Top Engraving related questions
What materials can be engraved?
Almost any surface can be engraved. Common materials that are engraved include metals (such as jewellery), glass, wood, stone, ceramics, leather, crystal and even phones.
How is engraving done?
Although traditional methods of machine engraving are still used, nowadays most engraving jobs are done with lasers. This gives the engraver greater accuracy and it means the job can be done more quickly. Lasers aren’t suitable for every material, but they can be used on jewellery and many types of metals.
How long does it take to engrave an item?
Delivery time varies from item to item and engraver to engraver, but you should normally expect to have your completed product back within a week. When you speak to an engraver on Airtasker, they should be able to give you an accurate timeline before they begin work.
Is there a limit to what can be engraved on an item?
The only limits are your imagination and the size of your item. Text, handwriting, foreign languages (such as Chinese characters) and images are all possible with modern engraving techniques. A general rule of thumb is that if it can be printed, it can be engraved.
How long does engraving last?
Engraved text and images have the ability to last a lifetime. Depending on the material, wear and tear around the engraving may make it harder to read, but this is a rare issue.
Can I see a preview of the engraving?
Most engravers will show you a graphic of how your item will look with your engraved design. This gives you a chance to make any changes before the engraving actually happens. However, make sure you agree this up front before you hire a Tasker, as not everyone offers this service.
What do engraving experts do?
Engraving services help to personalise an object and make it that little bit more special. Almost any type of material can be engraved, giving you the freedom to be creative with your message. Best of all, an engraved message is incredibly long-lasting.
Jewellery is often a special gift between partners sharing their love. Jewellery engravers can make that present even more special by adding a special message – something personal like initials or the date of the anniversary you’re celebrating. Rings, pendants and almost any kind of jewellery is appropriate for this gesture.
Clubs, schools and sporting bodies around Australia give out awards and trophies every year. A trophy engraver will make that celebration more special by adding details like the athlete’s name, the year and the reason for the prize. These small touches make a trophy all the more memorable for the recipient.
Despite its fragile nature, glass is a popular choice for getting a special message engraved. Often this is done as a present or an award, but many bars and cafes like to engrave their logo or name onto their glassware too.
Although many cats and dogs are microchipped in case of emergency, having engraved pet tags can help greatly if your pet should runoff. Personalised tags with the animal’s name, your phone number and your address can speed up the return of your pet if they go missing.
