Embellish With Metal and Style

Let Your Custom Metal Nameplates and Badges Speak for Themselves

SCN offers immense options to design and create custom metal nameplates and badges for your company. Your nameplates shouldn’t blend in with the competition, instead, your metal nameplates and badges should embellish your brand with style and quality. Below are the different processes available to create your custom metal nameplates and badges.

Forming Metal Process

  • Forming metal means forcing the metal between a forming die to mold the metal into any desired shape, depth, style, etc.
  • We have over 6 die presses with these capabilities and a wide range of tonnages
  • The forming of metal products requires specialty tools (typically of hardened steel) and die presses that isolate hundreds of tons of pressure per square inch
  • Formed metal parts can be used to cover housing or for beautification purposes
  • Finishing options: Mill, brushed, and polished

Embossing Metal Process

  • Embossing metal, similar to forming, means forcing metal between a male and female die that embosses or imprints a certain area upward into the shape of your die (typically your logo)
  • Embossing of metal parts can be accomplished in several ways utilizing magnesium dies, hardened tools, or specialty prototype/small run dies that SCN makes at our facility
  • Utilizing embossing with your metal parts enhances the look of your product, such as embossed metal nameplates, to give you the “pop” that you want!

Debossing Metal Process

  • Debossing is the same process as embossing except the metal is forced downward giving it a “relief” look

Stamping Metal Process

  • Stamping metal parts is very similar to embossing and debossing however with stamping you are only utilizing a male die
  • Typically stamping dies are utilized in heavier gauge products when you want the back of your part to remain flat but want a forever lasting “stamp” embedded into your product

Specialty Die Cuts and Punches

  • Die cutting metals can be achieved with both steel rule dies and hardened tools for a clean-cut edge
    • Steel rule dies are typically used for smaller gauge aluminum and shorter production runs
    • Hardened steel dies are typically used for high production runs with tight tolerances because of the extra costs associated with them
  • We can die cut and punch thicknesses ranging from .005-.125
  • Die cuts and punches can be made to essentially any design you would like so you are limitless in your designs


  • SCN offers several variations including printed, stamped and etched alpha, and numeric characters, or any combination
  • The serialization of metal takes specialty dies and equipment


SCN has developed numerous products that utilize 8-12 separate processes to create eye-catching and personalized designs that are guaranteed to get your product noticed. From laser-etched domes to formed metal nameplates inserted into an ABS plastic injected mold, we offer extensive customization options for your project needs.
