Laser (CO2) engraving is highly versatile and is only limited by the imagination of the operator and the client of the end product. Laser Engraving can be very expensive due to the amount of production time that it takes to produce the product. Laser engraving production time can be less than 1 minute to as long as 20 minutes and this all depends on the size of the piece, art, amount of text, font and font size. Laser engraving is designed to remove material by burning it away. On acrylics the engraving will appear to be white unless a fill (such as gold or black) is applied. On wood the engraving will appear to be a tone darker than the natural wood color unless a fill (such as gold or black) is applied. On painted metals the engraving will appear to be the same color as base metal (Gold for brass & Silver for Aluminum) after the painted surface is burned off. On wood & metal we will burn the front of the piece and for acrylics we usually invert the image and burn the back so your front surface on acrylics is flat. Our laser engravers are capable of engraving into wood, plastic (microsurfaced), acrylics, resins, marble, anodized aluminum, painted brass, cork, corian / avonite / fountainhead, derlin, leather, mat board, melamine, glass/crystal, and much more. We have the ability to engrave flat objects and round objects with our rotary attachment. Aside from engraving the products that we sell we’ve engraved for our customer their personal objects that include wine glasses (wedding), glass mugs (Corp. Event), Baseball Bats & Glove (Personalization), Cue Stick, Shovel Handles, Rifle Stocks, Axe Handles, custom plastic signage, etc. The only requirement is that the laser must be within 2” of the laser head while it is being engraved. Round products if they are be engraved around the object must not be longer than 16 inches. The best approach to determining if we can engrave your personal object is to bring in a sample for use to try to engrave. We can laser engrave text from our vast collection of fonts to graphic from our art library to custom art and logo.
