Hallmark Nameplate is so dedicated to the quality of our work that one of our most popular and versatile products are in our name. Our nameplates provide decorative solutions that enhance your product, while at the same time, offering quick turnaround times without sacrificing an ounce of quality.
Generally, nameplate production includes both labels and overlays that don’t require embossing or extensive engineering. Compared to graphic overlays, nameplates offer faster production and lower pricing. At Hallmark Nameplate, we have more than 55 years of nameplate experience. When it’s time to begin working on your next nameplate project, our team will be able to walk you through the entire development process to make sure that you have the right nameplate for your specific needs and application.
In a similar way, graphic overlays are aesthetically pleasing. However, they do offer an added bonus of functionality. Our graphic overlays are either screen or digitally printed, similar to our nameplates, except they will require additional processing like embossing, trans-colored display windows, or selective texturing.
There are a vast amount of applications for our products, from the most simple to the most complex needs of our customers. While this is true, there are still common applications, and we’re here to walk you through some of them.
Medical and Other Heavy-Cleaning Facilities
Aesthetics and durability are both critical for medical equipment overlays, membrane switches, and brand identity labels These products must reinforce the branding of the product, as well as withstand harsh cleaning chemicals and heavy usage that are used in the medical industry. When you’re working with tools of the medical trade, it’s important to have functioning, easy-to-decipher nameplates (and overlays) to provide the information necessary to get the job done. Graphic overlays are very popular for medical equipment because they have the ability to aid in visual display. Through the use of either transparent windows or selective texturing, LEDs or clear windows can display information such as heart rates, temperatures, or other life-saving medical information.
Our graphic overlays, which require protection from form the elements, are also very useful outside of the medical field. Beyond hospitals and nursing homes, our technology can benefit schools, government offices, shopping malls, grocery stores, airports, hotels, fitness centers, high traffic environments, and cafeterias in the same way.
Hallmark Nameplate is proud to partner with U.S. Military suppliers for nameplates. Our products are thoroughly tested and capable of military-grade conditions, and our commitment to design and materials is evidenced by our standing as an ITAR Compliant vendor.
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related goods on the United States Munitions List (USML). ITAR is enforced through the U.S. Department of State and is designed to protect the country’s military and defense objects. For Hallmark Nameplate, compliance means that information and material pertaining to defense and military technologies for items listed on the U.S. Munitions List may only be shared with U.S. persons unless authorization from the Department of State is given.
Our ITAR compliance ensures that if your organization is a vendor for the U.S, military, our nameplates are similarly guarded as part of an ITAR compliant operation.
Branding, Personal and Business Use
Our nameplates are often used for long-term marketing purposes because they are so durable and informational at the same time. A nameplate can serve a simple purpose, such as displaying the name and title of a manager on their office door. At the same time, the uniqueness of a nameplate can stretch as far as providing instructional material for a piece of complex machinery, or even promotional, permanent advertising for a business.
What is unique about graphic overlays for business use is that there is an added environmental protection. With this, a company that works with chemicals or liquids that could contaminate or damage the inside of a piece of machinery can rest assured that those contaminants won’t get past the overlay.
Regardless of your profession or the industry you work in, Hallmark Nameplate will be able to exceed your expectations with our products. Your project will flow seamlessly from conception to completion. If you’re looking to create a new nameplate or graphic overlay for your business, contact Hallmark Nameplate today!
