Leather engraving

Engraved leather used to make wallets

Leather engraving works by removing the surface layer of the fabric. The result varies between leathers depending on the process it’s been through.

We engrave leather products for example wallets and belts as well as branding samples for companies. Great for personalising gifts for birthdays and anniversaries. You provide us with the leather and your artwork and we will engrave.

We can also cut leathers up to 3mm but it is advisable to do a sample.
