About Engraving
 
Things Engraving Does Well:

· Provides precision of lines: able to reproduce very small characters; captures intricacies of type and design.
· Goes from a very fine line to a very bold line without looking tacky.
· Conveys a message of prestige and timelessness
· Imparts warmth and elegance of lines and images.
· Provides tactile impressions that translate as high quality.
· Produces bright, opaque, and intense colors that are not altered by the background shades or textures.
· Is unaffected by the heat of laser printers

Things Engraving Does Poorly:

· Does not cover large areas or blocks or color evenly without hand etching or screens.
· Production is relatively slow since dies must be made and successive press passes may be required.
· Preparation and execution are labor intensive.
· Colors are not derived from four-color process, but each color is applied separately and requires a different die.
· Engraving does not work well for two-sided projects*.
