Engraving a plaque or a sign is an efficient way to add a sophisticated twist to your signs.

We provide two different engraving services – laser engraving and rotary engraving. So, depending on your clients’ needs, we can offer you the opportunity to deliver their requests. Rotary engraving machines have specific functions that are unique to the machines such as an electronic surface detection system.

This feature allows the machine to automatically detect the surface of the material that it is going to engrave. Once it has been detected, the Z-axis adjusts to the material to ensure consistent and even depths of engraving. This method is most useful when engraving uneven surfaces, but is restricted to rigid materials such as Traffolyte, Acrylic, Brass and Stainless Steel.

Laser engraving has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years. It is now extremely user-friendly, faster and cheaper than rotary engraving. With laser engraving, it is possible to reduce the production time by a significant margin.

    Elite was very helpful and very easy to work with. I had an idea in mind of what I wanted and after a site visit from them I had my ideas brought to life with a CGI image and also a few other options which I was advised may work better. In the end I went with a mixture of both and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. I would recommend Elite to every business which are trying to improve there image and grow there brand. Thank you

    We purchased 10 custom t-shirts for our company, Twisted Spokes (part of JMW Solicitors). All t-shirts were excellent, exactly what we asked for and what are needed. They were delivered quickly and efficiently. Will 100% use Elite again, and will recommend them to anyone.
