Decade Awards offers custom laser engraving services.
We laser engrave, etch, or mark on many products including acrylic, coated & anodized aluminum, Corian, glass, museum boards, coated steel, stone, marble, granite, genuine leather, wood and many more substrates.
Maximum engraving area is 36" W x 24" H x 14" D.
We provide quick and easy ways to permanently mark various metals using laser energy to produce a high contrast, high resolution mark.
Coated or painted metals have always been easily engraved with our laser systems, provided there is a contrast in color between the outer and underneath colors
Anodized aluminum products have always been a popular material for laser etching because the laser bleaches the pigment, giving it a nice contrasted white mark, without interfering with the anodization process.

Our laser engraving and laser etching services produce beautiful results using a variety of specially-designed "laserable" materials. These include acrylic, glass, wood, anodized or coated aluminum, brass, or steel.
What material can be engraved?
We offers laser engraving on many types of materials:
Acrylic can be be engraved very beautifully. It produces a sharp, clean and frosted image. Engraved images and texts can be color-filled. Engraving depth can be customized to your specifications.
Corian is a man-made material. When engraved, it produces sharp and clean image. Engraved images and texts can be color-filled. Engraving depth can be customized to your specifications.
- Woods/Natural Materials
Directly "burning" images on wood is one of our specialties. The laser power required here is often less than what it takes to cut through. Hardwoods like walnut, oak, mahogany and maple produce excellent results. Softwoods can be judiciously engraved but tend to vaporize at less-consistent depths. Hard papers and fiberboard work well; linty papers and newsprint are like softwoods. Finished leathers though can be laser-engraved with a look very similar to hot-branding or embossing. Certain latex rubber compounds can be laser engraved; for example, these can be used to fabricate inking-stamps.
Both cast and extruded acrylic can generally be laser engraved pretty well. Other plastics may be successfully engraved, but experimentation on a sample piece is recommended. Expanded plastics, foams and vinyl generally are candidates for routing rather than laser engraving.
We can mark a variety of metals such as coated or anodized aluminum, coated brass and steel.
- Coated metals
Coated metals can be engraved well. Our Laser engravable metal plates are manufactured with a finely-polished metal, coated with an enamel paint made to be "burned off".
When a laser is used to engrave on glass, it fractures the glass surface. With the right settings, excellent results can be achieved. Leaded Glass should be sand blasted or rotary etched only.
- Granite and Marble
Granite and marble can be laser engraved with extremely fine details. The depth of engraving can be customized to specifications. When laser hits the surface, it fractures such materials. Engraved images can be filled with paint for better contrast appearance.
