Best Resin, Glass, Crystal Product 2020

Congratulations to The Glass Scribe

The Glass Scribe was launched in 1983, from very humble beginnings, at a kitchen table, in Bedfont, Middlesex. Starting with a few select pieces of glassware, Simon and Gina Fletcher engraved trophies, awards and presentation pieces, for local clubs and companies.

As one of the fore-runners of commercial glass engraving, the company soon turned its attentions to the wholesale supply of everything concerned with this market. Today, they trade from a fully equipped 13,000 sq. ft. factory unit, based in Dingwall, Ross-shire. Their professional teams of studio, engraving, warehouse and office staff, offer an efficient service, along with friendly and professional customer care, to their UK and worldwide customers.


Best Product for Engraving 2020

Congratulations to Mastergrave

In 1977, Graham Luddington founded his engraving machine supply company. When the company was first formed, Mastergrave was the UK distributor for the range of Kantograph engraving machines.

Following the demise of Kantograph in Japan, Mastergrave decided to take over the production range of these popular and reliable pantograph engraving machines, which are still very much in demand. Mastergrave have certainly moved with the times and their range of computerised engraving machines and software, places them at the forefront of the engraving industry.

One of Mastergrave’s company policies is to invest in research and development to find ways of continually improving their products. Mastergrave now supply both computerised & manual engraving machines as well as all the tools and accessories associated with engraving.

Best Product for Personalisation 2020

Congratulations to HPC Laser Ltd

HPC Laser Ltd was established in 2006 when the need for high quality reasonably priced CO2 laser engraver and cutting machines was recognised. Since that time they have supplied thousands of machines throughout the UK and overseas, into just about every possible application you can imagine to some of the biggest names in technology, industry and education.

Unlike some of their competitors, HPC Laser are not simply “box openers” that import the cheapest overseas equipment and sell on at maximum profit, only to then close down when existing customers begin to need service and support. During their time in business they have worked tirelessly with their suppliers to continually develop their machines to remain at the forefront of quality, safety and value for money.

More importantly, should you encounter any difficulties during the life of your machine you will discover that HPC Laser Ltd are available to help, advise and support you.
