Laser engraving a pen is the most sophisticated form of customizing a pen with your logotype. Laser engraving involves the disciplined and concentrated use of a laser beam to mark an object such as a pen with a permanent brand.
As with all laser techniques, labeling a pen can be very complex. Often a computer with custom made software is used to steer the laser engraver and the head that projects the microscopic beam.
Laser engraving a pen is a superior form of customization because it allows for very precise and clean engravings to be achieved at a high rate. For this reason, leading Promotional Product companies have embraced this technology to produce engraved pens for their customers. Since the laser is so exact and microscopic in beam girth, the method does not involve any tools touching the surface of the pen. It is therefore ideal for branding high end pens with chrome barrels and silver.
In the engraving community, one often refers to these materials as laser friendly, including polymers and metal alloys that are receptive to being customized through laser. This makes it ideal for pens.
The demand for personalized promotional products such as pens has made promotional product companies more aware of the benefits of the engraving process.
Promotional companies have realized that by using a laser, they could tackle an engraving task with greater precision, and greater volume output as a result.
At one time promotional product companies who attempted engraving did need to use large pieces of machinery and expensive tools.
