Decoration Techniques

Deep Etch  Our Finest Quality Technique

Deep etch is our highest caliber etching technique, providing the ultimate appearance in etched crystal. Your crest or logo is crisply cut, rendering a detailed and permanent dimensional image. Please note: Etching will appear deeper in bold open areas of a logo and less deep in fine detailed areas such as copy.


Light Etch  When Budget is Paramount

Light etch is a delicate but permanent surface etch. As illustrated, the light etch technique does necessitate small breaks in any enclosed letter or area. When budgetary concerns are paramount, light etching provides a quality, yet economical solution.

Items orders in light etch require a minimum quantity of 36 pieces of that item with the same copy.



ColorMark  Create Unique Awards with Color

The UV printing process allows for printing on almost any flat object or surface, which lends itself well to glass, crystal & metal finishes. Printing with UV allows for any logo or text to be printed without limitations, producing unique and colorful awards and gifts.


Engraving  Ideal for Engraving Metal Trophies, Gifts & Awards

Diamond engraving uses a non-rotating tool with a cone-shaped diamond tip, which is dragged with pressure through metal, leaving a beautiful impression. Diamond-drag creates quality engraving that compares to hand engraving. The width of stroke is constant and does not vary in depth.

Diamond-drag is recommended for soft metals such as silver, copper, pewter, aluminum and nickel.


Laser Engraving 

Laser engraving creates a digital "burned" image from a directed laser beam, which vaporizes the substrate material. The resulting image is detailed, permanent and indelible.
