Engraving Basics *
For the most part, engraving is cutting material away for something: paint, glass, wood, leather ... stuff like that.
When you're designing something to be engraved it's easiest if you think of engraving like a black and white line drawing. You can't engrave in color and frequently it's difficult to have grayscale (different shades of gray) in an engraving. Simpler is better.
At Charlie Mike Engraving, we use a CO2 laser engraver. So, not only can we engrave on the usual (glass, wood, leather) but also fabric, paper, stone and ceramics. This opens us up to huge possibilities. Want to try something unusual? Ask! Let's see what we can create.
* There are exceptions to almost everything I've just told you ... It's rather awkward.
Process & Time Frame
There are so. many. variables. when it comes to pricing. I say this upfront so you don't think I'm messing with you. Here is a short list:
We talk. I ask you about who the gift is for and what kind of impact you're going for. We'll bounce some ideas around and see what we come up with.
If you prefer the interwebs, browse through the site. When you find something that grabs your antennae, click the Request a Quote button and fill out the form.
After you and I agree on what kind of design you'd like, I get to work.
Of course we do!
... And, of course, there are many variables in terms of pricing.
200 pint glasses with the exact same design engraved on each one will get a better discount than 200 pint glasses with the same design but a different name personalized on each one. Makes sense, right?
Give us a call and we'll talk through it.
