What is “Laser Engraving”

Laser engraving is a permanent branding process that engraves artwork into the surface of the product using a laser. Different materials produce different engraving finishes, to avoid uncertainty pre-production samples are recommended.

Advantages of Laser Engraving

  • Higher perceived value than other forms of branding.
  • The branding becomes part of the surface and is permanent.
  • Large branding areas available on curved products.
  • Can produce variable data such as individual names.
  • The product can be shipped straight away after being engraved.

Limitations of Laser Engraving

  • Fine detail can be lost on smaller products like pens.

Artwork Requirements for Laser Engraving

We will set up the artwork for you and supply an electronic draft to help you visualise what the end result will look like. There are some restrictions we have to take into consideration when setting up your file:

  • Artwork must be supplied in editable vector format.
  • Fonts are advised to be converted to outlines/objects to avoid font conflicts.
