MTM Products

MTM is one of the leading UK manufacturers and suppliers of self-adhesive labels, aluminium nameplates, stainless steel nameplates, graphic overlays, engraved products including tactile/braille, vinyl cut decals and emergency lighting signage to original equipment manufacturers in the UK and Mainland Europe.

The company has been established for over 40 years and continuously invests in training and state of the art printing and ancillary equipment which enables us to offer high quality products and excellent service at competitive prices.

We will work with your technical and commercial staff to ensure that our product is suitable for the operating environment and application in which your equipment operates. Common issues that we can prevent becoming problems are:

  • Fading colours when labels are exposed to direct sunlight over extended periods
  • Labels not fitting into recesses – we need to know what dimensional tolerances are required to select the optimum manufacturing processes
  • Holes and LED windows not lining up with metal work or plastic mouldings
  • Labels not adhering well to surfaces e.g. low surface energy materials, cast steel, heavily textured materials
  • Safety symbols not complying with International standards


We carry out a technical review of your requirements at the enquiry stage to ensure we fully understand the application and if we are not sure about something, we will ask you.

We have sophisticated equipment to measure colour, colour contrast, ink adhesion and many other properties to ensure that your product will comply to British, European or International standards if applicable.

Our aim is to make your life easier by being a trustworthy partner who will add our expertise to yours to ensure the product is right first time. The way we do things is customer driven. We are a service company that makes things.

We have the capability to cost effectively manufacture everything from a single label or nameplate to many thousands

MTM are certificated to the International Quality and Environmental standards ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 and are a UL Authorised label supplier.

Our Products

Self-Adhesive labels

We manufacture single and multi-colour surface printed self-adhesive vinyl, polyolefin and polyester labels for both short term and long-term applications.

We have many cutting options to provide shaped labels or labels with holes efficiently regardless of the order quantity.

Aluminium Nameplates

MTM supply aluminium serial plates, model number and branding plates using both screen printing and digital printing equipment. We also have the finishing equipment, including CNC routing to provide rectangular, circular or complex shapes with mounting holes and/or adhesive backing.

The printing of all our aluminium plates is sub-surface i.e. sealed under the anodised layer of the aluminium.

We stock satin finish aluminium in thicknesses of 0.3mm, 0.5mm. 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm and matt finish in 1.5mm and 3mm.

We supply nameplates with sequential number, bar codes or QR codes using digital printing, dot matrix stamping or laser etching.

Stainless Steel Nameplates

We supply both surface printed and laser etched plates with holes and/or adhesive backing.

Our standard is to use T316 stainless steel but we also offer bespoke solutions using Super Duplex stainless steel for extremely harsh environments.

We hold stocks of 0.9mm, 1.2mm and 1.5mm brushed (dull polished) T316 stainless steel.

Our in-house facilities are particularly suited to small to medium quantities including plates with sequential numbers or variable information. For large quantities we have the option of working with a European partner company with world class chemical etching facilities.

Graphic Overlays

We offer graphic overlays printed on the reverse of polyester, polycarbonate or mark-resist PVC with adhesive backing and the following options:

  • Cut outs
  • LED frosted windows
  • Tactile/braille
  • Embossed buttons
  • Photo luminescent “glow in the dark” background
  • Gloss, velvet gloss, matt velvet or brushed steel effect finish
  • Dimensional tolerances down to +/-0.3mm

Engraved Products

We have modern equipment to manufacture anything from a simple numbered disc to a complex control panel in either aluminium or plastic laminate using either laser or rotary engraving techniques.

We supply tactile/braille labels for lockers or safety applications.

Vinyl Cut and print and plot decals

We manufacture decals with pre-spaced lettering and carrier tape using either top branded CAD vinyl or printed material if a specific colour is required.

CAD vinyl is preferable for long term outdoor applications and is available in many colours.

Decals supplied by MTM are applied to machines, specialist vehicles and construction equipment.

Emergency Lighting signage

MTM has extensive expertise in manufacturing graphics products which are illuminated.

Our products are designed to meet the stringent international standards for colour and colour contrast.

Our range includes:

  • Self-adhesive vinyl and polyolefin labels
  • Opal PETG or polycarbonate panels for back lit applications
  • LED edge illuminated panels including special acrylic material with light dispersing properties
  • Photo luminescent
  • Hidden message
