We at Inland Products are proud to manufacture and supply you with durable metal name plates in anodized aluminum, brass or stainless steel for your applications. Choose from either laser engraving or color printing.

Engraved Anodized Aluminum Name Plates from Inland Products are engraved by laser etching. This provides you with the long-lasting qualities of metal at an excellent price point. Laser engraving anodized aluminum results in a white marking. So, darker colors will result in more text to surface contrast. Our anodized aluminum is available to you in thirteen color choices.

Solid Brass Name Plates are a longtime favorite that can be used in many applications. Try our lacquer coating finish option for decorative indoor applications. Or, you might consider mill finish brass for outdoor applications where the natural aging of the brass isn’t a problem and often appreciated for it’s antique appearance. Laser engraving brass results in a dark brown black marking.

Stainless Steel Name Plates are the most durable of the metals we offer. These plates can be available in a selection of types and thicknesses. When laser etching this material, black text and graphics result.

In addition, laser etching and engraving allows us to include barcodes on our name plates for you, as well as sequential numbering, serialized numbers and logos.

Printed Aluminum Name Plates printed using our Digital Print Process are among the most colorful and durable nameplates available. They offer the benefit of full color printing capability for vibrant eye catching identification!

Metal Name Plates: A Must-Have for any Business!

There are many reasons your company could need custom metal nameplates and/or engraved metal plates for its operations. Often, it’s because your business needs to impart a bit more instruction or direction. Maybe you need to convey just a simple reminder to your workers and clients of things they already know. Or, maybe more. The information on a data nameplate can certainly be the difference between satisfaction and frustration.

Here are a few of the more common uses for metal nameplates:

1. Product and Brand Awareness Nameplates

Metal nameplates printed using our Dura-Print metal printing process are especially ideal for product identification and brand awareness nameplates.

The Dura-Print process can print full color images into the open pores of the anodized aluminum. Then, in a separate process, we seal the ink into the pores of the aluminum under a glass clear very hard anodization layer. As a result, this process makes for a very durable nameplate with superior scratch resistance that holds up well even in very harsh environments.

So, by using Dura-Print metal nameplates, you can protect your image and your brand while providing important information about your products!

2. High-Risk Work Environments

If you’re the owner or manager of a high-risk work environment, you certainly know you can never have too many warnings and labels about proper safety practices. Not only are those labels a way of educating your staff and preventing injury, but they also help protect you from being liable for a work-related injury.

Regardless of the workplace you have, there are always dangerous chemicals or heavy equipment your employees need to be cautious with. So, by placing a data plate on that equipment, it can make the difference between safety and a life-changing injury.

Given this, consider getting a customized plate that lists all the instructions you deem necessary for a safe workplace. Ultimately, these instructions could be for the handling of materials, proper maintenance, product information, safety information, and much more.

3. Aviation Identification

Not only is aviation identification a perfect use for data plates, but it’s also a legal requirement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). So, you’ll need to attach a data nameplate that outlines all the proper identification details. These details include the model, serial number, certificate number, production certificate number, aircraft engine rating, and the name of the manufacturer.

In addition, the FAA requires that the identification plate you use be fireproof and made of industrial-strength materials. And, you’ll need to place it on the outside of the aircraft, visible to anyone needing its information. So, make sure it’s in an area of the aircraft where the information on the data plate can be easily read by someone viewing it on the ground.

While that’s a lot of factors to consider, it goes a long way towards ensuring the safety of both the passengers and pilots.

4. Elevators

There are many moving pieces employed in an elevator. They make it operate effectively and stay durable for several years. With that said, an elevator isn’t something you can easily replace.

To help keep them in good working order, metal nameplates can go a long way towards educating all essential personnel on the specifics of the elevator(s) in your building. In fact, you or your workers can’t perform proper maintenance to the elevator without the necessary details being in place.

Assuming you don’t carry your elevators’ specs around with you, you’ll want to create a data plate to convey those specifications. Thus, a data nameplate is perfect for being the central hub for key information such as the weight limit, elevator type, manufacturer, emergency information, safety inspections, etc.  That data plate you create for your elevator will ensure that it’s tended to properly. Hence, saving you thousands of dollars over the course of the elevator’s lifetime.

5. Electric Equipment

Electricity in the workplace must be handled with extreme caution. Your workers may not realize the seriousness of properly using all electrical equipment. Definitively, not using the equipment properly can result in serious shock and burns to their body. So, by placing data plates on the items accordingly, you can ensure your workers’ safety while the handle the electrical equipment for their job.

Your information on the data nameplate that’s attached to electrical equipment can include that equipment’s model number, serial number, and weight. Additionally, you should  include things like the manufacturer, directions for use, possible safety hazards, and emergency contact numbers. Ultimately, when you use these plates, you’re not only taking steps towards preventing injury to your employees. In fact, your employees will also know exactly who to call if an accident happens to them or others.

So, unless you plan on standing right by the equipment 24/7 to instruct them, the metal name plate is the best way to spread must-read safety information.

6. Transportation

Vehicles of all kinds are prone to tough and demanding outdoor weather conditions. This requires a tough nameplate that can survive those conditions. Therefore, because of their excellent scratch resistance and overall durability rating, printed metal nameplates are especially appropriate for your transportation vehicles. And, this is why our nameplates are bought by auto and truck manufacturers, airline and aviation companies, railroads, shipbuilders and, of course, the U.S. military for their transportation needs.
