i have tried to engrave some more tags today.
i took some pictures from google just to try it out.

but still i feel that the photo engraving are wery poor.
from some angles i can se the image quite good but from others it look like crap.
I found some settings on internet that i tried out but it got ewen more worse.
I have tried some different material to but still not good at all.

here are some picutres of some tags.
the first tags only look like that in just that angle.
am i expecting to much from the machine ?.

I think sometimes we expect a little too much from these..

We have to remember that the images are impact engraved and not drag/rotary engraved, so none of the media is being removed.. and the image therefore reflects the light differently and on different media too..

I was concerned enough that mine were pants to purchase from another company an engraved keyring and when it arrived I was shocked as mine looked better.. and when passed to a few friends of mine they said the same.

Maybe someone from Roland would be prepared to post with some sample engraved products so that we can get an idea of what we should be looking at.

Looking at the images, the tags look good.

Because it is surface engraving and not true engraving the tags will show good/bad from different angles, the light reflecting off will change what is visible.
