  1. Nameplate

    A nameplate identifies and displays a person or product's name. Name plates are usually shaped as rectangles but are also seen in other shapes, sometimes taking on the shape of someone’s name. The primary use of name plates is for informative and commercial purposes. Whereas name tags tend to be worn on uniforms or clothing, name plates tend to be mounted onto an object or physical space. Nameplates are also distinct from name plaques. Plaques are items of larger dimensions that are designed to communicate more information than a name and title.
