Orange & Black Metalphoto® Anodized Aluminum Plates with Acrylic Pressure Sensitive Adhesive

One of the most attractive features of the Metalphoto® process is that the photographic image affords extreme detail and contrast at ANY size.

Drake Industries in Austin, Texas offers plates and tags manufactured with the Metalphoto® process in bold colors as well as the traditional black/natural aluminum background (silver).

The Metalphoto® process burns images, letters, and colors into photosensitive anodized aluminum.  Images and letters will never scrape off the way they might with silk screening.   The integrity of the aluminum is never compromised the way that it is when metal is etched or engraved.
