The Cost Is In The Details
Purchasing a benchtop engraving system to create signs can be a great investment, if you evaluate all of the cost factors involved. Some may be obvious, others not as much.
Training Cost – The Scott SignGraver® engraving machine is easy to understand and operate. Along with its intuitive design, we offer a variety of short, informative videos on our How It Works web page. So training time, even for new staff members, is greatly reduced, which translates into long-term savings.
Operating Cost – Rotary engravers like the Scott SignGraver® machine are so reliable that you don’t even need a service contract. All of the components are well-established parts with long histories of dependability. And if you ever do need a replacement part, it’s easy and economical to install.
Materials Cost – Weather-resistant Scott-Ply™ and similar engraving plastics that we manufacture for our rotary engraving machines are often half the cost of materials for other styles of engraving machines. This is a huge factor to consider, especially since, over time, the total cost of engraving plastic usually adds up to far more than the cost of the machine.
In short, when you consider the costs of producing your signs over the next several years, and you factor in the “big three” of capital equipment, materials and labor, rotary engraving makes real economic sense. And the American-made Scott SignGraver® machine delivers the quality and consistency you need to create signs of every size and shape.
