Add your logo, team name or personalized inscription to wood plaques, crystal vases, wine glasses or bottles full of your favourite beverage.
The possibilities are endless!
These days laser engraving is one of the most versatile of all engraving methods. Not only does the choice of materials offer limitless possibilities but the quality that can be achieved is breath-taking.
Wood is a common choice for laser engraving and different woods produce differing shades within the grain itself for a more distinctive effect. Wood can either be engraved or, if the piece is 1/4 of an inch or less in thickness, it can be cut into intricate shapes.
Granite and Marble
Both granite and marble can make beautiful lasting memories. It is possible to engrave an inscription, a logo, even a picture and the quality is astounding!
Advertising and Signage
With laser engraving there are endless possibilities for advertising and signage. There are so many materials that can be engraved and with such a wide variety of colours and finishes that the possibilities are limited only by the imagination of the customer.
Unique gifts, awards and recognition items can all be created using our laser engraving services. Substances such as crystal, acrylic and glass can all be engraved to perfectly match your needs.
