    I was referred to three places that could engrave down into the metal. I got a complementary name plate for my trouble. Excellent service!

    Joe Touchette is one of my best vendors. We've given him multiple volume orders with tight deadlines and he's always come through. His quality is top rate and he knows what he's doing. Highly recommended.

    Joe is a very professional and engaging person eager to please. Due to his past experience serving military clients my request concerning a set of unique aviation wings was handled quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend his services.

    Great customer service. Very helpful in creating exactly what I wanted. Speedy service. I was afraid that I wouldn't find service at last minute and at such an affordable price.

    Joe quickly provided me with a quote and made himself available on a Saturday to do the engraving for me. He was very kind, friendly, and took care of the work immediately that day. He did a great job consulting about what would be best for me to do, but also offered me multiple options for the font, etc. for the engraving - all at a very fair and reasonable price. I would highly recommend his services and will return to him, should I ever require engraving services again.

    Joe went above and beyond for my special beer glasses! He explained the process and helped come up with a plan to fit my family logo on the beer glasses without them breaking. The glasses turned out better than expected and he got them done faster than I imagined! I can't wait to use them at my wedding reception!!!

    I will definitely be returning to Joe Touchette for engraving services in the future. I had him engrave a personal message into a leather wallet for a Valentine's Day gift and could not be more pleased with his exceptional quality, timely service, and fair pricing. He worked with me to achieve exactly what I was looking for and always kindly answers my many questions. I highly recommend!

    Joe does etching on leather pieces that go on our lighting fixtures. I don't do a lot of business with him, but what I do, I'm very pleased with. He's a good guy and I enjoy yakking with him when I pick up our products.

    I have ordered items from Colorado Custom Services several times. My orders have included acrylic name badges, wood picture frames and Christmas ornaments for both work and personal use. Every order is amazing. Items are made exactly as ordered, the products are high quality and the service is outstanding. The costs are great, shipping is reasonable and the orders always come faster than I expect them. You can't go wrong with CCS.

    Joe does amazing work! He always does an amazing job and does it as quick as possible! I use him for all my engraving, and recomend him to everyone!
  • Ann M. Aug 22, 2013
    Joe is indispensable to my business! He does a lot of laser engraving of pens, name badges, glassware, and awards that I offer to my clients on a short turnaround basis, as well as smaller quantities,. Most of my other vendors don't offer that type of service and it allows me to be a more valued partner to my clients! Joe is awesome to work with!!!
  • Zahroh M. Dec 11, 2012
    Joe was very helpful, very patient, and very accurate with the services he provides. I am astonished with how well the work came out and the price was very reasonable. I recommend Joe to give customers an option to give tips.

    I ordered name badges for members of our Board of Directors. The order was processed smoothly and quickly. We received our order within a few days and the quality was wonderful. The layout and engraving were very professional. The pricing was very reasonable and less than quotes we had received from similar companies. We will look forward to continued business with Custom Laser Engraving.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Along with the continued development of graphics skills, my partners and I are always on the lookout for new processes and techniques to facilitate our ability to provide quality service and products.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Laser Etching Prices are based on: 1. Material being etched 2. Square inches of area to be Laser Etched 3. Complexity of what is to be Etched. This can vary from the very simple (for example, just a text engrave such as a name) to a much more complex image (a good example of this would be converting a multi colored complex business logo to a 1-color image for engraving, or converting a photograph for engraving) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I need all 3 pieces of information before I can give an accurate price quote. Pricing for embroidery is very similar.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was a Laser/Optics major in college. I purchased a laser for personal use, but was soon getting requests to cut or engrave from friends and by word of mouth, so I decided to officially open shop with a business partner. I was also getting requests from Military folks for embroidery services, so I opened up an embroidery department in order to better assist them. Our services have continued to grow as we saw a need for them. This led to a few other partnerships with other Specialty Service businesses. With the business resources we have at our disposal, we are able to provide quality work with fast turnaround times at reasonable prices.
What types of customers have you worked with?
1. Laser Engraving customer provided objects 2. Precision Laser Cutting 3. Converting customer supplied images into Vector Art 4. Digitizing Customer supplied Images for use in Embroidery 5. Embroidery Services
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
In order to give an accurate price quote it helps to be specific as possible. For example: I would like a quote for laser etching a sheet of wood. It is a clear coated maple binder. I would like my company logo etched in the upper center. The area to be engraved will be approx 4" wide by 2" tall."
