Nameplate Processes & Durability
The printing process and materials used for your nameplate will affect its durability and longevity. Generally, digital printing will last 2-3 years on paper, 4 years on vinyl and around 7 years on metal. Screen printing can last up to 12-13 years on metal, but only 5 years on film and 2-3 on paper. Etching and Metalphoto are the most durable processes used on metal nameplates and can last up to 30 years.
