Laser engraving produces a permanent, crisp & highly detailed mark, engraving images at up to 1200 dots per
inch. Due to the precision of our laser beam, even the smallest detail can be engraved. The laser is acurate
and fast. The engraved logo can last a life time. No part of the laser actually touches the material being
cut or engraved. The better the artwork going into the laser the better the engraving. What you put in is what you
get out. We will advise on received artwork and bitmaps before we engrave. EPS and original artwork files are
the best. See our listing below.
