We were established in July 1986 by the present owner Mr. A. Douglas. Our engraving company is based in a 1200 sq. ft. light industrial unit on the Surrey / Sussex border in the UK. Able Engraving and Design provide a nationwide engraving service and are able to undertake any work in stainless steel, brass, bronze, aluminium and acrylic.
The principal advantage of an engraved nameplate or etched sign is that the image is actually cut into the surface of the sign’s material by either a mechanical or chemical process the end result of which is an image that is permanent and cannot be defaced and can last for hundreds of years. Basically it’s like a permanent tattoo for your product. The colour of the image is applied after the engraving or etching process has taken place by infilling special paint into the cut away parts of the image.
