Brass and Copper offer a traditional, decorative, elegant appearance to your tag, label, and name plate. It is used mostly in cosmetic application such as furniture tags, trophy name plates, retail product tags & labels, commemorative placards, decorative signs and wall plates.  This material should be coated or sealed to prevent oxidation on the surface.  On the flipside, replicating old tags and nameplate from used motors, pumps and equipment are common.  These materials can be chemically etched, screened printed and engraved. 
Chemical etching of brass or copper offers a permanent copy or image into the metal.  Controlled acids are used to dissolve the metal in desired areas and shapes. Chemical etching removes multi-layer of material in depths of .003” -.008” to show the desired copy or shapes.  Once the layers have been removed, the next process is to determine a cosmetic look to the alloy.  A natural look called “NO FILL” gives a contrast of the metal.  If your objective is to color fill the copy, we offer a wide array of colors to support your graphic presentation. We can add protective coatings or films to protect the surface from oxidation, scratches, solvents, and environmental elements. 
Screen printing of brass or copper offers a dependable process with wide array of colors to support your graphic presentation. The surface is prepared by removing imperfection in the material so that your image or information can be printed on the surface of the metal.  A protective coating is applied to protect the surface from oxidation, scratches, and environmental elements. In some application, digital printing can be offered as an alternative.
