Circular Laser Engraving

General Information

Circular laser engraving technique employs a laser beam to print on the surface of cylindrical-shaped items. Using a specifically designed device, the product rotates throughout the entire process. This action allows for a wide engraving that almost entirely wraps around the product. This procedure finds application on various materials including metal, wood, bamboo, glass, and ceramic. Circular laser engraving is a permanent and extremely detailed print. It offers a very elegant result and at the same time is one of the most resistant techniques overall.

Customization and Production Times

Circular laser engraving is a quick and efficient technique, reducing processing times and increasing overall productivity. This print has a series of remarkable advantages not to be underestimated. First of all, the great resistance of personalizations, the ability to reproduce very small details without problems, and the elegant effect of the print.

Colors and Materials

Circular laser engraving does not support the creation of color designs, as the chromatic effect is determined by the material itself of the product. Circular laser engraving does not color but engraves. The versatility of this technique is incredible, it can be applied on a wide range of materials including metal, wood, leather, plastic, cork, rubber, glass, and crystal. Each material gives a unique and refined appearance to the final product.

Maximum Number of Possible Colors

It is important to note that circular laser engraving does not color the material but engraves it. The final effect of the print will depend exclusively on the material's reaction to the laser beam. This peculiarity does not limit elegance but enhances it, as the visual effect obtained exploits the intrinsic properties of the material. Choosing the material accurately ensures the best result.

Facilities and Support Materials

One of the main advantages of circular laser engraving is the absence of specific facilities for its creation. All the equipment necessary for the process is integrated into the sophisticated laser control system. This makes the entire process more efficient and convenient, without requiring additional investments for the client. However, at the same time, it is more expensive than other classic printing techniques.

Engraving and Customization Cost

The cost of printing is mainly determined by the time required to perform the engraving on the product. The process may vary depending on the complexity of the design and the material of the gadget to be engraved. Circular laser engraving is slightly more expensive than other classic printing techniques. The result will be unique and elegant, offering added value that fully justifies such cost.

Products Suitable for Laser Engraving

Circular laser engraving can be applied to various cylindrical-shaped products. Among the most commonly used gadgets, we can find: water bottles, mugs, thermoses, pens, and glasses.


Before proceeding with the execution of circular laser engraving, it is essential to verify that the chosen material is compatible with the printing process. Applying circular laser engraving on wood and bamboo products may result differently from the proposed drafts. These materials, in fact, have veins that with printing can offer a light-dark effect that cannot be anticipated.
