New Laser Engraving Machine Coming to Acorn Printing

At Acorn Printing we are excited to announce that we are diversifying our product and service range to include the engraving of glass, trophies, and other small products.

We are offering this service for small runs only, so if you have a low quantity of goods to be engraved, we are perfect for the job.

What Can a Laser Engraving Machine Do?

Laser engraving Machines use a laser beam to change the surface of an object. This process is mostly used to create images on the material, that may be seen at eye level.

This process does not use ink but alters the surface of the object’s material to create the desired pattern, logo, text or effect through a laser beam.

The laser part of the machine looks similar to a pencil, and it is this part of the machinery that makes it perfect for marking intricate details on to your products.

What Can I Get Engraved?

Whether its a one-off gift for someone that you would like to personalise, or whether you need to order several prize trophies for a sports club, we are perfect for completing these types of jobs.

We are happy to give tailored advice and guidance on when, where and how to approach engraving products and can be reached on our contact number: 0800 0190 552

How Should I Begin My Order?

While this service isn’t being directly pushed through the website yet, we are happy to take pre-orders of your engraved goods and these can be discussed with our fantastic sales team.

To get in touch, either call 0800 0190 552 or email us on

New Full Colour Screen Printing Service

We now offer a full colour screen printing service. Check it out in action in our video.

This new service means we can screen print more complex designs like the one shown in the video. We recently used this technique for printing t shirts for Newton Faulkner which produced a fantastic colour effect that wouldn’t normally be able to be achieved using traditional screen printing.

Normally, these kinds of designs require us to use our direct to garment printer, which gives great results, but means we’re limited to one t shirt at a time. This method of screen printing allows us to print 100s of t shirts per hour. Our work for Newton Faulkner we printed 800 t shirts in two hours.

What does this mean for our clients? 

It allows for a very quick turnaround of jobs and importantly it will be cheaper for you!

This method uses a thinner ink, meaning it works best with lighter coloured garments, particularly white.

Whilst we can use this new technique on any garment, it will work best on t shirts and hoodies.

Contact us today on freephone 0800 0190 552 or email for more information on our Full Colour Screen Printing Service and we can guide you in the right direction.

If  you are ordering personalised garments from us we’re happy to send out samples to you so you can try on the clothing for size. This is important for personalised clothing such as hoodies names on the back as you cannot swop the hoodie with someone else. Getting the right size is vitally important otherwise you won’t wear it!

Speak to us on 024 7669 4466 Monday to Friday between 9 to 5pm or email to find out more about samples and selecting the best clothing fit for you and your team.

What We Accomplished In 2017

Acorn in 2017

Looking back at 2017 Acorn Printing has accomplished a lot during the year. From sponsoring events to supporting local charity’s its safe to say we are making a positive difference.

We invested in a new embroidery machine which means we have the ability now which helps us to tackle larger order whilst still be able to run small jobs all with detail. We also sponsored the Balsall Common Festival 2017 for the 5th year in a row and it was spectacular and a great success.

This year has felt like we’re ever-growing and expanding especially when we were asked to create garments for the Romsey firefighters which is located near Melbourne in Australia which is 10,499.09 miles from Acorns premises.

One of our proudest accomplishments through the year has been our work with Billy Whiz. We created a variety of items that were personalised with the goal of raising donations for Billy after an unfortunate accident at Donnington Park. We raised a sum of £10,000 that we are extremely proud of.

These are just a selection of moments in 2017 and we hope 2018 is just as good.

Visit our Facebook page to find out more of what we have achieved.
