When you place an order for a product, you want to be assured that what you receive is made well and to your specifications. This is true for any item from standard office supplies to expensive equipment on your floor. What does quality mean when it comes to nameplates, labels, overlays, and decals? It all starts with expectations.

Quality Requirements for Nameplates

A well designed nameplate is only good when it arrives on time and with the required specs. A supplier who works with you to understand your needs, order patterns and delivery requirements becomes a trusted partner in your success. At a minimum, the following information is needed for any nameplate or label. 

  • Material

  • Size and Shape

  • Color Callouts

  • Adhesive or Attachment Method

Ideally a blueprint or sketch in a vector format artfile is provided by the customer. This sets the expectations for making the parts. It gives the supplier a record to perform quality checks along the way of producing parts for compliance.
