What type of materials can be laser-etched or engraved?

  Most non-metallic materials, including wood, plastic, corian, acrylic, glass, leather, specialty coated metals such as laser brass, aluminum, and anodized aluminum can be laser-etched or engraved. We also laser mark stainless steel. The depth can be defined accordingly. Glass or acrylic engraving with a CO2 laser produces a beautiful frosted effect.
What type of materials can be cut with a laser?

We have a 45W C02 Laser Engraver that can cut through thin wood, acrylic, corian, rubber and plastic,
What is Diamond Drag Engraving?

We use Diamond Drag Engraving to engrave metals that cannot be done with the laser engraver, such as brass & aluminum, or when the diamond drag look is preferred instead of laser engraving.  Diamond drag engraving is done with a mechanical engraving machine using a diamond tipped, non rotating, engraving bit.  Diamond drag engraving produces a beautiful, rich look in brass and aluminum.  The freshly engraved text or graphic can be blackened if desired using a special acid that will only blacken the freshly engraved area.
What are the size limitations?

  For most projects We can laser engrave material us to 12" x 24" and can diamond-drag engrave material up to 12" x 12".
Can A-1 Engraving Service engrave on curved surfaces such as wine bottles or baseball bats, or Jewelry?
