I’m hoping some of you may know of a place that can do etching for
I do some designs on a computer, so a place that can etch from files-
Illustrator would be great- would be ideal. Since some of these will
be masters for cast copies, I don’t care too much about the material
etched, but do need both precision and a reasonable depth, so the
cast copies can be patinated and then polished, leaving the incised
bits dark. I’d be hoping to have it done on 14-16 ga metal.
I live in Massachusetts but don’t need this done locally. The
electronics places I’ve contacted haven’t wanted to deal with jewelry
designs, and the one etcher who was comfortable with jewelry didn’t
want to work with a deep etch. I am aware there are trade-offs
between depth and precision, and am hoping to find someone who either
already knows or who is willing to work with me to get the best
Any help appreciated!
