Engraving Your Gold Medals

There’s nothing more rewarding than having your name engraved on a gold medal. It’s a great way to show what you have accomplished, and it is something that can be put on display in your home. In order to have your medal engraved you need to make use of a professional engraver with experience in a variety of surfaces.

Gold medals are generally used to acknowledge a winner in a particular sport or competition. These items are very popular and are synonymous with victory and pride. If you win a medal you appreciate the detail that has been engraved onto it, which is why professional engraving is so important. Many businesses and sporting organisations make use of professional engraving services to personalise their medals and trophies, which are usually made from gold or other type of metal. Metal engraving is usually done using a laser tool as this provides a very effective and visually stunning end-result.

Engraving can be done on other materials too, but there are certain ones you should avoid, such as certain plastics. They tend to melt when they come in contact with the laser points, so they are not a very reliable surface to engrave on. Glass products make use of sandblasting, as it tends to crack when engraved.

Regardless of the type of sport you participate in, a medal is always something that is appreciated and used as a symbol of victory. People often take the medals they have won to an engraver, so that their names can be added or additional information such as a date or event location. Trophies usually make use of name plates, where a new name is added every time the trophy is passed on to someone else.

Professional Lazer Cutting Services

Lazer cutting is a popular process that gives you the ability to engrave or mark an object without using any tools or ink on the surface. Lazer technology has made this possible, and it is a popular process used on trophies and medals. A variety of surfaces can be engraved, making it convenient and giving an item a professional look.

Not all materials can be used for engraving, so it is important to leave this in the hands of a professional. Working with an experienced engraver will ensure that your trophy or medal looks professional and pleasing to the eye. This is a delicate process that requires precision, and it is especially handy for surfaces where printing is not possible. Items that are perfect for engraving include trophies, medals, badges, key rings and name bars.

Lazer Cutting on Other Surfaces

If you want to engrave plastics, be sure to avoid styrene products as they might melt in the process. Rather keep to acrylic plastics where possible so that your engraving can look impressive. There are some surfaces that might show soft edges or even ripples, so they are not recommended as it will have a negative influence on the quality of your engraved product.

One of the best surfaces to engrave is silver coated metal, and many businesses choose this for their name plates and key rings. Lazer cutting causes fractures in glass, so glass products are rather sandblasted than engraved. On wood surfaces, this process is referred to as image burning. A surface does not necessarily need to be flat for engraving, it can be curved and still produce great results.
