Engraving is a great idea to personalize a gift. With engraving, each gift becomes special and unique. But which materials can be engraved to make a gift a real keepsake? We give you a hint!
Engraving can make a gift last for years. But do you know exactly what materials can be engraved? We suggest, where you can put your engraving.
Engraving on jewelry
Engraving is most often done on jewelry. This is a great way to emphasize the uniqueness of the gift, especially if it is an anniversary or a birthday gift. However, it is worth remembering that engraving is best done on as flat a surface as possible. So choose jewelry on which it will be possible, for example, a bracelet with a delicate plate or a pendant with a plain medal. By making an engraving on such a surface, you can be sure that it will look perfect and the inscription or date will not be curved in any way.
You can also engrave on a watch, which is also a great idea for a gift. In this case you can choose to put the inscription on the back of the watch as well as on the strap because engraving can also be done on leather and leather-like materials.
Engraving on wood
Different kinds of personalized wood decorations and accessories are also a great gift idea. For example, you can choose to have your chosen artwork or message engraved on cutting boards or other wooden kitchen accessories, on decorations for your living room or on wooden statuettes
When it comes to wood, you really have a lot of room for improvement because laser engraving is most commonly used for this type of wood or plywood decoration. What does this mean? Laser engraving is a process that involves the strong heating of a material by a laser beam generated by a CO2 laser.
Engraving on glass
Laser engraving can also be done on glass. So if you’re thinking of buying glasses, stemware or decanters as a gift for a loved one and you want to personalize them a bit and give them a unique character, then such engraving is the perfect way. As with wood, you don’t have to limit yourself to just lettering on glass either – laser engraving allows you to put illustrations and pictures on glass materials as well.
