Engraving is the practice of incising a design onto a hard, usually flat surface, by cutting grooves into it. The result may be a decorated object in itself, as when silver, gold, steel, or glass are engraved, or may provide an intaglio printing plate, of copper or another metal, for printing images on paper as prints or illustrations; these images are also called engravings.
Engraving was a historically important method of producing images on paper in artistic printmaking, in mapmaking, and also for commercial reproductions and illustrations for books and magazines. It has long been replaced by various photographic processes in its commercial applications and, partly because of the difficulty of learning the technique, is much less common in printmaking, where it has been largely replaced by etching and other techniques.
Traditional engraving, by burin or with the use of machines, continues to be practised by goldsmiths, glass engravers, gunsmiths and others, while modern industrial techniques such as photoengraving and laser engraving have many important applications. Engraved gems were an important art in the ancient world, revived at the Renaissance, although the term traditionally covers relief as well as intaglio carvings, and is essentially a branch of sculpture rather than engraving, as drills were the usual tools.

Stopped by for some laser engraving for my forms 1.
They were able to get it done within the various areas and dimensions I wanted. Couldn't of asked for better help with the process.
I'm considering engraving all kind of random things now...
I do custom laser engraving. I'll post a few examples.
100 bucks each, shipped or picked up near Woodburn. May be a bit more cost if you want extensive artwork done. I've turned kids artwork into engravings.

Getting into beginner laser engraving and was curious if anyone was kind enough to donate any broken metal AR, AK, handgun mags; and Magpul furniture. PMAGs work as well, but I'm not sure if other brands contain PVC or Teflon.
Trying to stay local (Tanasbourne area) so not looking to get them...
Hey guys, I'm looking for someone to blazer engrave my buddies ar that I'm putting together for him. Nothing crazy I just want his kids name on birthdate on the upper. Preferably in portland area. Thanks
For your consideration...
A LEO friend of mine passed this along to me. This guy does some wicked cool engraving. He's based in Sherwood. He's also an FFL so no concerns there. Looks like he will also be at the Sheep Hitters at Oregon Rifle Works on August 17th.
So, I am working on another NFA Form 1 project. One of the steps, of course, is engraving the Trust information on said. I'll likely take it to a local shop as I've done in the past, or send off the part to a firm that specializes in said.
That said, out of curiosity I looked into what that...
I searched and found a similar thread from last July that did not generate any responses. I’m looking for an engraver who can do a quality job, e.g. not 1/2” letters across the side of the mag well. I am willing to pay for quality work.
I vaguely recall seeing a home engraving kit that came with at least one custom made template. It basically attaches on to the surface of the item you want engraved and you just traced inside said template.
Anyone know who makes these?
Have you used them for any projects?
I’m looking for a shop that does engraving for a Glock poly 80. I hear mixed things about if I have to have a serial number on them. I mainly want to done in case one gets stolen or if for some reason a local cop doesn’t understand the law. I asked a cop friend and he had no clue.
