Laser engraving in (precious) metals: done in our studio in Eindhoven
Where we still engrave standard text in the inside of rings with a traditional needle, we now use a laser for more complex engravings, like the engraving of logos, fingerprint engravings and handwriting engravings.
For the engraving of a fingerprint, we do need an accurate high-resolution image with clear (black and white) contrast for the best result. Preferably in PDF or JPEG format.
In the absence of a digital image, we can often scan and edit an image or fingerprint on paper in order to achieve an engravable image.
*If laser engraving is not possible due to the desired place of engraving, such as on the inside of a ring or on a round surface, then casting might be a solution. Of course, this only applies to the creation of new rings. The engraving can then be processed as a 3-dimensional object in the drawing of the ring and cast as part of the ring. Another advantage of casting is that there are more possibilities for gradual height differences in the engraving, but the disadvantage is that it is slightly less precise than laser engraving.
