Metal Photo® Nameplates & Tags

MetalPhoto® nameplates are produced by exposing aluminum impregnated with a silver compound to light through a film negative. Photographic images are inlaid and sealed into the anodic layer of aluminum. The unique imaging process creates extremely high resolution graphics that make it ideal for machine-readable barcodes, serialized data, and anti-counterfeit security applications. MetalPhoto® also offers durability that can withstand the most extreme conditions and environments.

Texas Nameplate uses MetalPhoto® for specialized applications that demand longevity and quality imaging.
