MGD Engraving Services .fw


We have the ability to engrave onto various items in our range with absolute precision.

Engraving include details such as fingerprints, logos, personal messages, handwriting and nose or paw prints.

Engraving is a very exact way of personalizing your items.  Classic and timeless, all engraving at MGD is done with a CNC engraving machine specifically designed for jewellery.

The completed and polished items (ie. ring) is placed in the machine, and a specialty tool then removes metal by scribing on the surface of the metal to deliver evenly spaced lettering and precise graphics with a uniform look and a consistent depth.  Although precise, and perfectly formed, engraving is not always deep. 

Engraving takes a long time, and most of that time it spent on the graphics using specialized software and programming for the CNC engraving machine.  Therefore, you will most often be charged for a ‘Set Up’ and an ‘Engraving’ fee.

Smooth and polished surfaces is ideal for engraving.  Engraving on hammered or textured surfaces is not recommended, as well as any rings thinner than 4mm wide.

Please note that our engraving is done with a CNC Engraving machine and NOT a Laser engraving machine.

The bigger the surface area of an item allows for bigger letters that stands out and looks bold. The light is catching this tag perfectly to show the engraving.

Cost of engraving

The cost of engraving depends on the type of engraving we have to do.

There is always a machine set up fee, and standard engraving is charged per character.
