Decorative Metal Plating

International Metal Products specializes in high volume decorative electrolytic nickel, 24 carat gold and imitation chrome plating for functional and jewelry quality finishes. International Metal Products was born out of the Ames Plating Company that produced swords during the Civil War. Now IMP produces pen clips demonstrating to us anyway that, "The pen is mightier than the sword." The jewel of that beautiful pen is the clip. It not only draws the attention of the eye but is functional and can even be a marketing tool.
