Laser Engraving Services at Woodcraft

Did you know that Woodcraft has a laser engraving service?

I recently visited our Woodcraft Distribution Center which is a restocking facility for the company’s retail stores and where all catalog orders are assembled and shipped. This particular visit was to interview Rob Patterson, Woodcraft Warehouse IT Specialist.

Rob integrates our laser engraving services through the customer service department, designing and building fixtures, creating artwork for engraving products, and taking care of all computer network responsibilities.

Our laser engraver (below) works with the same type of technology as a printer, taking a file designed from a computer program and recreating or transferring that design onto the end product.

On the video below, Rob explains the technology, showing us the engraver is capable of not only engraving, but cutting through different material and material thicknesses. In addition to flat surface cutting and engraving, the machine will require a different type of setup for radiused product lines like the pen:

Check out these previously engraved items:


Woodcraft will choose the location on the tool for engraving unless you specify your preference by giving our customer service department a call. Product sets will have the same message engraved on each tool.

If a set of tools comes with a box please contact customer service to have the box personalized as well as the tools.

Character limits per line on each tool is 30. However, most tools and boxes will hold more characters per line at no additional charge. Smaller handled tools will old approximately 15 characters. Palm Handled tools will only hold 2 characters. Each product will have the character limit per line posted on the website.

Prices are per line, not per character.

This is a great and fast service, whether you are creating a sign, personalizing your tools or giving a unique gift that comes from the heart for that special woodworker in your life.

For Woodcraft’s Engraving Service or for special engraving services such as engraving on the box or additional characters per line, please contact our customer representatives at 800-535-4482 or email Custserv@Woodcraft.com with addition engraving instructions.

Auf wiedersehen…Frank

    I'm making a cryptex (Da Vinci Code) and i would like to have the clue to how it's opened on the round end cap. It's only about two inches to work with, and about 3 or 4 lines. Also, if you can, i'd like to have The Vitruvian Man on the other side which is square and has about three inches to work with. How much would something like that cost? Reply

    I make all wooden clocks. What wouid you need to duplicate the gears I need to complete a clock? Joe, your predecessor produced all my gears for me. Is the a particular drawing format your machine takes? Or can you scan a gear and dupe it? What ever you can do do help. Gears would be mostly Baltic Birch of no more than 1/4" and largest gear is 60 tooth abour 4-5" diameter. Thanks in advance. Randy Fogg if you have troubl with that email address you can try admin@yourexpertresource.com or call me @ 208-771-2222 and please leave msg if I am unavailable. I will get back to you promptly.

      This is a laser engraver, not a duplicator. If you want a burned design duplicated, that would be possible by copying/scanning in the design, and out putting the format in .eps. Reply
