At the GM Nameplate Seattle division, we recently produced aluminum elevator tags for the design firm, The Image Group, with the end customer being Amazon.
The elevator tags were made of .030” thick stainless steel with an etch-and-fill process. When we first started working on the project, we looked into using metal photo and aluminum for the material. However, the etch-and-fill strategy on the stainless ended up being the most viable option for what the customer was looking for. We created around 60 elevator tags for the Amazon campus and have since been installed.
The job came from an unannounced drop-in visit to our Seattle division, and the parts were shipped out to the customer within a month. This project came to us differently than most of our jobs but it’s great to see how quickly the job was completed. The customer needed the project created quickly and since the quantity was small, we were luckily able to meet their time crunch. We went through quoting, proofing, production and shipment within 4 weeks of the initial contact. It was a fast turn-around with a great final product.
