All our engravings are first hand-drawn on paper before they are engraved. We do not print-copy existing artwork to produce our engravings, doing so would hurt the quality of engraved artwork. Hand-drawing all artwork prior to working the metal ensures that the resulting print will be as clean, detailed and spot free as possible.
