Nameplates embossed with figures of Hindu gods like
Krishna, Ganesha, Lakshmi, Saraswathi and Durga and symbols like Om, lingam and swastika can now be found at the entrances of many homes and offices. Vaastu Shastra suggests that such embossed nameplates bring good luck.
The cost of designing such nameplates varies from region to region and depends upon the decoration and style. These name plates come in different materials like terracotta, wood finish, bamboo, copper and glass.
