Engraving Awards and Gifts

Engravers, impact printers, dye sublimation printers and direct-to-surface UV printers can all be used for the professional personalisation of trophies, awards and gifts.

Customise Awards and Trophies with an Engraving Machine

Recognition in the form of an award, plaque or medal, is a powerful way to reward those who have worked hard, realised achievements or gone above and beyond expectations. Creating and selling these items is an excellent way for product or service providers to expand their business.

With an engraving machine that can engrave onto multiple materials such as metals, acrylics, woods, and laminates, popular items such as trophies, medals, badges, plaques and more can be produced and sold – increasing revenue opportunities.

From cost-effective machines to professional high-speed engravers, the EGX series of professional rotary engravers and desktop rotary engravers deliver precision engraving results on to a variety of materials.

Combine Engraving Technology with UV Printing for Unique Effects

Engraving technology can also be combined with UV printing technology to add full-colour and eye-catching graphics directly onto awards and other objects up to 100mm thick. Combine CMYK, White and Clear Coat ink for visual impact and unique dimensional effects, such as raised logos and textured patterns.

With Roland EGX series engraving machines, you can also personalise items such as key rings, trinkets, silver plates, urns and memorials, badges, plaques, knives and hunting items. Roland MPX photo impact printers are also a great way of quickly and easily adding text, photos, logos and other artwork to a variety of giftware items made from metal and acrylic, from souvenirs and plaques to charms and pendants.
