Design & Engraving

Idea Design

Our staff of artisans is committed to the highest industry standards in helping you capture your idea in beautiful minute detail. Once you approve the artwork, a model sculpt of your design is created by hand.

Artwork & Design Services

Digital artwork is helpful, but not necessary. Business cards, drawings, photographs, or your roughly sketched concept help to provide direction for our artists Digital images such as a JPEG TIFF file should be 6” X 6” minimum with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Tooling

The engraving process allows all of the minute detail from the sculpt to be transformed and reduced to specially tailored soft-metal dies. The dies are then heat-treated, hardened, and polished in preparation for final embossing /coining.
