Why should we turn to laser engraving

What can be laser engraved
As mentioned above, there are several areas of activity in which the laser engraving technique is used. From jewelry to advertising materials, but there are also other things of different sizes and weights which can be laser engraved. Laser engraving can also be applied to products in the pharmaceutical, chemical, but also in the food industry.
When it comes to engraving individual items, costs can be small and medium. These can range from 20$ to 100$. Costs can be estimated at 200$ or more in case engraving is done on larger objects.
If the same engraving has to be applied more than once to a large number of items, for example when producing advertising material with an engraved slogan or logo, the cost of engraving depends on several factors:
- The size and duration of the engraving time;
- Auxiliary staff used for a large engraving;
- Other additional requirements expressed by the customer;
- What else can influence the cost of laser engraving
The cost of a laser engraving can also be influenced by the engraving resolution. If individual engravings are made or engravings applied to several products with the same image, for example logo, slogan, etc.
The effort of the engraver (s) is directly proportional to the perceived cost. If only one person deals with engraving, the cost will depend on the size of the engraved product. The larger the object which is engraved by only one person, the higher the costs. If you work in a team, the costs for the client may be lower, as it saves working time, but the staff needs to be supplemented.
- The machines used for laser engraving are another factor which determines the cost of the engraving work.
- The type and size of the material on which the engraving is necessary also determines the final price of the engraving.
- Engraving quality;
- Supplier’s rates where materials are purchased
This includes installation and sample creation fees, and costs can be calculated per minute.
Having an engraved accessory is the way you can turn that object into a truly unique one. Think for example of a watch that you like very much, but seeing it in many people, you give up buying it. By engraving it, you give the watch a special note, personalized for you, with data made especially for you.
Although in some places the cost of an engraving may seem expensive, the beauty of the engraving and the charm of an engraved product will surprise you in a pleasant way. You can engrave both objects from personal props, or you can buy them from the centers that deal with engraving, as many of those who engrave also have objects for sale.
