Just Castings Seal & Crest Engraving Service

Laser Crest Engraving 

What Is a Seal type crest 


A seal type crest engraving is a deeply carved reversed image traditionally carried out by one of a very limited number of highly skilled hand seal engravers usually taking in the region of 4 hours for a fairly simple crest & anything up to 6 or so hours for a complex one.

This highly skilled process has hardly changed in hundreds of years & when pressed into hot wax produces an impression to seal documents

Enhanced laser engraving

Modern technology can not quite replace what an artisan like a hand engraver achieves , however we believe the process which is being used by our own laser engraver is an exceptionally  good compromise at an affordable price.

Enhanced by hand when removed from the machine the majority (NOT ALL) heraldic crest designs especially heraldic beasts like Griffin's , Lions , Deer , Stagg , fox etc and arme and dagger or sword are almost indistinguishable from similar designs engraved by hand.

almost looks hand engraved

We have a small range of tried and tested popular designs available at a discounted price

Reversed
Crest

Any text engraved will be reversed & TINY
Arial Bold Font Is Best

Vector Graphic Drawing

Your own artwork .jpg .png or photograph (ideally wax impression)


Image is traced full screen size so it is imperitive your image is large and clear, the better the image, the more accurate and detailed the engraving

Then the image is reversed , that also means if there is a banner below with text , the text will be back to front once engraved so you will not be able to read what it says on the front of your signet ring , instead you will be able to read the positive impression made in hot wax seal. Arial Bold Is Best !

ALL OF THIS IS TRADITIONAL , BUT THE DECISION IS YOURS
