Made in USA
Laser Engraving options
There’s nothing like a customised original Zippo lighter with personalized laser engraving. Zippo is still manufactured in the USA, and is regarded as the most iconic lighter in the world.
Engraved Zippos are priced from S$39 & up, inclusive of the lighter and the customised laser engraving, so there’s one for every budget!
As the pioneer of Laser Engraving in Singapore, we have customised thousands of Zippos over the past decade. We offer on-the-spot Laser engraving, using state-of-the-art German fiber Laser systems. Being Fiber-Laser driven & utilising top notch optics and Laser galvo & controller, our laser Beam diameter is the tiniest available hence the details and quality of the resulting engraving. Engraving by mechanical engraving or lower quality laser systems will absolutely pale in comparison.
Traditional engraving of Zippos are done by mechanical rotary tools (computerised or manual) that generate inferior results compared to Lasers.
Zippo utilises a myriad of materials and coatings for their lighters. Having engraved thousands of Zippos over a decade, we can suggest the best technique and type of engraving to be used for each specific surface of the lighter.
We engrave photos, text with a wide array of fonts & in foreign languages, logos, artwork, signatures, etc. Laser Engraving typically takes 10 to 60 minutes depending on complexity and how busy we are in the store at that moment.
We charge a subsidised rate of Laser engraving for lighters purchased in our store:
- Text engraving (unlimited number of words that will fit) : S$10 per side
- Image engraving (photos, artwork, logos etc non-copyrighted or own artwork please): S$19 per side
For lighters not purchased from us, a different set of charges will apply.
Volume discounts apply based on specific quantity and engraving.
We welcome you to visit us any time!
Please find below some suggested Zippos that are optimal for laser engraving. These lighters are like a blank slate, waiting for your ideas and designs to come alive!
Iconic, dependable, durable, classic, that is the Zippo Chrome lighter.
Add versatility when it comes to Laser engraving.
The high polish chrome Zippos are the most ideal for photograph engraving, for enhanced contrast and effect. Also, the chrome surface is more durable than many color coatings. The engraved portions with photographs are also not prone to finger print marks.
Satin chrome and brushed chrome is more suited to vector artwork, and not for photographs as the texture on them can distract from the engraved artwork in some instances.
Armor Zippos are reputed to be bulletproof and are the more robust variants with shells that are about 50% thicker than regular Zippos. They are characterised by the “A” Armor Logo located at the bottom of the lighter, and are slightly more rounded and heavier than regular Zippos as well. Armor Zippos are available in high polish and brushed chrome.
The most affordable Zippo is Satin Chrome #205 – S$29 only!
