SCREEN AND DIGITALLY PRINTED NAMEPLATES AND OVERLAYS
Screen printing nameplates and graphic overlays is usually the most cost-effective method of imaging on metals and plastics. A polyester screen is created with a stencil that allows epoxy inks to be printed in specific areas. Our computerized color matching system can match almost any color. A common method of defining colors is to use the Pantone Color Matching System (PMS).
Our Mimaki UV and HP Indigo digital printers, with their exceptional graphic detail and flexible inks, meet and exceed the expectations of our customers for most environments including high temperature, high moisture and UV exposure. Our roll-to-roll machine allows us to run unattended while producing larger runs and are used for both rapid prototyping and production. Nelson-Miller uses the PMS callout for each color when digitally printing. Although slight variations will exist in the digitally imaged colors, for production, the part can move to traditional screen printing where we will be able to use the PMS callout for an exact match.
To add an appealing feature and have your product stand out from your competitors, both plastic and metal nameplates can be coated with polyurethane, creating 3D domed nameplates effect. If you are looking for a metal nameplate, such as aluminum, brass, or stainless steel, you might also want to consider an anodized nameplate or an etched nameplate.
