Laser engraving is a process that uses a laser to etch designs, logos, or text onto a product's surface. This method is commonly used on items made of metal, wood, and glass, such as pens, keychains, and wine glasses.
The laser beam removes a thin layer of the product's surface, creating a deep, permanent mark. Laser engraving is ideal for creating high-quality, precise designs and text that will not fade or wear away over time.
Colourize - UV Printing
UV printing is a digital printing process that uses ultraviolet light to dry and cure the ink as it is printed onto a product's surface. This method is commonly used on items made of metal, plastic, acrylic, and other non-porous materials.
UV printing allows for full-colour printing and can produce high-quality images and designs that are resistant to fading, scratching, and wear. This method is ideal for creating intricate designs, patterns, and photographs that are difficult to achieve through other customization methods.
Etching is a process that involves using acid or a chemical solution to create a design or text on a product's surface. This method is commonly used on items made of glass, crystal, and metal.
The etching process involves coating the product's surface with a protective layer, then using a template or stencil to apply the acid or chemical solution to the desired areas. The solution eats away at the surface, creating a permanent mark that is smooth to the touch. Etching produces a subtle, elegant effect that is ideal for creating personalized gifts or commemorative items.
Colour filling an etching is a process of adding ink or paint to the lines or grooves of an etched design to enhance its visibility or decorative effect.
You can choose to colour fill the etching. This process can help to bring out the details of the etching, create contrast between the design and the paper, and add visual interest to the final piece.
Traditional engraving uses a diamond-tipped tool to create a design or text on a product's surface. This method is commonly used on items made of metal, such as aluminum, brass, and stainless steel.
The diamond-tipped tool scratches the surface of the metal, creating a deep, permanent mark. Diamond drag engraving produces a fine, crisp line that is perfect for creating detailed designs, logos, and text. This method is also known for producing a tactile effect, as the engraved areas will have a slightly raised texture.
