Milling Options

Below we have listed some of our standard milling/engraving styles. We use these patterns to create dimension and highlight the engraved logos or graphics. Use this guide for inspiration or reference when ordering Black Diamond Products.


Linear Engraving Styles

Our Linear Engraving Styles feature a pattern of textured lines arranged inside the boundary of the shape. This style manipulates light to create movement, while adding a modern sophisticated look. Available in Vertical, Diagonal, and Horizontal.

Diamond Engraving Style

Our Diamond Engraving Style reflects light a multiple directions creating a bright ornate look. This muti-directional machining style generates crisp detail and dimension, perfect for almost any design.

Textured Contour Engraving Style

The Textured Contour Engraving Style features the same type of grooved lines; however, the pattern is engraved parallel to the border of the shape. This style is the best choice for small and very intricate shapes.

Smooth Contour Engraving Style

The Smooth Contour Engraving Style manipulates light in many directions creating a nearly holographic look. This engraving style works well for highlighting a graphic against a blasted or matte surface.

Standard Paint Fill

Standard Paint Fill comes in a wide range of hues and can be added to the engraved area to add color to the design. This paint style is opaque and covers up the engraved pattern underneath.

Translucent Paint Fill

Translucent Paint Fill colorizes the engraving, while adding depth and dimension. This paint allows light to travel through it, which showcases the engraved pattern beneath it.
