I design custom nameplates for any project. Just provide me with your camera ready artwork or a general idea of what you want and leave the rest to me. I have made nameplates for many collectors who wanted a special one of a kind plate for their custom dioramas, and have produced master nameplates for kit producers Night Owl, Dark Carnival, Kreature Kid, Ray Santoleri, Resin Realities, Monz Design and Forbidden Zone. I can also do simple line text, raised or recessed, for trademark, copyright date, and branding of your castings.

The process is faster than it might appear. The bulk of the work goes into recreating the artwork supplied or laying out the text in the size desired. Within a few business days after payment is received, the etched metal plate can be in the mail to you. If a mold is required add two weeks to the process and the plate can be sent directly to a moldmaker whom I can recommend. The plate is initially rough cut and I then remove the excess metal down to the edging as is seen below.

Requirements for art are files from a photo editing program in 300-600 DPI in Greyscale or camera ready paste-up. I can also use your logo or other elements to create the art for you if it is not camera ready. Prices start at $55 for a 2" x 3" plate and $85 for a 3" x 4" plate and includes tracked, insured Priority shipping in the continental USA.

When you order a custom nameplate it is yours to do what you wish as I do not retain any rights to it, however no rights are given or implied on any of the nameplates I create. It is the buyer's responsibility to secure the rights for use on licensed logos and trademarks. Please contact me to discuss your project before sending payment. Thank you.

 

Below is a plate done for Rob Mattheson at Monster Model Review. The master metal plate was produced in less than a week and then sent to a moldmaker to have resin castings made from it.
