Our engraving department can offer the main types of engraving including – Hand, Machine, Computer, Seal, Photo, Glass and Handwriting.
Hand Engraving – Can be used on most surfaces with the exception of steel, glass and stone. This offers the most options, designs such as company logos, inscriptions and motifs such as animals, family crests and signatures can all be matched. Text can be engraved in any font.
Machine Engraving – Can be used on more surfaces including glass and steel. This is the most common form of engraving but it has its limitations as it is restricted to certain fonts, normally script and block, single or two line, this is adequate for most standard jewellery e.g. Signet Rings, I.D. Bracelets, Tankards, Lockets etc. We can also engrave inside wedding rings by machine.
Seal Engraving – This is most commonly a family crest which is engraved into a signet ring. Most people submit a sample of the crest to be engraved however, we can locate crests if necessary. It is a specialist skill and because of the cost involved these items always require an estimate. The engraving takes approximately. 1-4 weeks.
Handwriting engraving – We can scan examples of handwriting and use that as a font for engraving.
