Laser Engraving

Bespoke laser engraving and punch making services

If you wish to submit laser engraving to us please complete the Laser Engraving Attachment form and send it in with your packet.

Laser engraving is suited to a wide range of items.

At the Goldsmiths' Company Assay Office, we are expert in using the latest laser marking techniques - not just for hallmarking purposes, but also to enable customers to add their own personalised touch. We now also have the capability to laser-cut hallmark and Sponsor's mark punches in-house.

Using a very fine high-powered laser beam, we are able to create a highly detailed hallmark. Laser marking is suited to a wide range of items (both precious and non-precious metals), particularly thin or hollow pieces.

In addition to hallmarking, this specialist service is ideal for your personalised messages, lettering, serial numbers, logos and signatures - on individual pieces as well as on bulk runs. We recommend our "3D" logos for specialist one-offs (this may incur a slight extra charge but for more information please contact us).

As well as hallmarks, our lasers can be used to create:

  • Logos
  • Trade Marks
  • Stone weights
  • Serial numbers
  • Signatures
  • Personalised messages
  • Lettering

Our bespoke laser engraving service is available for individual pieces as well as bulk runs, on both precious and non-precious metals.  It's ideal for branding your pieces or adding a personal touch to special gifts or commissions. 

For further information please contact us.  We can recommend the laser technique most suited to your pieces, and advise on achievable results. Please note for logos we require an Adobe Illustrator file or high resolution jpeg.

Please note, while we endeavour to meet your requested turnaround time for laser engraving its not always possible to complete during a Priority Hallmarking Service timescale. Please bear this in mind when you make your engraving request.
