Yes, it's thin; hardly more than aluminum foil. My original was thicker, but still flimsy enough that it would get mauled if you accidentally leaned against it. In fact, it had gotten all wrinkled over the years and just looked ugly. I took the new one and traced it onto some 20-gauge sheet steel. I cut the outline out of the steel in the same shape, but an eighth inch or so smaller at all the edges. Then I drilled out the hole in the right place. I took some epoxy and glued the steel plate to the backside of the new tag. Worked great. Now it feels substantial and weighty and if I accidentally touch it, it won’t bend. And you can’t tell that the backer plate is there without removing it and flipping it over. So, I could work with it. But, yeah, the lettering should be white. Not a super part.
