Mechanical Diamond Drag Engraving is the most common engraving method used in the gift, award and recognition industry. We use diamond gravers that create fine, V-shaped lines into the metal surface. We make a common practice of tracing the letters two or three times. This helps to smooth and broaden the stroke, making it more visible, especially with tone-on-tone engraving like this.
Mechanical Rotary Engraving is typically performed on metals and plastics where we rout the design into the material with a rotating cutter in a motorized spindle.
CO2 Laser engraving is ideal for both surface engraving and cutting holes or custom shapes in some materials. The laser will vaporize the surface of the material at which it is pointed, but at higher powers can precisely cut materials up to 1/4″ thick. We use our lasers to surface engrave and cut wood, laminated plastics and cast acrylics. We also surface engrave color-coated metals.
The CO2 laser is unable to mark raw metals such as stainless steel, so a chemical layer is sprayed onto the surface first. When the laser comes in contact with the chemical layer, the chemical is permanently bonded to the material. The excess spray is then rinsed off leaving a permanent black image on the surface.

Text, computer graphics and hand drawings are etched into solid surfaces such s glass, crystal, marble and granite using a fine silicon carbide grit and special carving techniques. We create our images using two different methods. On contoured and cylindrical pieces we use a photo resist film that is developed by exposure to ultraviolet light. On flat products we create images using a polyester resist and our laser engraving machine. Very fine detail is achieved using either process. You can proudly present any personalized piece of glass, crystal or marble that has been run through our quality customization process.
Sublimation is a process where special inks, applied to a transfer paper, get transferred to a polyester-coated material when various heat and pressure are applied. The inks transfer and bond to the coating on the material giving a smooth and durable finish. Sublimation produces stunning and vibrant colors.
There are other heat transfer methods that only apply color to the surface of the substrate resulting in a finish that can be easily scratched or damaged.
