What is engraving “set-up”?
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, and then making test graves to ensure the work is centered and appealing to the eye.
