Welcome to Sahara Studios
wood engraving page.
We offer an exceptional engraving service on wood items. We can personalize both flat and cylindrical objects to commemorate your special occasions or corporate events.
The process by which we engrave wood is using a knife-cutter tool. The engraving is actually grooved into the wood.
This technique does not alter the wood color in any way. If the wood has been stained, varnished or painted, a contrast is usually seen on the item bringing out the engravings.
Example: If a piece of pine wood (which is very light in color) is painted with a dark paint i.e. brown, forest green, or burgundy or is stained, the contrast is amazing. The white of the pine wood contrasts beautifully with dark backgrounds.
Woods that are darker in color as oak or walnut, contrast less. Nevertheless, the engravings are visible.
We offer the reproduction of your company logos, designs and drawings on wood items.
The required files to reproduce these logos and designs need to be in a:
– black and white (no greys)
– converted to curves
– and saved in an EPS format
– Also note, PDF files may also work.
