What is Laser Etching?

Artisan Laser Works Inc. uses laser light to etch into almost any hard surface. Because it is only the beam of light that hits the surface of your project, an incredibly detailed result is achieved.

What is Laser Etching all about?

It’s about personalizing your space.  It’s about reflecting your sense of style.  Combining art and technology, Artisan Laser Works Inc. will take your idea and turn it into lasting artwork.

How do we get started?

We start by meeting with you and creating conceptual sketches of your personal projects.  We develop your ideas into truly personal art pieces.  Whether you know exactly what you want, or simply where you want it, we help you through the creative process until your dream piece is realized.

What designs are available?

Because each piece starts with an idea, the selection is limited only by your imagination.  Let us help you tap into your creativity.

How large a piece can you do?

As big as you’d like, we’ll simply design it using 4’ X 8’ sections.

Where does this happen?

Artisan Laser Works Inc. is located in the Fleetwood area of Surrey, British Columbia.  We are minutes away from both the #1 Trans-Canada Highway AND the US Border Crossing in Blaine, WA.  Because of this we can easily service all of our clients across Canada and the Pacific Northwest.  Due to the highly precise nature of laser etching, all production must be done at our shop.

How long does this take?

We will work with you to ensure your projects are ready when you need them, whatever the deadline.  Generally though, including design time, file setup, testing and final run-time, projects have a 2-3 week turnaround.

What is the cost of Laser Etching?

All projects are priced individually based on size, material, design time and any additional finishing. Call or e-mail us for a free consultation and quotation. Click here to contact us.

Who supplies the materials?

We prefer that you supply the materials with a sample piece we can test. We can help you find a supplier.

Who installs my new laser etching?

Your local professional can install your finished laser etched product. Artisan Laser Works Inc. will provide maintenance instructions.

How durable will it be?

The laser light etches the surface of your substrate, so the more durable your starting material, the more durable your finished project.  Black Granite is the 3rd hardest natural material known to man (behind Diamonds and Rubies), so your piece will endure.  Marble on the other hand, is much softer and yields greater detail when etched, but needs to be handled with more care.  Our team can help you select the best type of material for your personal vision.

Is it environmentally safe?

Our team is proud to announce that no chemicals or abrasives are used during this process, ensuring a more environmentally conscious option to acid etching or sandblasting.
