UL labels provide a quick and easy way to communicate that your equipment has been manufactured to the highest standards. As a UL approved supplier, MPC is authorized to reproduce the UL mark on nameplates, labels and tags, decals, signs, made of pressure-sensitive substrates including aluminum, polyester, polycarbonate, vinyl, and others. MPC’s UL labels can contain static and variable copy/data, watermarks and other anti-counterfeit features, and machine-readable barcodes or QR codes for easy access to product certification information.
Manufacturers must choose labels that can withstand exposure to the hazards specified in UL 969. MPC has extensive experience designing and manufacturing nameplates, signs, labels and tags, and other markings in compliance with UL 969 Standards for Marking and Labeling and many other regulatory standards, offering the durability required to remain readable throughout the life of your assets.

Metalphoto of Cincinnati offers nameplates in a variety of standard material options, including our proprietary Metalphoto® substrate. Metalphoto is photosensitive anodized aluminum, which features a silver and black photographic image that is embedded within the sapphire-hard anodic layer of the aluminum. This combination gives a Metalphoto part an outdoor life of over 20 years, and makes it extremely resistant to damage or degradation from environmental factors like abrasion, UV fading, harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and corrosion from saltwater exposure. The National Association of Graphic and Product Identification Manufacturers (GPI) Industry Standards and Practices Manual identifies Metalphoto as the most durable printed aluminum substrate available, and it has been trusted by industry, government and military organizations like Caterpillar, The US Navy, NASA, and Boeing for over 50 years. Metalphoto offers many unique features including:
