Getting started

Photo Laser Engraving

Photo laser engraving is essentially laser engraving but with a lot more detail. The laser reads the the tonal qualities of an image much like a printer. Black areas receive maximum laser power, white areas do not get engraved, the shades between the two get a varying amount of power. You can achieve some stunning results where we can engrave photographic quality up to 1200 DPI on many different materials. 


Your image is key!

You send us your image. Your choice of image here is key to the quality of the engraving result. You need to make sure it’s of a high resolution of at least 300 DPI for good photo laser engraving results.

We then work on your image to make sure the laser machines read it as best they can.
