Features of Seattle Engraving Centers’ Firearm Plating Process include:

  2. PVD Coating: The inclusion of PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating provides enhanced durability and resistance to wear and tear. This cutting-edge technology ensures that the plated surface remains pristine even under harsh conditions, creating a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing result.

  3. Gemstone Inlay: Seattle Engraving Centers offers a wide variety of gemstones to choose from, allowing customers to add a touch of brilliance and personal flair to their firearm. The skilled artisans carefully embed the gemstones into the designated areas, creating a stunning visual effect that captures attention.

  4. Custom Engraving: With meticulous attention to detail, Seattle Engraving Centers offers custom engraving options that enable customers to experience their signature collection detailing intricate designs that showcase a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece that will be cherished for generations.

“Certainly, we’re excited about how the expanded facility will impact customers and partners alike”, says Gamil. “The increased scale will enable not only a higher throughput but equally important will be maintaining our focus on delivering high-quality customizations.”

“In 2022 in particular, we witnessed a healthy shift in the market of designing products like ours, but for SEC innovation will remain a #1 priority for us and in turn delivering unparalleled firearms to our customers. We’ll continue to focus on their needs and ensure that remains top of mind.”
