Not just a nameplate anymore!

12/5/2016
How many times have you finished a project or manufacturing run only to find out that you don’t have labels for the critical components or a nameplate to proudly display your companies name on the finished work? How about serial numbers to keep track of the equipment once it leaves your facility? How will someone know where to reach you when they see your product out in the field? Adding contact information including phone, email address, physical address or even your website gives someone viewing your product a point of contact which may develop into another sale. With Data Matrix bar-coding you can add even more information.

Last minute scrambling to add these identifiers is common because they are often overlooked. Let’s face it, it’s just a nameplate, how tough can it be to get them made? Whether you need to add a model number, serialization, safety labels or you need asset tags or bar coding to mark your critical inventory, these items do take a little time to manufacture.  If you need us to supply a metal plate in aluminum, stainless steel, brass etc, the process does take longer than supplying you with a standard decal.legend-valley-ss-eaf
