Taking Subsurface Engraving to the Next Level: Applications and Ideas

In a previous article, we introduced you to our subsurface laser engraving. Now, let's dive deeper into how this versatile technique can transform your glass awards.


Where Subsurface Engraving Shines

●     Complex Designs: Intricate logos, detailed artwork, or even photorealistic portraits – if you can imagine it, subsurface engraving can likely bring it to life within glass. The 3D capabilities truly excel with complex subject matter.


●     Durability: Because the engraving is within the glass itself, it's incredibly resistant to wear and tear. Your design will retain its beauty for years to come.


●     Show stopping Visuals: The combination of subsurface engraving and full-colour UV printing opens a world of possibilities. Think vibrant logos set against a backdrop of etched detail, or a 3D image that seemingly interacts with printed colour elements.


Ideas to Spark Your Imagination

●     Personalised Gifts: Capture a special moment with a 3D portrait etched into glass, or add a heartfelt message in elegant 2D engraving.


●     Corporate Awards: Elevate recognition awards with a company logo in 3D, or combine subsurface engraving with UV printing for a vibrant and multifaceted effect.


●     Commemorative Pieces: Celebrate milestones or historical events with intricately etched scenes, adding text or dates for context.


●     Unique Home Décor: From personalised paperweights and desk ornaments to decorative art pieces, subsurface engraving adds a touch of sophistication.


Subsurface laser engraving isn't just a decoration method – it's a way to create truly one-of-a-kind works of art. Its versatility, durability and appeal make it an ideal choice for those seeking something truly special.
