Printed Metal Plates (Identification Plates) for industrial machinery have a wide variety of uses. Nearly every manufacturer of residential or commercial equipment will require them. One of our more popular plates is used in the manufacture of oilfield equipment, pumps, and other outdoor equipment where the longevity of the product is crucial to the identification and tracking of the machinery.
The per-item cost is minimal as compared to the equipment value, especially when ordering in quantities of 250 or more pieces. The minimum order quantity is 100 pieces. The sizes range from one, to 20 square inches, on average.
The Printed Metal Plates are available in a number of different materials:
- Brushed Aluminum
- Anodised Brushed Aluminum
- Sealed Anodized Aluminum
- Stainless Steel
- White Fence Plate
- .032″ Anodised Satin Aluminum
- .020″ Anodised Satin Aluminum
Other more exotic materials may be available upon request

Production time on the Printed Metal Plates is 10 to 15 business days after proof approval, depending on the number of additional processes that are required. There is a free virtual proof provided but a scale drawing should be provided with the order, else if it becomes very complicated, there may be art charges accessed. Bleed edges are possible with a small upcharge. +/- 5% over/under-runs are standard and adjusted on your final invoice.
