Company Profile

Texas Etching & Awards, Inc. has been a manufacturer of
quality industrial nameplates and award products for
over 30 years. We specialize in chemical etching, screen
printing, computerized and laser engraving on a variety
of materials. The following descriptions may be helpful
in determining the type of nameplate needed for your
particular application.
Chemical Etching: This process is used on stainless
steel, anodized *aluminum and brass. It is the most
durable type of nameplate we offer. Copy is permanently
recessed into the metal, or left in relief (etched
background), through an acid etching process. The etched
areas are filled with baked acrylic enamel for added
legibility and appearance. These nameplates are abrasive
resistant and suitable for harsh outdoor environments.
*Enamel is not used on colored anodized aluminum. The
anodized metal itself provides the color, with
contrasting natural aluminum as the etched copy or

Screen Printing: A process used when simply printing the
copy on the base material is adequate. It is most
practical for multiple color combinations, economy in
large quantities, and use on a variety of materials
other than metal. Although not as durable as etching, a
screen printed nameplate will withstand certain types of
outdoor use.

Engraving: (Computerized or Lasered): Processes of
mechanically cutting or lasering the copy into metals
and plastics. This process is used primarily for small
quantities, plastic nameplates, and adding information
to nameplates or plaques already printed of etched.
