We’ve all seen them, those boring old name plates. Walking into a job interview, visiting a friend at work, these are the usual places they hide. These things are made of plastic and cheap metal, with an engraving that you can hardly read from the doorway. These products aren’t made locally. Most likely, they’re shipped in from overseas where thousands of other name plates were made exactly the same way. These nameplates don’t scream quality. What does that say about the person whose name is on the nameplate? It says they’re just average!

Sometimes, we get asked why we use hardwoods like oak and walnut when we create our unique desk name plates. Here’s why. We want the name on our desk name plate to look original! Hardwood suggests durability, stability, and perseverance. Aside from all of these symbolic reasons, we also have practical reasons for choosing hard woods for our unique desk name plates. Hard woods last longer than softer woods, and we want our unique desk name plates to stand the test of time. That’s also why we create our nameplates from scratch. It’s the best way to ensure that our products will be up to our exacting standards. After cutting our pieces, we stain our walnut darker to stand out against the oak, which will help the name of the person on our nameplate and their profession stand out. We offer a number of symbols associated with professions, such as law, medicine, and pharmacy. At the very ending of the building process, we rub all of our name plates down with a lemon oil finish, which helps maintain the natural beauty of the wood over time.

We get our hardwoods from the Midwest and Arkansas, right in the heart of America. We’re proud that all of our products are made from American wood and by American hands. We create the highest quality unique desk name plates on the market. Invest in a unique hardwood desk name plate instead of something made from cheap plastic. At the end of the day, you will be pleased that you went with a trusted company that will create the best name plate possible for you or the person you’re buying for.
