feelings. A good logo becomes good the moment it does its job serving as the visual representation of a brand or product.

Before considering the role of nameplates in professional branding, it is important to understand what branding is. So, what is a brand? A brand, in short, is the essence of a particular product––not just what the product literally is, but also figuratively: what it represents and says to the world. Successful branding involves cultivating a unique and memorable brand that attracts prospective customers, keeps customers loyal, and ultimately turns a great profit.
Etched Plastic Nameplates (EPoly) are versatile and unique, creatively customized to reflect your brand via a combination of painting, hot stamping and/or screening (metallic or pigment). They are an etched plastic polymer with crisp detail, much like injection molding, and they have the look of a molded nameplate without the tooling. Etched plastic is an excellent choice for prototype nameplates as well as for low quantity production nameplates. These nameplates are ideal for orders of 25-200 and the minimum order quantity is 25.
