Our engraving is all performed in house in Edinburgh.
Below are sample pictures of past projects we have done. We hope that the pics below will help you to visually connect with us.
We have a retail trophy store, in Ferry Road, Leith with an engraving workshop at the back of the shop.
Keeping up to date with the latest equipment to ensure that whatever your needs we can fulfil them .
We don't expect you to be an expert, when you want work done so please feel free to ask us anything you wish to know.
Above shows a coated black plate which when the background is etched turns a silver colour. Anodising or anodizing, is an electro process to coat a natural oxide surface layer on the aluminium. This process allows for many colours of plate and high defination marking.
Long Doe's It Take?
We aim to meet whatever deadlines you have for all your engraving needs. As a general rule two weeks is a reasonable time for us to order materials that are non-stock and and getting the items lasered and ready for collection. That's not to say we won't engrave your items in 48hrs if you need them in a hurry however remember the artwork must be right.
See our artwork section.
Payments can be made at our shop or over the telephone with your card. Councils, Schools, Colleges, Universities and all Government Departments are welcome with purchase order numbers, as are
all the variuos NHS departments.
on Silver Salver
Diamond drag is a computerised machine process. This allows for a long lasting deep finish. Artwork needs to be converted to the correct format for this type. Items that are engraved like this are salvers, tankards, hip-flasks and nickel plate products.
Crystal Salver with
Hand Scribed Title
As is often the case with large silver cups this has been titled by hand. The ribbon colours of both teams are on the handles. This was to enable the quick removal for the presentation on live T.V. It's quicker to take the ribbon off than put it on.
Stamped University Medal
This bespoke university medal with antique finish has been stamped with the crest. The individual to whom it was presented has his name and date hand-engraved in arcs. This method is used in keeping with tradition and for adding a greater perception of value.
Annual Silverware Trophy
In the image above you can see our hand engraver cutting the name into a large cup. In the background you will see some of his tools and the bright light required for this intricate work. This is something that is used on mostly older trophies of the likes of golf clubs.

This is quite successful on round and square but not odd shaped bottles. An element of risk exists from this process so its not suitable for expensive vintages. It is good to try out on an empty one first. Although it's unlikely to damage it.
