The Letter Box Shop offers two common options for numbering or addressing your letterbox. Both are permanent, but two very different processes.

Firstly the Laser ETCHING uses a Co2 Laser engraver, the stainless is coated with a Cermark coating, left to dry, Your numbering / address is programed into Coreldraw and sent to the laser machine. The laser works like a big printer that when the laser hits the cermak it etches a mark onto the face of the stainless steel. the cermark reacts with the laser leaving a matt black mark. the panel is then washed clean and packaged up. This mark is a permanent mark but depending on its enviorment can be subject to slight fading over time.

Laser CUTTING is where the panel is physically cut by a larger high powered laser machine, the number or text is cut from the stainless then we back the number cut out with black perspex. The back perspex is a deep dark black that highly contrasts against the stainless. As the numbering is cut through it is a permanent mark.
