Tankard Engraving Glass, Pewter And Logos Engraved

Tankards Engraved With A Logo
We love engraving tankards, it’s our business and what makes customers come back to us again and again. We are one of the very few companies engraving glass tankards in our local area in Bristol and we care about the quality of our products, not just the glasses we engrave but also the quality of the engraving.

Our tankards are available in several materials including pewter and glass and we use different techniques and machines depending on the material being engraved.

Pewter tankard engraving is quite a time consuming process, we use a traditional drag diamond engraving machine supplied, typically found in your local small business shop in the local high street. It may be an old fashioned way of engraving but the diamond tip digs deep into this soft metal and produces and engraving that looks great. We have faster fibre laser engraving machines which can mark this material however they do not penetrate as deep or have the same effect.

Glass engraving can also be carried out by old fashioned drag diamond machines but they are just too slow and do not create such a great job – this is where the CO2 lasers come into their own.

We use the most powerful, quality engraving machines manufactured by Trotec. These machines are capable of engraving glass tankards quickly and easily with resolutions up to 1000dpi! This may be slightly overkill for glass items but we generally engrave at 600dpi which we feel gives the best effect especially for high resolution logos with small details such as family crests.

We have engraved tankards for Raleigh, RBS, Vesta’s and many more companies.

Company Logo Engraving

Generally logo’s are provided by the customer and we ask for the highest resolution file available, a 300dpi EPS file in preferred over a low quality 72dpi downloaded from the internet, but we are usually able to sharpen poor quality black and white images and make them look great on a glass.

We import logo’s to be engraved into Coreldraw using the import facility, if the logo is provided in full colour we use the “black and white” bitmap conversion, if the files converts well without losing detail it can be engraved, although sometimes finer details or blurry areas may need to be retraced which is time consuming but possible using Coreldraw Photo Paint. To make the logo look extra sharp the outline trace smoothing option allows you to round jagged corners and provide a much better result.
