Engraving

Here at WH Darby we offer many styles of engraving to complement our customers needs. We engrave past and current officer’s names onto slide bars for ribbons, short ribbons with top bars and presentation dates and names onto the reverse of jewels and medals alike. Our stock jewels and medals can also be engraved with your associations crest and or logo offering a more cost effective option to die struck and hand painted manufacturing methods. We also engrave onto trophies and salvers.

 

Machine Engraving uses our computer engraving system, allowing us to offer diamond tipped engraving (Shallow engraving) and milled engraving (deeper engraving). Alongside text, we can also produce engraved logos and crests for medals and jewels.

Hand engraving is the traditional method of fine engraving carried out by our master craftsmen using hand cutting tools.  This style of engraving has been the preferred method on many of our prestigious awards, or work that requires intricacy.
