Best Laser-Engraved Gifts for Sophisticated Branding

If you’re looking to add elegance and importance to a branded promotional product, laser-engraved gifts are a great choice. Find out the unique benefits laser-engraved promotional products offer, and use our engraving tips to ensure your branding looks its best. Plus, from luxurious engraved fountain pens to practical engraved bottle openers, we’ll show you the trendiest laser-engraved gifts for your next event or campaign.

What Is Laser Engraving?

Engraving is marking a design onto a hard surface by cutting grooves into it with a steel tool or chisel. Engraving methods include hand, machine, rotary and laser. Laser engraving uses a hot beam of light to cut by melting or vaporising away the surface of the material. Compared to hand engraving, laser engraving requires more space for the necessary laser-engraving products and machinery. It’s currently one of the most popular engraving methods for gifts and giveaways because it’s cost-effective, fast and long-lasting. This makes laser-engraved gifts an easy way to add elegance and staying power to your branded merch.

What Are the Advantages of Laser-Engraved Promotional Products?

Laser engraving adds a permanence to your branding that gives it extra importance and makes your gift more meaningful. Popular occasions for an engraved promotional product include anniversaries and reunions, and they can also be gifted to employees you want to recognise as well as high-value clients.

What Are Some Engraving Tips for My Laser-Engraved Gifts?

Laser engraving adds a sophistication to your promotional gift. Leverage the sleek look of your laser-engraved branding by keeping these engraving tips in mind:

  • Essentials Only: Stick to the basics, like your name and the occasion, and only include a URL or phone number if you can do so without cramming the information in. Limit the lines of text so your message is as elegant as your engraving.
  • Stick to Simple Fonts: Avoid complicated fonts and use uppercase letters to make reading easy.
  • Add an Emblem: If you’re celebrating an anniversary, consider an anniversary pen like the Alpha Soft Touch Stylus Pen with Rose Gold Trim – Anniversary/Cliché. This pen comes with the anniversary year you choose engraved into the barrel alongside your logo.

What Materials Are Best to Use for Laser-Engraved Gifts?

The best laser-engraving materials are metal, rubber, glass and wood. Many of our laser-engraved pens feature a soft touch rubberised finish with anodised aluminium underneath. This means your branded imprint is engraved into the soft touch finish, revealing your logo in the colour of the underlying metal — usually silver, gold or mirrored. This process enhances contrast and gives you many more colour options for your luxury engraved pens, pen sets or other laser-engraved promotional products.
