Tell me about your engraving machines ?

  • We use 2 of 60 Watt Laser Engravers, both are among the worlds leading brands, made in USA and Austria.
  • We also use a (very expensive) Fabric / Carbon/ Varispeed Chemical filtration unit, for enviro and health reasons
  • We have rotary attachments, enabling us to engrave round items such as glassware, torches etc.

 

Can the Laser engrave colours ?

  • No. It removes material using intensified light, it doesn’t actually print anything to the material being engraved…
  • With some materials we can engrave out your design, and then colour fill the engraving with various types of paints etc.
  • We can also accurately cut various adhesive materials into the pattern of your design and stick to the desired object, such as a plaque etc.
