For 20 years Fundraising Brick has been laser engraving brick pavers and tiles. Our company developed the cutting-edge laser engraving technology making us the pioneer of the industry to create the most durable, safest and highest-quality engraved bricks in the market. Our laser engraving machines allows for a virtually infinite number of fonts, graphics, clipart, custom logos, brick size and brick color combinations.
We permanently engrave bricks with our unique laser technology. The laser engraving will last FOREVER - we guarantee it! The engraving, or etching, process is called laser vitrification, or just vitrification for short. The laser directs an intensely hot beam onto the brick’s surface and changes the composition of the clay into a dark, glass-like mark that stands out on the engraved brick or tile. The dark mark resembles volcanic glass and is absolutely gorgeous in natural light.
In addition to the endless design options from our laser technology, brick engraving is a much more durable and a safer method of designing on the brick’s surface. The dark, glossy mark on the engraved brick is permanent and, as a result of the intense laser beam, becomes part of the brick. No portion of the brick is removed, or blasted out, that would compromise the structural integrity of the brick. Nothing additional, like epoxy fillers or paint, are used to fill in the crevices. With even basic exposure to weather elements, the fillers in a non-laser engraved brick’s crevices can dry out, fall out and cause a safety hazard for anyone walking over the brick. Heels or assistive devices can get caught in exposed crevices and cause dangerous falls.
Overall, laser engraving produces a more lasting design that is easy to maintain and the ability for the customer to create a unique and meaningful design is virtually limitless.
