These plates are generally manufactured by cutting through a top layer of plastic to expose the bottom layer of plastic (usually a contrasting color). Metallic plates can also be engraved and filled with a contrasting color. These plates are very durable and while they too can be generated by computers the mechanical engraving for complex styles may become costly. Other methods include reverse engraving, which can give a beautiful 3 dimensional effect, and vinyl diecutting, which allows the greatest design flexibility.
These plates are manufactured by applying a precut vinyl to the surface of your plate. The major advantage of this type of plate is that the copy can be generated from any major computer typesetting or graphics program.
A variety of sizes are available upon request.
