ID Plates has been around almost 60 years and is still investing heavily in the future.  In 2017, we saw a unique opportunity to fill a niche for our customers.  You were wanting custom items but you really weren't interested in paying out the wazoo for expensive dies all the time.  A decision was made to purchase a very large piece of machinery (approximately 10' x 10'!) - a metal laser cutter that enables us to create custom shapes/sizes in seconds for your customers.  With specialized software, designs can be programmed to create intricate items out of a variety of substrates. 


openersWhy should you care that we have a laser cutting machine?

  • Your customer needs blanks, name badges, or lapel pins shaped like their logo (or balloon, tiger, paw print, airplane…whatever)
  • You’d like to test the waters for a new exclusive shape or plaque before you go all in for a die
  • Your client only wants one control panel for their new manufacturing line
  • Your client can’t decide whether they want the balloon or the tiger without seeing a sample
  • It’s the only way to make those beautiful 3D metal ornaments

Now that you know our laser cutter is at your disposal, any new customers come to mind?
