Laser engraving is the practice of using lasers to engrave a surface by cutting into the material to create a design. This process takes away material to leave behind a permanent mark (usually words or a design for signs). Laser engraving does not involve inks, or tool bits that cause the surface to wear out. This means laser engraved signs last much longer then other sign types. Read on to learn more about the benefits of this process and don't hesitate to email us if you have any questions.

Accuracy is always extremely important when it comes to creating a good business sign. Laser engraving increases accuracy because it is computer controlled, which allows for the creation of more complex designs than traditional engraving methods.


Traditionally, engraving is a time-consuming process because the material has to be scratched by hand using specialized tools. Laser engravers are usually fitted onto a production line, which significantly reduces the manufacturing time of business signs. This can mean a difference from hours to minutes to get a sign engraved. To find out more about the time it will take to make your lasered sign click here.

A faster production time means less wear and tear on the tools involved in the process. Also, since the laser does not come into contact with the material being engraved, all of the pieces of the machine last longer, making replacement costs cheaper. This in turn makes the sign itself less expensive than a traditionally engraved sign. To find out more about the final cost of your lasered sign click here.
