A guide to Fine Cut's engraving solutions

At Fine Cut, we understand there's not always a one-size-fits-all solution to your various labelling and nameplate requirements. That's why we offer a wide variety of engraving and marking services to make sure your products stand out from the crowd and your competitors.

Our experienced team of specialists will ensure the highest level of precision goes into any engraving or marking, to leave you with a high-quality solution with which you will be delighted. 

Precision engraving

Our fully-equipped engraving studio is able to cater for any product or service you require. No matter what size your material is or how fiddly you may think the job is, you can rest assured that our experience and expertise will be able to cope. 

A small selection of the products onto which we can engrave includes aluminium signs, cartridges, hip flasks, bronze rings and dies. 

Laser engraving

Also known as laser etching, our studio boasts state-of-the-art facilities that are able to engrave and cut almost any material.

Using many different CO2 and fibre lasers, we can use the majority of file formats - such as eps, jpeg and pdf - or alternatively we can reproduce the text or images for you ourselves, with painstaking care. 

Materials such as foam, leather, fabric, metals, plastics, glass and ceramics can all be engraved using this technology. 

iProduct engraving

The rise in popularity of mobile devices has been unprecedented over the last few years. It's expected that tablet and smartphone penetration will reach 50 and 75 per cent respectively among the UK population this year. 

To fully cater for this surge, we offer iProduct engraving. This is a great way to personalise your device or even add a special touch if you're giving one as a gift. 

It's no surprise the neologism 'selfie' was voted word of the year for 2013 - as a nation, we love personalising our social media pages. As so many people have iPhones and iPads now, engraving your name or a quote that's close to your heart on your device can help to make it unique and instantly recognisable. 

We offer this service on many different electronic appliances - MacBooks, Kindles and iPods to name but three. 

Hot foil marking

Hot foil marking is generally assumed to be the most durable form of marking or decorating one-off or volume parts. These can be have a complex, tubular, convex or concave surface, or alternatively they can simply be flat.

This process can be seen in all fields of plastic decoration, including automotive interiors and exteriors, packaging, toys and consumer electronics. We can help with any thermoplastic or duoplastic component that you require to be permanently marked, so it's instantly noticeable. 

We can hot foil products such as product badges, thumbwheels, warning plates, keyboard keycaps and automotive components. 

CNC Engraving

We use the latest CNC machinery to engrave on both flat and rotary surfaces. Our products and services include metal cutting, discs, tube engraving, sheep tags and lift panels, among others.

It is possible to engrave on metal, wood and plastic - in fact, on almost any material.

With Fine Cut offering good value for money, short lead-in times and a product of the highest quality, give us a call today to find out exactly how we can help you with your various engraving and marking needs.
