Per U.S. Army regulations, our nameplates are 1" x 3" and feature a white beveled border. White block lettering is used to display the wearer’s last name only—no punctuation symbols or special characters area allowed. Engraving will be in all capital letters unless you specify otherwise in the “Comments” field displayed during the checkout process.

Please enter your last name in the field provided to the right. If you leave this field empty, we will use the last name associated with the customer account or billing information (for Guest accounts).

The May 2017 revision of the Army’s Guide to the Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia authorizes the wear of nameplates with the Army Service / Dress Blue Uniform, Maternity Dress and Service Uniforms, Garrison Culinary Uniforms (formerly designated as Food Service Uniform), and the black pullover sweater. (Previous editions of the manual included guidance for wear of nameplates on Hospital Duty Uniforms, or HDU, but all references to HDUs were removed without explanation.)

Pinpointing precisely when the Army first authorized the wear of nameplates on Service and Dress uniforms is difficult because older Army uniform regulations are not readily available to the public. According to The Encyclopedia of United States Army Insignia and Uniforms, cloth tape with the wearer’s last name and the phrase “U.S. ARMY” in block letters were officially added to work fatigues in October 1953, while an image from the same book shows a commander wearing a nameplate on the right pocket flap of a khaki blouse in 1955.
