Imagine for a minute that it is your first day of middle school. Your new school is in a huge building that you have never explored before. While walking around and trying to find your homeroom, you realize that you have no idea where you are. There are no numbers, labels, or names on the doors and everything looks the exact same to you. Unfortunately, all the other students are inside their correct classrooms, somehow they must know more than you. The final bell rings, and since you still have no idea where Mrs. Porter’s class is you sit down in the middle of the hall and cry out of frustration and exhaustion. Now I realize this scenario sounds like a horrible nightmare that a young preteen might have on the eve of their first day of school, but it brings to light an issue that is usually forgotten.
Because of the personalized nature of name plates, it would be very difficult for a company to supply name plates without manufacturing them as well. That is why name plate suppliers must be an all-around industry, taking the product from the initial design through its manufacturing process and then into the hands of the customer. Step A is necessary for step B and both are necessary for step C. Name plate suppliers must be name plate manufacturers as well.
Different applications for name plates require different modes for presentation. Because name plates have such a wide variety of uses, the ways they are attached or presented are equally as varied. For example, desk name plates are often attached to some sort of stand during production. These may be welded together when they are metal nameplates or manipulated during the molten stage if they are plastic nameplates. Rarely does attachment need to occur after production is finished when dealing with desk name plates. However, door name plates are another matter.
Name plates make for great and attractive labeling in any office letting people know whose office is whose. The perfect place for these name plates to be hung is right on the front of each office door. This ensures that co workers are going to the correct office which belongs to the person they are looking for before knocking and interrupting the wrong person.
