Name Plates: The Ultimate Desk Accessories

By: Chris Robertson

At a company's annual recognition luncheon, all employees received beautiful desk name plates. Each crystal name plate was engraved with the company logo and personalized with the name of the employee. At the end of the luncheon, a relatively new employee commented, "I've worked at many places, but this is the first place I've been given such a beautiful name plate. It shows how much this company values and appreciates its employees."

With their excellent clarity and sparkle, crystal name plates are the utmost in elegance. They cannot be surpassed for upscale elegance. However, high quality name plates can be made from a number of other materials. Glass, for example, has a cool, clean modern look. Acrylic desk name plates have the look of glass without being as heavy or fragile. In fact, acrylic weighs only half as much as glass. Laser engraving from the back makes the names look as if they are floating.

Marble symbolizes solidity, tradition, and accomplishment-worthy attributes for any person or organization. No two pieces of marble are alike, so each marble name plate is unique. Expertly engraved, these heavy name plates are dramatic and impressive.

Piano finish desk name plates come in contemporary and traditional styles. A high gloss finish with either gold or silver metal accents makes each piece a striking emblem of success and leadership. To make a piano finish, a wooden piece is sanded, filled to create a smooth surface, and then sanded again. It is then stained and sanded once more. Up to 20 coats of polyester are then applied to create the piano-finished look.

Hand-finished wooden name plates are made from a variety of hardwoods, including walnut, alder, and mahogany. The name is engraved in brass. Some styles integrate a business card holder into the design.

Slide-in frames with plastic name plates are economical yet attractive. They are well suited to non-profit organizations, where economy is paramount. High quality anodized aluminum frames never tarnish. The plastic name plates come in various colors, sizes, and fonts-which means they can be unique, stylish, and attractive.

Name plates make great corporate gifts for employees, but they also make ideal personal gifts. What better gift for a friend's new job, or a spouse's promotion. Maybe a classy-looking name plate will inspire a new graduate to find a good job. Even the entrepreneur with a home office deserves a name plate, even if no one else sees it! It may sound like a clich, but seeing your name on your desk makes you feel good and motivates you to work hard.

A number of online merchants sell functional and attractive name plates in a variety of materials. Before you choose where to shop, find out how long the company has been in business and ask for customer references. Make sure the company guarantees its products-that it will either correct any problems or refund your money. Ask how long it will take to make your name plates. And of course, make sure you know the cost, including set-up fees and shipping.
