Help/FAQ’s

How are your dice made?

We have developed an automated system for carved/engraved dice that saves us time and saves you money. We understand that dice (especially for prototypes) can be expensive.

After carving/engraving, the dice are painted with high quality acrylic paint to ensure that your dice last a long time, even with substantial use. We do not use screen printing which rubs off easily and can be printed with poor quality.

What is the difference between your carving and engraving processes?

Our engraving process involves a v-shaped cutting tool following the artwork outline at a constant depth. Our carving process follows inside of a text outline at a consistent depth. If two lines are close together the cutting tool cuts shallower to avoid going outside of the line. This creates a faceted carving that looks quite nice. Our process determines whether engraving or carving would look best for your design and adjusts accordingly. Often, we will employ both process to give the best results.
