Name Plates

Plastic engraved name plates may be of four design types, so the price is partly dependent on whether the name plate includes:

  • metal organisation badge;
  • pre-printed colour organisation logo on engraveable name plate – a minimum of 250 name plates to be pre-printed and the actual production cost (artwork, setup and printing) and the printed blanks are held by us pending engraving;
  • an engraved organization logo – organization to supply a high quality graphic suitable for reproduction as a single colour engraving. The logo is engraved into the blank at the same time as the name and other text;
  • name and other text only – no logo or badge.

A major factor affecting the price of name plates is the type of fitting attached to the back of the name plate. There are several different fittings (findings) that we regularly use and they are illustrated in the photograph below, but we can also add Velcro to the backs of badges:

Standard sized name plates can have up to four lines of text, but the amount of text does not affect the prices. The prices for name plates with an organization badge are as follows:

  • Spring pin (white or black plastic) – $11;
  • Locking brooch pin – $11;
