Our company combines experience, advanced technology, and detailed processes with specialized material capabilities to control consistency and deliver high-quality products every time. 

We have marked the machines of customers across the world. We are a robust supplier to America’s tool and die industry. Besides making custom engraved plates for the military, our full-service team produces custom engraved nameplates for equipment at breweries, VIN and Hull identification plates for automobile and trailer manufacturers, OEM locker tags, name plate manufacturers and more. We can identify your machines too!

Machine Plates Online grew out of Competitor Awards & Engraving Inc., an awards engraving company launched by owner Karl Scheife over 30 years ago. Scheife leverages his vast experience in the awards industry to create custom identification products and move from quote to order completion within five days to satisfy customer demand for durable and well-made machine identification solutions.
