2D or 3D? How to Choose the Right Laser Engraving

2D or 3D? How to Choose the Right Laser Engraving

We often get asked about the different types of laser engraving. How do you choose the perfect style for yours?

There are two main types of laser engraving:

1. 2D Laser Engraving. This style features crisp, clean lines, similar to a silhouette. With no blackened background, this style is perfect if you have a lot of detail in your design, or, if you want a more subtle aesthetic. 


2. 3D Laser Engraving. This type of engraving features a recessed and oxidised (blackened) background, which leaves the artwork design polished. This creates a contrasting effect, which allows the top of the ring to stand out.


Here are matching family signet rings - can you tell which one is 3D laser engraved?

For more examples, check out our 2D Laser Engraving and 3D Laser Engraving galleries.

Still unsure about whether to choose 2D or 3D engraving? That's OK, our designer can show you different options and help you to decide on the perfect option once you have placed your order.
