What is engraving? The definition of engraving is " to cut (a design or lettering) on a hard surface (eg. metal or plastic) with a sharp tool ".
And that is what we do exactly.
We cut with a sharp tool by means of the latest mechanical and electronic technology available. Skyline Plastic Works has invested
in the past and is still investing today in state-of-the-art machinery that enables us to provide all our clients' needs in the least possible time and the best finish.
We cut designs or lettering. Well, we actually can engrave anything our clients want; any design, any logo and any font. We cut on hard
surfaces, not only metals like brass, stainless steel and aluminium, plastics like acrylic and PVC, but also any kind of wood and glass.
The facia on which we engrave can have any shape or size you require as both the width and the the length can go up to large dimensions. The colour possibilities are also large. This depends on the material used, for example wood, brass and stainless steel have their own natural colour. On the other hand acrylic, aluminium or PVC offers you the possibility to choose from more than 44 opaque colours and 13 transparent shades, including Gold, Silver and Mirror. You can also select the thickness of the facia you need, from 2mm to 25mm
(1/16" to 1").
As our engraving machines are computerized and use the latest technology, including laser, any type of design, logo or font can be
engraved. The size is only restricted by the 140cm maximum width of the facia and can be any length from 3mm (1/8") upwards. With the exception of PVC and glass, which have their own infill colour, all the other materials used for the facia can have their engraving infilled by any colour of your choice. Any colour from the thousands of paint shades available commercially can be used. Through our vast experience, Skyline Plastic Works can also gives you the opportunity to use more than one
colour in the same engraving, thus the possibility to have your logo in its original full colour and not monochrome (just one colour).
We offer you a number of special engraving possibilities, like engraving in various different
languages including Arabic and also Braille, the language of the blind. When using transparent backing we can engrave from the back, giving
you the possibility to have a flat surface on the front and we offer you also 3-D Engraving. We can engrave on flat and round surfaces, example glass bottles and glasses.
As Skyline Plastic Works provides a large number of different products, Engraving can be combined with other products for original and
interesting signage. Example, the combination between engraving on transparent acrylic and Neon tubing provides a very interesting means
of advertising your logo or name.
What are the advantages of engraving when compared with other signage possibilities? The main advantage is the fact that engraving gives you a long lasting sign. This is achieved as the
facia and the engraved logo / letters are made from the same material, not made of different items or materials and glued together. Besides, when the infill starts to fade or loose its colour all you have to do is to bring the sign back to us and we will re-colour your logo / letter using the same colour shade or even changing it for a new colour.
