Engraving

Diamond engraving.

Diamond engraving is the technique of cutting into the surface of sterling silver or silver-plated designs using a diamond tipped cutter and creating an indelible engraving on a product. Diamond engraving is the most traditional method used by silver smiths in this country for centuries and produces an elegant and classic look.

For one single item a set of initials, a name or a company logo can be diamond engraved at a cost of £18.00 per item.

For company logos or college crests please allow for a one-off artwork and set - up charge of £75.00 to create a new logo. Attractive discounts are available for corporate and volume orders and these vary according to the quantity of items ordered.

For initials or names we offer a choice of Roman, Script or Block typefaces and will submit a paper proof of your engraving for approval prior to commencing the work.

Laser engraving.

Laser engraving is a contemporary form of engraving using a laser which produces a clear and indelible milky white impression on silver and plated metals. It is best suited to re- creating corporate logos and crests, in particular where the logo is intricate and detailed and not suited to diamond engraving.

Laser engraving attracts a one off set - up and artwork charge of £75.00 per logo or motif. Unit charges for laser engraving vary according to the quantity of items ordered. Please ask your account manager to give you a detailed quote based on your order requirements.

LOGO REQUIREMENT

In order for us to supply you with visuals showing our products and gift boxes with your logo or going further with the creation of final artwork (technical drawings) for mass production, we need your logo to be supplied to us in its original form. It is basically the original ‘source’ file, which can be resized to any size imaginable without any quality loss.

It should be an OUTLINED VECTOR FILE, which file extensions could be EPS (Encapsulated Post Script), AI (Adobe Illustrator) or PDF (Portable Document Format).

If you have any queries in regards getting the correct logo to send to us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch directly with our Senior in-house designer to help you. Please call our office at 01483 281 417 or email Irene Malvezi at  irene@veritasgifts.co.uk
