At Seattle Engraving we employ 3 main methods of creating signage.
Rotary engravers are computer controlled engraving machines that use a spinning
carbide cutter to engrave deeper than other methods and generally provides for a
more durable sign or tag. See a video of a rotary engraver
Although laser engraving has its limitations, it provides for a greater number of
materials such as plastic, wood, glass, leather, paper, and stainless steel.
Vinyl Lettering and Signs
A vinyl cutter is essentially a plotter for cutting vinyl lettering and graphics
which can be applied to a variety of substrates including glass, PVC sheets, automobiles,
and magnetic materials.
