Our Engraving Machines

Engraving Machine

We use a brand new professional engraving machine, designed specifically for engraving products of all shapes and sizes.

It is one of the best on the market and uses a diamond tip to engrave with very high accuracy, ensuring that even the smallest details are captured in the desired way.

We have hundreds of fonts already stored on the machine, and can engrave logos, motifs and other graphics with ease. See below for more information.

 


Text Engraving

Engraving a special message onto one of our products is an easy process and comes with great results.

We offer a number of different fonts on most items and we've tried to pick a good selection. However, we have a font library of many hundreds of fonts, and can probably engrave in any font if you're able to supply the font file.

If you have any specific engraving instructions, please let us know when you place your order. If no instructions are given, size and layout is left to the engraver's discretion.

Engraving costs vary depending on the item, please see individual items for more details.

 


Logo Engraving:

Customers must provide artwork to be engraved, we do not offer an artwork preparation service. For best results when engraving logos, artwork should follow these guidelines:

  • - black and white images, with white backgrounds - photographs are not suitable

  • - clear, crisp lines with smooth edges

  • - no additional text (text included within a logo or clan crest is OK) - all text should be processed separately as 'Text Engraving' for a better engraving

  • - as large as possible (preferably greater than 500 pixels in height and width) - the image will be scaled down to fit appropriately on the item

  • - should be supplied as a .EPS (preferred),  .JPG or .TIF

Engraving Library

Engraving Library

We have a huge selection of images and graphics which are already prepared for engraving in our Engraving Library.

From clan crests, to cats and dogs, to gothic symbols and lots more. If you're looking to add something extra to your engraving, browse our library.

 


Engraving Placement:

Our default understanding is that engraving goes on the front of the hip flask, unless it’s decorated, then it goes on the back. Text will usually be centred vertically and horizontally. You can tell us exactly what you want in the Additional Instructions text box on the product page. If you want something different from this, contact us and we’ll be happy to talk about it.
