Acrylic, Glass, & Ceramic

Our Laser Engraving system is able to mark acrylic, glass and ceramic with truly fine details.

Custom Engraving on Acrylic

Acrylic engraves and cuts very easily, comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and can be relatively inexpensive. Acrylic comes in two forms cast and extruded. Cast acrylic is used for almost all engraving purposes. This is because the frost produced provides a nice white contrast against the clear material. Acrylic & Glass Laser Engraved Extruded acrylic remains clear when engraved but does not produce an adequate contrast. However, extruded acrylic is ideal if you are going to vector cut only. Extruded acrylic is less expensive than cast and also has a lower melting point. The lower melting point produces an edge that looks flame finished when cut. What is the thickness that can be cut in a single pass with the laser is 18” or ¼”.

Custom Engraving on Glass

Glass engraving and etching with a Co2 laser produces a beautiful frosted effect, allowing you to etch custom logos and designs on glass. Logos, text (and just about anything else!) stands out even more as the laser creates a beautiful, frosted effect that makes your engraved design really stand out against the glass background.

Custom Engraving on Ceramic

There are many types of ceramic so the result can vary. Typically there is some material removal from the laser processing ceramic and thus an engraved mark is achieved. In some cases not only the top surface is affected, but also the underlying material. This is more common in commercial grade ceramic items such as earthenware. Industrial ceramics are typically much more heat resistant and have a better quality front surface. Because of the surface condition, engraving is usually of the very highest quality.
