Wood Engraving

Wood engraving on a rustic oak sign for Cherry Press.

Wood engraving produces great results with our top of the range Trotec CO2 laser engraver. Engraving burns the top layer of timber with an accuracy of 0.1mm. Different effects can be achieved with artwork and focus. We can engrave any timber including soft wood and hard woods with different results.

The many applications for engraved wood include branding, personalising products, wedding invitations, signage and decoration. We engrave one off products or large batches at very competitive prices.

Need more than engraving? See here for laser cut wood and large scale CNC cutting for thicker timbers.

Take a look at some of our previous work for examples of laser engraving.
