Designing a high-end crystal engraving

DWS worked with a renowned French cognac brand on a completely novel offer: personalizing crystal items with laser engraving right in the boutique. This was a major challenge for the brand, since crystal is a fragile material that can develop permanent micro fissures. Usually, laser engraving on this type of material is done only with industrial machines. The artisan engravers at DWS worked meticulously with the material, determining the specific engraving parameters that would achieve the exact results required for the material.


Why choose laser engraving over mechanical engraving?

Maison Francis Kurkdjian replaced mechanical engraving with laser engraving to offer its customers more choices in terms of typography, color, and positioning on the bottle while fully respecting its style guide.

The key was to find a solution that could be easily rolled out to tens or even hundreds of points of sale worldwide.
