There are countless ways to produce artwork on a particular medium, including painting on canvas, printing on paper, and embroidery on fabric. Laser engraving is another that is becoming increasingly popular for its precision detail, with laser engraving on wood used to highlight the warm and inviting natural autumnal tones that are popular all year round.
The list of reasons why you might require laser engraving on wood is limited only by your imagination. However, most jobs we see are for either functional or decorative purposes. Common functional purposes include sign writing for directional or promotional use, wooden business cards, architectural modelling, and engraving someone’s name for easy identification purposes. Decorative applications are far more versatile, as we can apply laser engraving to any wood pieces such as photo frames, wedding gifts, drink coasters, photograph recreations, corporate gift jewellery boxes, and much more.
Laser engraving on wood can be applied for functional or decorative purposes on many different types of wood, with mahogany, cherry, maple and teak among the most popular choices.
