When to Choose Other Plates Over Decorative Trim Plates

Decorative Trim PlatesWhen people are confronted with the need to make a choice between specific metal nameplates for their businesses, one of the top choices is the decorative trim plate. This is because of the fact that these plates are highly customizable and can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Aside from decorative needs, as the name implies, these plates can also be used for branding and other purposes.

If what you need are tags that are rather decorative in nature, then yes, these decorative trim plates are exactly what you need. You can choose from a number of marking methods for these plates, and you can also choose the metal that is to be used for these. Another option you have is whether or not such plates should be made in color, or just carry black print on it.

While these plates are indeed versatile and totally customizable, there are times when choosing another kind of plate over this option is better. This is when certain metal nameplates are made specifically for what you need. Here are some of the choices you have and where these are ideal:

Barcodes and UID Plates – when you require your plates or tags to have these coded symbols on them, it might be a better idea to go for plates that are made specifically for this. Such can be found in our barcode and UID plates, and you can choose from a wide variety of code options that include both 2D and linear. You can also integrate other information on these tags, like company name, logo, and contact information, to name a few.

Model and Serial Plates – these are nameplates that are made for carrying a product’s model and serial number or information on them. Since some companies choose to have these tags carry only these and nothing more, you might want to opt for this specific kind of metal nameplate instead of a totally customizable one for this particular need. You can still have these tags carry additional information on them though, if that is what you need. These tags are also customizable and can be made using a variety of metals, can use different marking methods, and can be made in any size.

Inventory and Asset Tags – these are metal nameplates that carry inventory and tracking features, like areas for numbering and tracking codes. While these can also be made using decorative trim plates, since these already have the features needed for inventory purposes, these are your best bet for such a purpose. These can be made to carry your company’s contact info, company name, logo, and even simply carry the inventory numbering on it.
