Laser Engraving

Laser engraving is when a logo is burned into the product with a laser replicating the logo with precise accuracy

During laser engraving, a logo is burned into the product with a laser replicating the logo with precise accuracy. Using this technique burns off the top layer of the product revealing the layer beneath, therefore the colour of the engraving will be determined by the colour of the underlying layer. This process is a permanent method of branding and the tonal shades make it an upmarket, subtle choice.

  • Perfect for awards, BBQ accessories, asks, keyholders, pens and mugs
