We also specialize in custom wood engraving and cutting. Customers can bring in their own pieces and we will custom engrave any design or text into your wood. The cost to set up the job remains at $15. The per piece pricing depends on the size of the piece to be engraved or cut. The maximum size we can accept is 24″ x 18″.

This the time it takes to assess the piece, and then to mount the piece into the clamping device to hold it securely while engraving; measuring the piece and then placing the customer’s requirements within those measurements, then making test graves to ensure the work is centred and appealing to the eye, and then the actual engraving of the piece. This last procedure may take up to 10 actual engravings in order to maximize the depth depending on the material engraved. It usually takes between 30 & 40 minutes for this procedure.
