Start a Engraving Business


(285). Start a Engraving Business

Engraving is the practice of incising a design on to a hard, usually flat surface, by cutting grooves into it. The result may be a decorated object in itself, as when silvergoldsteel, or glass are engraved, or may provide an intaglio printing plate, of copper or another metal, for printing images on paper as prints or illustrations; these images are also called engravings.

For centuries, engraving businesses have personalized and decorated items for people and companies, and today the industry remains in high demand. If you are creative and want to use your skills to start your own company without a high investment, learning how to start an engraving business could offer a viable business opportunity. And though you don't need any formal training to become an engraver and start an engraving business, it's important to know that you'll need both creative skills and a good understanding of business practices to turn your engraving start-up into a lucrative business.  Engraving is very popular these days for many different types of people. Businesses need logos engraved on promotional items to give away at trade shows or to give to employees as gifts. And of course, engraved items like picture frames, jewelry and clocks make terrific gifts for friends and family. Engraved items such as flasks or beer glasses are popular gift ideas for groomsmen; engraved jewelry is a good gift for a bridesmaid. Schools and athletic organizations always need trophies to give away as awards. And with today’s technology, you can start a laser engraving business out of your home with minimal investment. All you need is a computer with design software, a laser engraving system and some room for storage. You will need to do some research on this important piece of hardware before making your purchase though. The type of engraver you need will depend on what types of materials and designs you will be working with. Not all engravers work with every type of materials, so be sure to define the types of products you want to be engraving before you make this purchase. Before you start your business, you need to decide if this will be strictly an online business idea or if you will also operate out of a storefront. An online-only engraving business can be a huge success so you don’t need a storefront unless you choose to have one. If you decide you do want a local presence, it doesn’t mean you can’t also have an online component to your business. You can also look into purchasing an engraving franchise. This option will be more costly up front but it will come with all the equipment and supplies you need to get your business going. Once you have decided where you will operate, you need to market your business. Take out ads in your local newspaper and magazines (wedding magazines, kids magazines, etc.) if you decide to have a storefront business. You can set up a booth at trade shows also. Consider professional trade shows targeting business people and wedding trade shows targeting brides and grooms. You’ll also want to do some online marketing to draw in those customers looking for engraving from someone who offers top quality work. The great thing about this business idea is that gift-giving occasions happen throughout the year so demand for your engraved items will continue year-round. And you are likely to get repeat business if your products are of high quality and you offer excellent customer service. You may even need to hire a staff to help you handle the demand.
