What’s in a Name (Plate)?
There’s a lot that goes into creating name plates. Name plates are often overlooked because they’re on the back of chairs, sides of cabinets or hidden away somewhere on a product. But, don’t be fooled. Name plates are all around you.
Think of a name plate as a name tag, like the sticky ones everyone wears when they attend meetings or parent-teacher days. A name tag is just something that labels a person, making it easy for others to remember his or her name. A name plate does the same thing—it labels an object, either in numbers, letters, graphics or a combination of all. Think of a large stadium with tens of thousands of seats. How difficult would it be for people to find their seats without the small “32A” or “Row C” tags. If each chair or row lacked a tag, how would people find their seats? lt would require people to memorize the stadium’s seats before they got there and remember their seat without any help. Point being, name plates are necessary. Extremely necessary.
DNPE is Certified: Whether you’re just starting to think about name plates and how they would benefit your business or product, are in the process of ordering name plates or are considering reordering, it’s important to make sure your name plate provider is certified in some way. One of the most popular certifications is ISO 9001:2008, which is in quality management. According to ISO’s site, “ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement). It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. In fact ISO 9001:2008 is implemented by over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries.” Name plate providers should have experience in designing and manufacturing what they’re offering you. You should feel comfortable with your name plate designers and manufacturers, and confident that you’re going to get a great product. After all, it’s your name on there.
