Custom Metal Engraving

Metal is an ideal medium for engraving because of its strength, visual appeal, versatility, and malleability. The practice of metal engraving is connected to the rich art form of printmaking, as engraved copper plates were crucial to producing paper currency since the early 1800s.

Classically, engraved metal plates facilitated printing book pages and detailed illustrations. Skillfully executed images, ornamentation, and text were expertly engraved into metal sheets using a burin by hand.

The following items benefit from metal engraving techniques:

  • Fine jewelry
  • Award plaques and metals
  • Personalized metal drinkware
  • ID tags
  • Currency

Today, lasers are an optimal tool to engrave metals of various hardness, whether titanium, brass, copper, stainless steel or aluminum. Engraving metal allows for lettering, serial numbers, logos, and decorative designs to permanently alter the surface of the medium.

MD Custom Engraving relies on lasers to execute impeccably detailed lettering, illustrations, and text onto metal surfaces. Compared to traditional hand tools for engraving, modern lasers are relatively low-power and allow one to make accurate, fast, legible markings.

Check out some of the following metals that are suited for laser engraving…

  • Alloyed Steels
  • Anodized Aluminum
  • Carbides
  • Coated Metals
  • Hardened Metals
  • Precious Metals
  • Stainless Steel
