GM Nameplate of Seattle is offering a new “ElectraGraphics Business Jet Art” line that employs 14-karat gold or chrome on a stainless-steel background to recreate virtually any image or existing picture in raised graphic form. The process begins with the application of a film layer with the image desired. A subsequent chemical process creates a graphic replica of that image in gold or chrome on the steel surface. The process has been in use in the automobile and yachting industries and, according to a spokesman, GM Nameplate is offering it for the first time to business aircraft owners and operators.
