Brilliance laser ink test


#1

Found a Cermark alternative called “Brilliance” for $50. I haven’t tried Cermark or Laserbond so can’t really compare the results, but a heck of a lot better than the Molly I tried.

My first test runs at 600/full on stainless steel. It dries in a just a few minutes and wipes of really easily. No scrubbing at all.

Thanks for the review of it. Have you tried to scratch off the design to see how tuff it is?


#3

Also is it food safe?


#4

I believe the process deposits an oxide layer. I wonder if lasering it again will remove it like it does to anodized metal…?


#5

I scrubbed it with a magic eraser and there was no change so it seems pretty tough.

I hear ya on the difficulty in photographing stuff like this. I’ve been fooling with LaserBond and have the same problem documenting my tests. Are you going to test on any other metals? I tried some on brass and had less than desirable results. The lettering had a ghosting effect when I finished.

I hate doing product photography (because I suck at it)… that disclaimer out of the way - diffused light oughta help ya get there.
