As the title says, I'm wondering where I can get some name plates printed up. I'm looking for something about 1mm thick (Like plasticard) and approx 1" by 3" dimensions with just some text printed on them. Failing that, does anyone have any suggestions on how to make them? I had considered printing some off, but I'm guessing that they'll end up looking naff through a normal printer (Washed out blacks, poor fidelity text - you get the gist). All help appreciated!

What kind of thing are you after? Versatile Terrain and Tabletop Forge are both used by AT players to go on their titans' bases.

Ah sorry, I should have posted an example pic. Those suggestions may be excellent for my other projects, but sadly not for what I had in mind. I'm looking for something like this:

Depends what you want it made of. Engravers such as Timpsons can do acrylic or metal, or print shops can do a good print (and laminate it).

Do you have access to laser engraver cutting machine at your local maker space? or a trophy shop nearby ..either can do those kinda tags up ..(ie who engraves the sports trophy's in your area and there is your winner as they are set up for exactly what your asking for)

They seem to have a slightly outdated business model but the products are good. I've seen them on a few golden demon plinths.

Thanks people, I think I'm sorted on which way I'm going to go. I found an excellent video on making your own, and it seems pretty doable (Also, this isn't a GD piece, so engraving isn't warranted, but thanks for the suggestions anyhow). Link below if anyone else is interested:
