Rotary tipped engraving is one of the oldest forms of signmaking using machinery. A high speed router bit cuts the background material away leaving a groove. The text or logo is made up a series of these grooves. The text or logo is then infilled with a epoxy paint finish. The depth of the groove varies depending on material but this depth of the engraved surface stands up well to the elements and vandelism as the background can be sanded, repaired, clearcoated, time and time again and the lettering is still visible. Engraved plaques are generally more time consuming to manufacture and are a little more expensive to laser etched plaques. Photos and images are not possible to engrave but keyline and vector images and logos are possible to be engraved into many surfaces. The epoxy infill can be any colour and design of your choice. Engraved plaques generally take 7 - 10 working days for delivery from artwork approval.
