LASER ENGRAVED AWARDS
We were asked by awesome Sydney product designers Chunk Design to engrave some aluminium awards for a Westpac award night. The small text needed high contrast to achieve excellent readability.
To engrave the aluminum awards we first layered up the surface with a coating that enabled us to permanently mark the surface via thermal absorption. Once this had dried, we engraved the surface and then washed off the coating.
Black engraved detail lent itself really well to the polished aluminium awards, the result was an impactful and highly readable design. Some text detail was just over 2mm in size and the process worked well even at this level of detail.
