Diamond Scratch Engraving
Diamond scratch engraving is exactly what it sounds like in that a diamond is used to cut into the surface of the item being engraved. Typically this method is used on metal giftware, trophy/award plates and jewellery. We provide both computerized and manual engraving, with the latter typically being used on items that are either difficult to hold (clamp onto) or that present an unusual surface. Because it is a simple diamond scratch, this method works best on softer metals such as aluminum, brass and pewter. Harder metals like stainless steel and titanium yield finer, more delicate lines when engraved.
Inside Band Engraving
Inside band engraving on rings requires very specialized equipment. Each ring design is unique and must be evaluated on a piece-by-piece basis to determine whether or not it can be engraved and what limitations might apply.
Though custom lettering and/or graphics can be applied (setup charges may apply), engraving is typically limited to specialized fonts/typestyles.
Our Epilogue engraving systems make use of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lasers to literally burn lettering and graphics into various materials. The system can be used to engrave on lacquered metals, wood, plastics, leather and a variety of other materials.
Not all materials are suitable for laser engraving. Those we provide yield reliable, attractive results, but materials supplied by you, the customer, may be unknown to us and produce unexpected results, or be completely unengravable with this system. We are happy to advise you before attempting the engraving.
This process allows us to bring colour to areas where engraving alone cannot. For example, it can be used to print full colour graphics, logos or photographs onto award plaques, coffee mugs, key chains, and a variety of other promotional items. The system works best when printing on light colours like white, gold or silver.
