Our Production Process

Drawing & Film Making

To produce the artwork we make use of a wide range of standard typefaces. Once it has been drawn up we will send over a proof to you, and we will not start manufacturing until you are completely happy with the design. If you are providing your artwork, our team is always happy to assist – we are always on hand to offer guidance and advice.


We can manufacture one of many standard finishes such as screen print, anodise and print, etch and print, hot foil print and machine engraving. We offer a free cutting to shape service if your nameplate’s shape matches with an available tool thanks to our comprehensive stock of bespoke tools.

Additional specifications are also available including:

  • Serial numbering
  • Self-adhesive backing
  • Labels in roll form
  • Individual marking
  • Removable plastic film to protect the surface of the plate


Our inspection team will check all your goods thoroughly prior to shipment. The production staff is also expected besides to report any defects while the goods are being manufactured. Every job taken is fully documented from the initial enquiry – for more info visit our Quality Compliance section.
