Nameplates are an essential component for nearly every manufacturer. From branding to compliance requirements a quality nameplate can be one of the most important components of your product. Despite being one of the smallest.

You can save up to 45% in costs by choosing a lithoprinted metal nameplate over an anodised and dyed plate. But what’s the difference?

Anodised and dyed nameplates encapsulate the dye into the anodic pores of the aluminium. So it’s difficult for chemicals and scratches to damage the print.

Lithoprinted nameplates use an extremely durable ink that is printed onto the surface of the nameplate and then oven stoved to cure the ink and create an incredibly tough bond between ink and metal.

Comparative pricing:

1000 x one colour 60mm x 30mm on .5mm mill finished aluminium.
Lithoprinted $0.68 each
Anodised $1.09 each
Overall Saving $329.00

In many instances anodised and dyed nameplates are an over engineered solution for the nameplates purpose. The extra processes involved in encapsulating the dye into the anodic pores of the aluminium are not necessary because the environment is not harsh enough. It means you’re paying to much.

By using an offset lithoprint process Sun Industries makes a significantly more affordable product that in most applications is entirely suitable for purpose. They are extremely long last with a high UV rating, resist scratches and can be printed onto all types of metals.

We guarantee the life of your lithoprinted nameplates and will spend time with you discussing the environment and uses for the nameplates.

There will be instances where Anodised nameplates are the right option.
Sun Industries is one of the few companies in Australia able to seal the anodic pores post print. Many suppliers simply use pre-anodised metal and surface print, thereby not achieving any sort of durable result.
